Benefits Of Weighted Blankets
Research and peer-reviewed studies have shown weighted blankets are an all-natural and effective way to reduce a wide range of ailments while improving sleep quality.
Studies about Weighted Blankets
Exploring the Safety and Therapeutic Effects of Deep Pressure Stimulation Using a Weighted Blanket
Data obtained on effectiveness of blanket reported the following:
lowering in EDA
preferred blanket as a calming modality
The results of this study will be used to form the basis for subsequent research on the therapeutic influence of the weighted blanket with adults during an acute inpatient mental health admission.
Over 60% reported decreased levels of anxiety
Induces deeper sleep and REM cycles
80% reported weighted blanket made them feel calmer
Reduces insomnia and improve sleep quality
Reduces stress, anxiety, and several other clinical disorders
Weighted blankets work through a well documented treatment called deep touch pressure stimulation.
This is a therapeutic method that actually changes the way the nervous system works.
Weighted blankets cause your nervous system to switch to “relax and regenerate” mode for your mind and body.
What Makes Aurora Different
Ultra-Premium Hand-Picked Fabrics
Aurora is not just an average blanket with weighted beads added (like most of the weighted blankets out there). To have a truly good night’s sleep, you need comfort from precise weight distribution, premium fabrics, hand-spun plush filling, and temperature control.
The combination of glass beads, copper-infused material and velvet creates the perfect combination for a good night’s sleep.
Self-Cleaning and Antibacterial Through the Power of Copper
Studies have shown that copper-infused textiles such as Aurora help to cure infection and eliminate bacteria spread.

Aurora is the only weighted blanket to infuse copper's scientifically proven antibacterial and antifungal properties.
How does it work?
Copper ions on the surface are recognized as an essential nutrient, and enter the cell.
A lethal dose of copper ions interferes with normal cell functions and membrane integrity. Copper ions impede cell respiration and metabolism, destroying the cell from the inside-out.
Copper has been used for centuries for its natural antimicrobial properties. Copper is resistant to bacteria, mold, viruses, mites, fungus, allergens and other icky things you can’t see without a microscope.
At Aurora, we believe in promoting a healthy planet as well as a healthy body and mind. Our micro-crystal glass beads are not only environmentally-friendly, but they are also smoother and temperature-neutral, giving Aurora a more uniform weight and better breathability than other weighted blankets.
Aurora only uses glass beads to ensure a more temperature neutral, breathable, and evenly distributed experience.
Aurora taps into your deepest potential to relax and unwind by utilizing deep touch pressure stimulation. If you’ve ever felt a burst of happiness when burrowing under your covers on a cold night, you know what it feels like.
This therapeutic technique actually changes your body chemistry, causing your body to relax completely.
Levels of anxiety are at an all-time high. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, over 40 million Americans suffer from anxiety, making it the most widespread mental disorder in the country. Studies have revealed that using weighted blankets like Aurora can significantly decrease levels of stress and anxiety.
Anxiety and Depression Association of America
- Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year.
- Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.
- People with an anxiety disorder are 3x - 5x more likely to go to the doctor and 6x to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders.
- Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.
Increase Energy Levels
Optimize your body's chemistry using the power of deep touch stimulation.
Cortisol is the human body’s “stress hormone” High levels of cortisol are linked to:
- weight gain,
- high blood pressure,
- poor sleep cycles,
- reduced energy levels,
- and diabetes.
Studies have linked the use of weighted blankets to decreased cortisol levels.
Serotonin is the main chemical that regulates mood, sleep, and learning. Higher levels of serotonin can lead to improved sleep and memory retention during your sleeping phase.
Increased Serotonin levels stimulates increased melatonin levels - the body’s natural “sleep” chemical (also the main active ingredient in many sleeping pills) that will keep you in a restful and deep sleep.
The Rest You Deserve
There’s no worse feeling then hopping into bed after a long day only to toss and turn all night. Aurora’s calibrated weight distribution cradles the body to decrease movement at night, allowing you to enjoy longer periods of deep sleep.
Aurora minimizes body movements to allow the body to enter and stay in deeper sleep.
In studies, nearly everyone who used a weighted blanket reported feeling more rested upon waking up in the morning. The sleep you get with Aurora is unlike any you’ve had before. You won’t believe the difference that quality rest can make in your life, day and night.
Aurora’s use of breathable and thermoregulatory materials prevent you from overheating beneath the weighted blanket. When you are feeling hot, Aurora’s moisture-wicking micro-pores will allow perspiration from your skin to travel outside of the fabric so that it can evaporate, leaving you cool and refreshed.
Aurora's breathable and thermoregulatory materials let you use the Aurora year-round!
Hit the Sheets Clean
The best sleep of your life is complemented by real copper fibers woven into the fabric of Aurora. Copper is a powerful element that has natural antimicrobial properties that can keep your sheets and body clean and safe.
Aurora's copper infused weave eliminates harmful microbes and rejuvenates your skin. Say goodbye to bacteria, and hello to clear, smooth skin.
Do You Know Who Lives In Your Bed?
in your Bed
Sleeping on millions of bacteria every night might make you feel a bit squirmy. With the number of germs we trek into our homes daily, it seems we are doomed to share our beds with more than a few of them. Some, like bacilli and gram-positive cocci, can be the source of a nasty sickness. Others, such as gram-positive rods, are rarer and therefore less likely to affect us. But we do want to keep it all in check as much as we can.
Copper in Aurora will protect you from bacteria and viruses that cause asthma, acne, eczema, and other illnesses
The effects of Aurora’s premium copper fibers won’t wash out or fade away. Ever. Keep your bed clean for years to come.
Never worry about sneezes or sensitive noses - Aurora is 100% hypoallergenic!
