What is a Weighted Blanket?
A weighted blanket is in essence, a blanket with extra weight in it.
Weighted blankets provide deep touch pressure or DTP. DTP is about gently applying pressure to the body to increase the release of serotonin, a chemical in the body that promotes relaxation.
PrettySpecial has two different types of Weighted Blankets:
Standard is 50/50 Poly Cotton top and Polar fleece bottom
Luxury is 100% Cotton Top and Coral Fleece bottom or Bubble Fleece
PrettySpecial Weighted Blankets are filled with Poly-Pellets, which are non-toxic. This provides deep pressure touch stimulation without any uncomfortable restrictions. The pressure from the weight causes the body to produce serotonin and endorphins, chemicals our bodies naturally use to feel relaxed or calm.
Benefits of a Weighted Blanket
Weighted therapy can help increase the levels of Serotonin and Melatonin overnight.
Researchers also found that deep pressure significantly decreases cortisol levels. After applying deep pressure, cortisol levels dropped by 31%.
