*For years, occupational therapists have been using weighted blankets as a calming therapeutic tool for children with sensory processing disorders. With anxiety affecting over 40 million adults in the US alone, it's no wonder that weighted blankets have gone mainstream.
*There are many research-backed benefits of weighted blankets, including improved sleep, greater focus in the classroom, reduction of self-stimulatory behaviors, and easing of anxiety. As weighted blankets become more popular, more and more people are using them simply as a way to wind down from typical day-to-day stress and to help improve sleep.
*Similar to a hug from a loved one, our weighted blanket calms the mind and body, while promoting a more restful sleep. These combined benefits help combat anxiety, stress, and insomnia symptoms.
*Designed to weigh 10-12 % of your body weight, the compression blanket evenly distributes weight to your body. This form of Deep Pressure Therapy decreases the stress hormone cortisol and increases the "feel good" hormone, serotonin. This results in a slower heart rate, lower blood pressure, and a calm "fight or flight" response. It also increases production of melatonin, the body's sleep hormone.
