THE RECOMMENDED BLANKET WEIGHT
Select a blanket weight that is around 10% of the user’s body weight, unless you prefer something heavier or lighter.
The stimulation generated by Calmya’s pressure produces tactile sensory inputs that can help decrease the stress level. By reducing stress,the sympathetic nervous system will reduce its activity which promotes alertness in the body, and an increase in the activity of the parasympathetic system, which favors the condition of relaxation.
Reducing stress involves decreasing the level of cortisol and increasing serotonin – the hormone of happiness – which supports the humoral balance of the nervous system and is converted into melatonin, which regulates quality and duration of our sleep. Poor sleep, instead, reduces attention, concentration, memory and can predispose to increased irritability.
CALMYA exerts a slight pressure on the whole body, helping to reduce its micro-movements, relax the muscles and promote sleep.
