Yoga Your Way Out of Pain

Many people who work in offices sit at desks for 8 hours! This can cause back pain. The yoga instructor featured in the video below is named Jake and he says, “Back pain is an epidemic in America. And the pain is accentuated by our desk culture and the use of mobile devices.” (Yoga With Jake: 10-Minute Yoga Routine to Ease Back Pain) So if Jake was describing you, or if you are looking for a good stretch take a look at the video below.

Happy 4th of July!

  No matter how you are celebrating the 4th of July, we hope you have a great day!

We will be enjoying the World’s Largest Salmon BBQ up here in Fort Bragg again. “Join the fun at this annual event, sponsored by the Salmon Restoration Association to raise money to take positive action to restore salmon to our rivers and streams. Great food, live music and a love of the outdoors are all part of the atmosphere at the barbeque.”(Celebrate July 4th in Mendocino) Have a great weekend!

The Importance of a Solid Foundation

A sagging mattress can be frustrating and painful. One of the first thing you should check is your box spring. Having a quality box spring under 7 years old is critical. If you are feeling like your mattress is sagging, take it off the box spring and put it to the side. You will then be able to take a look at the box spring and see if it is warped and causing the mattress to sag.

Make sure your box spring or foundation is good quality. Our Pine Foundation was engineered to be put together with 8 wing-nuts, this strong foundation is constructed of solid wood sides and 3-1/2″ pine slats to provide a firm surface with air circulation for your mattress. True level surface for lasting performance and support.

Another great option is the European Slat Foundation. This is the global standard for mattress support. Contouring bent beech slats provide both give and rotation, constantly responding to the shifting planes of your body, keeping your spine straight. The choice of 200 million people worldwide.

Don’t spend another night tossing and turning because of your foundation. Take the time to investigate what is going wrong.

S-Cape to a Better Night

“We’ve had our beds for almost 3 years, and there are still a couple of times a week that we’re sitting up in bed, drinking our morning coffee, ‘taking our massage’ and one of us will say. “Boy am I glad we got these beds!”. They truly are SO comfortable.” -Susan K

Susan is referring to her FloBed and the adjustable base she purchased for her mattress. One our new favorite adjustable bases is the S-Cape.

This past weekend Dave Turner sent his FloBeds team on a special trip to thank them for all of their hard work. Knowing how much his team loves baseball, Dave gave the guys tickets to a Giants game! They made the long drive down to San Francisco to catch a fun game at AT&T Park. Great seats, great team and a great day to be a FloBeds employee.

The FloBeds Family

FloBeds (1)

We are a family owned and operated business, which makes it easy for us to offer our customers the individual attention they deserve.

Dave Turner entered the sleep business in 1971. His children have always joked that they have been working for their father since they were able to put stamps on envelopes. Today the FloBeds shop is run by Dave Turner, his wife Anne, and oldest son Dewey. When you call to purchase your FloBed you will most likely be greeted by Dewey or his coworker Garrett.

Our team gets excited every time a new customer calls to learn about our FloBeds. We also love hearing from our existing customers, whether it’s to help adjust layers or to sell them another bed. Since we are a family owned business we are able to work quickly and efficiently as a team to keep our customers happy. The best part about buying a FloBed is you have a support system and a family that will be there for you over the next 20 years.

Just What the Doctor Ordered

Here is a little thank you note we got from one of our customers Dr. Lago-

“As an orthopedic surgeon, I have seen many patients who have been adversely affected by an uncomfortable bed. The obliteration of pressure points has been a major result. Motion on either side of the bed goes un-noticed with FloBed. The old days when I awoke with a low backache are gone.”
