Deep pressuretouch stimulation


Weighted blankets have been used for years in the medical community in order to treat patients with autism, ADHS, insomnia, stress, anxieties, depression, chronic pain, Alzheimer and other mental illnesses – with great success and feedback.

LEVIA weighted blanket uses the natural force of gravity to help relax and reduce stress. The scientific trigger is called “deep pressure touch stimulation” – in short DPTS.

DPTS, to put it in simple words, is a term for weight being smoothly and evenly distributed on the body. You have felt the deep pressure touch stimulation before in form of a massage or a hug – this effect on the body is linked to better sleep, relaxation and overall well-being.

Hormones


Hormones influence our lives and control our body functions – among others sleep. The therapeutic method of DPTS (explained above) increases the production of

  • serotonin (the “feel-good” hormone)
  • melatonin (the “sleep-good” hormone)

while decreasing cortisol, a stress hormone.

Serotonin is decreasing the activity in the nervous system and calms your body and mind. Serotonin also helps to produce the “sleep-good” hormone melatonin, which is responsible for telling us when it’s time for bed.

Due to our busy lifestyle, the smartphone and irregular sleeping schedules, the production of melatonin can get altered. LEVIA helps to reclaim your sleep by triggering the production of those hormones – in a natural, drug-free way.
