The Hidden Benefits of Weighted Blankets
Although the name “weighted blanket” is fairly self-explanatory, the reality is a bit more complex. Heavy blankets – also called weighted blankets – were developed after creator Dr. Temple Grandin noticed how it calmed cows when they were held in a compression device meant to keep them still for vaccinations.
Many people have also credited heavy blankets with so many benefits. Here are a few of them.
- It helps relieve restless leg syndrome.
Many who suffer from RLS experience insomnia due to the tingling sensations they feel in their legs when they lie in bed. A weighted blanket helps reduce these symptoms.
- It helps ease symptoms of panic disorder, OCD, and PTSD.
Aside from that, weighted blankets have also been linked to lowering blood pressure levels.
