The TRU blanket is the weighted blanket that is designed to comfort in this stressed out age. The gentle pressure of the heavy blanket is similar to getting a full body massage. The weight of the blanket represents 10% of my body weight. It gives me a reduced feeling of anxiety and has helped me to sleep better at night. Since using the TRU blanket I have started to sleep deeper and wake up feeling more relaxed than ever.

The TRU Blanket is made from 100% cotton. The dotted sensory touch on one side of the blanket and there is plush minky on the other side of the blanket that has beautiful embroidery and just the right weight. The Tru Blanket is filled with glass beads that are sewn in to the blanket to give it an even weight. The fabric is made from 400 count thread making it smooth and breathable so that my body is always the perfect temperature. The Minky cover zips on and off so that it can be washed or removed for cooler months.

The TRU Blanket uses Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation that helps just like a massage to help me relax. The weight of the blanket gives me a feeling of peacefulness as though I am safe. It helps me to find relief from all of the anxiety that I am feeling by providing me with something that makes me feel grounded. The Tru Blanket can be used not only by those who have anxiety but also those who deal with PTSD, OCD, ADHD, autism or stress. The blanket is soft and comforting.

The blanket is 60X80 so it is easy for me to share and cuddle up on the couch. It weighs 15 lbs and comes in a calming grey color.  My TRU Blanket can be used for yoga, on the car on long trips, on vacation, in the playroom to calm my children, or after a hard workout to ease sore muscles.
