Through the use of deep pressure, Weighted Blankets aid in providing proprioceptive feedback and enhance sensory integration while relaxing the body and the central nervous system. When used, the brain releases chemicals such as Seratonin and Melatonin; pleasure and calming chemicals natural in our bodies. It helps to feel good, relax, rest and sleep.
