What are weighted blankets?

Our Changing Seasons specially designed & produced weighted blankets are crafted with a bamboo insert,  so it will keep you cool in Summer and warm in Winter

The cover has glass beads inserted to provide a weighted feeling that can make you feel like you are being held (in a comforting way). 

 

The pressure the weighted blanket provides may trigger the sympathetic nervous system and this in turn may induce relaxation! 

 

The cover that accompanies the blanket is minky. It is incredibly soft & luxurious to the touch and is ideal for sensory stimulation. We've found our weighted blankets assist children with sensory disorders such as Autism & ADHD. 

Our specially designed & produced weighed blankets have a zipper on either end that will ensure your blanket is kept in place and will not move.

 

Other blankets on the market you may find, are held together with fiddly ties and will need constant adjusting.  

One way that it can reduce anxiety is it may decrease the heart rate and blood pressure.  The weighted blanket is designed to provide the feeling of being swaddled and held, this in turn relaxes the nervous system.  

 

The Sensory Weighted Blanket is filled with just enough glass beads to provide deep pressure touch stimulation without uncomfortable restriction.

 

The deep pressure from the weight causes the body to produce serotonin and endorphins, which are the chemicals our bodies naturally use to feel relaxed or calm.

 

In combination with the darkness that occurs during the nighttime hours, the pineal gland converts serotonin to melatonin, our natural sleep-inducing hormone.

 

Animals and humans alike tend to feel a sense of security when swaddled, so having a weighted blanket wrapped around the body eases the mind, allowing for complete relaxation.

 

Whether purchasing for a family member, yourself or as a gift, we are certain that you will be delighted with your Weighted Blanket product from Changing Seasons.
