The following guide gives an account on Nagomi’s high quality mattresses.

Traditional Spring Mattresses

The traditional spring mattress has long been a bedroom staple across the world but with the advancement of technology, spring-free mattresses and other spring mattress alternatives have taken their place. “Nagomi” with a 7-10-year warranty, is the only mattress available in Sri Lanka that uses the Non-Spring concept. The spring mattress produces a lot of noise when a person moves during their sleep and thus it can often disturb a person’s sleep, that is one of the main drawbacks of the spring mattress. But with the non-spring technology you can have a noiseless mattress resulting in a peaceful sleep.

Nagomi Mattresses

Nagomi mattresses are mainly foam-based mattresses that have several layers of foam which enhances the following properties

  • Comfort

  • Body Pressure Distribution

  • Air flow

  • Durability

We use “Special Mixcel Cube Technology” and “Colour Foam Technology” which are originated from Japan to manufacture “Nagomi” mattress.

When manufacturing traditional spring mattresses, their height and firmness are obtained through spring structure, and different foam layers are used to give the mattress the comfort and plushness. But for “Nagomi” mattresses the fitness is obtained through the Japanese technology called “Mixcel Foam”.

“Nagomi” range of mattresses include 5 different types and several heights, so you are free to choose the best mattress that fits right to your requirements. We are committed to give you the best value for your money spent and we guarantee that it will be a substantial investment which will last for years to come.

Importance of Sleep

Sleep accounts for 1/4 to 1/3 of the human lifespan. Before few decades people believed sleep was a passive activity during which the body and brain were dormant. But now it turns out that sleep is a period during which the brain is engaged in a number of activities essential to life which are closely linked to quality of life. Quality sleep and getting enough of it at the right times is as essential to survival as food and water.

Sleep significantly impacts your brain functions including how nerve cells (neurons) communicate with each other. In fact, your brain and body stay remarkably active while you sleep. Recent discoveries reveal that sleep plays a housekeeping role which

removes toxins in your brain that build up while you are awake. A healthy amount of sleep is vital for “brain plasticity” (the ability of brain to adapt to input). If you don’t get enough sleep, your health risks rise. Symptoms of depression, seizures, high blood pressure and migraines worsen.

Immunity is compromised, increasing the likelihood of illness and infection. Sleep also plays a role in metabolism.

Science of Sleep

Throughout your time asleep, your brain will cycle repeatedly through two different types of sleep: REM (rapid-eye movement) sleep and non-REM sleep.

1st Part : non-REM Sleep

  • Between being awake and falling asleep
  • Light sleep (heart rate and breathing regulate, body temperature drops)
  • Deep sleep

2nd Part : REM Sleep

  • Eyes move rapidly behind closed lids
  • Brain waves are similar to those during wakefulness
  • Breath rate increases
  • Body becomes temporarily paralyzed as we dream

The cycle then repeats itself, but with each cycle you spend less time in the deeper stages three and four of sleep and more time in REM sleep. On a typical night, you’ll cycle through four or five times. Two Internal Biological Mechanisms–circadian rhythm and homeostasis–work together to regulate when you are awake and sleep.

Circadian Rhythms direct a wide variety of functions from daily fluctuations in wakefulness to body temperature, metabolism, and the release of hormones. They control your timing of sleep and cause you to be sleepy at night and your tendency to wake in the morning without an alarm. Your body’s biological clock, which is based on a roughly 24-hour day, controls most circadian rhythms. Circadian rhythms synchronize with environmental cues (light, temperature) about the actual time of day, but they continue even in the absence of cues.

Sleep-Wake Homeostasis keeps track of your need for sleep. The homeostatic sleep drive reminds the body to sleep after a certain time and regulates sleep intensity. This sleep drive gets stronger every hour you are awake and causes you to sleep longer and more deeply after a period of sleep deprivation.

Spirit of an Uninterrupted Sleep

An uninterrupted sleep is called as “quality sleep” which is essential to rejuvenate you mind and body. You must get your required amount of sleep in one continuous block. Six hours of uninterrupted sleep is more restorative than eight hours of poor, fragmented sleep. Common causes for sleep interruption are;

  • A sagging mattress can lead to uneven spinal support, which may cause pressure to build up in your back and neck as

you sleep. You will wake up with aches and pains may be due to the breakdown of comfort layers in your mattress, causing pressure points when you sink onto the firmer support core. The layers of the mattress are designed to work together to support the shape of your spine. If you are waking up stiff and sore, it may be due to an unsupportive mattress.

  • Tossing and turning on an uncomfortable mattress may result in poor sleep quality, even if you’re not consciously aware of it. When you sleep with your partner, the number of movements on bed increases.

Fall asleep Easily

Before you actually get into bed, a few simple tips can help make sure your mind and body are prepared to fall asleep easily:

  • Follow a consistent sleep schedule with the same wake-up time every day, including on weekends. This helps fine-tune and entrain your internal clock for more regular sleep.

  • Wind down for at least half an hour before bedtime. Ideal activities during this time are reading, light stretching exercises or meditation, try a warm bath before bed and any other activity that make you relax.

  • Disconnect from close-range electronic devices like laptops, phones, and tablets because they can stimulate the brain and make it harder to fall asleep.

  • Make sure you’re in comfortable clothing.

  • Avoid heavy meals, spicy foods, caffeine, and alcohol in the lead-up to bedtime.

  • Maintain a relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom

Bedroom Environment

  • A quiet environment. Quiet does not have to mean completely silent. Calming sounds or music can be beneficial. Loud, abrasive sounds or noises should be avoided. Other white noise generators such as fans or clocks near the bed can help mute sleep distractions

  • Bedroom should be set to a pleasant temperature. The cooler the better.

  • Dim the lights to help your eyes relax. Use room darkening shades or dark fabrics to reduce the amount light leaking into the room

  • Consider a calming scent, like lavender essential oils, that can generate a calming effect.

  • Finding the best Mattress for your sleep position and body type can be instrumental in a good night’s rest.

What is a Mattress?

A mattress is defined as “a fabric case filled with resilient material (such as cotton, hair, feathers, foam rubber, or an arrangement of coiled springs) used either alone as a bed or on a bedstead.

How to buy the best Mattress for you?

Buying a mattress can be exhausting. Navigating the stores and websites, debating between foam and springs, and determining the best mattress size and how much to spend can leave you feeling like you need a good nap. One thing to keep in mind: there isn't one model that will work for everyone and it's important to focus on following tips for picking out the best mattress for your needs.

  • Obtain brochures, visit websites of mattress brands to find out more about mattresses. You have to get fully involved in the purchase decision. Because, the mattress you are about to buy will last you at least ten years and that you will spend more time on it than any other piece of furniture in your home.

  • For couples, you have to get the involvement of your partner for choosing the most suitable mattress for both of you. Normally an average person tosses and turns 40 to 60 times a night. Clinical studies show that the ripple effect caused by a bed partner’s tossing and turning can result in up to 20% loss of critical deep sleep as 70% of the time a partner moves, the other follows. Therefore, it is important to try the mattress with your partner.

  • Fundamentally, you have to buy a well-built, quality mattress which provides you great support, great comfort and good value for your money. Consider your height and weight while shopping for your choice mattress. This will help you to select a mattress that will not end up too soft or too firm.

  • Buy the best you can afford and one that suit your needs best

  • And if you do suffer from any back pain, we recommend that you mention it to our sales consultants. But prior to shopping for a mattress, you may like to seek the orthopaedic’s advice.
