My Rope Hammock is a lifesaver.
I was having a lot of trouble sleeping on a regular mattress. My hips hurt and if they didn’t hurt it was my back. I tried applying heat and ice. I alternated between the two and added painkillers and muscle relaxants. Nothing seemed to relieve the pain and tension.
Then I saw a magazine article that had nothing to do with back pain where it mentioned casually that the best sleep you could have was in a hammock.
I thought that was quite unlikely with your body folded up hanging in mid-air. It sounded nuts to me but I did look into it.
I asked a few people and soon discovered a lot of people I know have used hammocks with a great deal of success.
So I got myself a Rope Hammock, which comes with wooden spreader bars to keep the bed open and somewhat flat.
I strung it up in my yard using a tree and a fencepost about 15-feet apart and climbed in.
Once I got used to the rocking motion I started to find it soothing. My fear of being folding in half was unfounded and I ended up falling asleep in my new hammock.
By the time I woke up I felt totally relaxed and forgot all about my back and hip until someone mentioned I hadn’t rubbed my back during the time we were together.
The Rope Hammock changed my sleeping habits and took away my aches and pains in just a few days.
