Weighted blankets use proprioceptive input, also known as “deep touch” pressure stimulation, a well-regarded therapy that stimulates pressure points in the body. This pressure stimulation improves sleep, mood, and relaxation.
This therapy also reduces cortisol levels and increases serotonin production. Thus, the treatment helps regulate the heart rate and blood pressure.
Although weighted blankets have been used in the medical community for some time now, advanced scientific studies have only begun to discuss the various health advantages. So far, the results are remarkable.
In recent decades, numerous scientific studies have proven the benefits and positive medical effects of weighted blankets.
