What are Benefits of a Weighted Blankets?
Weighted blankets are a form of at-home therapy and provide similar benefits to deep pressure therapy. They also have proven benefits for anxiety and insomnia, and are equally beneficial for children with ADHD.
These blankets exert pressure on the user when they are lying down, which simulates the same sensation as a hug. That sensation releases oxytocin and improves general wellbeing of the users.
Another beneficial hormone released through these therapeutic blankets is melatonin which helps regulate sleep cycle and promote deep, calm sleep.
In higher quantities, steroid hormone cortisol, hampers relaxation and calmness. Weighted blankets ground the body to the bed during sleep which promotes calming effect, and thereby reduces cortisol levels.
Weighted Blankets improves bodily functions and provide more comfort and warmth along with a sensation of an embrace; thereby providing all conditions necessary for a good night’s sleep.
The soothing effect resulting from the extra pressure from these blankets is proven to reduce restlessness and anxiety.
Relieves painful fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a disease of muscles, ligaments and tendons, and it may cause unbearable pain. Weighted blankets exert pressure exactly on these parts of the human body, which works wonders in reducing pain from fibromyalgia.
Improves sleep quality
Even without any underlying medical condition, simple fatigue can cause sleeplessness. Just as a massage reduces fatigue and relaxes muscles, so do these weighted blankets.
Relieves PTSD symptoms
While weighted blankets directly resolve the impacts of PTSD – such as anxiety and depression – they also prevent nightmares and panic attacks through the extra warmth and pressure they exert on the users while sleeping.
How to Choose a Weighted Blanket?
Since many of the therapeutic benefits of weighted blankets result from the pressure they exert on the body during sleep, to gain maximum benefits it is important to pick the blanket with the right weight for you. While Quilty Weighted Blankets provide a weighted blanket chart for easy choice of the products, there are a few other things that can help you make the best choice. The general wisdom for deciding on the weighted blanket sizes for adults is to pick one that has 10 percent of your bodyweight. So for someone weighing a 100 pounds, a 10 pound blanket would be the best. Weighted blankets for children are lighter starting around 5 pounds, but for adults they come in several sizes with 10, 15, 20 or 25 pounds weight, so make your choice accordingly.
How to Clean a Weighted Blanket?

For starters, you can use a mashing machine but for heaver blankets a commercial washer may be your best bet. Secondly, avoid bleaching and be gentle with scrubbing if there is a stain. You can use warm or cold water but when it comes to drying go for tumble low setting. If you are machine drying it, go for low heat.
