The world's first acupressure and magnetic pillow for insomnia, stress, anxiety and neck pain.
Medi-Max is a therapeutic massage pillow possessing both acupressure points and magnetic points. This is not an ordinary massage pillow. This is designed to reduce neck pain, stress, anxiety and insomnia. It increases relaxation through deep acupressure stimulation.
The invention of Medi-Max is based on the concept of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). TCM has its own basic principles of diagnosis and treatment, which constitutes the foundation of a systematic theory. It often refers to the study of human physiology, pathology, disease diagnosis and the prevention and control of diseases.
Medi-Max uses a traditional therapeutic method - acupressure - to relieve symptoms by applying pressure to one or several acupressure points. The acupressure therapy has over 5000 years history which is reliable.
Acupressure can be SUCCESSFULLY used for: Stress, Anxiety, Insomnia & Neck Pain
Every acupressure point has its own functions. Nowadays, many people are facing the same common conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, stress and neck pain.
An acupressure point is a spot on the body that is sensitive to pressure. This can be a nerve cluster or sensitive areas of muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and veins. Through the stimulation of acupressure points, your conditions will greatly improve.
Magnets are known to stimulate hormone production within the body. When magnets are placed around the head the magnetic pulses generated by the magnetic field will cause increased activity within the brain. This increases conductivity between neural pathways, which in turn stimulates the areas of the brain that are responsible for hormone production, namely the hormones serotonin and melatonin.
Serotonin is the hormone that controls mood, commonly associated with migraine, stress and depression. Melatonin is responsible for the internal body clock, it is associated with insomnia, seasonal dysfunction disorder and migraine.
Magnetic fields around the head will gradually, over a period of days, increase the body's levels of serotonin and melatonin. In addition, magnets are known to increase the blood levels of endorphins which are known as happy hormones as they give a euphoric feeling, they also are the bodies natural pain killers.
The combination of the increase of these 3 hormones will help prevent the onset of a migraine, or if you already have a migraine, it will be less intense plus the duration of the migraine will be greatly reduced.
The central area of the pillow is an Air Zone. This is a ventilation system to prevent mold and dust as to maintain your health. It functions as a natural conditioner which ensures the optimal air circulation and balances temperature. It greatly gets rid of your skin and respiratory problems.
We are used to thinking of insomnia as a symptom of stress & anxiety - and it is. Patients suffering from chronic pain often find their problems are compounded by insomnia and sleeping disorders. Day after day, it becomes an unwanted bad cycle.
Effectiveness of acupressure for improving quality of sleep.A medical research has confirmed that the acupressure is effective in improving the quality of sleep of elderly people and offered a nonpharmacological therapy method for sleep-disturbed elderly people.

Insomnia can wreck your mood. 40% of psychiatric mood disorders are preceded by insomnia, and insomnia sets in at the same time as another 20% of mood disorders.

Hence it is important to maintain your sleeping hormones such as serotonin and melatonin (as well as endophin) in a very good levels at anytime so that you will not suffered from insomnia. To achieve this end, acupressure therapy can help.
Does insomnia cause pain generally? Before trying to figure out if insomnia makes trigger points worse, a logical question to ask is: does it make any kind of pain worse? Yes, it probably does. “According to the majority of the studies, sleep deprivation produces hyperalgesic changes.”
Reference: Kundermann B, Krieg JC, Schreiber W, Lautenbacher S. The effect of sleep deprivation on pain. Pain Res Manag. 2004;9(1):25–32.
So, we applied critical thinking - does pain cause insomnia? or does insomnia cases (worse) pain? The answer is YES for both. They are in fact inter-related to each other. So it is very logical to solve this matter by getting rid of both conditions at the same time. That is, no pain no insomnia, and vice versa. Medi-Max can definitely help solve this matter.
The pillowcase is uniquely designed in two layers. The outer layer is made of absorbent and breathable polyester material; and the inner layer has a waterproof coating to keep the pillow core clean and tidy.
With these premium material we are pretty sure you will sleep like an angel and wake up reborn every day.
The acupressure points from Medi-Max simulates the manual acupressure. When you sleep on the acupressure points, the feeling is incredible. Some participants even fall asleep on this side because its too comfortable!
Unlike other ordinary pillows, Medi-Max would not be flatten out easily. The product is ergonomic design and durable. Your head and neck can be well-supported by the pillow perfectly.
