Many scientific studies have shown that using a weighted blanket can holistically improve the body and mind’s experience by promoting rest, relaxation and recovery.
Reduces time taken to fall asleep and improves sleep quality
Increase happiness and improved social interactions
Originally designed for patients with various behavior disorders, weighted blankets have become a tool used by people all over the world to help reduce anxiety and sooth their minds.
Weighted blankets utilise a tactile sensory input method called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is often felt in everyday life through actions like firm holding, firm stroking, cuddling.
The way DTP works is by causes the body to switch from running its sympathetic nervous system to its parasympathetic nervous system. Or, in other words, causes a shift from fight or fight to rest and digest.
The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is the “alert” system in the body. This is the one in charge when you’re facing a stressful situation like driving through heavy traffic in a storm. When the SNS takes over, you feel anxious, irritable and can’t sleep properly.
On the other hand, when the parasympathetic nervous system takes over, your heart rate slows, muscles relax, and circulation improves. The body decreases your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, while producing endorphins, dopamine and serotonin. These “happy” hormones help with motivation, impulse control, attention, memory, social behaviour, sleep, and digestion.
To ensure the best results, you must use the correct weight. Your perfect blanket weight is determined by proportion to your body weight. This proportion should be between 6-10% of your weight
However, if you plan to share your blanket with someone else or are getting a larger blanket to spread across your bed, it is recommended that you select a heavier weight!
