How do weighted blankets work? 

The science behind it is more speculative than cold hard facts - but the thinking behind why weighted blankets work makes sense to us.

Weighted blankets's effectiveness is due to a therapy tool originally pioneered by autism researcher, Temple Grandin, which highlights how pressure stimulation, similar to that of a hug or comforting hand on the shoulder, can release feel-good hormones like serotonin.
