Weighted products have been 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 anxiety, stress, or sensory processing issues. Although they do not work for everyone, the individuals who benefit from deep pressure find weighted materials such as vests, blankets, lap pillows and stuffed animals to be very helpful in calming in the daytime hours and increasing sleep at night.
