What is Self-regulation?
Self Regulation is the experience of harmonising the body’s internal communication system and sending signals of safety through the nervous system. Due to stress, lifestyle and trauma, our bodies often exist in a state of Survival Physiology. Ultimately, there is a feeling of “I am not safe” within the body.
In a healthy system, once the external stressor is removed, the feeling of “I am not safe” passes and the body returns to a regulated state of “I am safe.” When the nervous system is regulated, it sends signals to and from the brain letting the body know it is safe.
Sometimes, our bodies need help to regulate and recognise that there is no threat at play. To support a return to internal safety and self-regulation, we created the ReCover weighted Blanket!
Our blankets are filled with tiny glass beads that evenly distribute gentle weight over your body while you rest.
Ultra-safe & plush
All our materials are hypoallergenic, non-toxic and stitched into 7 layers of padding to ensure a safe and comfortable experience. The outer layer is high quality cotton and safe for sensitive skin.
Cool-safe technology is used so that the body does not get too hot while using the blanket and can be used all year round.
Longer length allows you to tuck the blanket under your feet, to enhance the cocoon experience.
“With this blanket, you can help yourself to feel safe.”
How does it work?
The ReCover blanket can be found at Soma Clinic, an integrated health clinic working predominantly with different health conditions, including anxiety and insomnia related to stress or deeper mental health issues.
Dr. Mark Chern had specific frameworks in mind for creating the ReCover blanket.
Using natural and breathable material to ensure that the blanket can be used across all seasons, the blanket is designed with trauma-safe parameters in mind, as well as elongating the length of the blanket to allow for a whole-body cocoon experience.
The ReCover blanket is available at Soma Clinic. Its main function is to regulate your nervous system in the most comfortable and luxurious manner.
When using it, you would take less time to slip into a state of deep rest. The reason is because the ReCover blanket reminds the body that it is safe and protected, that all is well.
“You can receive acupuncture or other forms of bodywork at our clinic, and that can help calm down your nervous system. But isn’t it better to have the ReCover Blanket with you at home, at your disposable, any time you feel like it? The fact that patients can use the ReCover blanket outside the clinic environment is wonderful and empowers a shift towards self-care, which is the ultimate health-care.” – Dr Mark Chern
