Sleep represents an essential recuperation process for body, mind and spirit. So much depends on sleep: health, performance level and a feeling of well being. More and more people suffer from sleeping disorders and back problems. According to the Swiss Rheumatism Association, more than 50 % of the population suffers from acute back problems and 90 % of the population has consulted a doctor at least once because of back problems. This is no mere coincidence. These problems arise from the world we live in and from causes that we are able to identify, for example the wrong bed. SAMINA combines the results of modern sleep research (according to the most recent estimates, more than 60 % of the population suffers from sleep disorders) with requirements generated by doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, therapists and natural health specialists. We put the principles of healthy sleep, taken from the science of living-space biology, into practice without compromise. The result is a complete sleeping system that in- corporates the soothing and regenerative energy of natural materials such as wood, virgin sheep’s wool, natural rubber and cotton. This is one of the important reasons why more and more people are choos- ing SAMINA as their partner for the “sleeping third” of their life. Success stories from thousands of satisﬁed SAMINA customers speak for themselves – world-wide. Only the best is good enough for healthy sleep. Harmony and healthy sleep for a nice day. 3 Samina_korr_26_8_GB 08.09.2004 10:18 Uhr Seite 4 Nature as a Source of Strength Using Nature’s Energy. SAMINA only uses materials in their natural state.

With SAMINA, you spend your nights with materials that you can trust. Treat your body to the highest levels of relaxation and cuddle up in covers as soft as sheep’s ﬂeece. Conscientious workmanship by our skilled craftsmen preserves the high-grade material energy con- tained in the natural raw materials, making the SAMINA bed your personal source of natural energy and giving you deep, restful sleep. People who prefer using nature’s powers for healthy sleep choose SAMINA. This is why doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, building engineering biologists and natural health specialists recommend SAMINA out of conviction.

The SAMINA Four Seasons duvet – pure natural materials for the best bed environment. 4 Samina_korr_26_8_GB 08.09.2004 10:18 Uhr Seite 5 Skilled Craftsmanship Made In House – Guaranteed. Great care is taken during extraction of our valuable raw materials. All materials used are subjected to stringent testing for contaminants.

In every sleeping position, the spine should lie so that it conforms to its natural S-shape. The highly-ﬂexible slat frame provides the foundation needed to meet all medical-orthopaedic requirements for anatomically correct reclining and sleeping. In combination with the point-elastic natural rubber mattress and the virgin wool pad, the spine is given the best possible support and posture in every sleeping position. We often change our body position while we are sleeping. No sleeping position is maintained for more than two hours, most for less than one. 20 to 60 changes in position are regarded as normal. SAMINA always guarantees optimal and automatic adaptation to More and more people suffer from back problems. your particular sleeping position. This is why the SAMINA sleeping system, perfectly adapted to the human body, is able to provide relaxation for the back and can prevent back problems.

Although many of the secrets of sleep have not yet been uncovered, medical experts generally agree that the quality of the internal elements of a bed has a signiﬁcant inﬂuence on the quality of sleep. SAMINA has spent years working together with scientists and experts to develop a complete sleeping system. The focus has been placed on the highly ﬂexible and freely suspended SAMINA slat frame.Next comes the point elastic SAMINA natural rubber mattress and the SAMINA virgin wool pad with cli- mate regulation. A duvet, ﬁlled with virgin wool in its natural state that adapts to the body’s posture, and a pillow from the extensive SAMINA range round off the SAMINA sleeping system. We provide you with a no-compromise implementation of existing knowledge about natural processes packaged into concrete problem solutions for your night-time pleasure. All components are perfectly suited to each other and guarantee relaxing sleep. We can cater to your personal and individual modi- ﬁcation requests and perform ﬁne adjustments at any time. SAMINA is built up in layers just like the human body. 7 Samina_korr_26_8_GB 08.09.2004 10:18 Uhr Seite 8 Relaxation for Body and Min Most sleeping support products react passively to the person sleeping on them. Depending on the material and the support elements used, the body, together with shoulders and hips, sinks in to a greater or lesser degree. The lighter body parts lie on top. The necessary pressure equalisation is often lacking, and the body adapts to the supporting elements. The result is that the spine as well as muscle tension must provide the necessary equalisation. The muscles remain tense all night. Optimal regeneration is impossible. The SAMINA Royal is completely different. Surface pressure applied by the body is taken up by the patented, double-sided, freely suspended SAMINA Royal slat frame and is distributed in proportion to body weight and length. The unique construction of the double-sided SAMINA Royal slat frame creates active counter-pressure, providing optimal support to the lower spine and also relief for the spinal discs and muscles. There is continuous equalisation of pressure between the person sleeping and the supporting elements. The muscles can completely let SAMINA Royal – gives way and supports. 8 Samina_korr_26_8_GB 08.09.2004 10:18 Uhr Seite 9 The Secret of SAMINA ind. go and relax in any sleeping position, avoiding pressure spots, hardening of the muscles and circula- tion problems. SAMINA Royal continuously provides supporting, cushioning and equalising interaction with the person sleeping, independent of body weight. The unique construction absorbs and equalises every body movement, reliably preventing incorrect behaviour during sleep. You notice it immediately – the SAMINA Royal slat frame “thinks” and reacts along with your body. This signiﬁcantly enhances the quality of sleep and guarantees optimal regeneration. As soon as you lie down to test the SAMINA Royal, you sense its unique properties.

When this support is provided, our body assumes a starts like this. ideal, natural position. 9 Samina_korr_26_8_GB 08.09.2004 10:18 Uhr Seite 10 Healthy Bed Environment Balanced Environment… …Point Elasticity. The SAMINA Royal virgin wool pad forms the top layer of the three-part SAMINA Royal. It is ﬁlled with 100 % biologically active virgin wool of best Merino quality, providing an ideal dry-warm bed environment.

This is an aspect that makes us particularly proud, and you can be proud as well. The wool ﬁllings in SAMINA duvets and pillows contain only 100 % biologically active virgin wool of high-grade Merino quality taken from free-range sheep. Virgin sheep wool is one of the best climatic ﬁbres in existence. It is comfortably warm in the winter and pleasantly cool in the summer. Its extraordinary ability to store moisture equal to about 30 % of its own weight and rapidly release it to air in the room makes virgin sheep’s wool an ideal ﬁlling material. The SAMINA Four Seasons duvet has a pure untreated cotton covering as well as the quality beneﬁts of whole yarn. Made using a labour-intensive cross-stitch process, it is cuddly, ﬂuid and simply marvellous. It consists of a light summer duvet and a warm autumn duvet.

Top athletes and successful people swear by the healthy sleep they get from SAMINA. The relation- ship between healthy, relaxing sleep and physical and mental performance levels has been known for a long time. The performance demands placed on modern man continue to increase. New techno- logies lead to very rapid change. The good news is that from the beginning, man has been exposed to conditions that have con- tinually changed at an increasing rate. He has met this challenge and has grown with it. He will continue to do so in the future. The important thing is to maintain the correct relationship between tension and relaxation. Take short breaks during the day. They give you renewed strength. Use your holidays and free days to “turn off”. Also, create the best conditions for sleeping. This lets you make the best use of the relaxation and regeneration phase during the night. High demands on performance during the day require healthy, regenerative sleep. 13 Samina_korr_26_8_GB 08.09.2004 10:20 Uhr Seite 14 Internal Elements Increased Harmony and Contentment. Every person is born to recognise and fulﬁl his or her personal calling in life. Health, harmony, con- tentment, success and happiness do not always follow as a matter of course. There are many ways of ﬁnding one’s own “middle path” and activating vital energy. The energy- consuming aspects of our high-performance society (the drive towards faster, higher and more powerful achievement) are destabilising more and more people. This makes it important for you and your family to recognise that healthy sleep is a source of strength in your life. If you want to remain healthy, you must ﬁrst of all enjoy healthy sleep. Good, relaxing sleep has a direct inﬂuence on our ability to perform and maintain our equilibrium as well as on our immune system. The entire SAMINA sleep philosophy can help you achieve physical and spiritual equilibrium through healthy, bio-regenerative sleep – for a beautiful morning, a successful day, and for a good life. Health is the sum of positive influences on body, soul and spirit. 14 Samina_korr_26_8_GB 08.09.2004 10:21 Uhr Seite 15 Experience and Advice You Need Healthy Sur- roundings to Sleep Well.
