I have a magnetic mattress pad on my bed, and the mattress pad contains 400 domino-size strong magnets and weighs 35 pounds. As long as I can sleep at home on my magnetic mattress pad, many of the aches and pains that I once had have disappeared.
I've slept on a magnetic sleep pad for the past few years due to pains from arthritis in both hips and chronic low back pain.....also wasn't sleeping well. I would wake up like an absolute cripple in the a.m., all hunched over and it would take me a good 2 minutes or so to straighten up. My experience has changed drastically since I started sleeping on the pad.
I started sleeping on a magnetic mattress about a year ago after I'd experienced such relief with magnetic insoles in my shoes. I thought that it was a bunch of hoodoo voodoo at first when I was first approached about using this modality. I thought that i knew a lot about alternative and complementary medicine but was a real novice in the magnetic energy field. I can tell you that over a month or two I realized that I couldn't/wouldn't sleep w/o the mattress and have a smaller one that I take with me when I travel. Like the insoles, I noticed the benefit over time, not an immediate earth shattering experience.
The mattress feels firm, but in a pleasant way. Because it molds, its firmness is a softened firmness. And by the way, it molds, it doesn't sink. It is perfect support and comfort for me.
A Critical Eye On The Latest Mattress Technologies
The most commonly reported problem consumers have with memory foam pads is that they sleep hotter when compared to conventional sleeping surfaces.
But sleeping conditions are influenced by environment temperature, the material's heat sensitivity and your own body heat.
How can you check if your purchase as good as a true Tempurpedic bed? You can try the wine glass test, the egg test, or the fridge test.
Many manufacturers claim Swedish foam was first used by the NASA Space Program to boost sales for their memoryfoam beds.
NASA never did use that basic material in the 1960s. NASA bedding or space bedding technology simply does not exist as such.
The truth is the Swedish Tempurpedic company did eventually come up with a reliable formula now used in the best-selling Tempur mattress.
While Tempur-Pedic beds are commonly known to use Swedish bed technology, not all such products made in Sweden are made of the so-called NASA bed foam.
