The benefits of Mosaic Weight Blankets® for anxiety, stress, and insomnia.
Weighted blankets are custom made to be 10% of your body weight. The pressure provided by a weighted blanket that lays evenly weighted on you simulates the feeling of being hugged and releases serotonin into your system, which are natural chemicals produced in your brain that make you feel good, relax more and sleep more deeply. The pressure from a weighted blanket can also lower cortisol levels, making you feel a tiny bit less stressed. Nothing is better than the feeling of being hugged or cuddled, it’s a great feeling. Our blankets are made of premium material that will make you feel wonderful.
Adults, teens, and children can benefit from weighted blanket therapy. Mosaic Weighted Blankets are a safe and effective non-drug therapy for anyone seeking a solution for loss of sleep and relaxation.
"In psychiatric care, a weighted blanket is one of our most powerful tools for helping people who are anxious, upset, and possibly on the verge of losing control," says Karen Moore, OTR/L, an occupational therapist in Franconia, N.H.
"These blankets work by providing input to the deep pressure touch receptors throughout the body," Moore says. "Deep pressure touch helps the body relax. Like a firm hug, weighted blankets help us feel secure, grounded, and safe." Moore says this is the reason many people like to sleep under a comforter even in summer. (Source: Psychology Today)
