“Hi Moms, I promised to share this link today so here it is: I suffer from PTSD and severe anxiety and I’ve been searching for alternative ways to help me when I’m “under attack”, so I decided to give this avenue a try, as my meds alone were not helping me. This blanket was custom-made for me and I’d just like to say that when I’m underneath it, it feels like I’m wrapped safe in a cocoon. I am very happy customer and would like to testify that this blanket helps me tremendously!”
This client wanted a weighted blanket for her son. The occupational therapist suggested that she use a weighted blanket to help her son with sleep issues – he used to wake up several times a night. When first introduced to his weighted blanket, was a little unsure, but every night his Mom checked that the weighted blanket was covering his body. After the first night, she reported significant improvement in sleep pattern – he had uninterrupted sleep and even slept later the next morning, Now after several months after using the weighted blanket every night, he is experiencing far better sleep and awakes rested.

A concerned mom bought a weighted blanket for her daughter aged 10 who was experiencing night terrors. She would get up every night and come into her parents’ bedroom because she couldn’t get back to sleep. After the first night of sleeping under the blanket, she slept right through till the next morning and said to her Mom: “This weighted blanket is amazing! When I woke up during the night, I just pulled my weighted blanket up and felt so safe and calm, I am so happy that I could sleep through the night!”
An OT recommended UnderWraps products for a 10-year-old patient who suffers with sensory integration disorder and needs weights for calming. Here’s what the OT or the parent said after receiving the product: “Wow, what a difference weighted therapy makes, a really effective product. I love the personal touch and care that is put into the making. The fact that the product is washable is a major plus!”
We made a lap pad for a friend’s mom who suffers from restless leg syndrome. She uses it while sitting and reading, and when in bed. She says: “I love it! It makes me calmer and has eased some of the restlessness”.
Initially my shoulder wrap felt a bit weird – heavy and uncomfortable – but I am tactile defensive, so it is possible that my muscles were reacting to the ‘different feeling’ in my shoulders. Now, after having work it on and off, half-an-hour at time, my body has adjusted to the weight and I feel more grounded and centred. I used to feel as though my upper body was ‘floating’ as if disconnected from the rest of my body, but this sensation is completely gone. Even better still: my shoulders and neck are not as stiff and sore as previously, because the shoulder wrap stops me from hunching my shoulders. I’ve also used the shoulder wrap as a lap pad which also works wonderfully well. Thank you for the love and detail that went into creating my wrap, it’s truly made an enormous difference.”
“I gave my mother-in-law my shoulder wrap to try and she was amazed at its benefits. Thanks to the added weight and its soothing properties, she breathed more regularly and deeply and felt so much calmer.”
She got a lap pad from her sister, but her feedback after using the products is “being away from home for 7 weeks to complete gutting and renovating my home and had major insomnia. Sitting with a lap blanket as been nothing short of a miracle in soothing me”
