Today we're going to talk about the benefits of the weighted blanket, and highlight one of our personal favorite products, the Miss Bliss weighted aromatherapy blanket. It's got lavender and peppermint in it, and it can be microwaved to relieve tension and stress. But there's another reason it's such a popular item and it has to do with weighted therapy. One of the things that makes our products so popular is the sensory benefits that individuals get from them. From those with specific sensory needs to those that just need a relaxing break, there's some serious science behind why exactly we like to feel enveloped in something! It's the therapeutic application of weight at work! There are a variety of ways to incorporate the use of weight into daily activities, treatment sessions for specific individuals, or various stages of relaxation. One example of the therapeutic application of weight is the use of a weighted blanket. This practice has been used in acute psychiatry with a variety of age groups and individuals. It's also widely perceived by both consumers and therapy staff as one of the most helpful of the sensory tools used by people during crisis states. Here's a few notable benefits of using a weighted blanket.
Melatonin and Serotonin Increase
Calming for those with Sensory Needs
Mimics a Hug
Those are just a few benefits to weighted blankets, and one of the many reasons we're so in love with our Miss Bliss weighted aromatherapy blanket (maybe it has something to do with the time of year and the snow?). So when the weather outside is frightful, you've had a stressful day at work, or you just need a few minutes to decompress and take it slow, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the Miss Bliss. :)
