Does anyone have any experience with Buckwheat/Makura pillows and Shiki Futons of either buckwheat or cotton?(not the standard american futon)
Just FYI: I've just started doing step one in the book for the past 3 days, and I'm already a believer! I was lifting heavy furniture today and relieved most of my discomfort in a few hours of stretchsitting.
Back to the bedding: I've been using a buckwheat pillow for 2 years and I love it. I'm mostly a back sleeper, and I have a fairly firm mattress, but it is starting to become irreparably concave. I'm looking for a replacement. My feeling is that thousands of years of asian culture can't be completely wrong in regards to their bedding.
-Is there anything I should be concerned about when using a buckwheat pillow and/or shiki futon?
-Any recommendations on product choice or for a certain company?
Thanks in advance!
