DEEP SLEEP – WEIGHTED GRAVITY BLANKETS

The idea of weighted gravity blanket therapy, also called deep-touch therapy, goes back to a basic human behaviour known to calm us — being held. Clinical studies show that when certain pressure points on the body are stimulated by touch, the brain releases serotonin. This neurotransmitter is responsible for regulating various brain functions, including sleep and mood.

The key to this stimulation is the heaviness of the blanket, which is able to create a deep pressure. Aside from swaddles, this kind of pressure is present in hugs and when we stroke animals.

THE BENEFITS

MADE WITH QUALITY MATERIALS

Our Weighted Blankets are weighted with Premium Micro Glass Beads. As fine as sand, the glass beads are rounded to create a smooth uniform fill and have a dense feel and weight. They are Non-Toxic, Non-Allergenic, Non-Combustible and Environmentally Harmless. Your Weighted Blanket Insert is now made up of several layers, this ensures even distribution of weight and prevents any beads escaping.

How it Works

When you’re stressed or anxious, you don’t sleep well because your heart is beating too quickly. Weighted gravity blankets combat this by using “pressure therapy”. This means applying a calming amount of pressure to your entire body, and especially to key pressure points, similar to the feeling of being held or hugged.

This gentle pressure relaxes you by activating your parasympathetic nervous system, which lowers your heart rate and delivers an overall feeling of calmness to allow you to sleep better.

Pressure therapy is also an effective treatment for ADHD and autism. With the sense of touch so gently heightened by the weighted gravity blanket, the person is not do distracted by other stimuli such as noise or movement.

Weighted Blankets for Children

At first, deep touch pressure stimulation was used to help children with ASD or SPD. These kids often experience sensory overload, meaning they have difficulty filtering out background sensory information. This can cause restlessness, anxiety, and trouble participating in seated activities and ongoing tasks. Of course, sleeping can be difficult in this state as well.

Studies have shown weighted gravity blankets can help children with ASD fall asleep. The kids benefit not only from the release of serotonin the blankets bring, but also from the decrease in heart rate and blood pressure that result from the calming effect. This allows for more control, and in turn, a better chance of rest.
Weighted blankets and deep-touch pressure benefits those without a specific sensory disorder as well.

One 2004 study involved participants complaining of sleep dysfunction, stress, and pain, and showed a reduction in nighttime cortisol levels while patients were “grounded” during sleep with weighted blankets. A reduction in cortisol, the primary stress hormone, lead to overall better sleep quality.

Unexpectedly quick delivery and as soon as I pull the blanket up to my shoulders it’s like a big hug and I’m ready for sleep. Also use it with my duvet so not even overheating. Didn’t know I really needed it until I got it!
