The Rise and Fall of the Waterbed

The waterbed rose to fame in the 1970’s, and by the mid 80's one in five owned one!   

The waterbed became known as “the bed” to have during the Sexual Revolution, thanks to Hugh Heffner and Larry Flynt.  Could the waterbed have lost the “love” it once held during the Sexual Revolution?
Since the introduction of the waterbed much controversial debate has developed over the “worthiness” of sleeping on a waterbed.  Many studies have been conducted; experts came to their conclusions, all while the waterbed went on a roller coaster ride from “righteousness” to lame.
The Last 20 years have seen a rapid decline in waterbed sales, but let’s bring the waterbed back to where it was meant to be, in your home!  First, the positives of sleeping on water, which we are going to detail over the weeks:

·      Total body support
·      Relief from body pain
·      Helping with Insomnia
·      Relief from Asthma & Allergies
·      Medical Facts

Total Body Support

“Pressure points” are created on a conventional mattress due to certain areas of your body having greater weight concentrations.  A waterbed hugs your shape, and, being full of water, it displaces the greater weight concentrations evenly throughout your body totally eliminating pressure points.  As a result of this weight displacement, your pelvic area and spinal column become more aligned, lessening the stress and pain which can accumulate over the years.  When your body is aligned, your blood circulates better, and with that you wake up more rested and ready to tackle the day.

     Next week we will discuss how waterbeds decrease pain and discomfort.
