If You Don’t Have A Gravity Weighted Blanket – You Are Missing Out
Originally designed to help those with sensory disorder’s, Autism and RLS, weighted blankets help reduce anxiety by giving a “feeling of being hugged”. The blanket molds to your body to provide pressure that aids in relaxing the nervous system. Think of it like a baby being swaddled. The blanket should be equivalent to about 10% of your body weight & the blanket is not meant to be shared. 100% without a doubt, that The Gravity Blanket changed my life. No more insomnia and no more waking up multiple times during the night. It is NOT an inexpensive purchase, but worth it beyond words! It has literally changed my life. Use code JENSLIST15 for 15% off your purchase.
