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 incredibly reassuring to someone who has sensory perception disorders and experiences a situation that triggers 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.
Whatever the environment is that causes anxiety, we have a huge range of weighted products that we make here in Worcester and all come with a Lifetime Guarantee, that can help you find the reassuring hug that you need to relax and reduce the levels of stress and anxiety.
