Mosaic Weighted Blankets® delivers a safe and effective non-drug therapy for those suffering from anxiety, loss of sleep, or the need for calm at any time of the day or night. Weighted blankets are a healthy and calming solution for many disorders, for both kids and adults. Many experts correlate the desire for body pressure to how heavy x-ray blankets seem to relax dental patients or why so many people like to be tightly wrapped up in a blanket like a burrito.
Mosaic Weighted Blankets uses “sensory sensitive” fabrics that can breathe, are soft and not overly heavy. The blanket provides pressure therapy from its “bean bag feel” construction. Deep pressure touch stimulation (like a massage) is provided through the blanket’s non-toxic poly-pellets, which are hand-sewn into individually weighted quilting squares to provide a therapeutic effect.
The company’s initial focus was primarily in the areas of addressing self-calming and sleep needs relating to people with Sensory Processing Disorders, and Autism Spectrum Disorders, including ADD/ADHD and Asperger’s. We have also received positive testimonials from PTSD patients, as well as those suffering from Restless Legs Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and a host of other chronic disorders. We’ve seen an uptick in OTs and social workers ordering blankets to use as therapy for children up for adoption, and for those with issues relating to pain, anxiety, and insomnia.
