Many medical professionals worldwide agree

that deep pressure stimulation helps relax and soothe the human body. Weighted blankets use this simulation of
pressure to offer relief and therapeutic support.

 

What is a Weighted Blanket?

A weighted blanket is, in
essence, a blanket with extra weight in it.
Weighted blankets
provide deep touch pressure or DTP.
DTP is about gently applying pressure to the
body to increase the release of serotonin, a chemical in the body that promotes
relaxation.

 

Benefits of a weighted Blanket:

Weighted therapy can help increase the levels of
Serotonin and Melatonin overnight.

Researchers also found that deep pressure
significantly decreases cortisol levels. After applying deep pressure, cortisol
levels dropped by 31%.

 

Fights Insomnia
Heavy blankets are
mostly used for those with autism or sensory processing disorder, but more and
more often they are being used for those with sleeping disorders, like insomnia
or restless leg syndrome, as well as people who simply would like to improve
their sleep overall.

The soothing effect of a weighted blanket can create a more
comfortable environment for falling asleep by imitating the feeling of being
swaddled tightly in bed. This close physical connection provides a sense of
warmth and safety, making it easier for the body to relax.

 

Reduces Anxiety
A weighted blanket is a
safe way to lower your stress level and help you reach a relaxed state.
The “relaxed state” results from serotonin
production, which is necessary to release melatonin – the sleep hormone, which
helps determine when we go to sleep and wake up based on our circadian rhythm. This
means it’ll be faster to fall asleep, reduce anxiety, go into a deeper sleep,
and move less throughout the night.

 

Triggers Release of Feel-Good Hormones
Deep pressure touch triggers the release of
neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, which are the two major
feel-good hormones for your brain. Both these beneficial compounds can combat
stress, depression, and anxiety, giving you an emotional pick-me-up after a
quick snuggle session.

 

Mimics a Hug
Both hugs and heavy blankets
trigger the release of oxytocin, a hormone that slows down your heart rate,
reduces blood pressure, and promotes feelings of relaxation.

 

Material:
100% cotton with glass beads

 

Size options:

  • 122 x 183 cm (full-size bed)
  • 7kg

 

The weight of the blanket you order should be
7%-13% of your weight

 

Note:
A weighted blanket would
smaller than the same size ordinary blanket because
it is supposed to cover your body, not the entire bed.

For the first few nights, you may feel it is too
heavy or too light weight. Getting used to a weighted
blanket takes
about 2-7 days.
