What are the Benefits of using a Weighted Blanket ?

These blankets have been shown to help with:

Our Duvet-style weighted blankets add weight using small ceramic beads inside a light cover, ideal to use in bed, on the sofa or anywhere that you would like to relax.  Studies have shown that less medications for sleep problems or anxiety may needed as a result of using such a simple, relaxation remedy.

‘Deep Pressure Stimulation’ is a natural therapy which where a firm pressure is applied to the body to help promote a sense of calm.
