Weighted Blankets for Beds

Our customers tell us that our weighted blankets shorten the time it takes them to get to sleep and help them sleep longer. Weighted blankets have also been scientifically proven to reduce anxiety.

This is because weighted blankets use Deep Pressure Touch. Deep Pressure Touch is often used by Occupational Therapists and is firm, gentle pressure that is applied consistently.

The weight of a weighted blanket applies this same Deep Pressure Touch. It feels like a great big hug.

 

Deep Pressure Touch physically calms the body and the mind

Deep Pressure touch literally soothes both the body and mind. Clinical studies – like this one – have measured this physical reaction. 

It works by acting on your central nervous system and causing two responses. Our central nervous systems are made up of two separate parts: the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.

 

Response #1: It dampens the “fight or flight” state

The sympathetic nervous system keeps you in an alert state. It is commonly known as the “fight or flight” response.

And it is – simply – exhausting to be in this state for extended periods of time.

Deep Pressure Touch shuts it down.

 

Response #2: It soothes the body and mind

Next, Deep Pressure Touch activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This part of the central nervous system releases endorphins – the body’s “happy” hormones. These slow your heart rate and rate of breathing. This makes you feel more relaxed.

And then it triggers the brain to release serotonin. This is the neurotransmitter that helps you sleep.

And this, in a nutshell, is how weighted blankets work to help you go to sleep faster and stay asleep longer.

 

Why Calming Moments’ weighted blankets?

Our weighted blankets fit on top of a bed with no overhang. This gives the best Deep Pressure Touch effect. 

But here are some other reasons to buy a Calming Moments’ weighted blanket.

  • All Calming Moments’ weighted blankets are made to our high quality standards right here in Australia. We make each and every blanket with love, care and attention to detail. Our weighted blankets are certified Australian-made.
  • NDIS-registered provider. The NDIS may fund your blanket if you are a scheme participant.
  • We source as many of our inputs as we can in Australia – so that you know they are completely safe. Our Australian-made micro glass beads are quiet and don’t make any “swishing” sounds so that you can sleep better.
  • Our weighted blankets are machine-washable on a cold, gentle cycle.
  • We back each and every weighted blanket we make with the Calming Moments’ unique 2-year guarantee. This means that we will remake or replace your weighted blanket in the unlikely event that the stitching breaks.
  • Our weighted blankets are suited to our warm Australian climate.
  • We carefully size each blanket’s pockets so that the weights don’t gather and cause undue pressure.
  • Afterpay and Zippay available.

Occupational Therapists recommend using 10% of your body weight for the best deep pressure touch effect in Single and King Single beds. We recommend adding 1kg extra to the Double and Queen Size blankets.
