Dormir blankets founded in Melbourne, Australia help ground your body during sleep by pushing it downwards. This process, known as “earthing” or “grounding,” may have a deeply calming effect. The blankets also simulate deep pressure touch (DPT), a type of therapy that uses firm, hands-on pressure to reduce chronic stress and high levels of anxiety.
The deep pressure from the weight causes the body to produce serotonin and endorphins, which are the chemicals our bodies naturally use to feel relaxed or calm.
The rule of thumb for the ideal weight of the blanket is for it to be 10 percent of the user's body weight. We are currently only stocking the one weight, stay tuned for more sizes coming shortly.
