For many years Occupational Therapists and Psychotherapists alike have encouraged individuals to acquire weighted blankets to ease symptoms of anxiety, autism, difficulty sleeping among other ailments. Regulating the nervous system is a difficult task and requires a mind/body approach with practice techniques offered by professionals well versed in the field.
These blankets stand above others available due to the fact that they are made with glass beads rather than rice or materials that trigger scent and thus somatic reaction. Many of those seeking my service have discovered the multitude of benefits by employing weighted blankets to their everyday use. In my practice I use a small blanket, sold by Danyi, to assist individuals in achieving regulation whilst receiving psychotherapy services.
In closing, I not only recommend this product but its distributor whom has a pleasant disposition and a willingness to be of assistance to the best of her ability.

I had been interested in trying a weighted blanket for a while because it’s of its scientifically-proven benefits on sleep.
So for the past few days I’ve been using a weighted blanket from Linens and More by Danyi, a local Regina company. My weighted blanket is 15 pounds and it’s been amazing for improving my sleep.
It works through a technique called deep touch pressure therapy that has been shown to activate neurotransmitters in the brain that promote relaxation and well-being.
Some of the research literature has suggested that weighted blankets can help to combat stress, alleviate restless legs, help with attention and focus, improve sleep.
And, in this time of social distancing, it acts by recreating a physical hug! How timely!

I am a senior citizen who has had problems with sleeping since I was a child. Since I purchased a weighted blanket from danyi.ca, my quality of sleep has improved dramatically resulting in improvements to my quality of life.
I find it most helpful when I wake up in the middle of the night or early morning. The comforting weight lets me go back to sleep comfortably, soundly and quickly.
I use fewer blankets, especially during the winter months, the glass beads inside the blanket absorb body warmth creating more comfort.
I have since purchased this blanket in a different weight for a friend who has been very pleased with the positive results. The different sizes and weights fit a variety of uses and settings from seniors to children whether sitting or resting in a chair, the couch or the bedroom. Pets would even love the smaller sizes as they curl up.
Getting to sleep was never easy for me, even with the use of melatonin, I couldn't just lay down and fall asleep. I would be laying in bed, waiting for the melatonin to kick in, while the rest of my household was fast asleep. When I was gifted a weighted blanket from Linens and More by Danyi, I decided to give it my all on my first night.
I skipped the melatonin, laid down in bed and draped the blanket over myself. The next thing I knew, I was waking up before my alarm had a chance to go off! I've slept with my weighted blanket every night since. I have more energy throughout the day, since the melatonin always made me groggy.
My four-year-old has also tried a weighted blanket while watching tv and expressed how much she enjoys it.
Danyi makes sure that she's selling the best quality products because her customers having great experiences with her products means the world to her. I highly recommend a weighted blanket from Danyi, if you're interested in trying one - you won't be disappointed!
