With the acceleration of the pace of work and life now, we often feel tired and tired, followed by stress, anxiety, and insomnia. Xiaobian once had severe insomnia for a while and couldn't sleep all night and all night. It ’s hard to describe the kind of feeling that the sky is getting brighter with open eyes ~
For this reason, I have tried a lot of physical equipment to help, what Cassia pillows, Thai rubber pillows, single-bag spring mattresses, etc., are more or less helpful, but recently I found a "new world"- -Gravity blanket! I heard that it can relieve stress and help sleep. Is it really so amazing? Let's take a look together!
What is a gravity blanket?
Gravity blanket is a kind of health auxiliary blanket designed according to the weight of 10% of the human body. The weight is usually between 1.8kg and 11.3kg. Seeing this weight, it feels like its name says, the biggest feature of this blanket Just: Shen!
It is 7% -12% of a person's weight. Covering it is as if being hugged and falling asleep.
The gravity blanket uses the principle of deep contact pressure to stimulate the pressure points on the body, as if it is being embraced, and relaxes the nervous system.
