The modern world and your body are often in conflict, and nowhere is this more evident than with the disruption of sleeping patterns; often leading to a frustrating cycle. The therapeutic effects of deep touch therapy can help you detach and restore your natural rhythm, enabling you to feel refreshed and be the best version of you.
The weight, pressure and embracing effect of a weighted blanket help to enhance body awareness, provide a calming sensation and prompt your body to release hormones which have an anxiety-reducing and calming effect both mentally and physically. Greater body awareness reduces tension levels in the body, and this in turn improves breathing and increases the sense of calm.
Weighted blankets tap into the therapeutic benefits of deep touch pressure stimulation, by simulating the sensation of being embraced they create a deep sense of relaxation and pure calm.
Melatonin is an essential part of your body's timekeeping system; by naturally increasing melatonin levels deep touch stimulation helps your body know that it's time to unwind and prepare for sleep.
Weighted products have been shown to reduce the stress hormone cortisol; helping you recover from stress and anxiety, to achieve a calmer, more relaxed state.
Deep touch pressure has been shown to increase levels of Serotonin which helps you reach a healthier, happier frame of mind, and soothe you towards sleep.
Wrapping up under a weighted blanket feels secure and cosy, helping you to put your mind at ease. Make a weighted product part of yoursleep routine and experience better sleep and lower stress.
