There’s a reason being touched, hugged, and held feels so
good. It’s because the pressure sensation of touch causes the brain to release
serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for promoting feelings of well-being
and sound sleep, among other things. For centuries, humans have used deep
pressure therapy to soothe their babies through swaddling. Now, weighted
blankets can give this comfort to older children and adults.
Users have described the sensation of lying beneath one
of our weighted blankets as The Best Hug
Ever. Weighted blankets apply an even, gentle deep touch pressure to the
entire body. Lying beneath a weighted blanket is like lying in the arms of a
loved one. It’s an excellent way to soothe and calm children, especially those
with sensory processing disorders, autism spectrum disorders, or anxiety.
But weighted blankets are heavy and aren’t convenient for
use outside the home. Our weighted lap buddy lap pads are the perfect answer
for those who use weighted
blankets for autism and other sensory processing disorders. These small,
convenient lap pads are easy to take to work, school, the office, or on play
dates. Take the comfort of a weighted blanket everywhere you go.
