It’s all about Pressure.

How is Your Body Pressure?

“Body Pressure” is required to keep hormonal, neuromuscular, and cardiovascular systems balanced and happy.

Usually, people who have a job sitting from 9am-5pm looking at a screen has less pressure in their body than someone who works construction. You are more likely to “fall” asleep when your body has been moving all day developing that inside body pressure up to it’s balanced preference in order to fall asleep. There’s a reason why children fall asleep on the way home from playing outside all day. Their bodies have the amount of pressure to happily fall asleep in any position with out anyone telling them to do it!

This provides the perfect balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide during the day. Right before falling asleep your body develops more ozone or oxygen to heal. This happens because we are not using energy to move around.
