Designed for home use as a natural traction device
Originally designed for home use as a natural traction device, the Soothe-A-Ciser helps to alleviate tension headaches and neck pain by gently stretching the upper chest and anterior neck muscles. Massage therapists love the contoured design that elevates the face, shoulders and neck for better access, while providing comfortable support for clients when placing neck in mild traction. The Soothe-A-Ciser can also be used as a support cushion for our Cervical Traction System. (Not intended for sleeping.)

This product does exactly what the product description states it "restores the natural curve of the neck" and uses "the weight of your head to gently stretch your upper chest and anterior neck muscles". No where does it say that this product will distract the cervical spine, in other words it does not provide cervical traction. Furthermore, expecting a passive device to generate any appreciable traction force on the cervical spine when you are lying in a horizontal position, defies the laws of physics not to mention simple common sense.
The average human head weighs between 10 - 12 lbs. You will not get distraction between the cervical vertebrae (i.e. traction) until you overcome the weight of the head. Therefore the distraction force needs to be over 10 - 12 lbs before any cervical traction will occur. The only way you can generate that amount of distraction force is with either a mechanical (powered) traction device, or an over the door pulley system with a gravity...
This pillow is the right shape, but the material is WAY too soft... it compresses way down and doesn't therefore hold the neck up much at all. This should be made out of denser foam or have some sort of solid core with foam padding. It is not worth the money - just a lump of soft foam. You can achieve better neck therapy with a rolled up towel.
I use this before bed and often in the middle of the day as well. It is extremely helpful in reducing neck and shoulder pain. It can also interrupt a headache cycle as well. Highly recommend it.
