What is a Weighted Blanket?
Sitting at 3-5x times heavier than your regular duvet, a weighted blanket is proven to give you a deeper sleep and reduce your anxiety– you’ll fall asleep faster to waking up more refreshed too.
The Hush Blanket is engineered to be 10% of your body weight to relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged.
This increases serotonin and melatonin levels while decreasing cortisol levels—improving your mood and promoting restful sleep at the same time. All without ever filling a prescription.

Positive Effects on Insomnia
This study from SciMedCentral found that sleep time increased while movement during sleep decreased when participants used a weighted blanket.
Participants found it easier to settle down, fall asleep, and felt more refreshed in the morning.
Reduced Anxiety in 63% of Patients
Several engineers and behavioural scientists study the safety of using a very heavy blanket.
The results were lower brain activity, lower anxiety, and 78% preferred the blanket as a calming method.
Deep Pressure Stimulation
The American Occupational Therapy Association studied the benefits of DTPS and has shown to occur even in short periods of being under a weight.
Sympathetic arousal decreased while parasympathetic arousal decreased. This led to improved performance on a test after being under the weight.
