Mosaic Weighted Blankets are an organic, non-drug treatment for a wide variety of patients that will benefit from the soothing, calming weight of a heavy blanket that applies deep tissue pressure. Applying deep tissue pressure to portions or the entire body helps customers and patients relax.
Similar to a deep tissue massage, applying gentle pressure to the body causes the muscles to relax and a small pineal gland in the brain to release a powerful hormone called serotonin. Over time the body converts serotonin to melatonin which enhances the body's ability to transmit important messages between the brain and the body's sensory network. In addition, melatonin is also a well-documented as helping customers enjoy deeper and longer periods of sleep.
Mosaic Weighted Blankets sells a number of weighted products, which each serve a specific purpose outlined below:
- Weighted Lap Pads - Weighted lap pads are usually introduced to students or patients in a school room environment or therapy session. The weighted lap pads are placed in students laps to help calm them and keep them focused on the work or therapy session being presented to them. Most students say the extra weight feels good and request it after the initial introduction. Many parents hear about the lap pad's success at school and buy one to calm things down at home and on long road trips.
- Weighted Wraps - To mimic the feeling of a warm big hug and with a little more weight than a lap pad, Kansas City customers can purchase a Weighted Wrap, which is short blanket that is wrapped around the shoulders. The extra weight works great in school settings where students need a little more help calming down and work great in a quite school room or office.
- Weighted Blankets - Weighted blankets are utilized in nap time settings or at night when patients are put to bed. Children with separation anxiety adapt well to the extra pressure, which gives them the feeling of being hugged even after their parents leave the room.
