Get this cozy, soft blanket that can be washed.
The weighted blanket has MANY uses!!
It is great therapy for children/ people with Autism, Restless Leg Syndrome and Sleep disorders, Anxiety Disorders, and much more!
Weighted therapy can help increase the levels of Serotonin and Melatonin overnight, helping with Insomnia: Falling asleep and staying asleep.
Weighted blankets use deep pressure touch simulation (DPTS) to relax the body and make a person feel safe, guarded and secure, which calms their unease and helps their body go to sleep.
The weight of the blanket stimulates the receptors on your body which then activates the neurotransmitters in your brain to bring a sense of happiness to the person.
A very effective way to ease an OCD patient’s anxiety and to treat the inability to calm them down from a mind consuming thought is to use a weighted blanket.
