The arched pillow assembly allows a user to comfortably sleep with an arm underneath his or her head and a pillow without restricting the circulation of blood through the arm. The arched pillow assembly includes a pillowcase that holds a conventional pillow and has two spaced apart pockets attached to the bottom of the pillowcase for snugly receiving and holding a rigid arch support. Once placed on a resting surface, the arch support has a radius of curvature sufficient to form a channel thereunder for accommodating the passage of an extended arm. The arch is strong enough to support the head of the user and the pillow in an elevated position above the extended arm and the resting surface, thereby preventing the weight of the head and pillow from restricting proper circulation of blood through the extended arm.
