I have this weighted blanket on my treatment table. It’s amazing. The moment you slip under the covers its immediate relaxation. The company BlanQuil uses the concept of “compression therapy”, in laymen’s terms, it’s the idea that being hugged creates happy feelings. My blanket weighs 15 pounds, the idea is that it is suppose to be about 8-15% of your body weight, creating the feeling of being held which helps relax the nervous system. The filling of the blanket is High Density Eco Friendly glass beads, which are durable, non-toxic, washer/dryer safe and pet and kid friendly.
