How to use the body pillow

Body pillow to support your sleeping position

If you are a restless sleeper and don’t feel well rested in the morning, the problem may be with your pillow. Just one pillow under your head may not always suffice for an optimal sleeping position, and many discover a wonderful, new feeling of weightlessness in sleeping positions supported by long body pillows.

The excellent support provided by the long body pillow enables your body to relax. The long body pillow supports the spine in a natural position, eliminating harmful rotation. This lowers strain and pain in the body, reduces the need to toss and turn, and increases the amount of restorative sleep.

Three ways to use a body pillow

  1. The top of the body pillow supports the thoracic spine and upper limb via the chest, preventing harmful back rotation and strain on the shoulders. In a well-supported position, the chest remains open and breathing is easy. The lower part of the body pillow comprehensively supports the legs from ankle to hip, facilitating a balanced sleeping position and no pressure is applied to the nerves on the hip or ankle.
  2. The body pillow can also be used behind the back to support the spine to take pressure off the shoulders and hips.
  3. You can bend one leg over the pillow while the other lies straight alongside it.
