What are memory foam health benefits?

Widely known for their superior levels of comfort and their ability to mould to the shape of our bodies, memory foam mattresses have become a staple in our homes. However, due to the hype surrounding their superior comfort levels, the significant health benefits of memory foam mattresses are often overlooked.

A memory foam mattress can benefit every part of your body. It can ease muscle pain whilst simultaneously promoting air circulation, allowing your body to breathe. Sleeping in a cool, healthy and clean environment are just a couple of health benefits you can expect from your memory foam mattress.

Memory foam health advantages: Helping your body from head to toe

Memory foam mattresses works to improve and benefit every part of your body, easing muscle pain and providing a fantastic sleeping surface. The open cell construction of the visco-elastic material allows air to circulate, giving you a cooler and more restful night’s sleep whilst allowing your body to breathe.

Head and neck

Memory foam pillows cradle and support your head and neck, helping you to get a restful and comfortable night’s sleep. Thanks to the full support that memory foam products offer for your head, there won’t be any strain, stiffness or tension when you sleep. The construction of the mattress can also ease and sometimes eradicate sleeping disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnoea as it helps to relax the body and keep airways open.


Memory foam can also offer exceptional support to side sleepers and reduce sleep-related aches and pains. If you often wake up with pain or stiffness in your shoulders, then it is likely that you haven’t been able to sink them properly into the mattress to remove the pressure placed on them by your body. Memory Foam will allow your shoulders or elbows to sink in and support the rest of your weight. It is also a recommended material for those who suffer from frozen shoulder syndrome (Adhesive Capsulitis) as the viscoelastic material will ease pressure points and reduce unnecessary strain.

Back and spine

When sleeping on a traditional mattress, your spine tends to bend to accommodate its shape. This isn’t the case with memory foam, which has been expertly designed to mould to the shape of your body and provide you with full lumbar support. Memory foam mattresses can also help with spinal alignment, reducing the risk of back aches and other sleep-related pain from becoming an everyday issue.

Hips and knees

Memory foam mattresses cradle your hips, allowing for a comfortable night’s sleep free from aches and pains. Memory foam contours to your entire body, spreading your weight evenly to remove the strain on your body’s pressure points. These mattresses are ideal for individuals with arthritis or other types of muscle and joint pain.

Ankles and feet

The foam’s visco-elastic structure reduces your tossing and turning throughout the night by acting as a shock absorber. Memory foam’s excellent ability to absorb shock means that it is the perfect choice for couples, as it can stop you from feeling mattress movement from your partner if they get up in the night.
