Did you know that when people hug, the body releases oxytocin, lowering heart rates and cortisol levels? Knowing this, Cheryl's Home & Family set out to create the next best thing to a real hug. The Huggler is a soft weighted blanket designed to bring you to a natural state of calm. Using uniquely designed elements to imitate Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation (DTPS), scientifically proven to promote REM sleep, boost serotonin, relax the nervous system, reduce stress hormones and improve overall mood. When selecting a blanket, choose the one that is approximately 10% of your body weight for the ideal experience.
