Do you suffer from nighttime anxiety? The Kally Weighted Anxiety Blanket uses Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation therapy (pressure via touch), proven to reduce anxiety and improve sleep.
Pressure on the body delivers an increase in the release of serotonin (happy hormone), reduces cortisol (stress chemical) whilst increasing melatonin (sleep chemical) creating a sense of calm, deep sleep.
Tiny glass beads deep inside the blanket’s quilted pockets provide a comforting, even pressure across your body to create a feeling of deep relaxation that resembles being hugged.
The weight also provides a relaxing pressure which can benefit those who suffer with restless leg syndrome, arthritis, fibromyalgia and body pain.
A smooth breathable quilted cotton fabric creates a soft, breathable outer with anti-allergy treated fibres swaddled inside to protect against bacteria.
The blanket weights 6.8kg and is advised to be used by those aged 12 and up.
