Falling sick because of poor sleep? Add this to your bedtime routine for deep recuperative slumber
MegRhythm Good-Night Steam Patch aims to activate your relaxation point at the base of your neck to lull you into dreamland. Brought to you by MegRhythm.
Blue light. Pressing deadlines. The constant buzz of a phone that doesn’t want to stay off. In a 2018 survey conducted by market research firm YouGov, only 48 per cent of the Singaporeans surveyed had the recommended amount of rest, and three quarters woke up at least once in their sleep.
Whatever the reason for poor sleep, the effects are undeniably telling. As one of the pillars of health, sleep deprivation can lead to depression, high blood pressure and a compromised immunity, making one more susceptible to falling sick.
EASING INTO DEEP RELAXATION
Your body isn’t a machine, and it doesn’t have an ‘off’ switch to flick at your will. Remember how important it is to warm up before going full swing into a sporting activity? The same applies to sleep.
The UK Mental Health Foundation stresses the importance of relaxing before sleep. Adding a pre-sleep routine not only helps to programme the body chemically, but may also aid in deep relaxation physically.
WARMING UP TO RESTFUL SLEEP
The MegRhythm range of wellness products is targeted at alleviating the stress of busy urbanites. For restful sleep, the MegRhythm Good-Night Steam Patch is a handy tool to add to your bedtime routine.
Designed and developed with state-of-the-art technology in Japan, this self-warming steam patch releases a soothing and comfortable 40-degrees-celsius steam heat for about 30 minutes to help you relax.
Activate the heat mechanism by opening the pouch and place the slim and flexible patch – available in lavender-scented and unscented options – at the base of your neck. As this area is especially sensitive to heat, it is a prime spot to fully absorb the therapeutic steam and warmth for physical muscle relaxation.
The routine also gives you time to pause and calm an overactive mind. Read a book. Indulge in a pampering skincare ritual. Or watch your favourite programme on TV. Let the heat patch do its magic while you blissfully unwind.
REJUVENATE WITH THE WORLD

As the world struggles with global health concerns, our health and immunity have never been more important. Introduce MegRhythm Good-Night Steam Patch to your bedtime ritual and achieve the deep sleep you so crave and deserve.
