Weighted blankets are developed for the purpose of relieving stress and anxiety. Weighted blankets are heavier than the kinds of blankets people usually buy. They typically weigh anywhere from 4 to 30 pounds, making them heavier than the average comforter or quilt. Whilst using these blankets, they provide the sensation of being hugged or embraced.
However, they offer much more than just a hug. Studies have shown that using a weighted blanket increases the level of serotonin and melatonin as well as reduces cortisol. Also, weighted blankets contribute to the improvement of your mood by helping you to achieve a restful sleep throughout the night. For many people who have disorders such as anxiety, insomnia, or autism, weighted blankets can provide a safe alternative to medication or other types of treatment.
They can also be used to compliment existing therapies. Research has shown that weighted blankets can help reduce symptoms and manage these conditions.
