Benefits of Using a Weighted Blanket

Weighted blankets were initially introduced to the Canadian market about 10 years ago as custom made solutions for children with autism. Known for their calming effects, they’ve now moved into a line of weighted gear that also offers deep pressure relief and solutions to a variety of sleep and health problems. 

In more recent years, weighted blankets have gained popularity for improving sleep quality and relieving stress.

The evidence:

According to a study published in the Journal of Occupational Therapy and Mental Health, some people with insomnia were able to fall asleep faster under the blanket’s gentle weight. Many people also reported lower anxiety after use, and most preferred the weighted blanket as a calming modality.

Weighted blankets are also known for helping people fall asleep more quickly and sleep soundly. A study discussed in Psychology Today reveals that on average, length of sleep was significantly increased by the use of the weighted blanket, and movement during the night was also reduced.

Not all weighted blankets are created equal – look for the combination of health and wellness features.

With so many weighted blankets available on the market, the quality of the blanket will make all the difference.

PureCare’s Zensory collection allows you to create a cleaner sleep surface and features the highest quality materials and construction. You’ll love the weighted sensation that the naturally hypoallergenic, non-porous glass bead fill provides. And they won’t absorb moisture or other irritants.

In addition, the small 4″ fill pockets and durable seven-layer fabrication of our weighted blankets provide a continuous balance of even weight distribution while minimizing noise.

PureCare weighted blankets are treated with antimicrobial silver chloride that inhibits bacteria, mold and mildew that cause deterioration, stains, and odours on this product.

Designed from nature, Tencel™ cellulosic fibers are botanically crafted from raw wood pulp and provide a cool-to-the-touch, naturally breathable and exceptionally comfortable sleep surface.

The weighted blanket experience:

What is it like to experience weighted wellness? 

Calming | Moderate, balanced pressure may help alleviate anxiety and naturally subdue stress.

Comforting | Contoured compression may gently stimulate and soothe pressure points for grounding comfort.

Relaxing | Weighted sensation may ease natural impulses to fidget, toss and turn, linking it to improved sleep.

At first there is a gentle, contoured compression and a sense of calm surrounds you. As pressure points are softly stimulated throughout your body, a soothing equilibrium of grounded comfort takes hold, naturally melting stress away. 

You close your eyes, relaxing into a peaceful tranquility that unifies your body and mind in the journey toward sleep.
