Hammocks promote good health!
Just take one look at a hammock and even the layman can see that you lie differently in a hammock than in a bed. Hammocks allow the user to lie completely relaxed.
Proper reclining technique ensures good lying posture, which can prevent back pain and helps the entire body relax.
Hammocks have also been proven to help users fall asleep faster. Swiss researchers in the field of neuroscience have determined that the gentle rocking motion of a hammock help the user fall asleep more quickly than in an ordinary bed.
The hammock is often an important component of therapy for the elderly, people with disabilities and children: vestibular and movement disorders can be treated by harnessing the turning and rocking motion of the hammock. The gentle rocking motion of the hammock is thought to resemble the womb and has a calming effect.
Children who suffer from hyperactivity and a lack of concentration can often relax and calm down more easily in a hammock. Hammocks can help dissipate surplus energy, relax cramped muscles and help the user find new methods of body control. In addition, motor function is improved to prevent it from interfering with other bodily processes in the future.
Lying in a relaxed position can also boost your receptivity.
In birthing centers, a delivering woman may use a hammock for the soothing, gentle rocking motion during labor and later as a hanging chair while breastfeeding her infant.
The hanging chair offers the perfect support for mother and child and a hideaway away from curious eyes.
Special baby hammocks can facilitate an infant's health after birth: baby hammocks protect and support an infant's rounded back and the hammock's soft borders give the baby a feeling of security. The gentle rocking motion helps develop the infant's sense of balance and coordination skills and has a positive effect on behavior in general. The relaxed posture afforded by the baby hammock relaxes the abdominal wall and prevents the infant from overstretching while simultaneously releasing gas.
