100% Cotton Adult Gravity Blanket
A gravity (weighted) blanket is a special device to aid sleep.
Weighted blankets have been developed for the purpose of relieving stress and anxiety. While sleeping with these blankets, users are provided with the sensation of being hugged or embraced. 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.
Gravity blankets should not be confused with thicker or down filled blankets because they are made with special deep touch technology that spreads even pressure all over your body.
The weight of the blanket, which equals to approximately 10% of your own body weight, creates a pleasant and satisfying sense of well-being when using the blanket at night. The result is a euphoric feeling of complete relaxation for your body and nervous system. Your body releases serotonin (happiness hormone) and melatonin (sleep hormone), so you can fall asleep peacefully. Alternatively, you may choose to sit calmly while relaxing on your settee or a chair.
The science behind the weighted blanket is strong:
Recent scientific studies have recently begun to discuss the various health advantages. The results found so far are remarkable. Weighted blankets use the power of proprioceptive input, also known as “deep touch" pressure stimulation, which is a well-regarded therapeutic treatment that stimulates pressure points found in the body. This pressure stimulation contributes to the improvement of sleep, mood, and relaxation.
The weight in the blanket is a result of the quality soft 100% cotton fabric being filled with high-density glass pellets (non-toxic and tasteless).
Gravity blankets are only suitable for adults.
