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 handmade 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 and weighted animlas can be draped across the upper body or lap when the child or adult is showing signs of distress or wants to re-focus and chill out.
