Weighted Therapy

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.

We have a wide range of weighted products. Our homemade weighted blankets can relax those at bedtime and help with getting a good night’s sleep. Or our small & portable weighted blankets are great for when you are out and about, in the car, at the dinner table, dentist or in school. Our weighted shoulder wraps and weighted lap pads can be draped across the upper body or lap when the child or adult is showing signs of distress or are equally useful for chilling out times such as lying on the sofa watching TV.

Our weighted clothing can be used during the day and are a great resources for the school or home schooling environment to increase attention-span and reduce hyperactivity.  Our stylish hoodies, gilets and fleece jackets not only provide sensory feedback but they do not stand out as a therapeutic aid, allowing them to be worn without drawing unwanted attention!
