Deep Pressure Therapy or Deep Pressure stimulation Touch Therapy is the firm but gently squeezing hug, or holding of the body that relaxes the whole nervous system, this form of pressure can be applied with the use of a Weighted Blanket, it triggers a chain reaction in the body that releases an overall sense of calm and peace.
Our Weighted Blanket placed on your body or on top of the bed, can switch your body from running its sympathetic nervous system to its parasympathetic nervous system, also known as conversation from "Flight or Flight" to "Rest & Digest" easier
The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is the "alert" system in the body, This is the one in charge when you're facing a stressful situation, school environment, work, driving in traffic, listening to a storm, or when you perhaps receive some sad news, this SNS takes the lead, and your body begins to get tried, on edge, irritable and anxious, and your sleep and digestive system becomes compromised. This is particularly the case for kids with Autism, or any other Additional Needs like SPD, OCD, ADD/ADHD, anxiety/depression or event those with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Restless Leg Sufferers, even when they do calm down eventually it takes very little to "retrigger" this system.
The Parasympathetic Nervous System (PSNS) however brings a sense of calm and peace to the body and mind- with thee Blankets your heart rate can slow, muscles may relax and circulation can improve.
Your body Endorphins, "Happy" Hormones help you get on with life, feeling calmer, and bringing a sense of well-being
Working with this change comes a release of dopamine and serotonin, the feel-good neurotransmitters of the brian.
These hormones help with motivation, OCD, ADHD, memory, concentration, behaviours, sleep and digestion and even tummy cramps.
This blanket is also beneficial to those with PTSD or people dealing with everyday stresses of life.
