Relaxing and grounding
I bought this robe as a Christmas gift for my 15 year old son who is on the Autistic Spectrum because he likes weighted blankets. He likes it enough to put on after school every day when he gets home. He let me wear it after a particularly tense day hunched over my laptop at work. All the shoulder, neck and back tension was relieved along with my headache.
The only tricky thing is washing something this heavy. I consider the benefits worth the effort.
