TheraLuxe Heavy Duty Balsam Mattress


The TheraLuxe Heavy Duty Balsam Mattress is just built differently.


Don’t Believe Us? Take The HD Durability Challenge. We Dare You To Compare.

In the same manner boys and girls differ biologically, things that look similar on the surface like mattresses, in fact, can be built very differently.


Why is comparing necessary?

Arming yourself with as much information puts you in the drivers seat and in the best position to get the most mattress for your money.


Compare The Parts. Compare apples to apples. Comparing white rectangles like mattresses can be confusing and this is made worse by manufacturers with a plan. The bedding industry suffers from major competitive shortcomings brought on by private equity firms. These investment management companies gobbled up what used to be 5 of the biggest independent mattress competitors.


Between them, they made up over 50 percent of total mattress sales. These 5 brand names now reside under 2 rooftops. Many believe this is a monopoly. Is the lack of competition good for shoppers and the prices they will pay for a mattress? Do manufacturers make it hard to compare one model to another? Do these mattress builders intentionally make certain that a given product can become useless within a planned time period to bolster demand? Are greater sums of money to be made by making a mattress and boxspring disposable?


Why can’t everything we buy be like a cast iron skillet? Fight the mattress industry strategy of planned obsolescence by choosing long-lasting household goods that last more than 6 years.


Therapedic set out to “over-engineer” this mattress and optional foundation to be more durable and more supportive for everybody. Are you fed up with the endless cycle of replacing household goods that don’t last? Regardless of your size. Plus size or petite, Therapedic Heavy Duty Mattresses are built to last and stand the test of time. Our warranty ensures this promise to you. Every Therapedic HD mattress starts with one goal in mind, standing the test of time.


How Does The Balsam HD Mattress Feel?


TheraLuxe HD utilizes our firmest coil support system. Each coil independently works to support all body shapes, sizes, and even individuals up to 350 pounds. The additional cushioning layers enhance the support of each coil by relieving unnecessary pressure. This is the pressure that is associated with painful pressure points and tossing & turning that wakes us up when we get uncomfortable. The combination of support and pressure relief put the firmness rating on the Balsam Plush Mattress at a level 8 firmness.



Featured Mattress Firmness: TheraLuxe Heavy Duty Balsam Mattress


Firmness Rating: 8

This mattress delivers extra firm support with a bit of cushioned top for for medium feel, not to firm and not too soft.


Understanding Mattress Firmness:
A Quick Guide Of Our Firmness Rating Overview (1-10 Scale):


Firmness For Water Mattresses:

1: Ultra-Soft, our softest option. Imagine lying on a gently bobbing boat; this is our softest, cloud-like water mattress.
4: Firm, the firmest among water mattresses. This is where water meets firmness – still with that gentle water feel, but with maximum support.


Firmness For Coil Spring Mattresses:

5: Firm, marking the entry point into our coil spring range. It’s firmer than our firmest water mattress but maintains a gentle feel, providing a nice balance for those transitioning from water to coil spring mattresses.
10: Ultra Firm, the hardest mattress we offer. The epitome of firmness; think of lying on a firm, supportive surface that holds you perfectly without any sink.

We believe that a mattress should be looked at as a long-term investment in yourself. This is an 8-hour-a-day, 365 days a year, year after year investment. It is nearly impossible to name another item you will buy, that will have a greater impact on your health and wellbeing for such a long period of time.

The TheraLuxe Heavy Duty Balsam Mattress is not built like other mattresses. It is the cast iron skillet of the mattress industry. We have built our business and our reputation on building better products and not just settling for the cheapest or whatever is the current norm.
