How it works!
Are you one of the millions of people who struggle to sleep well at night? Does your mind spin with thoughts and worries you can’t turn off? When you wake up in the night do you struggle to fall back asleep? You may feel like you’ve tried everything you can think of to fall asleep better, but are still struggling,
All the time they feel like they failed at sleep and just have to settle for poor sleep and feeling tired every day;
I can feel their frustration and maybe even hopelessness that sleep is ever going to get better for you.
Now STOP. Imagine what it would feel like if you could fall asleep easily, without replaying things over and over in your mind, stay asleep all night long, without tossing and turning or constantly looking at the clock, and wake to feel refreshed and ready to start your day.
We discovered the cause of most cases of insomnia – it’s anxiety. I am not just talking about people with diagnosed anxiety disorders, but everyday people who have a hard time sleeping due to general anxiety or stress. Sound familiar?
Let’s face it when we are anxious it can be impossible to "turn off your brain at night,” and get some rest. We looked for an approach or tool that could immediately reduce anxiety for my patients. We knew that acupressure had helped those with restless sleep, and then reviewed the literature on weighted blankets for children and adults.
We we're surprised to discover that there is strong research evidence for weighted blankets to help people fall asleep and stay asleep more effectively, with no practice or effort required!
The research showed that not only did people sleep statistically longer in total but they had less restless sleep (aka tossing and turning) and woke up less after falling asleep.
The current studies suggest that by keeping a constant even pressure, that is about 10% of a person’s body weight, is similar to being swaddled by a blanket when you were just a baby. Your anxiety naturally reduces as a reaction to feeling warm and safe, and your muscles relax due to the feeling of support. Also if you were taking a sleep aid, the blanket worked even better!
Imagine what it would feel like if you could:
-fall asleep easily, without replaying things over and over in your mind
-stay asleep all night long, without tossing and turning or constantly looking at the clock
-wake feeling refreshed and ready to start your day”
