When used correctly, weighted products help individuals facing sensory challenges reduce everyday levels of anxiety and stress.

However, these products often accomplish much more. Therapists continue to discover more uses for weighted products to treat a wide range of disorders.

Weighted products help all ages and each provides different benefits:

  • Insomnia. Weighted products, such as weighted blankets help immensely with insomnia. They provide deep touch pressure stimulation, promoting the release of Melatonin, the chemical that regulates sleep. Ultimately this helps you fall asleep faster, sleep longer and feel well rested.
  • Stress and anxiety. Unfortunately, many people suffer from anxiety and everyone at some point experiences stress. However, weighted products help reduce blood pressure and heart rate, relieving anxiety and stress. They also increase the production of Serotonin –– the happy chemical.
  • Fibromyalgia. This disease causes chronic pain and there is no known cure. While some patients may take drugs to ease their symptoms, others have found comfort in the use of weighted products. The gentle but firm pressure associated with weighted products has been known to reduce fibro flare ups.
  • ADHD. Those who have attention-deficit hyperactivity syndrome (ADHD) often have issues with focusing, restlessness, impulsiveness and completing tasks. Weighted products, such as weighted lap pads, provide a calming and soothing approach that helps those with ADHD relax and focus on the task at hand.=
  • Autism. Weighted products, such as weighted vests, help symptoms of autism by invoking touch therapy. This process reduces stress levels and increases serotonin and dopamine –– chemicals that regulate mood, movement, impulse control and more.
  • Panic disorder. Episodes of panic disorder, or generalized panic attacks can happen at any given time. Often those who use weighted products feel less anxious and find a decrease in their triggers.
  • Pet anxiety. Humans are not the only ones that suffer from anxiety and stress. Often dogs struggle with loud noises, storms, fireworks and more. Just as weighted products soothe humans, they provide pets with a sense of calming and relaxation.
