Experience Hippocrates Healing by Day &
Essentia Recovery by Night!
The lessons you learn here are Hippocrates don’t stop when you leave campus, and your path to achieving true whole-body recovery shouldn’t stop either. This is why we are proud to introduce you to Essentia, the world’s only natural memory foam mattress, and only Hippocrates approved mattress.
Clean. Organic. Non-Toxic.
Handcrafted in Essentia’s GOLS and GOTS certified organic factory, all Essentia products are made using only the highest quality natural and organic ingredients, including hevea milk, organic essential oils, natural plant extracts, and water.
By using these clean ingredients, Essentia mattresses help create a clean sleep environment, as the mattress will not expose you to the toxins, chemical flame retardants and polyurethane foams found in traditional mattresses.
Essentia then takes this innovation a step further, elevating the standards of an organic mattress by ensuring that the body is supported properly for the body to enter and stay in crucial REM and nREM stages of sleep, which is when the body truly kicks into recovery and rejuvenation mode.
Essentia achieves this thanks to its patented technology which allows Essentia to be the only manufacturer able to create a mattress that addresses the 6 key elements needed for the body to enter recovery mode:
6 Key Elements
- Optimized Sleep: Exclusive to Essentia’s WholeBody Recovery collection of mattresses, patented molding technology utilized to these mattresses results in a sleep surface that reacts quickly to your natural movements during sleep which helps to reduce sleep interruptions, allowing you to get into the critical REM and Slow Wave Sleep stages. Staying in these critical sleep stages is when the body truly goes into recovery mode, keeping your memory sharp.
- Accelerated Recovery: Essentia's fast-response patented natural memory foam technology, provides ultimate pressure relief, increased blood circulation and eliminates numbness and soreness at night for accelerated recovery. This technology is found exclusively in Essentia's Wholebody Recovery collection of mattresses.
- Proper Posture: Essentia mattresses ensure the back is properly supported by filling in the spaces between your body and the surface of the mattress for a more comfortable sleep. Proper spinal alignment is ensured by the natural hevea latex support core.
- Sleeps Cool: Essentia mattresses naturally pull heat away from your body and out through the mattress, allowing you to sleep on average up to 7 degrees* cooler than your body temperature over an 8-hour sleep cycle. This promotes 'micro-hibernation' allowing you to experience deep REM sleep cycles. Essentia Performance collection mattresses sleep up to 3 degrees cooler, and Essentia WholeBody Recovery mattresses sleep up to 7 degrees cooler.
- Organically Clean: Made using only the highest quality natural and organic components, Essentia mattresses reduce VOC exposure so your body can spend less time fighting outside elements and more time healing. All Essentia products are manufactured in Essentia’s GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic factory, ensuring that there are no chemical flame retardants, poly foams or toxic chemicals traditionally found in synthetic mattresses.
- Allergy-Friendly: Essentia mattresses are impervious to dust mites and do not contain latex proteins that may trigger allergies as reported by Dr. Robert G. Hamilton of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Essentia also does not use any wool or fiber batting that may act as a nesting ground for dust mites. You can rest easy knowing you won’t be exposed to potential allergens on an Essentia mattress.
"There is no better bed I've slept on that has ever invited me, made me comfortable and slept so deeply as Essentia."
"Hi, I bought this roughly 4 years ago, and I am NOT the type of person to necessarily take the time to write reviews. I was turned onto this brand by a boss who had children with chronic Migraines, he himself had back issues and they decided to move into Organic Memory Foam mattress, meaning out with those old Tempur branded mattresses and into the new Sustainable future. The headaches went away for his children and his back never felt better. Despite the price tag, I decided to DIVE IN, finance the bed and I have never looked back. I myself have a herniated C5/6, and the only part that sucks now is, "when I'm away and not on my Dormeuse — I can feel it". What a difference in your body, life, and the world when you don't ache and you sleep well, and you know you aren't huffing toxic chemicals whilst sleeping. Do yourself a favor and invest in YOU!"
"As we learned from HHI, a healthy lifestyle is far more than just food. We have chemical nightmares in every part of the environment we are living in. We also learned that good quality sleep is one of the most essential factors for a healthy lifestyle, but the majority of us have been sleeping on mattresses made from chemically derived foam layered together with glue. I have chosen the Essentia natural memory foam mattress and I am so pleased with it, not only because it is made from all natural materials, but also it is luxuriously comfortable and long lasting. It supports my body so well that my sleepless nights, tossing and turning, and exhausted mornings are alleviated. I feel well rested. It is truly the best mattress I’ve slept on knowing that I can trust the quality and have a good night's rest without my health being compromised. "
You can now experience Essentia mattresses in our mini showroom at the Hippocrates store on campus.
