It's more than Cotton Sheets...
Due to the internet and other forms of media exposure, most people would probably say that they recognize the important role a mattress plays in the overall sleep experience. However, often overlooked is the one component common to all of us in the sleep equation, the sheet!
The right sheet selection is of vast importance when it comes to setting the stage for the optimum sleep experience. If you have ever had the misfortune of sleeping on cheap, scratchy,, low-quality hotel/motel sheets, you know just what I mean There’s nothing worse when you’re bone-tired and looking forward to slipping in between cool, luxurious sheets, and finding out your sleeping in between two potato sacks imitating sheets. No matter how many times you toss and turn, or plumb up your pillow, it can seem impossible to find a comfortable spot anywhere. There’s no chance for getting cozy and drifting off to dreamland on those sheets!
At Relax In Comfort, we fully understand how important your sheets are, and we are committed to providing our customers with the finest quality sheets available. In our quest for the best, we have found our bamboo and cotton sheets to be at the top of the leader board when it comes to customer satisfaction. The soft colors and cool silky texture invite you to snuggle down and get cozy without feeling like you’re in a scratchy furnace.
When you think of bamboo, I doubt the concept of softness comes to mind, yet our bamboo and cotton sheets are some of the softest available, not to mention hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and far more breathable than a standard cotton sheet. Many of our customers feel their bamboo sheets feel softer to the touch than silk which makes for a cooler sleep. Living in Central Florida where humidity is a byword, having sheets with a natural wicking capability, is a great plus because sleeping ‘sticky’ is no picnic! An added bonus to bamboo being naturally cooler in summer, it is also able to keep you warmer in winter on those nights when our Florida temperatures take an unexpected nose-dive into the 30 degree range….Burr…
Our DreamFit manufacturer takes these ultra-soft, breathable fibers and weaves them into the smoothest, softest finishes imaginable. It will just take one touch to notice the difference between these remarkable sheets and most sheets found on the market today.
Additionally, these patented luxury sheets are the only sheets that are guaranteed to stay fit & stay securely on. This is due to their unique banding properties which place them head and shoulders above other fitted sheets.
One of the other wonderful benefits of these sheets is a One-Year Limited Warranty which covers any defects in the workmanship and material quality.
Don’t you think it’s past time to find out first-hand what a difference quality bamboo and cotton luxury sheets can make in your overall sleep experience? Stop by one of our four conveniently located showrooms and indulge your senses with a set of our 70% bamboo/ 30% cotton sheets and tonight find yourself having dreams fit for a king!!

There is an old, well-known adage that says, “If you aren't healthy living, you don’t have anything!” Living in a senior retirement community, this statement has certainly taken on new meaning for me! I’d like to rephrase this statement however, to what is much more reflective of the world I live in. I would change it to, “If you don’t sleep well, the health you do have is nothing!”
When I first moved into our retirement community prior to returning to the workplace, I liked to spend a lot of time at our neighborhood pool. It was a great way to meet new friends, and work on a tan at the same time! You also learn a lot when you are poolside as the ladies do their water exercises, and the guys float around. It must be a combination of speaking louder as we age (we don’t hear as well), and the water amplification, but you find out more about people than you ever really wanted to know.
Several things I quickly learned as I soaked in the sun, was that the majority of the people had more than sufficient income to now enjoy all the little extras they had had to forego for so many years as they raised their families, and second, most of them had so many illnesses and health-related issues, that the retirement years were turning out to be anything but ‘golden’.
I listened for hours on end about their multiple medications, medical procedures, and every ache and pain known to man. I can honestly say that the vast majority of these seniors found little to no real joy in their fancy golf carts, sports cars, cruises, and well-funded IRAs. I live in a senior mecca where your every wish and want has been taken into account, and where there are endless opportunities to experience anything and everything your heart desires. Yet, in the midst of this adult Disneyland, I quickly learned there was also great physical pain and suffering being endured by so many, not to mention sleepless nights filled with tossing and turning, back and shoulder pain, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and acid reflux. These are only a few of the issues seniors face that can quickly erode away the quality of their sleep experience. Unfortunately, no amount of money or material possessions can ever take the place of your healthy living, and a quality night’s sleep is definitely a large part of the health equation. I only wish I had known then what I have come to learn over the past three years! If I had known how critical the sleep experience is to your healthy living, perhaps I could have helped a lot of people experience greater quality sleep, and therefore, a better quality of life!
At Relax In Comfort we offer health and wellness products that can speak directly to the pain, stress, fatigue, and sleepless nights that so many of us face, especially as we age. Our main focus is to help our customers obtain the most comfortable and restorative sleep possible. This is accomplished by asking the right questions which aid in the selection of the best suited mattress for their individual needs. Once the mattress selection has been made, we demonstrate the difference adding a power adjustable base (in place of their standard box springs or flat foundation) makes in properly aligning their bed with the curvature of their spine. Remember that your spinal column is curved, not flat, and placing your curved spine on a flat bed results in lots of tossing and turning in search of a ‘no-pressure zone’. As body pressure lessens, and the spine becomes aligned, tossing and turning is virtually eliminated, snoring is greatly reduced, and pressure-related disorders are greatly diminished, breathing is enhanced, and the sleep experience is elevated to new highs!
As wonderful as cruises, custom golf carts, top of the line golf clubs, driveway pavers, and $1K palm trees maybe, none of these things will help you obtain a better quality of life. However, a good night’s sleep can be the first step in the right direction, because we all know that everything you do, you will do better with a quality night’s sleep!
So next time I see you poolside, and hear you complain about your aches and pains, and sleepless nights, plan on getting one of my business cards tucked into your water wings along with an invitation to stop by our showroom for healthy living demonstrating what truly comfortable and restorative sleep is all about!
See ya poolside…..

Relax In Comfort
Is more than a mattress store it’s a place to find some answers to your well-being
We have been in the wellness business since 1967 and truly love to help people find the best way to feel better through the products that we carry.
Mr. & Mrs. De Paulis started this business in 1967 with a strong desire to help people feel better.
The products that we carry at Relax In Comfort are carefully chosen to give you better sleep with State of the Art technology in bedding with adjustable sleep positions that have helped our devoted clientele throughout the years.
The beds that are compatible with adjustable power bases are now gaining much attention through the extensive research and development in sleep comfort and technology.
The adjustable sleep position is vital to a good night’s sleep just by adjusting the lower legs and torso. By just a few inches of elevation relieves the lower lumbar and releases the tight muscles that are often associated with sciatica, restless leg syndrome while promoting better blood circulation.
The upper torso elevation is just as important to free your breathing, opening up your air ways, taking pressure off your neck, shoulders making way to you being able to sleep on your back when you never could before.
Once our knowledgeable sleep educators have worked with you and your partner we are able to show you how you can sleep better every night for the rest of your life by sleeping in the elevated position of what is referred to as the “Heart Healthy” position.
In this position you are cradled allowing all your muscles and tension to be released from your body so you can fall asleep, stay a sleep and actually wake up in the same cradled position.
Imagine waking up with no pain!
I am asked often “How do I know if I am on the right bed for me?” My answer is simple just come on in and let our knowledge guide and direct you to just the right bed for you. Our #1 Best Selling and performing bed is the Comfortaire.
This mattress surpasses what all other mattresses can do for you. Through the innovation of the air adjust-ability and the combination of foam one can truly achieve customized comfort having the bed contour to your specific body.
At Relax In Comfort we offer other precise products that have been affirmed by such well known sleep experts such as Dr Breuss. His beds are made of latex and have been tested for comfort, contour to the body as well as longevity and luxury.
As often happens when you are welcomed into our store we genuinely ask what kinds of physical challenges you have so that can lead us to help you in the best way possible.
Come to Relax In Comfort and let us help you feel better too!

Can't Sleep? That Is The Question…
I don’t know about you, but I remember when as a teenager I could easily sleep until “the crack of noon”. Now I find at the age of, well let’s just say past 50, this no longer is the case. I have found that with each passing decade of life, both the quality and quantity of my sleep has .definitely decreased. Since these last decades of my life are considered “golden”, I knew a change in my sleep experience was necessitated if I wanted to enjoy life to its fullest. I was introduced to this beneficial change at Relax In Comfort, and my life has forever been changed! Better quality sleep had always been in my grasp, but no one had ever ‘educated’ me as to what was available. Times are ‘definitely a’changing’ as I age, and whether you like it or not, with each passing day they are changing for you as well!
From a purely physiological standpoint, I believe we can all agree that there are many and numerous changes that take place as we age. Unfortunately, changing sleep patterns are a part of the normal aging process. Most of my friends in my same basic age category have shared with me that they tend to have a harder time falling asleep and more trouble staying asleep than when they were younger. There has been significant research done to support the fact that our need for sleep doesn’t decrease with age, but remains fairly constant. When you add to that the fact that the new generation of seniors are generally more active than preceding generations, the need for the most comfortable and restorative sleep possible is a very viable fact if as seniors, we want our golden years to be optimum!
That being said, what are some of the more commonly recognized "Can't sleep reasons"
Snoring is one aspect of the sleep experience that tends to escalate as we age. Remember visiting your grandparents on vacation and hearing sounds similar to a speeding locomotive emanating from your grandparents bedroom, not to mention the walls that seemed to reverberate with every new breath? Snoring can definitely be a ‘deal-breaker’ when it comes to quality of sleep.
Insomnia can almost be a by-word for the senior adult. Staring at the ceiling night after night is not at all uncommon for the aging adult. Everything from counting sheep to drinking warm milk is offered as a possible cure-all, but rarely does this suffice for that ongoing, unrelenting cycle of tossing, turning and clock-watching that often becomes the norm and not the exception for many older adults.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is another common sleep problem that heads the list of chronic medical conditions that many seniors experience. If you have ever suffered with even occasional heartburn, you can empathize with those who continually face the pain of this unwelcome intruder!
Chronic back pain and pressure-related maladies often plague our seniors at a more intense level than in younger years. The stress of this pain and the ever-present pressure that is encountered every night, rob them of their much needed sleep.
These are only a few of the issues seniors face that can quickly erode away the quality of their sleep experience. Although at Relax In Comfort we are not medical professionals, nor claim to have the answer to all can't sleep related disorders, what we do have to offer, are health and wellness products that can speak directly to the pain, stress, fatigue, and sleepless nights that so many of the aging populace face. Our main focus is helping our customers obtain the most comfortable and restorative sleep possible through proper instruction as to the selection of the best suited mattress for their individual needs, and then adding a power adjustable base (in place of their standard box springs or flat foundation) to properly align with the curvature of their spine. Remember that your spinal column is curved, not flat, and placing your curved spine on a flat bed results in lots of tossing and turning in search of a ‘no-pressure zone’.
It is a well-known fact that the right sleep surface when partnered with the correct spinal alignment, provides optimum comfort and support, lessens tossing and turning, assists in the reduction of pressure-related disorders, helps lessen snoring and breathing difficulties, just to name a few benefits of sleeping adjusted
So, if like me, you are in those’ golden years’ and can't sleep, is having sleeping issues or just want to experience the most comfortable and restorative sleep possible, stop by Relax In Comfort for a demonstration of what a truly great night’s sleep is all about!

Gel Mattress or Gel Pillows for Sleeping?
Yes! People come into our stores and are very curious about the blue squishy squares that are on display with the Technogel Pillow series. They have asked, “Why would you sleep on this?” The common answer is “If you like to sleep cooler throughout the night, this is the answer.” But there is so much more besides the excellent temperature regulation provided by the Technogel sleep systems.
Technogel beds provide support to all different types of sleepers. The gel layers provide a 3-D deformation which means it molds itself to each individual body deforming in all directions (up-down, left-right and frontward and backward). This body support is completely different than what the typical coil, foam, memory foam, latex beds provide. These antiquated types of beds compress in only one direction (up-down). Therefore, Technogel evenly distributes over the entire contact surface which causes a weightless feeling and prolongs the life expectancy of a bed! Technogel beds have been proven to last at least 20 years without compromising comfort.
When we brought in the 3 Technogel mattress models to our show room, I felt like Goldilocks when trying the 3 bed choices. For me, there was one that was too firm, one was too soft and there was one that was just right. What they all had in common, is the incredible support to my pressure points. The Gel Mattress felt like they were accepting my curves and providing support in the necessary areas in addition to allowing me to shift positions easily! I didn’t feel like my body was sinking in to the bed which gave me the ability to get in and out easily.
Technogel sleepers have shown that they sleep 45% more through the night. Not only because of the support system in the mattresses, but Technogel lowers the contact surface temperature by 4 degrees since the body heat is dispersed away from the body. These are only the minimal benefits that Technogel beds provide.
We, at Relax in Comfort, are strong advocates of sleeping with elevation. Adding a power base to these already supportive Gel Mattress, provides over the top support and comfort. The power bases enhance the overall sleep quality to the cutting edge gel technology provided with the Technogel beds.
So if you want to sleep cooler, sleep longer, and wake up feeling better than you felt before you got into bed, Power Technogel Beds are your answer!
