Magic Weighted Blanket (Chenille) – Soft-fabric Weighted Blanket for Adults

When it comes to having a way of sleeping better or even just relaxing more comfortably at home, there’s nothing like wearing a weighted blanket over your body. Essentially, weighted blankets are therapeutic blankets for at-home use that work by using deep pressure stimulation, which is thought to stimulate the production of serotonin (a mood-boosting hormone), as well as reduce stress by reducing the production of cortisol (the stress hormone), and also help to increase your body’s levels of melatonin (which is the hormone that helps you sleep). In other words, weighted blankets can provide similar benefits to deep pressure therapy. Not only have weighted blankets shown to deliver positive results for several conditions (including autism, ADHD, and anxiety), but they can also help to calm a person’s restless body, as well as help to reduce feelings of anxiety, and even help to improve a person’s sleep issues to consequently improve their overall sleep quality. With that said, if you’re looking to purchase a weighted blanket for yourself or a loved one, then consider going with the Chenille Magic Weighted Blanket.

The Chenille Magic Weighted Blanket is a super comfortable weighted blanket for adults made of a durable and very soft Chenille fabric that’s both machine washable and machine dryable, all while also coming with an attached duvet cover.

Best of all, there no zippers or ties to undo and re-do each time you need to wash it and dry it, meaning that cleaning it is a simple and easy task.



THE STORY BEHIND THE Weighted Blanket

It’s no secret that the weighted blanket has recently hit trendy levels all over the world, but did you know that weighted blankets have actually already been around for over two decades? That’s right. Now, here’s how it all started.

The concept of a weighted blanket was first introduced by Keith Zivalich in 1997, for which that concept was inspired by none other than his daughter, as she placed a beanie baby (stuffed toy) on his shoulder. Zivalich instantly noticed how calming the slight pressure felt and thought to himself that he would love to have an entire blanket that would produced the same sort of deep pressure feeling.

As such, Zivalich thought to utilize deep pressure touch stimulation therapy (DPTS) as the foundation of his heavy blanket creation. In fact, studies have show that deep pressure touch stimulation therapy (DPTS) – which is exactly the type of proprioceptive input that’s generated from the Magic Weighted Blanket – releases serotonin in the brain. It’s worth noting that depression, anxiety, aggression, and PTSD all have a common link, and that’s basically low serotonin levels.

Once Zivalich had his main idea in focus, his wife, Lynda, then helped him to achieve his dream and goal by sewing many prototypes until they finally found the perfect design for his weighted blanket idea.

Shortly after, they started their small family business in Los Angeles, California, where they were able to find a factory that could make their new weighted blankets. And so, ever since they started their weighted blanket family business, they’ve been helping people to get a better night’s sleep, and that’s been going for over 24 years.

Now, while Zivalich’s original weighted blanked was truly ideal for better sleep while also providing anxiety relief and stress relief, his anxiety blanket wouldn’t truly explode until 2016. But once that happened, the weighted blanket finally became a viral trend all over the world.



Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the Magic Weighted Blanket and check out exactly what this therapeutic blanket has to offer you.
