BENEFITS

Weighted blankets work like a deep tissue massage. The pressure releases serotonin in the body and some of that serotonin becomes melatonin. Melatonin helps us relax and sleep. 💤
 
○ Reduces anxiety
○ Feels like you’re being hugged or held gently
○ Helps you relax
○ Improves your quality of sleep

DETAILS

○ 100% cotton
○ Filled with PVC compound beads
○ Machine washable
 
SIZE:
Our weighted blankets are about the size of a twin blanket. With larger blankets, like a Queen or King size, the weight is wasted on the bed instead of the person receiving the benefit. Our personal-sized blankets are also easier to handle.
○ 42” x 74”
○ Made for individual use

USAGE

FOR SLEEP:
It may take a few nights to get used to the weight and change old patterns. We recommend you try sleeping with your blanket for at least a week and in a few different ways to see how your body is best comforted.
 
○ Place the weighted blanket on top of your comforter, covering your whole body from chest to toes.
○ Use the weighted blanket on top of your sheet, with no comforter.
○ Place the weighted blanket on only the LOWER half of your body.
○ Place the weighted blanket on only the UPPER half of your body.
 
FOR ANXIETY:
Cover yourself with your weighted blanket. Then, intentionally notice each part of your body.
 
○ Start with your feet - notice the pressure of the blanket on your feet.
○ Notice your knees - sometimes squeezing your knees together can help you “get in” your body more.
○ Notice the pressure of the blanket on your torso.
○ Notice the feeling of the weight on your chest and shoulders.
