What is the Science Behind Body Socks?
The science behind sensory body socks is called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote a guide to it here.
DTP releases serotonin in the body which turns into melatonin, as well as decreased nervous system activity. These combine to give a feeling of calm, relaxation and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to dive into the studies deep touch pressure and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.

Package arrived without any damage. The product looks nice. I bought it for my 12-year old brother who has mild level of autism. I think he will love the texture of it
Our sensory children are enjoying this immensely. We have added this to the list of strategies of 'things to do to help ourselves calm down'. My daughter likes the way the fabric feels; it doesn't seem to regulate her much. My son likes that he's tight and cozy. Now he started going to sleep in it, putting his blanket inside. He likes it better than his weighted blanket. Go figure!
I was SO excited to receive this body sock to take to school as a sensory item for our wellness room but I may keep it for myself! It truly does seem to melt away my anxiety when I am cozy inside of this body sock.The material is soft and breathable. The snaps are strong and easy to clip together on your own. It came in a wonderful carrying case that also included a user guide!I ordered a large and I feel like it fits my height and size perfectly (5’7 140 lbs).I think I’ll start using this after work on a pretty regular basis...barely joking.. I already know how great these work for kids that struggle with sensory processing and now I am convinced they’ll work for others with anxiety and stress.Totally proud of this find.
Excellent body sock. It really works for my ADHD child. It is really high quality with reinforced double stitched seams.
