Unlike a regular blanket that uses lightweight material as filling, Restasy weighted blankets are specially designed to be heavier (a la "weighted" blanket). The purpose of the extra weight is to provide gentle pressure across your body. This unique sensation mimics the feeling of a hug, sending signals throughout your nervous system to naturally relax.
The additional weight is created by using tiny non-toxic glass beads to fill small compartments of the blanket to provide a soothing and comforting pressure, evenly distributed across your entire body.
The blanket gently molds to the shape of your body to help you relax when you are feeling stressed or to help you fall asleep faster with a deeper, more quality sleep at night.
