Weighted blankets have been used in niche medical communities for many years. But only recently have the measurable health benefits for all started to emerge in new scientific studies. To put it simply, the findings have been amazing: weighted blankets have been shown to help people fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. Without a prescription, therapeutic training, or changes in their routine.
Weighted blankets are engineered to be 8-12% of your body weight to relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged. More specifically, Polar Night uses the power of proprioceptive input (more commonly known as “deep touch pressure stimulation”), a well regarded therapeutic method that stimulates pressure points on the body linked to improved sleep, mood, and relaxation.
Deep touch pressure stimulation has been shown to increase serotonin and melatonin, the hormones responsible for calming relaxation, while decreasing cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress. This natural, physiological approach decreases heart rate, blood pressure, and more, improving mood and promoting restful sleep and relaxation.
