A weighted blanket is a therapeutic blanket that is made with weights to provide proprioceptive input to the body. It produces a sense of well being and comfort much like when you swaddle a baby.  The weight in the blanket produces the same effect. There are many weighted blanket benefits, including improving sleep and easing anxiety.

Proprioceptive input means awareness of one’s body position in space. This is again, similar to when you swaddle a baby.
