The Blankery's Premium Weighted Blanket

The Weighted Beyond Blanket is a premium weighted blanket designed to soothe the human body through Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation, providing relief from anxiety and stress during the day and improving sleep quality at night. 

Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation

DTPS is a method often used by occupational therapists in cases of chronic anxiety and stress. It works off the effect of firm but gentle pressure on the human body. This substitutes the “fight or flight” sympathetic nervous system for the “rest and digest” parasympathetic nervous system. In simple terms, the Beyond Blanket uses pressure to produce a calming effect in the nervous system.

Anxiety and Stress Relief

Our blanket also uses DTPS to initiate the decrease of cortisol, the stress hormone, and the release of dopamine and serotonin, feel-good chemicals. This means that this blanket is more than just a bedmate, it’s also a natural and holistic way to find relief from stress and anxiety on the daily.

Insomnia Relief and Improved Sleep Quality

Together with DTPS, our blanket targets the initiation and maintenance of sleep through reinforced inner stitching and high-grade Micro Glass Beads. The former keeps weight evenly concentrated while the latter functions beyond the overheating bounds of a regular blanket. The result is a controlled sensory experience with all-night cooling, helping you to fall asleep in record time and to wake feeling refreshed.
