Spinal Support and Alignment is Essential for Healthy Sleep!
There is definitely a RIGHT way and a WRONG way to get your beauty sleep…
If you are waking up to neck pain, headaches, migraines, shoulder strains and pins and needle/ numbness… AND you didn’t go to bed with this pain… then something has gone terribly wrong in the 6 to 8 hours you spent in bed!
While back sleeping on a standard pillow we often lose the natural curve of our neck (C-Spine).
FACT: As we fall asleep and lose consciousness our neck muscles relax and our natural neck curve is no longer supported. This photo shows a standard pillow that does not support the sleeper properly. This reinforces the unwanted forward head leaning and a straightening of C-Spine (red line)
RESULT: Chronic tight muscles, morning pain and stiffness in neck and shoulders, reinforcement of poor posture.. and long term health issues.
Back Sleeping on the enVy Anti-Aging/ Anti- Wrinkle/ Wellness Pillow offers ergonomic neck support and supports the natural curve of our C-spine.
FACT: Our “bed” posture should be similar to our “standing” posture. This photo shows the natural neck curve (red line) which shows her forehead, chin and chest are all parallel to the mattress (dark line). This is especially important to those of us who spend much of our waking hours leaning forward over our computers, desks or any of the many jobs we have that reinforce this poor forward posture. Correction at night is essential for our wellbeing.
RESULT: A deep healing restorative Beauty Sleep.. and a pain free morning.
How is the enVy Anti-Aging / Anti Wrinkle Pillow Better?
THE SHAPE: Ergonomic Sloped Sides
Our perfectly engineered ergonomic sloped sides cradle your head into the centre of the enVy pillow. When you sleep on your BACK , Sleep Experts recommend that your ears, shoulders and hips should be aligned in a straight line.. relatively parallel to your mattress.
NOTE: A small pillow under the back of your knees is highly recommended and will decrease stress on your spine and support the natural curve in your low back. enVy Anti-Aging / Anti-Wrinkle pillow is designed with this in mind. The foam thickness at the centre (V Spot) of the enVy pillow is less than 4 cm to facilitate this proper alignment.
When turning to your SIDE these slope sides cradle your head into a subtle tilt of your jaw away from the pillow.
This is ideal for TMJ sufferers as well as those recovering from facial rejuvenation, face lifts, laser, IPL or just the avoidance of sleep wrinkles. Your neck will feel the wonderful neck support in this side sleeping position as well.
Additionally, the patented pillow has a strategic “scooped out” back which reinforces a head cradling effect.
THE V SPOT: aka the Sweet Spot
Improves circulation by distributing weight and reducing pressure points. In addition, the “bumps” enable air circulation to improve breathability and overall comfort.
THE SUPPORT: Unique Patented “Stepping Stone Design
Each enVy® Anti-Aging/ Anti-Wrinkles Pillow comes equipped with a 2 neck support system called it the “STEPPING STONE” neck support option.
No one is immune to Tech Neck (Forward Head Posture) so you may choose to adjust to the smaller neck support initially before advancing to the larger therapeutic neck support simply by spinning the pillow to the opposite neck support area.
The “stepping stone” of the enVy pillow is designed to “work up” to the optimal therapeutic neck support… or change neck supports as you need.

How Does the EnVy Pillow Help?

For the Side Sleepers…
enVy® tilts the side sleepers head away from the pillow relieving undue pressure on face and jaw..and off one’s shoulder. This allows the enVy® Anti-Aging/Anti-Wrinkle/ Wellness to be extremely effective in decreasing TMJ pain or ear pain.
The enVy pillow facilitates less pressure on the bottom shoulder of the side sleeper and has been recommended by Chiropractors to clients with shoulder injuries, chronic pain and the numbness/pins and needles that sleeper often experience while side sleeping. Shoulder problems are also often caused by referred pain from the neck. Therefore, stabilizing the neck during sleep is of paramount importance.Toronto Chiropractor, Dr. Tracy Kish, recommends enVy for all her “shoulder pain” patients.
