The Benefits of Weighted Blankets for Parkinson's Disease
Is your loved one unable to sleep due to Parkinson’s Disease? A disturbance of sleep is a major struggle for those afflicted with Parkinson’s. This degenerative disease of the central nervous system compromises motor skills and cognitive capabilities.
Tremors, joint stiffness, slow movements, sensory processing difficulties, and anxiety are other symptoms your loved one may be experiencing. Treatments for Parkinson’s disease include medications, diet regulation, and rehabilitation in an effort to manage symptoms.
As a caregiver, relieving symptoms and improving quality life can be overwhelming. Giving your loved one a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® supports comfort, security, and anxiety relief with a natural prescription-free approach.
Rigidity from muscle and joint stiffness can not only feel uncomfortable but also affect posture and stability. One of the advantages of a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® is its ability to reduce the severity of these problems through deep pressure touch stimulation. Draping a weighted blanket over the body gently distributes pressure without being restrictive—working like a full body massage.
With this type of stimulation the body responds by producing more serotonin, which can redirect a mood swing. Getting deep sleep so that the body can restore itself comes easier when serotonin becomes melatonin, a hormone that induces sleep. The whole family can relax with the comfort and peace that Mosaic Weighted Blankets® bring to the ill.
