Trouble Sleeping? You're not alone.
One in five Canadians have a sleep disorder and nearly one in five have an anxiety disorder—and consumers want natural solutions. Studies suggest weighted blankets may create a natural boost in mood, ease stress and anxiety, promote deeper sleep, encourage athletic recovery, and soothe Restless Leg Syndrome. LOTUS™ weighted blanket combines luxury finishes with proven science to ground you in feelings of security, stability, and safety.
The act of sleeping with a weighted blanket encourages Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation (DTPS).
DTPS can mimic the feeling of being hugged, swaddled or cradled. According to a 2009 study by Temple Grandin, Ph.D in the Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology, DTPS has a calming effect in children with autism and ADHD, and a similar relaxing effect in adults without a medical diagnosis.
Deep pressure encourages the production of serotonin, a hormone involved in elevating mood. Serotonin is also a precursor to melatonin, a hormone responsible in the regulation of sleep. In other words, deep pressure therapy can play a positive role to help with both mood and sleep.
Since 2018, LOTUS™ has become a leader in weighted blanket innovation, taking feedback from Canadian customers to create a unique therapeutic blanket. LOTUS ranks amongst the highest in terms of material selection, weight distribution and ease-of-use.
