Everything You Need to Know About the Water Pillow and Its Benefits

The average person spends about a third of their life asleep, which goes to show just how important restful sleep is for the rest of your day. A good night’s sleep can mean the difference between energy and fatigue, productiveness and laziness, as well as, positivity and irritability.

Having trouble sleeping is an extremely common problem. Yet, many people don’t know how to fix it. With so many products and services on the market promising better sleep, it can be hard to know which option is right for you. New mattresses can cost thousands of dollars, sound makers and specialized fans can get up there in price too and expensive services like massages and sleep therapy can be tricky to navigate.

That’s where The Water Pillow by Mediflow comes in. Water Pillows offer a relatively inexpensive way to solve your sleeping problems. While most people don’t realize it, many sleeping problems originate from misalignment of your neck and spine as you sleep. A Water Pillow aligns the two, which helps you sleep longer and deeper. Plus, Water Pillows are extremely comfortable and supportive, making your sleeping experience more enjoyable. Spend less time wishing you would fall asleep and more time letting your body re-energize.

What is a Water Pillow?

The Water Pillow is a therapeutic type of pillow invented by Mediflow to help people maximize their sleep and wake up pain-free and well-rested. The Water Pillow by Mediflow is made up of a waterbase technology, which provides responsive support, and a top layer of varying comfort material, which helps you fall asleep faster. Gel Memory Foam, The original Fiberfill, and Elite Fiberfill are all favorite comfort layers of The Water Pillow.

How Does it Work?

The Water Pillow by Mediflow features an adjustable base, so you can fully customize your pillow to suit your sleeping preferences and support needs. Adding more water to the pillow makes it more firm, while adding less will make it softer. No matter how you adjust it, The Water Pillow moves with you so that your head and neck remain aligned all night. This prevents your head, neck, and spine from settling in a way that tweaks your body, which can often result in sore muscles and new or worsening knots.


Who Could Benefit from a Water Pillow?

The Water Pillow is perfect for anyone who wants to get a restful night’s sleep, especially if you’re concerned about spine alignment. However, Water Pillow benefits extend past specific pain points - for some, they are a vehicle to enhanced energy levels and general wellness. The Water Pillow is backed by clinical trials and thousands of 5-star reviews because it’s helped so many people improve their sleeping habits.

Because the Water Pillow is adjustable, it’s beneficial for all sleeping positions. This makes it an extremely versatile tool for improving sleep quality. The Water Pillow benefits:

  • The Stomach Sleeper

Stomach sleepers should adjust their Water Pillow so that it’s very thin. When laying on your stomach, your head needs minimal height from a pillow, as this would create tension at the base of the neck. Stomach sleepers can also utilize The Water Pillow under their stomachs as they sleep to prevent back pain.

  • The Back Sleeper

The Water Pillow can benefit back sleepers by allowing their head to line up with their spine. More often than not, back sleepers sleep with too thick of a pillow, making their head sit higher than their spine, which results in morning pain and, eventually, neck issues. The Water Pillow’s adjustability lets the head sit lower, side-stepping this common problem among back sleepers.

  • The Side Sleeper

Laying on your side results in a larger space under your head that needs to be supported by a pillow. Side sleepers should adjust their Water Pillows to a firm setting to fill that space and support the neck.

  • The Active Sleeper

Many people alternate positions as they sleep. For these people, the responsive support of a Water Pillow is especially important. These sleepers should adjust their Water Pillow to a moderate firmness so that they are receiving balanced support throughout the night.

Waking up well-rested and pain-free is essential to the success of the day ahead. Your sleeping habits are directly correlated with your energy levels, your health, and your mindset. Invest in yourself by investing in the original, tried-and-true Water Pillow. The Water Pillow benefits your body by providing it with the support it needs to rest, rejuvenate, and wake up ready to take on the day.
