What are the benefits?
Weighted Blankets can be effective sensory solutions to reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus and attention, and enhance positive mood and emotions. With benefits for just about anyone, weighted blankets can be used for comfort, relaxation and to provide deep and restful sleep.
How does it work?
The weight acts as a type of deep pressure touch therapy that results in feeling grounded, comforted and calm in a physical and psychological way. When the weighted pressure is deeply applied to your body, serotonin is produced, which lifts your mood and your nervous system relaxes. The serotonin then naturally converts to melatonin and your body feels comforted and calm, enabling your mind and body to relax and rest.
How are they made?
All our weighted blankets are handcrafted with the highest quality and care in Newcastle, Australia. We use high-grade, recycled, non-toxic plastic poly pellets to weight our products. We then double stitch and double layer with four layers of fabric to ensure the best strength and durability for all our products.
The Happy Senses mission is to make the benefits of sensory therapy available to everyone through our funky designs, high quality materials, luxurious textures and gorgeous colours in a variety of inclusive products for all ages and abilities.
Spot clean or gentle handwash entire blanket in cold soapy water.
Lay flat outside to air dry in shade.
