Correct Sleep Posture
The only way to achieve a deep and restful night of sleep is through Correct Sleep Posture. Correct Sleep Posture dictates that your spine rests in a natural, comfortable position, is loosely perpendicular to your shoulders and hips, and your body is supported evenly throughout its length. The vast majority of mattresses on the market will force you to compromise on Correct Sleep Posture, which can leave you feeling tired and sore.
If you are sleeping on a bed that is too firm, your body, not the bed, does the work. Your shoulders and hips are not able to sink in, so they buckle toward each other resulting in a curved, stressed spine. In a sagging bed, your body sinks into a hammock position causing your shoulders and hips to pinch in, with your spine ending up unnaturally curved.
Sleeping with a curved spine not only creates severe pressure on its joints but also at the sacrum, where the spine connects to the pelvis. This is an important area where stress can be intensely concentrated, which can ultimately aggravate lower back pain. Furthermore, your muscles remain tight all night trying to protect your spine and are never given the chance to fully relax.
Sleeping in a bed that doesn’t contour to and supports your spine evenly can also create pressure points that result in poor circulation. Starving your body of the appropriate blood and oxygen flow can lead to numbness and tingling, robbing your muscles of the ability to recuperate at night. As a result, your body spends the night constantly adjusting, trying to get comfortable, and is never given the chance to rest and recharge.
The German bed’s unique sleep system is flexible enough to let your shoulders and hips sink in, yet resilient enough to rise up and support your lower back. In The German bed, your spine rests in a natural, more relaxed position for correct sleep posture.
