Our Mission is to help people live healthier lives by sleeping in alignment.
Owners, Jim and Judy Blondin
Judy worked for a chiropractor and with her knowledge of the spine designed the Align-Right Pillow to help her debilitating morning headaches. The premise was to design a pillow that was comfortable, supportive and fitting the neck curve thereby giving the cervical (neck) vertebrae normal alignment.
Judy knew with spinal alignment vertebrae spaces opened, nerves were not compressed, pain would decrease. It took two years for her to find the special durable Hollofil filling to give the proper support, yet be comfortable. The filling had a special benefit, it could be machine washed and dried; a big health benefit as regular pillows carry bacteria causing health problems and carry dust mites.
They started selling at small Saturday markets in 1992. They realized the pillows needed to be sized as people had different body structures and neck or shoulder widths. Five sizes were developed to fit and support everyone in all sleep positions and on all types of mattresses.
Testimonials of help received with pain, such as migraines, headaches, arm/hand numbness, snoring and a better quality sleep. By 1995 they knew they had a good product to develop into a business and incorporated.
Test results at CMCC Toronto, 1996

We spent years finding the “Sleep Triangle”, measuring it, and developing charts, so you can select your size sleeping pillow. A sized head support allows you to reach the deep sleep necessary for your health. Science proved Sleep is where our bodies receive healing nightly.
After years of research, we found in chiropractic studies the science proving the “Sleep Triangle”. Select your size today; Sleep right tomorrow.
The Align-Right Cervical Therapeutic Sleeping Pillow may be covered under some insurance with a medical doctor’s prescription.
Results: ARPC is an effective therapy for chronic neck pain subjects.
Conclusion: The results suggest that the ARPC has clinically important beneficial effects on neck pain severity of most chronic neck-pain suffers.
Through the following years, they marketed the pillow, through chiropractors, Massage Therapists, internet, home trade shows. They did TV Shopping Channels in Toronto, England, and Germany with great success. This was done before finding how to measure people and charts for easy selection.
The pillow kept evolving. Jim found a way to size people using the space from the tip of the ear to the outside of the shoulder bone, to the side of the neck. Jim designed a special triangle ruler and tested it through their Chiropractor client base. After small modifications designed an easy to read cross-reference chart.
The chart had to take into account; body structures, and predominant sleep positions.
Since proper sizing is very important to everyone sleep, we give a 60-day return.
As good deep sleep is important to your health, as researchers have proved, we want everyone to be healthy and live long.
