We are in need of solutions that soothe painful joints or muscles. Leg Cramps Rheumatoid Arthritis. Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis can be difficult sometimes you need help stretching with deep tissue tools and finding relief while sleeping with the Mosaic weighted blanket.
I am seeing a ton of rave reviews regarding these Mosaic blankets. I needed to dig deeper and I found out that Mosaics are designed to be 8-12% of your body weight. We are referring to the type of low-tech sensory hacks that give calm to arthritis, anxiety, and also those that experience PTSD. The idea is to give the feeling of being held or hugged to you. So all of the warm and fuzzy feelings you get from this type of sensory input is replicated through an evenly distributed weighted blanket. The majority of the times you experience cramping or pain in the joints or muscle it’s because you’re not able to relax or stretch that muscle or joint.
This blanket, gives the experience of being hugged tight, which is as soothing regardless of your age.
Anyone who has experienced this type of distress and sought relief understands how frustrating it can be.
So at about $150 for the blanket that can last years and help alleviate pain and allow me to sleep it’s a no brainer.
But not all are created equally and only a few are designed for breathability. Like any great idea, tons of brands pop up to provide products that are inferior for a great idea.
Fortunately Mosaic is based here in Austin, TX and they manufacture here as well. I have been seeing a few negative reviews based on the products. The Mosaic blanket seems to be among the most relevant early adapter to the trend and we absolutely love the quality and variety they offer.
I recently went to Minnesota to get a wedding and the 30 degree weather made me wish I had my Mosaic blanket with me. Might have weighed down my carry-on a bit too much on second thought.
I’ve been using mine with my Muse headband and the Gaiam roller. I’ll tell you that stretching out my problem areas has been a huge benefit.
