Heveya®latex mattresses are designed with 7 comfort zones for maximum body support and comfort. Each zone conforms individually to the different parts of your body. The shoulder zone is slightly softer as our shoulders stick out more, while the middle zone is slightly firmer as our lumbar area, where the heaviest part of our body rests, needs more support to keep our spine in its natural position during the night. A firmer middle zone prevents the mattress from sagging and guarantees a longer lifetime of your mattress.
Proper alignment of your back as shown in the picture below is very important for your spine to properly recuperate during the night. The zoning also facilitates pressure distribution, which promotes a good blood circulation.. As a result, you will have a more relaxing and comfortable sleep and wake up refreshed.
Heveya® 7-Zone Latex Mattress Provide Proper Spinal Alignment And Optimal Body Support
Is it important to buy the mattress, bed base and pillow together? Yes, it is! Mattress, bed base, and pillow have to match each other. The combination of the 3 elements determines your comfort. At Heveya® Singapore, we offer you a complete sleeping system tailored to your personal needs. As people spend at least one third of their lives in bed, a comfortable and healthy sleeping system is important. Mattress Would you like a different mattress firmness level from your partner? No worries, we can offer you a King size mattress with two different firmness levels. Besides that some of our latex mattresses are made with 7 comfort zones with firmer zones for the head, waist and legs and softer zones for the hips and shoulders to allow them to sink deeper into the mattress without losing support. This way, the spine's curve is kept in its natural alignment, allowing your body to be fully rested throughout the night. Click here to watch 'Why is personalized sleeping comfort important?' Ergonomic adjustable slatted bed base Not only can our mattresses have personalised firmness levels for each partner, our bed base can also be adapted to each person’s desired comfort level. Indeed, our ergonomic adjustable slatted bed bases are equipped with flexible beech wooden slats which can be made softer or firmer just by moving the sliders in or out. A study by the Ergonomie Institut München supervised by Dr. Heidinger, Dr Jaspert & Dr. Hocke GmbH, aimed at studying the biomechanical properties of mattress and bed base, concluded that the combination of a latex mattress with an ergonomic adjustable slatted bed base outperformed any other combination, for example,spring mattress with box spring, in terms of spine support and shoulder support. Pillow The correct pillow choice will complete your total comfort experience. Your pillow should support you in such a way that when you lie down on the bed, your head and neck should be in the same position as they would be when you are standing upright. At Heveya®, we offer two different shapes of latex pillows: traditional and contoured. Traditional shaped pillows are generally softer than contoured ones. Therefore, for people with face down sleeping habits and softer mattresses, traditional shaped pillows may be more suitable. On the other hand, a contoured shaped pillow is especially suitable for side sleepers and people who prefer a firmer mattress.
Do you sleep on your side? If so, then your mattress needs to fulfil certain considerations to ensure you get the best night's sleep. Unfortunately, it's all too easy for side sleepers to wind up with shoulder pain or hip pain if their mattress isn't well suited to this sleeping position - and most mattresses aren't. Let's take a look at some of the unique problems with a side sleeping position, and what you need in a mattress if you're a side sleeper. What happens to your body position when sleeping on your side? Firstly, remember that it's almost impossible to maintain a perfectly symmetrical side sleeping position. When you lie on your side, your top leg will 'fall in' toward the mattress to rest on it, twisting your hips. When that happens, it's natural for your top arm and shoulder also to fall toward the mattress, as there would be no other source of support for it. The lower arm may either be tucked under the body or extended upward near the pillow. It is important to note that while you may think of a side sleeping position as a symmetrical 'leg-on-leg' position, in reality it's not that way. Instead it should be imagined more as an inward-turned position, where the sleeper is turning in toward the surface of the mattress. What are some of the problems with a side sleeping position? A side sleeper puts a lot of pressure on his or her shoulder and hip closest to the mattress, which can cause discomfort. Adding to that problem is the twisting of the hips and shoulders described above, which prevents the body from forming a natural alignment. If side sleeping is so bad, should I consider switching sleeping positions? There are many sleeping positions. It certainly doesn't hurt to try other positions, but odds are if you're a side sleeper then that is the position that feels most natural to you. In that case, you may not benefit by switching to another sleep position: it won't feel natural and therefore it may be harder to get to sleep and stay asleep in the new position. Each sleep position has its own set of pros and cons - there is no 'perfect' sleep position. Instead you may therefore wish to concentrate on transforming your side sleeping position into the most comfortable sleep experience possible. Some people have to sleep on their side Besides those who prefer to sleep on their side, you may be among the individuals who need to sleep on their side due to a medical condition. For example, pregnant women beyond the first trimester should avoid sleeping on their stomach or their back - leaving only the side sleeping positions available to them. Another example is that those who suffer from heartburn are recommended to sleep on their left side. And those who snore tend to get relief from sleeping on their side. Whether or not you have much choice about sleeping on your side, the good news is that there is a lot you can do to ensure your mattress delivers the high quality of sleep you are seeking. Softness vs firmness There is no hard and fast rule about the level of firmness you need, as it will vary from one side sleeper to another. But as a general rule, most side sleepers will need a mattress which is no firmer than a medium-firm. The reason for this is that side sleepers have a lot of contact with hips and shoulders, and on a firm mattress are more likely to wind up with back and shoulder pain due to these pressure points. In contrast, a softer mattress is more supportive for a side sleeper because it allows the shoulders and hips to sink into it, while the side of the body is supported by the mattress. This results in more contact between the side of the body and the bed, without placing uncomfortable pressure on the hips and shoulders. Mattress material Side sleepers need a mattress with unique properties of yielding to the touch, yet still being firm and supportive. This allows shoulders and hips to sink into the mattress while maintaining proper spinal alignment. Overall, the best choice you could make is a latex mattress, because it is a solid block of luxurious foam which allows a 'sinking in' while still offering good support for the spine. A second choice would be memory foam, but the main problem is that memory foam tends to 'sleep hot' - and you certainly don't want that in the warm Singapore climate. The worst choice for a side sleeper is a spring coil mattress, because you end up sleeping 'on top' of the mattress, creating hard hip and shoulder pressure points and preventing proper spinal alignment. In contrast, latex will allow the hips and shoulders to sink in softly, so there will be no uncomfortable pressure points. Other tips for side sleepers Neck support is important. A good pillow for a side sleeper should be firm enough to give good support to the head and not let it sink down too much. A dense and supportive pillow is best, and it also needs to be thick enough that the head remains level with the spine. A latex pillow is an ideal choice to fulfil these requirements. Additionally, you'll love the extra comfort you'll get with a latex pillow. This is not the most common type of pillow that people get, but it does offer the best for relaxation. Use a bolster or body pillow. It is a good idea to minimize the amount of twisting that the hips are doing. Hugging a body pillow or bolster helps to support your body and maintain a proper spinal alignment. If you don't have a bolster, positioning a pillow between your knees also can help your top leg to rest on your bottom leg. This can avoid, or at least drastically decrease, the amount of hip twisting going on, allowing you to sleep in a more comfortable position.
‘What are the Pros and Cons of latex mattresses?’ is a common question asked by customers looking for latex mattresses. If you are considering a latex mattress, you should be aware of its advantages and disadvantages. Let's take a look at these. Pros 1. Extremely comfortable. A latex mattress delivers ultimate comfort. When you first lie down on a latex mattress, you'll at first feel a soft sinking feeling, followed immediately by a buoyant supportive sensation. This is due to the natural springiness of latex, and it feels incredibly comfortable. 2. Promotes pain relief. Latex mattresses are an ideal choice for those with back pain or joint pain. Many health professionals such as osteopaths, physical therapists and chiropractors recommend latex mattresses for pain relief. This is because of the comfort and cushioning properties of the latex, as well as its ability to promote natural spine alignment. In any case, if pain is interfering with your sleep, a switch to a latex mattress could help you significantly. 3. Natural spine alignment. A huge advantage of latex mattresses is their ability to promote proper spine alignment. Heavier parts of the body such as the shoulders and hips sink into the latex, yet lighter areas are still strongly supported to align the spine naturally. The ability to support the natural curvature of the spine is a huge bonus for health and wellness, as well as keeping pain at bay. Furthermore, with this good pressure distribution, blood circulation is improved on a latex mattress. 4. All-natural. Latex is a natural product, produced from the sap of the rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis. The milky-white sap is processed into a comfortable foam mattress block. The springiness you feel when you lie down is entirely due to the natural properties of the latex. Because of its all-natural origin, you do not have to worry about toxic chemicals or metals being present in a latex mattress, unlike other mattresses. At Heveya® Singapore, we only sell 100% pure latex mattresses. 5. Natural resistance to mould and dust mites. Latex is naturally mould resistant and dust mite resistant without the use of any added chemicals. This factor alone is a huge advantage in warm humid climates such as that of Singapore. Other types of mattresses are either not resistant at all - resulting in big problems such as visible mould growth - or they are resistant but only because harsh chemicals have been added. You won't want to sleep on a mattress which contains dust mites or mould, and neither would you want to sleep on a cloud of chemicals. Hence, latex is the ideal choice for a naturally hygienic and healthy sleeping environment. 6. Naturally allergen free. Did you know that the vast majority of allergies in the bedroom are actually caused by the body's reaction to proteins produced by dust mites or mould? Latex mattresses are naturally resistant to mould and dust mites, so they simply do not contain these allergens. Therefore, those who suffer from year-round allergies may find relief with a latex mattress. 7. Environmentally responsible. When you purchase a 100% pure latex mattress, you are supporting the growth of the rubber tree. Tapping the rubber tree to collect the latex-containing sap will not kill the tree. Therefore, the production of latex mattresses encourages the growth of rubber trees. Plantations are carefully managed to ensure their growth is sustainable. The trees in these plantations remove carbon dioxide from the air, so you are helping the environment when you purchase a latex mattress. There is simply no other type of mattress which is as environmentally responsible. All other types of mattresses require a lot of synthetic ingredients and harm the environment instead of helping it. For those who want the ultimate in environmental friendliness, organic latex mattresses are available. This is becoming increasingly popular, especially among eco-conscious shoppers and parents of babies and young children. Organic latex is 100% natural latex which has been grown without the use of pesticides. Whether or not you opt for the organic variety, you can feel good about doing your part for the environment when you purchase a latex mattress. 8. No metal, therefore no amplification of electromagnetic radiation. The zero-metal content of latex mattresses make them very popular among those who want to sleep safely. In contrast, the metal springs in spring coil mattresses are believed to amplify electromagnetic radiation, acting like an antenna: this is not a good environment for our bodies to sleep on. 9. Excellent air circulation. Latex has a natural open-cell structure, allowing for good air flow. In addition, a series of pinholes are added during the processing of latex, and this increases airflow even further. This excellent air circulation makes for a cooler night's sleep - a big advantage in the warm humid climate of Singapore. In addition to comfort, hygiene is another benefit of the superb air circulation of latex mattresses. Perspiration does not linger or make a latex mattress feel damp. 10. Does not transmit movement easily. The natural resiliency of latex means that movement on one side of the mattress is not transmitted easily to the other side. This means that if you sleep with a partner, you will both be a lot more comfortable and will sleep more deeply than you would on a mattress which transmits movement. 11. Highly durable. Latex mattresses are among the most durable types of mattresses. They last a lot longer than other types of mattresses before needing to be replaced. This high durability is one of the many reasons for the high level of owner satisfaction with latex mattresses. Cons 1. Heavy. A latex mattress tends to be, on average, heavier than many other types of mattresses. That being said, all mattresses differ greatly in their weight, depending on the different types of materials present and their density. Overall though, a latex mattress can require a little more effort to move or lift. However, this is not a big drawback because it does not occur very frequently that you will need to move your mattress. 2. Cost. Latex mattresses tend to be more expensive than a regular spring coil mattress or polyurethane (PU) foam mattress. However, this is a case where the extra cost represents extra value. A latex mattress is more durable, and part of the cost increase is offset by the reduced frequency of replacing old mattresses. Another factor is the vastly improved performance that a latex mattress offers. You'll get a more comfortable sleep, healthier body support and a more hygienic way to sleep when you use a latex mattress. Furthermore, a very high-end spring coil mattress may quite easily cost more than a latex mattress, yet do not offer similar performance compared to a latex mattress. The take-home message from this list of pros and cons is that latex mattresses deliver a stellar quality of performance. There are many advantages and very few disadvantages to purchasing a latex mattress. You'll feel more comfortable, well rested, healthier and happier after sleeping on a latex mattress.
