We invented the Weighted Blanket 20 years ago. Since then, Weighted blankets, like The Magic Blanket™ , have shown to generate proprioceptive input on our bodies. For many people, this input causes the brain to release neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, among others. These neurotransmitters released by the brain have naturally calming effects, which have proven to be beneficial for people experiencing sensory integration disorder, anxiety, stress, Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD, and Rett Syndrome. It's important to note that The Magic Blanket is not a substitute for care from an occupational therapist or mental health professional.
