Pillows Made to Measure

November 30, 2011

Have you been snoring, waking up with neck or back pain, or just not feeling rested?

Have you tried to find a new pillow but without enough success?

A custom-built pillow may be the answer!


There are many different types of pillows on the market, including memory-foam contoured pillows, latex pillows, and others. The problem with buying a pillow “off the shelf” is that is doesn’t take into account your preferred sleeping position, your weight, the size of your shouders, length of your neck, or the type of mattress that you are sleeping on.


Pillows Made to Measure is a fantastic company that make customised latex pillows.? These pillows are made just right for you after you have been measured and filled out a questionnaire to address the factors mentioned above. At Caulfield Natural Health Clinic we can use a measurement tool to measure the width of your shoulders and length of your neck and a special questionnaire to assist you in finding a customised pillow. The questionnaire even takes into account your preferred sleeping position, age and type of your mattress and base, even your height and weight. This allows the company to formaulate a latex pillow that is designed to provide excellent support for your head and neck while sleeping.

Poor sleeping posture is another factor that may cause you to wake up stiff and sore. Pillows Made To Measure suggest the following:

Sleeping on your side with your top leg bent ?up? and twisted over also creates a lot of stress on your lower back joints and neck muscles, leaving you with lower back and neck discomfort in the morning.

Sleeping on your back with your elbows higher than your shoulders will tense your neck and shoulder muscles. This position causes the large muscles in your neck and those between your shoulders to over-contract and fixate, meaning you?ll wake up stiff, sore and unrested.

You can order directly from pillows made to measure at www.pillowsmtom.com.au or contact us and we can arrange everything for you.
