The Science Behind Minky Weighted Blankets
Weighted blankets mimic a type of therapy known as deep touch pressure (DTP). This therapy consists of gently applying light, constant pressure. When used during sleep — a process sometimes called grounding — the body releases increased levels of serotonin and decreased levels of cortisol.
By helping regulate hormonal balance, your body’s sleep cycles return to normal. Users report an increased sense of calm and well-being and even improved focus levels.
Medical experts concur that weighted blanks can help with a variety of chronic disorders, including:
- Sleep disorders
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Weighted blankets can also help ease PTSD, sensory processing disorders and even depression. But even if you don’t suffer from any of these chronic conditions, you can enjoy more restful, restorative sleep.
