Mosaic Weighted Blankets are a non-drug therapy used by nursing homes, hospitals and caregivers to help calm agitated patients. The concept behind weighted blankets is simple, yet effective. The blankets put a slight pressure on the body, which causes the release of serotonin—the “happy, feel-good hormone” in the brain. After an increase in serotonin, melatonin is released, which provides a calming effect. Mosaic Weighted Blankets are custom designed in a variety of colors, patterns and sizes.
