EnVy® promotes optimal support in both back and side lying positions. envy® has been embraced by Chiropractors and other wellness professionals as a therapeutic device that offers superior cervical spine support in a never before ergonomic design. Each enVy Pillow offers 2 neck supports...its revolutionary design has a unique "STEPPING STONE" neck support option. As you adjust to the smaller neck support you can progress to the larger optimal support by simply turning the pillow to the larger neck support. The patented design of the highest quality memory foam construction allows for the optimal neck support whether sleeping on the back or side.
While back sleeping it places the patient’s neck in slight traction and comfortably cradles the head making it feel weighless..this prevents rotation as is often needed in patients recovering from injury or strain. Many clients report significant reduction in tossing and turning. The luxuriously smooth 100% bamboo pillow case is 3 x more breathable and soft to the skin.....All of which ensures you will have a comfortable and refreshing sleep...leaving you looking good as you feel in the morning!
While side sleeping, enVy® tilts the side sleeping client’s head away from the pillow relieving undue pressure on the jaw area. This allows the enVy® to be extremely effective in decreasing TMJ pain or ear pain. enVy also facilitates less pressure on the bottom shoulder of the side sleeper and has been recommended by Chiropractors to clients with shoulder injuries, chronic pain and the numbness/pins and needles that sleeper often experience while side sleeping. *Shoulder problems are also often caused by referred pain from the neck. Therefore, stabilizing the neck during sleep is of paramount importance.
