We are in need of solutions that soothe joints or muscles. Rheumatoid Arthritis Brain. Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis can be difficult sometimes you need assistance stretching with deep tissue tools and finding relief when 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 specially designed to be 8-12% of your body weight. We are referring to the sort of low-tech sensory hacks that give calm to arthritis, anxiety, and also those that experience PTSD. The idea is to give you the feeling of being held or hugged. So all the warm and fuzzy feelings you get from this sort of sensory input is replicated through an evenly distributed blanket. Most of the times you experience pain or numbness in the joints or muscle it is because you’re not able to relax or stretch that joint or muscle.
This blanket, gives the experience of being hugged tight, which is as soothing no matter your age.
Anyone who has experienced this sort of discomfort and sought relief knows how frustrating it can be.
So at about $150 for the blanket that can last years and help relieve pain and help me sleep it’s a no brainer.
But beware, not all are created equally and just a few are designed for breathability. Like any great idea, tons of brands pop up to offer products .
Luckily Mosaic is based here in Austin, TX and they fabricate here as well. I’ve been visiting a few reviews based on the products. The Mosaic blanket seems to be one of 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 little too much on second thought.
I’ve been using mine with my Muse headband and the Gaiam roller. I’ll tell you stretching my problem areas out has been a huge benefit.
