When Theresa discovered Mosaic Weighted Blankets online, she knew her friend and single-mom, Isabel, needed to have one in her household. Isabel has two boys, ages 16 and 10. Her 10 year old, David, is the one who would benefit from weighted blanket therapy.
David has significant ADHD. He is constantly fidgeting and jumping around - he can't even sit through a movie. David is also a sleepwalker and a very restless sleeper. He is in constant motion virtually all the time. They tried medications but stimulants made him twitch so he couldn't continue them.

Most people don't realize how therapeutic a weighted blanket can be -- probably because it's not an intuitive cause and effect that weight on the body would be relaxing. But it is just that.
The deep pressure of the weighted blanket causes the body to release natural chemicals, serotonin and endorphins, which naturally calm. It really is amazing that something as simple as a really heavy blanket can relieve so many things -- from Autism to ADHD, anxiety to bipolar disorder, cerebral palsy to FASD, chronic pain to Fibromyalgia -- a weighted blanket can provide relaxation, calm and even neurologically-induced-pain relief.
