What is a weighted blanket?
A weighted blanket is heavier than a normal duvet or quilt. Our blankets are weighed down with small glass beads that conform to the shape of your body.
Research published by Occupational Therapy in Mental Health found that using a weighted blanket reduced anxiety in roughly 33 percent of the participants.
What weight should I choose?
Don’t choose a blanket that’s too heavy for your weight range: the last thing you need is to get stuck underneath a blanket. We recommend a blanket that's 10% of your body weight.
What is Deep Touch Pressure (DPT)?
Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) is the term for when pressure is applied equally across the body, which is known to have a calming effect on the nervous system.
This effect has been shown to increase the release of dopamine and serotonin (the ‘happy hormones’) by around 30%, and decrease the stress hormone cortisol by the same amount, which can help you feel relaxed and encourages more restful sleep.
Why should I buy a weighted blanket?
Weighted blankets are used to provide warmth and gentle pressure all over your body, which feels like you’re being held, or hugged. For many, the sensation induces a relaxed state which helps you fall asleep more easily.
