Weighted Calming Blanket
The Weighted Calming Blanket utilises the relaxing principles behind deep pressure stimulation therapy.
Calming Blankets are weighted blankets that are designed to improve your sleep and ease the symptoms of anxiety, stress and insomnia. They are becoming more and more popular due to these benefits.
Our Calming blankets are weighted with a unique high-density nontoxic glass micro-bead, that distributes evenly around the body for your comfort.
Suggested benefits of weighted calming blankets:
- Helps to relieve symptoms of Anxiousness & Stress
Anxiety can cause sleepless and restless nights. Proprioceptive input or ‘deep touch pressure stimulation’ through these weighted blankets can increase your awareness of our body parts and calm your sensory behaviours.
- Helps to reduce symptoms of Insomnia
Studies have shown the positive effect that weighted blankets can have on preventing insomnia through tactile & proprioceptive inputs. It has been shown that you move less and sleep deeper.
- Helps to elevate mood
It is said individuals who use a weighted blanket have significantly greater reductions in distress than those who don’t.
What is a calming blanket made of?
Our Calming Blankets are made up of 2 sections. The inner section which consists of a machine washable cover of 300 thread count cotton & nontoxic micro glass beads with polyester fibre fill (this is where the weight comes from).
And the outer cover, which is constructed of 100% Cotton, this cover protects the weighted centre. There is a zipper opening making it easy for the cover to be removed for washing or to replace with another cover.
