Kocoono Weighted Blankets are great tools to reduce anxiety and enable restfulness. Their concept is based on Deep Touch Pressure Therapy, which is firm but gentle pressure applied to the body similar to a hug or massage, which helps calm your Nervous System and relax your muscles, making it easier to wind down before bed.
Here there are some 6 ways a Kocoono Blanket can help you Sleep Deeper and Better:
1. Calms your Nervous System
The pressure Therapy switches off the Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) & stimulates the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS). The activation of the PNS makes you feel embraced, comforted while reducing your Stress & Anxiety. Goodbye anxiety, hello inner and outer peacefulness!!!
2. Reduces Cortisol and releases Serotonin
The Kocoono weighted blanket applies deep touch pressure which helps to reduce cortisol levels associated with stress and stimulates serotonin, the relaxation hormone. This serotonin will help you fall asleep faster, sleep deeply, and feel rested in the morning! Couple this with a good morning routine and your night-time routine is certain to benefit.
3. Boosts Melatonin
When the weighted blanket stimulates serotonin, melatonin hormones are also released, promoting sleep and helping regulate the sleep cycle.
4. Mimics a Hug making you feel cocooned and secured
Deep Touch Pressure Therapy mimics a HUG. Research shows that cuddles are effective to reduce cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and increase oxytocin levels. Many of Kocoono's customers have confessed that they feel hugged using their Kocoono™, and it becomes an inseparable night companion! Who doesn't want to feel like they are in a cocoon in bed?!
5. Reduces Anxiety
The weight applied by Kocoono Weighted Blankets can be used as a grounding technique for anxiety. Studies show that grounding reduces night-time levels of cortisol, helping people to sleep. With the Kocoono weighted blanket, you will find that your body will naturally feel calmer as the gentle pressure cocoons your body.
6. Reduces Restlessness
The distributed weight encourages stillness and decreases the impulse to move. Kocoono weighted blanket acts as a massage, stimulating pressure points in the body and relaxing the muscles. You will have a drastic reduction in restlessness and the need to move back and forth. The next day you will wake up refreshed! Goodbye restlessness, hello happy days!
