The importance of sleep cannot be overstated.
Did you know you cannot bank sleep? Also did you know sleep is more important than exercise to you overall health and well-being?
Let me explain the importance of sleep to your overall well-being.
I always thought 6-8 hour of sleep was enough. In fact, I knew friends and co-workers who bragged they only needed 5-6 hours at the most! In today's society it's bragging rights about how little sleep we get and how much we can accomplish! We are a modern society 24/7, 365 days a year. Does any of this sound familiar? Do you ever just unplug and focus on getting a great night of "restorative and rejuvenating" sleep? What is that you may be saying to yourself.
Sleep is a major factor in our health or lack of health. We Americans really don't have a grasp on the importance of sleep and how it affects our overall health. Did you catch the phrase " restorative and rejuvenating"? Most people I have spoken with laugh at that and ask "what's that". Then they proceeded with a list of health issues, aches and pains, and complaints about tossing and turning, waking up tired! Does this sound familiar?
Warning: poor sleep has been linked to a host of health issues running at epidemic an alarming rate with people of all ages.
Studies have shown it may increase you risk of the following:
High Blood Pressure
Mental Health issues
Sleep is necessary and should be a priority on everyone's list.
You can improve the quality of your sleep by making sure your bedroom is dark and cool, which is ideal for restorative sleep. Turn off all electronic devices, have it quiet, or get a white noise machine to block out distracting noises that may keep you awake. The most important piece in your bedroom is your bed or specifically your sleep system! Did you know more people spend more money on their bedroom furniture decor than on what they are sleeping on!
The importance of sleep is really overlooked considering that you spend a third of your life in bed! And most of us spend our sleep time tossing and turning!
Considering that 1/3 of your life is spent sleeping, where do you think the bulk of your investment should be made?
Where you sleep of course!
You owe it to yourself and for your health to make sure your sleeping on the best sleep system that's right for you! A customized sleep system could very well change your sleeping, your health and your life.
A great day begins with a great night’s sleep! The importance of sleep cannot be overstated!

The Latex Mattress: Are They All Created Equal?
That's like asking which is the better culinary choice, regular or Greek yogurt? Soft-serve ice cream or hand-packed? Obviously, the answer is “whatever consistency you prefer.” In much the same way, when purchasing a foam mattress, whether you choose Talalay or Dunlop processed latex, boils down to a matter of personal preference as to the way the latex feels to you.
Although the latex mattress is often referred to as being either Dunlop and Talalay, these two categories, both considered to be ‘natural’, aren’t actually types of latex or rubber at all.
They are actually the process each goes through to form the end result. As with yogurt, each processing method results in a different yogurt consistency, or thickness. Personal preference dictates your selection. (For me, it’s Greek all the way!). The same holds true for latex mattress selection.
Dunlop is the original manufacturing system that began in the late 1920's. In this process, the latex is mixed in a piece of equipment called a centrifuge. This mixture is then drained into a mold, placed in a giant oven, and baked. The materials in the mold will settle to the bottom, making Dunlop layers firmer on the bottom or underneath side. Dunlop-produced latex is denser and more durable.
The Talalay process is more complicated than the Dunlop. Once the latex is poured, the mold is sealed air tight, and a vacuum removes all of the air out of the mold. At this point, the mold is flash-frozen and stabilized. Talalay offers a greater selection of firmness levels. If you tend to like a softer feeling mattress with a pillowy-soft surface, your best choice will be a Talalay latex mattress. Take note that the additional steps involved in the Talalay process, although producing a more consistent cellular structure than the Dunlop process, it produces as well, a more expensive price tag.
Ultimately, the most important thing for the consumer to base their decision on, is which mattress feels more comfortable, will create the right support, and provide the individual benefits they find most important to their overall sleep experience.
Regular or Greek yogurt, soft-serve or hand-packed ice cream, Dunlop or Talalay processed latex…It’s just a matter of choice!

One of the benefits our customers receive when they invest in our power adjustable sleep systems is a noticeable improvement in their snoring. Some swear the system has helped them stop snoring!
Snoring has already become a laughing matter for most people. But what we do not often realize is that many conflicts have rooted from snoring and there are more that's rising even as we speak today.
Almost half of normal adults suffer from occasional snoring while an estimated 25% of them are known to snore habitually. It is good to point out that these figures did not choose to have fallen as victim to this nighttime dilemma. Instead, they just happened to be less lucky than most of us.
Driven by the need to stop snoring, customers often seek relief from various stop snoring products such as devices, pills and sprays. It must be realized, though, that there is still no sufficient data to back the claims of these products.
Change of sleeping position is not only comfortable, it can help you to stop snoring.
Most people find it intriguing that a change in sleeping position can actually produce some sort of "magic" when it comes to snoring. We are not talking of miracle cure here, this change of habit has logical explanations.
During sleep, our air passages must have room enough to avoid the collision of certain parts involved for breathing. If one is to sleep flat on his back, it is likely that the throat will be constricted in a way that the air passage is obstructed. However, when in an elevated position, these same passages will be clear from obstruction by causing your jaw to drop, your tongue to stay firmly planted on the floor of your mouth which results in a more clear passage way for breathing.
The result is not only do you minimize snoring, but now with the extra oxygen you receive from the better breathing, you will go into a deeper, more restorative sleep. When you snore, not only do you not breathe properly, but, you probably wake up often because of the sudden shortness of breath, loud snoring or someone giving you an elbow asking you to roll over. That interruption in sleep does not allow your body to consistently stay in a deep state of sleep and the results of that is either you wake up not feeling as if you are fully rested.
Eventually, snoring aggravates with age. And like aging, its gonna happen to us all.
I say it all the time...Father Time is UNDEFEATED. But exercising keeps you young longer and provide a better overall quality of life. Same with snoring. As we age, it doesn't get any better and usually gets worse. It may become present throughout the night no matter what form of control you would use as you get older. But, sleeping on a power adjustable sleep system will continuously help minimize the snoring you have as you age allowing sleep quality to be enhanced and thereby increasing your overall quality of life.

What is the World's Best Massage Chair?
A bold claim to be sure, and although claimed by many massage chair manufacturers, only one massage chair can truly be the best. The answer ultimately depends on what your expectations are and what level and style of massage you are seeking. In my 30 years in the industry, I have examined hundreds of massage chairs.
The first criterion of any massage chair is that it must be dependable - providing many years of trouble free service.
Second, it must deliver the type of massage you enjoy. Third, it must actually improve the quality of your life by relieving pain & tension and maximizing your overall wellness.
I am a big believer in the “One and done" shopping credo. Buy the best one time and be done. Many consumers purchase an entry level massage chair for under $2,000 and quickly outgrow its level of massage. Then they "upgrade" to a model they find online or at a national chain store for about $4,000. Within 3 - 5 years they again "outgrow" the level of service that massage chair can deliver. However, if you buy at the highest level, you will actually have a lower cost of ownership over the next 15 years and enjoy the best robotic massage possible every day. The best models range from $7,999 to $8,999. These models are often available with no interest plans which allow for a modest monthly payment which can be budgeted over time.
Let's take a look at the two best massage chairs on the market today.
The Panasonic MA70 was introduced in 2009 and incorporates several breaks thru technologies namely hot stone therapy, customizable personalized memory programming, & a reversible ottoman which allows for a leisure lounge chair and robotic massage chair, all in one! The MA70 is very distinctive in appearance and is available in ebony black and ivory synthetic leather. The MA70 has the longest warranty coverage - 5 years on all parts and 3 years in home service standard with every MA70. This chair delivers a very deep tissue massage and is ideal for those seeking relief from aches and pains as well as muscle stiffness and fatigue. Panasonic develops and then manufacturers their own massage components. The entire chair is designed and engineered in Japan, and is well known as the leader in massage technology and quality.
The Inada Sogno DreamWave was also introduced in 2009 and is billed as "The World's Best massage Chair" and millions agree. The Sogno delivers a total spa massage experience, with attention to every detail, down to the toes and fingers and the proprietary DreamWave figure 8 undulating motion seat air wave massage is beyond words. The Inada has the best choreography of motion designed by true Japanese massage masters. Inada is the quiet giant of the industry for over 50 years and they devote 100% of their energy to developing and refining the best massage chair possible. The DreamWave is available in more colors and has a 3 year parts and labor warranty standard. An extended 5 years plan is available at a modest cost at time of purchase. The Inada chair is 100% Japanese made & designed to assure the best quality components, and has been endurance tested for 2500 continuous hours of operation – equal to 24 years of average usage.
Both companies offer a "white glove" in home set up & delivery nationwide for an additional fee.
We are proud retail partners of both Inada and Panasonic as well as Human Touch massage chairs. While the Internet is replete with massage chairs, the first prerequisite is to experience the chair first hand. You cannot effectively evaluate a chair's massage experience by comparing square inches of massage or number of motors to operate the chair. You would not buy a car without a test drive and neither should anyone buy a massage chair without first taking a test drive. If you are serious about owning the best massage chair you owe it to yourself to try both the MA70 and Sogno DreamWave in person.
We have 3 showroom locations in the Orlando, Fl area and we welcome your visit to experience the differences in the comfort and privacy of our showroom. We are Florida's Original Back Care & Sleep specialist serving Florida since 1967. Learn more at www.relaxincomfort.com

When it comes to the ultimate zero-gravity recliners, no one exceeds expectations like Human Touch.
Known for the design and production of the “perfect chair”, Human Touch has long been recognized as the definer of comfort, wellness, and elegance.
Designed after the position utilized by the astronauts in outer space to help alleviate pressure upon the body, these zero-gravity recliners offer optimum comfort while providing an anatomically correct posturing for the back and spine when reclined.
Not only are these chairs aesthetically attractive and able to be incorporated into almost any décor, the health and wellness benefits and features of these state of the art chairs, place them a cut above anything else you will find in the industry. Extended lung capacity, relieving of muscular tension and soreness, and improved blood circulation due to leg-positioning above the heart, are only a few of the many features that make these chairs unique.
What more could you ask from your recliner? Well, now there is something more to add to your reclining experience. Human Touch has recently introduced a new zero-gravity recliner to their already outstanding models. This new model is the PCX720, and in my personal opinion, takes zero-gravity reclining to a whole new level. Not only are you able to place your back and spine into the anatomically designed position of zero-gravity at a mere touch of a button, now you are able to go BEYOND zero-gravity to even further reduce pressure on the vertebrae.
This extended position is the “PRP Mode”. The name was chosen due emulate the techniques utilized by professionals such as chiropractors and physical therapists, to further ease spinal pressure. The PCX720 has an unprecedented range of motion, which takes you smoothly from doctor-recommended neutral position identified as ZeroG, to the next level of deeper relaxation, improving circulation and providing even greater pressure-relieving for the vertebrae.
The key to this greater immersion into relaxation and pressure-relieving, is accomplished by the dual motor construction. This allows for independent back and leg rest adjustment. Additionally, the chair includes not only the one-touch Go To Zero option, but also includes two personal memory position settings. The adjustable neck pillow, articulating headrest, folding legrest, memory foam armrests, and built-in ergonomic control panel, are only some of the features on the PCX720 that further enhance your experience while relaxing in your recliner.
Human Touch has now made it more attractive to own one of these great chairs!
