Weighted blankets are blankets filled with small, evenly distributed weights, made of plastic pellets.
They are designed to provide a calming and therapeutic effect through the application of gentle pressure.

Weighted blankets work by utilizing Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS), which applies gentle pressure to the body. This pressure stimulates the
release of serotonin and dopamine, neurotransmitters that promote relaxation and improve mood.

Weighted blankets can be beneficial for a wide range of individuals, including children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly. They are particularly useful for those who may experience anxiety, stress, insomnia, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, or have difficulties with sleep.

Weighted blankets are generally safe for daily use, but it's essential to choose an appropriate weight based on individual preferences and body
weight.
It's recommended to select a blanket that is around 10% of your body weight for optimal comfort and effectiveness.

Sleeping with a weighted blanket every night can offer several benefits.
It can provide a sense of security and comfort, reduce anxiety and
stress levels, promote better sleep quality, and potentially alleviate
symptoms of certain conditions like insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and
sensory processing disorders.

Weighted blankets have been shown to be beneficial for individuals with insomnia.
The deep pressure stimulation they provide can help regulate the body's natural sleep-wake cycle, promote relaxation, and reduce nighttime awakenings, resulting in better sleep quality.

What is a weighted toy, what are they used for...

A weighted toy is a specially designed toy that is filled with small weights or beads to provide a sense of deep touch pressure, also known
as proprioceptive input. This added weight stimulates the body's proprioceptive system, which helps to regulate sensory processing and
promote a sense of calm and relaxation.

Weighted toys are used for a variety of purposes, primarily to promote sensory integration and provide therapeutic benefits. They can be helpful for individuals with sensory processing disorders, anxiety, ADHD, autism, and other conditions that affect sensory regulation.
Weighted toys can provide comfort, reduce stress levels, enhance focus and attention, and improve overall well-being.

Weighted toys work by applying deep pressure to the body, which can have a calming and organizing effect on the nervous system. The added weight helps to stimulate the proprioceptive system, which sends signals to the brain to promote a sense of body awareness, grounding, and
relaxation. This can help individuals feel more centered and in control, allowing them to better cope with sensory challenges and emotional
stress.

Weighted toys can benefit children and adults alike, especially those with sensory processing difficulties or conditions such as autism, ADHD,
anxiety, or insomnia. They can also be helpful for individuals experiencing stress, restlessness, or difficulty with focus and attention. Additionally, weighted toys
