More than a blanket it's an experience
As I type this, my mind is focused, certain, motivated. My hands type effortlessly on the keyboard as my entire body feels relaxed, almost numb. I feel like a million bucks.
Before you ask, no, I’m not on drugs. I’m only experiencing the very tangible benefits of “deep touch pressure”.
This complicated term refers to the tactile feedback provided by firm stroking, cuddling, hugging, and squeezing. Deep touch pressure calms the body and focuses the mind by acting on the autonomic nervous system (Hsin-Yung Chen et. al., 2011). It increases endorphin levels (the neurotransmitters that makes you feel good) and decreases cortisol and blood pressure (indicators of anxiety and stress). As if it was not enough, it promotes the release of serotonin AND dopamine, the “happy” and “motivated” neurotransmitters.
So… What does any of it have to do with a blanket?
If it were just an average one, nothing. But as it turns out, this is not your average blanket!
In order to trigger the benefits of deep touch pressure, our blanket had to be designed to be precisely 10% of your body weight, thus mimicking the sensation of being hugged or embraced.
