Eco-friendly support, health-friendly sleep

February 10, 2010
Feb. 10, 2010 – Pillo1 is the first eco-luxe pillow that blends the blissful comfort of luxury bedding and a highly sophisticated therapeutic design that perfectly aligns the spine to promote healing and restorative deep sleep.

Pillo1 is made of six different pieces of eco-friendly foam including soy-based bio-foam (which provides additional firmness for the neck on one side of the feather-like center head cradle) and Talalay latex, a naturally derived and renewable resource from the milk of the rubber tree that is produced using a solvent-free process. Talalay is naturally hypoallergenic, dust-mite resistant with anti-microbial properties.  The side panels of Pillo1 contain Talalay latex, while the center is a Talalay latex blend with memory properties, and the bio-foam core on one side of the neck roll is a soy based foam.  Each piece of the pillow provides different degrees of support and softness and educates the body to stay in alignment while sleeping. 

Traditional pillows push the head up above the body and stretch the neck all night – this is an unnatural position.  Humans are designed to sleep so the body can restore its settings for the next period of daytime activity.  When the body is not at rest, or is in an unnatural position, the muscles and connective tissue around the spine react by pulling, compensating and, sometimes, tearing. When this happens night after night, over time, pain can result.  

When the neck is supported underneath, as it is with Pillo1, blood flow, nerve connectivity and rejuvenation of the muscles and connective tissue can occur naturally during sleep.  With Pillo1’s design and engineering in six different pieces of soft soy foam and eco friendly Talalay latex, the product gently promotes the healthy, lordotic curve of the neck and encourages the body to sleep more on the back, and also on either side, in neutral spinal alignment.


Dr. Raymond Hall, DC, developer of Pillo1

The product is an outgrowth of Dr. Raymond Hall’s vision and desire to extend his healing processes beyond his offices to the millions of North Americans who suffer from neck and back pain and to whom he cannot personally administer treatment.

Pillo1 is manufactured by Malibu, California-based Hall Innovations, LLC.  It is currently available at and will soon be available through spas, chiropractors’ offices and luxury bedding outlets.
