Therapeutic Adult Weighted Blankets
An effective, safe, and drug-free therapy
Weighted blankets provide pressure that cause the brain to release seratonin, a hormone that calms nerves and eases anxiety. This can greatly assist with relaxation and sleep for those with anxiety disorders, autism, or anyone that just needs help achieving a sense of calm.
Therapeutic blankets are a popular treatment option for those with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), and SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder), however they can be helpful to all.
All of the blankets below are at least 10 lbs, a suitable weight for most adults (though you may be interested in heavier blankets depending on personal preference). If you are over 170 lbs, you should be looking for at least a 12 lbs blanket.
