Our Sommio weighted duvet combines the therepeutic benefits of deep touch pressure stimulation with the comfort and warmth of a summer duvet to help you achieve your best night's sleep. This duvet provides similar warmth to a 4-8 tog standard duvet.
Our weighted products are effective therapeutic aids, helping people suffering from stress, anxiety and insomnia.
The weight, pressure and embracing effect 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.
