About PILLO1, Dr. Hall & The Story

About PILLO1

Spine specialist, author, lecturer, wellness chiropractor and sleep science expert, Dr. Raymond Hall has created a dream solution with PILLO1.  Not only is Dr. Hall’s PILLO1 the world’s first pillow to offer a neck pain relief 30 day money back guarantee, but through an INDEPENDENT SLEEP STUDY (using the Original design) PILLO1 has been shown to help people FALL ASLEEP FASTER and INCREASE REM SLEEP by and average of 17.9% and 21.3% respectively.  Using his two ingenious patented designs, the Original dual position and now the new PILLO1 Side Sleeper, both of Dr. Hall’s pillows attempt to address many common issues of poor sleep and health.  There have been many customer reviews that suggest PILLO1 can improve issues of neck pain and stiffness, snoring, headaches, alignment troubles, and insomnia.

The Story Behind the Creation: As a spine specialist in Los Angeles, Dr Hall listened to his patients, understanding that about 4 out of 5 people coming into his office with neck pain awoke with pain or developed the pain at some time during the night.  In his quest to find a solution, Dr. Hall attempted to find a pillow on the market to help his patients but found every other pillow available had poor designs and were generally of poor quality, contributing to and sometimes even causing conditions such as chronic headaches, neck and back pain, as well as stiffness.  His vision of designing the Original PILLO1 was to create ONE pillow that focused on three elements not collectively present in other pillows: support, comfort, and most importantly, virtual adaptation to all sleeping positions.  Incorporating his decades of experience working with spine and stress injuries, Dr Hall began crafting prototypes for what he hoped would soon become the most versatile and most functional pillow on the market.  In 2004, Dr. Hall’s intelligent design, the PILLO1 Original (for back and side sleeping) was patented and tested.  Now, after years of research and development, Dr. Hall’s PILLO1 lives up to his initial goals of comfort, support, versatility.  Dr. Hall’s PILLO1 has redefined the pillow, setting the highest standard in the world for a pillow to restore health and wellness.

Dr Hall subsequently designed and patented the PILLO1 Side Sleeper for the person who side sleeps only. This has also been an extremely great success as it uses the same concepts of the Original design of shoulder cut outs, arm vent/pressure relief channels but doesn't have the center cradle for back sleeping. The touted Side Sleeper also comes in the choice of small, medium and large to support ones head and neck in the optimal position while on their side.

Choose Your Preferred Type of Foam: LATEX or the GEL INFUSED MEMORY FOAM!

Here's the Difference:

The PILLO1 Original LATEX and the PILLO1 Side Sleeper LATEX are entirely made with Talalay Latex, the absolute best "latex" foam Dr. Hall could find throughout the world. This pillow is primarily for SUPPORT of the spine with some very good comfort as well.  Talalay latex is made from the sap from the rubber (Hevea Brasiliensis) trees. These trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help reduce green-house emissions. Our Talalay latex foam features bio-degradable ingredients that come from renewable sources and materials: natural latex, air, and water. No solvents or toxic chemicals are used in PILLO1's Talalay foam. The Talalay is hypo-allergenic, dust-mite, mold and bacteria resistant, 33% more pressure relieving, 7x more breathable, and 20x more durable than typical memory foam. PILLO1's Talalay Latex foam has received OEKO-TEX  and CertiPUR-US certifications demonstrating the foam is FREE of harmful chemicals substances.

PILLO1 Original SELECT and the PILLO1 Side Sleeper SELECT are both made with our Gel Infused Visco Elastic Memory Foam.  This incredible foam is primarily engineered for COMFORT and PRESSURE RELIEF with a strong hint of support and breathability. It is a new revolutionary luxuriously comfortable foam with a remarkably low introductory price. It is more breathable and thus cooler than the old classic memory foam.  Dr. Hall has researched the foam industry and selected this advanced Gel Visco Memory foam formulation for the ultimate comfort, but also wanted to utilize the advanced technology available to infuse the memory foam with the small elastic gel particles to add the proper amount of the needed support for the neck and head. It combines the ultimate comfort of memory foam with a new elastic gel giving you the ultimate in pressure relieving comfort. And in case you were wondering, the Gel Infused Memory foam is CertiPUR-US 100 Certified, meaning that is FREE from ozone depleters, FREE of "tris" flame retardants, and FREE of lead mercury and other heavy metals, formaldehyde, phthalates and has a low VOC emission of less than .5 %.  The SELECT is available in both the Original and Side Sleeper patented designs. The SELECT is the perfect choice of health, comfort, and affordability.

How To Use

  • PILLO1 How To Use


    Feel weightless, with your head gently cradled at the center of PILLO1. Not only will PILLO1 comfortably maintain your spine’s ideal alignment, but its ultra soft side panels will also provide natural sound reduction.

  • PILLO1 How To Use


    The side panels of PILLO1 are made from the softest Talalay latex available yet firm enough go give the proper support. The key is that when you sleep on your side, your face/head and neck are supported with the perfect height (thus while we offer in S, M and L). When the side of your head rests properly on the side panels (not in the center cradle), your neck should be in a "neutral" position. Whether sleeping on your right or left, the side panels provide plush comfort and gentle support to keep your head and neck in perfect alignment, thus reducing lateral compressional stress to your spine.

  • PILLO1 How To Use


    With intelligently beveled side panels and precision shoulder cut-outs, stomach sleepers reduce shoulder pressure whether in a side-lying or back-lying position. We recommend stomach sleeper to generally size down (ex. go from medium to small) for optimal alignment.

Intelligent Innovation

In an independent study, individuals sleeping on Dr. Hall’s PILLO1® Original for back and side sleeping, people fell asleep faster, slept more deeply, and entered restorative REM sleep sooner and longer than individuals using standard store-bought pillows.  In addition, Dr. Hall’s innovative design addresses issues of snoring, while also exhibiting the unique ability to reduce unnecessary spinal stress and optimize alignment. 

Dr. Hall’s PILLO1® features precisely engineered contours, convenient shoulder cut-outs, and beveled side panels to help individuals sleep more soundly and arise healthier. Hand-crafted in America using three densities of naturally-derived Talalay latex foam or the new Gel Infused Memory Foam, Dr. Hall’s PILLO1® design offers two primary sleep surfaces in the Original Design, each with its own beneficial qualities.


Moreover, in the Original -Latex PILLO1, Dr. Hall’s two integrated variable density neck supports options (in Medium an Large only) allows you to customize the level of firmness for your neck.  On one side, the rounded cylindrical neck support is supported by a "FIRM" Talalay designed to give a person an option of firmer support in attempt to help restore the optimal cervical curve and/or to give a person added pressure for some trigger point relief of the muscles.  Then, if the user prefers a gentle support, by rotating the PILLO1 180 degree, you will find a softer (SOFT) option for the user who prefers  the more simple, plush comfort still yet still maintaining the  patented cervical curve design.

PILLO1 Design

Dr. Hall began his quest with a vision to create the perfect pillow in the year 2000. Despite exhaustive searching, he could not find a suitable pillow on the market to help his patients who were having headaches, neck pain, and generally not sleeping well. He saw a need, and developed a pillow that has evolved into a new concept of pillow design.

Dr. Hall's unique design, crafted in his home workshop and patented in 2004, included precisely engineered contours, shoulder cut-outs and angulated side panels. From his in-depth knowledge of the spine, age related degeneration and repetitive stress injuries; he purposefully developed a pillow that would provide the proper support, comfort, and adaptability to all sleeping positions; unlike any other pillow. PILLO1 also has the inherent ability to naturally educate the entire human body to position itself correctly on the bed, thereby reducing unnecessary spinal stress, optimizing alignment, and improving one's night sleep.
