The Chinese health concept assumes illnesses are to be prevented and not treated. The key to our health is in thus our own hands. It is up to us what lifestyle we lead, what we eat, whether we exercise or how we sleep. An appropriate length and quality of sleep are so important because it determines not only whether we feel rested, but also how our entire body functions. The Health Mattress by TIENS, thanks to its unique structure, helps normalize the biological magnetic fields in the human body, eliminates fatigue and improves sleep length and quality.
A person spends a third of their life sleeping. Therefore, Traditional Chinese Medicine claims sleep as the least expensive and most widely available method of staying healthy, one that also promotes longevity. Western medicine appreciates the value of sleep as well and recognises it as a basic requirement of the human body. It is crucial for the health of both body and mind.
Sleep regenerates the body, hence its deficiencies have a negative impact on our mood and look. One of the main functions of sleep is ”turning off” the activity of the central nervous system. During this commences its ”restoration”, i.e. the brain repairs any ”damage” and organises and memorises new information. This implies sleep cleanses the brain, and during it, various biochemical mechanisms are activated, which are responsible for long-term memory.
Sleep also affects the function of the immune system and the secretion of certain hormones, e.g. growth hormone. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, toxins are eliminated during sleep through the action of the lymphatic system, liver, lungs and the large intestine. Each of the elimination stages occurs between 9 pm and 7 am – in two-hour cycles, it is, therefore, important the sleep is not disturbed during this period. Otherwise, the toxins will not be fully eliminated, and this will reflect on how we feel.
TIENS offers a mattress, which – thanks to a combination of a magnetic field, infrared light and negative ions – supports the proper function of the cells in our body and improves their oxygenation. Sleeping on the mattress may help balance the biological magnetic field of the human body, relieve fatigue, improve the length and quality of sleep. This way the detoxification cycle will not be disturbed, which will support the health of the entire body. Additionally, the always-fashionable, classic design enables TIENS Health Mattress to match any interior.
TIENS Health Mattress comprises six layers:
The first layer is an anti-static jacquard fabric that ensures a pleasant look of the mattress and a smooth surface that is gentle on the skin.
The second is a layer of cotton with an anionic patch made from tourmaline. Anions, i.e. negative ions, have the ability to neutralise bacteria and fungi as well as harmful substances.
The third layer is an original TIENS technology – the Energy Star layer that uses the influence of the magnetic field and the semi-precious stone tourmaline. Magnetic, infrared and anion energy is released from 108 – in the case of the single mattress, or 156 – in the case of the double mattress – Energy Stars. The infrared radiation and negative ionisation are possible thanks to the presence of tourmaline. According to natural medicine, tourmaline is a protective stone. It reinforces and cleanses the mind and body, helps to fall asleep and fight anxiety and fear, it activates the body’s natural defence mechanisms.
Due to tourmaline releasing infrared radiation, the body can more efficiently produce enzymes and the ability of cells to self-regenerate strengthens. This radiation also improves the microcirculation causing an impression of a delicate, warm massage. The fourth layer is a fabric made of pure cotton, friendly to the skin, resistant to tearing and easy to clean. It ensures ventilation and moisture absorption. The fifth layer is a patch of bamboo coal powder with cleansing properties, which has the ability to intercept toxins from the environment and the body as well as to absorb odours. The final sixth layer is a 100% cotton fabric.
