CBD Wellness Centre has a variety of equipment to purchase. Outlined below is what we stock and some information about it.
CONTOUR PILLOWS – From $52.80 – $59.40
Contour pillows are ergonomically designed to support the natural curves of your neck and shoulders while you sleep.
Available in soft and firm densities, and small, medium and large sizes, means we have pillows that cater to everyone.
Its important to remember that, as humans, we come in all shapes and sizes and as such there is no one pillow that is perfect for everyone, however there are a few simple guidelines to follow when choosing your pillow:
- Make sure the density of the pillow is comfortable to sleep on – if you like a hard pillow opt for a firm one, if you like a soft pillow opt for a soft one.
- Make sure the width of the pillow fills the gap from your shoulder to your ear, holding your neck in a neutral position when you lie on it.
- We recommend sleeping on a pillow with a contour (wave) in it to support the curves of your neck. Our pillows have a high and a low side – the high for side-sleepers and the low for back sleepers.
It’s important that your neck is given the correct support it needs while you sleep to minimise the risk of joint sprains that can happen from sleeping in awkward or unsupported positions.
