About Somna Blanket™
The Somna Chain Weighted Blanket is designed to relieve anxiety, agitation, insomnia, and stress. The blanket’s function is based on scientific studies into the calming effect of weight and pressure, whereby the weight of the blanket aids the release of a series of endogenous hormones that not only relieve anxiety, but also have a calming effect on blood pressure and pulse rate. The blanket provides a unique immersive effect thanks to its longitudinal chains that follow the contours of the body. The effect is that the user can relax, wind down, and enjoy a better quality sleep. In many cases, medication can be reduced or stopped completely.
