The gentle pressure of weighted blankets releases chemicals in the brain that are known to relax the body, slow your heart, and can have a calming effect that helps relieve chronic anxiety symptoms.
Studies show that those suffering from insomnia were able to sleep better, more comfortably, and wake up feeling more refreshed after sleeping under a weighted blanket.
PROMOTES OVERALL WELL-BEING
When draped naturally and evenly across your body, or part of your body, it provides just enough gentle pressure to release a few different chemicals into your system: oxytocin, melatonin, and serotonin. Collectively, these chemicals relax the body, reduce stress, and induce a general feeling of happiness and security.
