Weighted therapy is the use of weight to apply deep pressure to the body. The weight and pressure stimulate the proprioceptive sense helping those who are “sensory seeking” to relax, focus, and develop a greater awareness of their body.
Applying a weighted product can feel like having a big hug which can be incredible reassuring to someone who has sensory perception disorder and are in a situation that is triggering anxiety.

So much so, we offer a no-hassle LIFETIME GUARANTEE on all our Sensory Direct weighted blankets. We have a great range in different weights, sizes and materials to find the right blanket for you.
Due to the weight and deep pressure input of a weighted blanket, they help with calming, sleep and concentration. Proven also to aid anxiety, restless leg syndrome, help to ease transitions and reduce meltdowns, plus much more.
