I have wanted a weighted blanket for quite some time to relieve anxiety and calm me down. My boyfriend got me this as a gift and it’s absolutly perfect. I got the 12 pound one and it’s a very comfortable yet weighted feeling. I like how the cover is not too warm because I over heat easily when I sleep.
Balance Weighted Blanket
- Deep touch pressure simulation mimics the sensation of being held or hugged to decrease stress.
- May help with insomnia, anxiety, restlessness, ADD/ADHD, and related issues.
- Machine washable and dryable cover.
Weighted blankets offer deep touch pressure simulation, which provides the sensation of being hugged. Their use has been shown to increase serotonin and melatonin levels, while decreasing cortisol, in order to promote relaxation and groundedness in those with insomnia, anxiety, restlessness, ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, and other related issues. It can be used several ways: to cover the body while sleeping, wrapped around shoulders while sitting, or laid across the lap or legs.
