What is a weighted blanket?
The Minky weighted blanket is designed to be significantly heavier than a normal blanket. Filled weighted blankets get their weight from plastic or glass beads, ball bearings, or other heavy filler.
You can use the weighted blanket on your bed, sofa or anywhere you like to relax.
Benefits of a weighted blanket
Weighted blankets are derived from a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation, which induces a sense of calm through firm, controlled pressure on the body. Using a weighted blanket can have subjective and objective sleep benefits.
Ensuring comfort and safety
Weighted blankets are said to work in the same way as a tight swaddle to help newborns feel comfortable and cozy. Many people find that these blankets help them fall asleep faster by promoting a sense of security.
Reducing stress and alleviating anxiety
A weighted blanket significantly helps in managing feelings of stress and anxiety. Since stress and anxiety often interfere with sleep, the benefits of a weighted blanket can help those affected by stressful thoughts, sleep better.
Improving the quality of sleep
Weighted blankets use deep pressure stimulation, which is said to stimulate the production of the mood-enhancing hormone serotonin, reduce the stress hormone cortisol and increase levels of melatonin, a hormone that aids sleep. This can help improve overall sleep quality.
Calming the nervous system
An overactive nervous system can cause anxiety, hyperactivity, rapid heart rate and shortness of breath, all of which negatively contribute to sleep quality. By distributing weight and pressure evenly across the body, weighted blankets can calm the nervous system and activate the relaxing parasympathetic nervous system, which makes you fall asleep faster.
Quilt cover made of mink fabric
The cover consists of 100% mink polyester, an extremely soft and smooth fabric. It is a skin-friendly, synthetic material that is extremely pleasant to the touch. The cover is sewn and cannot be removed, which means it is not washable. With its anthracite shade, the Minky blanket will perfectly match the interior of any room.
New on the market
Weighted blanket Minky is a real innovation on the market. It was created based on studies that showed that simulated hugs create a soothing feeling in our body. This also has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. Studies have also shown, among other things, that users of weighted blankets relax faster and easier and fall asleep faster. The quality of their sleep was much higher. As the quality of sleep improved, the levels of the hormones melatonin and serotonin also increased. The mentioned hormones affect well-being and promote relaxation.
Abroad, the weighted blanket is also known under the term "gravity blanket" and represents a real global innovation. It is an established tool for reducing the level of anxiety. In one of the studies, it is even cited as an alternative to drugs, isolation of patients and physical limitations of the patient. A 2006 study found that 63% of 32 adults reported that their anxiety levels decreased after using a weighted blanket, and 78% even preferred using a weighted blanket as a means of calming the body.
How does the weighted blanket Minky even work?
There are glass balls inside the blanket, which, due to their even distribution, create additional weight and evenly distributed pressure on the entire body. It is with the help of said stimulation that the weighted blanket causes relaxation. Thanks to better sleep, you will wake up more rested and full of energy for the daily challenges!
