The old television show Gilligan's Island was probably the first mass-media exposure of the concept of a hammock bed. It's been a while since the days of Gilligan; now hammock beds are catching on as the next wave of sleep comfort. If you are looking for an alternative to your old lumpy mattress, here are a few things to keep in mind:
Hammocks conform to the body when properly hung, giving spinal support and offering many “toss-and-turners” a comfortable night's sleep in the same position. The end of tossing and turning means an increase in sleep quality.
A hammock bed offers gentle rocking motions that can lull you into a restful sleep. Many waterbed owners were tempted by the idea that the gentle rocking would do the same thing. Too bad for these people when their beds began to leak or when the heating elements failed. Hammock beds need no electricity or water to make them work properly, just gravity!
A hammock bed is easy to clean, store, and replace-many are far more inexpensive than today's mattress and box spring combinations.
If you are looking for a replacement for your old mattress, consider the hammock for a gentle night's sleep and a fun alternative to tossing and turning.
