Weighted blankets are the ultimate relaxing and sleep improvement tool and are designed to be roughly 7-10% of your body weight.
Hypnoser uses Deep Pressure Stimulation to mimic the feeling of being hugged for a sense of calmness and security - the same way a baby benefits from being swaddled.
A study from the Journal of Sleep Medicine & Disorders reveals the positive link between using a weighted blanket and tackling insomnia. When participants used the blanket, they found it easier to fall and stay asleep, providing an innovative and drug-free tool to help improve sleep quality.
Weighted blankets are not new to the medical community. Only in recent years have weighted blankets become more of a mainstream sleep aid.
Doctors have been recommending weighted blankets to patients for decades, providing relief for various conditions such as:
Insomnia and other sleep disorders
ADD/ADHD Spectrum Disorder
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
Anxious Feelings and Panic symptoms, Stress and Tension. Cancer or Dental Anxiety, Perimenopause and Menopause symptoms
Sensory Integration Disorders/Sensory Processing Disorders
Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease
Over one-third of the adult population in the U.S. sleeps less than the recommended minimum of 7 hours each night.
A lack of shut-eye can make you feel groggy, cranky and out of sorts. It drains your mental abilities, leading to fatigue, poor concentration and fatal car accidents. Science has linked sleep deprivation to all kinds of health problems, from weight gain to a weakened immune system.
The long term effects of insomnia are real. If it continues, it can shorten your lifespan and make you prone to serious medical conditions, such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Sleeping for less than 6 to 8 hours a night increases the risk of early death by about 12 percent.
