Senior, adults, teens, and children can benefit from weighted blanket therapy. Comfort weighted blankets are a safe and effective way for anyone seeking a solution for loss of sleep and relaxation.
Weighted Blanket Therapy has been proven to help alleviate the stress, anxiety, and insomnia that a person may be experiencing. These blankets work by providing (DPT) deep pressure touch receptors throughout the body. The weight of the blanket stimulates the receptors on your body which then activates the neurotransmitters in your brain to bring a sense of security to the person. Deep pressure touch helps release and increase the natural stimulants of the brain serotonin and melatonin. These hormones are a key factor to getting the body to relax and able to get a good night’s rest. Weighted blankets are like getting a firm hug, and letting that person feel the sense of security.
Our weighted blankets can help in many ways. They are intended to fit the person and not the bed. They can be used to calm and relax in many ways. Wrap your whole body in the weighted blanket, a lap pad around your shoulders, and simply just resting one on top of you or your lap.
