When you snuggle into your Gravity Sleep Oasis® Weighted Blanket, the stress of the day will melt away and you’ll feel safe, warm, and comfortable.
The underlying science behind weighted blankets is one reason they are so popular, even if it isn’t exactly clear how they work. The science is called deep touch pressure and provides increased relaxation and stress relief. Gravity Sleep Oasis® Weighted Blankets give your body the equivalent of a warm, unconditional hug.
The Science Behind Weighted Blankets
The question most people ask is why the heaviness is so calming. To better understand how this works let’s look at the body’s sensory system.
When your body takes information in from the environment, your eight senses process it, and then respond. The 8 sensory systems in your body are:
- auditory (sound/hearing)
- visual (sight)
- olfactory (smell)
- gustatory (taste)
- tactile (touch)
- vestibular (movement)
- proprioceptive (input from muscles and joints)
- interoception (internal sensors showing physical conditions)
When your central nervous system has difficulty processing any of this sensory information, your body’s responses are ‘abnormal and manifest in different ways.
Deep pressure or deep touch pressure therapy (DTP) is firm physical sensory input that provides muscle sensation to the whole body. This can consist of cuddling, hugging, squeezing, compression, or swaddling. When administered to the whole body, deep touch pressure therapy (DTP) has a calming, organizing effect on children and adults alike.
