A weighted blanket is not designed to restrain, but rather, to stimulate specific hormones and relax the mind and body. The deep pressure of the blanket on the body causes the release of endorphins and serotonin. Endorphins are the body's natural opiate and painkiller. They calm the mind, reduce pain, and cause a sense of happiness and relaxation. Serotonin has a similar effect and is often used as a treatment for various disorders including OCD, depression, and anxiety. Serotonin can even help reduce the likeliness of childhood obesity, as it can help regulate appetite and keep children from participating in the overconsumption of food, which has become a very prevalent problem in Sweden.
