How Do Weighted Blankets Help with Anxiety?
Weighted blankets simulate the pressure associated with deep pressure touch (DPT) therapy, pressure to relax and treat chronic stress and anxiety.
According to a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, “grounding the human body to earth (“earthing”) during sleep reduces night-time levels of cortisol [the stress hormone] and resynchronizes cortisol hormone secretion more in alignment with the natural 24-hour circadian rhythm profile.”
The "grounding" that weighted blankets provide, allows you to relax enough to keep your stress hormones under control while you sleep. The researchers also found that “grounding” can improve sleep while reducing pain and stress.
