Our handmade weighted blankets are specially designed to provide a deeply relaxing experience. The weight of each blanket delivers a deep pressure sensation commonly described as a ‘big hug’, allowing you to drift further into a state of absolute calmness. Because of the powerfully therapeutic properties, weighted blankets are mainly used to help induce deep states of relaxation, calming the nervous system and ease in falling asleep. They were first made popular from helping to support people with a wide range of conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, sensory processing disorders, fibromyalgia, PTSD, and ADHD, and now have received mainstream attention for anyone wanting to access deeper states of relaxation.
Our blankets are handmade in Asheville, NC especially for Still Point Wellness with great care taken to ensure comfort and durability. The weighted materials are odorless, non-toxic plastic pebbles, accompanied by handfuls of polyester stuffing for extra coziness.
