Dear Yi Ling,
Thank you for your email. I will be happy to suggest an appropriate neck pillow for you. Thank you for giving me information about yourself and also what type of pain you are having.
I would recommend the arc4life cervical linear traction neck pillow for you. Size Medium 24”x17”or Small 20”x15”, Regular support.
If have a preference for a smaller pillow, get the small size in the arc4life traction pillow family. I think based on your height and weight the medium will be better for you.
Yi Ling, you also mentioned 2 other pillows that you were thinking of. It can be confusing because each family of neck-pillows has various sizes and various levels of support.
The Linear Gravity neck Pillow - This pillow is great because it can provide two levels of support with two neck rolls. Because you are also exhibiting pain and numbness, you need a gentle stretch in the cervical spine as well. The Arc4life traction pillow provides that.
The Cervical Traction Neck Pillow - best recommendation for you
The TriCore Cervical Support Neck Pillow - too thick and too firm for you especially with all the pain you are experiencing. I want you to have a neck pillow that you can start using right away. With the arc4life traction neck pillow there is a softer side and a firmer side. If you are having a lot of neck pain or achiness, start by using the softer side which is the support side of the pillow.
Yes, Arc4life ships to Singapore. If you are interested, please fill out the international shipping form. Shipping is usually via Global Priority Mail through the United States Postal Service. Please email us back if you have any further questions about pillows.
