Anxiety can be caused by day to day pressures or more complicated underlying issues. Whatever the cause, it results in feelings of often overwhelming disconnect, hopelessness, increased adrenaline levels, insomnia. Treating anxiety can often improve the outcome of other chronic diseases. Evidence suggests that people suffering from anxiety are at greater risk for developing a number of chronic medical conditions including gastrointestinal disorders, chronic respiratory disorders, heart disease.
Weighted blanket therapy can be used in bed as a sleep aid or draped over the lap to simply calm. Whether to aid in sleep or merely to reduce daytime anxiety the sleeping net is a drug free aid to help increase feelings of connection, well-being and overall happiness.
The blankets act as Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) which triggers the release of Serotonin, Melatonin and Oxytocin. These chemicals naturally help the mind feel safe and secure allowing the user fall asleep faster and decrease sleep fragmentation throughout the night. The sleeping net even allows for the user to put the blanket over their head which seems to even more efficiently trigger the natural chemical release.
