Our blankets are designed for those battling symptoms of Anxiety, Insomnia, PTSD, Restless Leg and Depression.
Weighted blankets have also been shown to increase serotonin in the body that helps regulate mood and ease relaxation.
In a recent study, 63% reported lower anxiety after use. Our nervous systems also calm down when under the weight of a heavy blanket. This can be a major help for those who can’t fall asleep due to anxiety.
I have worked with a number of clients struggling with anxiety whose particular “ go-to” anxiety is catastrophic thinking...
A general rule when purchasing a weighted blanket is taking your weight and multiplying it by .10, or taking 10% of your body weight. Using that number, follow the chart below to guide you in finding the perfect blanket!
|100 - 130 lbs||140 - 170 lbs||180 - 200 lbs||220 + lbs|
|10 lb||15 lb||20 lb||N / A|
|Flannel||10 lb||15 lb||20 lb||N / A|
|CoolMax®||15 lb||15 lb||20 lb||25 lb|
Fall in between two different weight limits for two blankets? We suggest going with the smaller of the two blanket weights.
Still not sure which size to buy? Most of our customers buy one of the 15-pound blankets.
