Heart conditions (stroke, by-pass operations, angina)
An elevated sleep position can help with circulation and therefore reduce strain on the heart, which aids relaxation and gives the chance of a better night’s sleep.
Stress and tension
Full body support and proper alignment of the spine leads to body relaxation which has been proven to assist with the calming of the mind.
Circulation Problems (high blood pressure, thrombosis, ulcers, oedema)
Sleeping with the legs raised helps to give a better night’s sleep by taking the strain off the heart. Also, the elevated sleeping position allows fluid to be eliminated more easily, thereby reducing leg swelling.
Sleeping with the upper body raised reduces the back flow of gastric juices enabling a better night’s sleep.
Breathing problems (asthma, COPD, bronchitis, emphysema)
Sleeping with the upper body raised and opening the airways helps breathing during the night ensuring less pressure on the lungs and better relaxation.
Joint problems (arthritis, back pain, slipped disc, sciatica, rheumatism)
Sleeping in a position with back and legs slightly raised takes pressure off the body thereby reducing pain and discomfort and ensuring a better night’s sleep which can help to make arthritic pain easier to manage.
