We recommend a pillow that promotes good sleep posture. Generally speaking, a pillow with a contour is great, as it supports both the neck and the head. With that being said, the ideal pillow depends on your sleeping position, and your mattress. We recommend sleeping on your back, with a thin contoured pillow, but sleeping on your side with a supportive contoured pillow can be ok too. We don’t recommend sleeping on your stomach however, as it places unnecessary load on your neck

We accept eftpos and cash.

The cracking sound you hear is essentially gas being released from the joint when it moves. You don’t have to hear the cracking sound for the joint to have moved sufficiently

It’s like going to the gym for the first time, or going for a run for the first time in a while. Your body may not be used to it.
