Although used widely to help people with ADHD, Autism, OCD and Anxiety related conditions, these weighted blankets can also be used for anyone suffering from anxiety due to simply being in the dentists chair.

A study in The Journal of Medical and Biological Engineering in 2012, looked at how patients nervous systems reacted when having DTP (deep touch pressure) through the use of a weighted blanket. The subject's nervous systems were measured. and the findings gave  positive results “this study provides physiological evidence to support the positive clinical effects of DTP (deep touch pressure) for reducing anxiety in dental environments.

A study from Occupational Therapy in Mental Health in 2008 found that when a weighted blanket was used with patients, the majority of them reported lower anxiety.

The "hugging" effect is a type of sensory calming called proprioceptive input, which is pressure on the muscles and joints. Proprioceptive input sends signals to the brain that cause serotonin to be released, which is the neurotransmitter in the brain that makes people feel happy. An increase in serotonin causes natural melatonin to be released in the brain giving an even more a feeling of calm.
