Whether you or someone in your family have insomnia, Restless Leg Syndrome, stress, anxiety, fibromyalgia, autism, Sensory Processing Disorder or you just like to feel cuddly, Cozy Calm blankets
can help you sleep. They can also help calm your children too!
In a special patented design, these weighted blankets feel like a “long hug” according to the website. Inventor Eileen Parker designed the blankets for herself after experiencing the calming of a weighted blanket during occupational therapy for her own autism and SPD. She was, however, greatly unsatisfied by the feel of the blankets themselves.
The weight of the blanket blocks the messages to the brain by overwhelming the sensory input from mental and physical stresses on the nervous system through a process called proprioceptive input. When these messages are blocked, the body can relax, calm itself and you begin to feel sleepy and calm.
So, if you’re plagued by insomnia, stress or any other sensory condition or you know of an autistic child, a Cozy Calm blanket could help everyone sleep better.
