SleepMaker has a longstanding partnership with the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (National) Limited (CAA) and have been working together for over 25 years. Together we have produced the only bedding range designed with, tested and approved by the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia.
The Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (National) Limited (CAA) is the peak body representing chiropractors. An underlying principle of chiropractic is “healthy spine, healthier life”. By offering expert, drug-free spinal health care and lifestyle advice, chiropractors help Australians lead and maintain healthy lives. The CAA is the largest chiropractic health body in Australia, and coordinates its efforts with its 8 autonomous CAA state & territory organisations.
“There is a real relationship between your spine and your health,” says a representative of the CAA. “That’s why it is important to sleep on a range of bedding designed for correct postural alignment and relaxation of the spinal muscles. A bed that is too firm will elevate the hips & shoulders, causing the spine to sag in the lower back region. Similarly, a bed that is too soft will cause the spine to sag at the hips, both resulting in localised pressure on the spine that can lead to fragmented sleep and longer-term health problems. Because everybody is different, it’s important to choose a bed with the right support and comfort for you.”
CAA endorsed SleepMaker Miracoil products are only available range at Sleepy’s.

Salvaging metal, foam and timber from mattresses diverts thousands of tonnes of waste from landfill annually. Every 10 tonnes of materials is equivalent to:
Soft Landing works with councils across each state to overcome illegal dumping, as well as servicing residents, retailers and manufacturing partners.
