    Does tatami mats in Japan count?
    Not the best nights sleep I’ve ever had, but it’s hard to get a good night’s sleep when travelling anyway.

      Sleeping “Japan Style” took me 2 weeks to get used to. I was desperate for some relief from my back discomfort.
      I’ve stuck with it for three weeks. There was one night I almost crept back to my bed…but did not. But I must admit my back and hips are greatly improved and the nagging back pain and stiffness in hips is ….95% gone…in just 3 weeks! I cannot believe it myself!
      One’s body is aligned….and that is a huge difference to the sleeping positions I had on a sagging bed. The Japanese have been sleeping on the ‘floor’ for centuries!

    So you’re sleeping on the floor without a mattress Nancy? That’s brave! I’m glad it seems to be working for you.

      I never ( back and hips) felt better. It took 4 weeks to finally find my sleeping pattern and the positions that work well in the floor. It is strange….but I had to learn how to sleep!
