How Do They Work?


Children

Weighted blankets mimic deep pressure touch stimulation and thus have a calming and soothing effect. Sensory processing disorders generally accompany other conditions and many that appear on the autism spectrum. The sensory disorders cause children to seek sensory stimulation or to "stim," which is characterized by such actions as flapping the arms or, in severe cases, self-injurious behaviors. A weighted blanket counteracts this need for sensory stimulation. The pressure that the blanket puts on the child's body meets the child's need for physical sensation and simultaneously calms the child down.

Parents of special-needs children, know how difficult it can be to calm them when they are upset or frightened. Most parents or caretakers of these children learn their child’s signs and tics and know when the child needs soothing. Weighted blankets are one relatively effective calming tool, especially to help your child sleep. These blankets have small weights sewn into them so the weight is evenly distributed. The blanket acts as a kind of pressure therapy to release serotonin and help the child calm down.

Adults

Weighted blankets are also very helpful in adults. The have been shown to help significantly with anxiety, dementia, and especially with the trauma and sleep issues that accompany PTSD.  Weighted blankets have even been used on soldiers in the field as well as those that have returned and are trying to recover. Pressure therapy can also be very beneficial for certain chronic pain conditions.

    Look forward to going to sleep now

    Thus blanket has been great, and it was the best deal I found by far, compared to all the other weighted blankets out there. It has definitely improved my ability to fall and stay asleep, and I also love the softness of the outer cover as well as the cozy feeling of the extra weight/security. The only thing to mention is that it can be a bit warm at times, so might be a bit harder to use in summer, but as long as your room is cool enough, it is so well worth the benefits.

    Great value

    This is one of the best deals I've found in Canada. Especially with the removable cover - i haven't seen that on others in this price range. Got mine, and it's super easy to clean and care for.

    Had mine for 2 weeks. My sleep's been amazing!

    I ordered the 15 LB blanket 2 weeks ago. I wasn't sure what to expect. It's a weird feeling having the weight on me at night, but it really does work! i think it stops me from tossing and turning. Once i got used to the weight, I noticed my sleeps have been deeper. I wake up feeling more refreshed.
