Latex pillow

backsleepers

This is great for side and back sleepers. Latex is normally poured into the pillow-shaped molds with perforations, and the results are a spongy pillow. This pillow provides firm support to the neck but still soft enough for relieving any pressure on the head. The perforations on this pillow prevent any buildup of moisture and heat thus keep the pillow at the right temperature throughout the night.

Buckwheat pillow

These are good for stomach, side as well as back sleepers. The reason is why they offer benefits to all these sleeping positions is because they are completely adjustable. Buckwheat pillows are normally zippered cotton pillowcases that are filled with natural buckwheat hulls. They are flat beans which slide around and adjust inside the pillow when you move while sleeping. They are thermodynamic so will also remain at the same temperature all night long.

Memory foam pillows

These can also be used by back and side sleepers. They are heat sensitive and conforms the head and neck as you lay on it. The material used is normally advertised as molding to your unique shape, reducing the stress points then springing back to place. They are available in different densities and are hypoallergenic. The high the density, the more support it will offer and the better the quality. Most of these pillows are molded into contoured shapes and provide wonderful support to the cervical neck.

Magnetic therapy pillows

They have embedded magnets which provide a magnetic field around the neck and head when you sleep. They are touted as an effective and safe way of relieving pains and aches. They also keep your sinus passage clear and aid in breathing better when you sleep. If you get congested when laying down, you will notice a great difference with magnetic therapy.

These offer the comfort of soft and supportive memory foam but in the shape of the traditional pillow. They are thick and good for side sleepers.
