A heavy blanket is one of the most efficient ways to unwind. Relax and simply fall asleep!
Heavy blankets create a ”safe zone”, promote relaxation and provide comfort.
Weighted therapy awakens receptors in the body that help relax, focus, increase body awareness and promote restful sleep.
The blankets come with a special one-of-a-kind pocket that is scented with lavender (can be replaced with other fragrances), which further promotes restful sleep.
Note: The pocket must be removed prior to washing (as seen in the picture on the right).
The heavy blanket causes a sensation known as Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS), which is similar to being held, cuddled, or getting a hug.
The DTPS response works in a similar way to a full body massage by reducing muscle and joint tension and reducing aches and pain.
Endorphins are known to cause calmness, happiness and relaxation as well as reduce pain.
Serotonin increases sensory perception and helps regulate body temperature.
Heavy blankets provide an answer to the human need for cuddling, security and comfort.
Heavy blankets are used mostly for sleep, but putting them on the shoulders or knees will also release serotonin, which then turns into melatonin, and improves concentration.

At times, people who suffer from extreme anxiety, caused by autism or other conditions, find it hard to relax.
Dr. Tempel Grandin, who suffers from autism herself and has researched ways to relieve her anxiety, discovered the advantages of pressure in relaxing an unquiet nervous system.
Dr. Grandin invented a pressure machine for herself. Other researchers and clinicians adopted her idea by using weighted blankets.
It is believed that stable pressure on the body can quiet the mind.
Researchers have found out that Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) releases serotonin, a chemical that acts as a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, sleep and sensory perception.
Heavy blankets are used mainly for sleep, but placing them on the shoulders or knees will release serotonin, which converts into melatonin and improves concentration.
