Antti Lehtilä is a 29-year-old commercial pilot and a dressage rider. For the first time, Antti heard about Neurosonic after discussing the profession of a pilot with his friend and all things related to challenges combined with competitive sports. “Special challenges in the commercial pilot profession are irregular and constantly changing working hours and adjusting one's lifestyle accordingly,” says Antti; “Early bedtime and waking up in the middle of the night, the time difference and recovery from it, and the impact of sedentary work, especially the effects on lower back and hip flexors, bring additional challenges to the worksheet”. As a result of the conversation, a friend suggested Neurosonic as a help for the challenges Antti mentioned.
At home, Antti constantly uses Neurosonic's mobile mattress, and when he visits Oulu, he visits the Saaristonkatu Showroom. “Owning my own mattress is absolutely essential in my case because of the difficult shifts. I use all eight programs, but for slightly different situations”, says Antti. He says recovery programs are helpful after a time difference, long working days, and dressage workouts. Activation helps before night work or long shifts, as well as before dressage training or competition. Antti uses relaxation to improve the quality of sleep after the evening shift when the body is on overdrive. Relaxation also helps especially when making a change of circadian rhythm when you have to go to bed considerably early and wake up in the middle of the night.
Antti feels that Neurosonic has significantly improved his sleep quality and enabled a better night's sleep. He says the effect of the time difference has decreased significantly and the recovery from it has shortened. Neurosonic has been instrumental in returning from both the East and the West. “I believe Neurosonic has made it possible for me to both compete in dressage and fly as my profession. The help for recovery and getting enough and high-quality rest is tremendous”, says Antti at the end of his feedback.
