Rated 5 out of 5 by What a relief I recently purchased this pillow and it really does relieve tension in the neck. I have a friend who has had cronic nect pain for a very long time, she had surgery because the pain was so bad. I let her borrow my pillow and ended up giving it to her because she had very positive things to say about it. :) May 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great for migraine and tension headaches I suffer from both chronic migraine and severe tension headaches (separate but related problems). I have found this to be great for instant pain relief (wont necessarily get rid of my headache but will significantly lessen the severity) and as a long term solution lessening the severity and regularity of my headaches. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone with any neck/ face/ shoulder tension problems or just general headaches. January 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love love this! Seriously this is an essential part of my life! Use it every single day. I incorporate it into my yoga when I am doing corpse pose at the end, and also at the end of my day just to relieve my chronic neck stress. I highly recommend this to anyone who has neck tension! It is HEAVEN !!!!! June 4, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not impressed For $29 + high cost of shipping & "handling", one can buy a lot of hand towels (pr use the ones you already own for free), roll them up to the thickness of the neck curve, and lie supine with the roll under the cervical curve. In fact, that is what has been recommended to me by several chiropractors, orthopedists & physical therapists. But to each their own. April 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does nothing at all for me I love health geasr and gadgets and Gaiam products. I was really excited about ordering this product but I am going to return it as it does nothing at all for me. Does not relax my neck more than lying straight on the floor. August 5, 2012

Answer: 
Great question! The Real-East Relaxation Tool is meant to cradle and support your neck. The Still Point Inducer works with pressure points. The Still Point applies gentle pressure to the parts of your head that will naturally induce a feeling of relaxation. Both of these tools will promote relaxation. It is up to your personal preference if you would like the support of the Real-EASE or the gentle pressure of the Still Point.

I was recently told that I have lost a bit of the curve in my cervical spine. Can this be used to help with that condition?

Answer: 
If this causes pain it should help with some relief and temporary correction. However it likely wont be a permanent fix. You would want to consult with your physician however to insure that this tool is appropriate for you.

Answer: 
Don't worry, the odor is coming from the plastic carry bag it came in. I use a cotton bag I made for it. No odor!

Answer: 
I haven't had any other complaints about smell, but that really does depends on the sensitivity of the nose on the person using it. It could be from the packaging, or it could just need a little time to air out. If you find the smell doesn't go away please contact our customer service department for an exchange or return.

Most people have shoulder width several inches wider than 11 inches. How could this pillow support a person's shoulders when the pillow is much narrower than normal shoulder width?

Answer: 
it's all in the design,the foam is shaped to hold the most important parts of the head and it doesnt take much to do that. you can completely relax your heads full weight and then your shoulders relax, it is great.

Answer: 
11 inches is the correct width (I measured the sample to be sure). Its wide enough to allow you to be supported enough to lay on it for 15 to 20 minutes. The item is not meant to be slept on and works in a similar fashion to a heart bench in yoga. For those your shoulders aren't resting on the bench at all but your spine is still properly aligned.

Answer: 
My husband also uses this tool. He definitely doesn't use it as often, but when he needs to loosen up any tension from a workout, it does the job.

Answer: 
Gender is not an issue here. Size of neck and increase or decrease of the cervical curve may make it more or less suitable for a person. But there is nothing here that can be related to gender.
