How it works

Babies tend to respond better when they are hugged, swaddled, cuddled, and rocked. If you think that getting a hug is for children only, you may be surprised that the feeling will not go away even as you age. The weighted blanket, with all of its beads, creates a comfortable cocoon that emulates the sensation of getting a warm hug from someone making this almost a magic blanket.

Weighted blankets help:

  • ADD/ADHD
  • Sleep Disorders/Insomnia
  • PTSD
  • Nervous System Disorders
  • Asperger and Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Restless Leg Syndrome

The Science: Deep Pressure Touch

Research from medical & scientific community has shown that sleeping under weight improves sleep and wellbeing. By applying firm but gentle pressure to the body, weighted blankets use a therapy tool called deep pressure touch or deep pressure stimulation to provide an overall calming effect to help achieve a deeper and better night’s sleep.

Releases Serotonin

A chemical that regulates mood, happiness and overall sense of well-being. This allows your mind to relax into a more restful, restorative sleep.

Decreases Cortisol

The hormone that causes stress. It works with certain parts of your brain to control your mood, motivation, and fear.

Releases Melatonin

The chemical that helps you sleep and relax. Melatonin creates deeper REM cycles leading to a more restful sleep.

Our Weighted Blankets

The Luna Blanket provides a combination of cloud-like, breathable materials and our superior deep pressure touch stimulation beads designed to release serotonin, melatonin and decrease cortisol. Luna is the better night's sleep blanket dreams are made of, plus it's machine washable.

OEKO-TEX® 100 Certified

(For the Fussy Sleepers)

Our weighted blankets are sewn using natural materials such as OEKO-TEX® 100 certified cotton that is safe enough for babies. Did we mention they're machine washable?

Breathability

(For the Sweaty Sleepers)

We've developed a patented layered construction with air channels to keep air circulating and maintain a comfortable sleeping temperature.

Medical Grade Glass Beads

(For the Non-Sleepers)

Microscopic beads are woven into the fibers, reducing shifting and allowing for more even distribution of weight.

Use me gradually

It’s important to gradually ease into your first use of your weighted blanket by placing it over your original comforter and across your legs for the first 7 nights.

After you’ve gotten used to the weighted sensation, lay it over 1/2 of your body for the next few days.

When you’re feeling comfortable enough, you’re ready to use it over your entire body (without the comforter). Give it time, scientists say it takes 14-21 days to form a deep sleep habit!
