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 about weighted blankets and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.

Things happen! That’s why all of our products come with a lifetime guarantee including the body sock. Unless you are 100% satisfied, we aren’t satisfied either. We're a company that truly cares about you and will answer any questions or concerns you have.

Great sensory product. My son loves it and names it 'blue ghost'.
My students LOVE stepping into their body sock to stretch out, do yoga, deep breathing, walk around, use their imagination and have fun! I've been using it as a reward and it has been very motivating!
We just received this item and it is already completely ruined. My son was stretching and the seams came apart in several areas. Guess I will send it right back. Disappointed!
Purchased as a gift for my son and he absolutely loves it!
I bought this for my two nephews who have Autism. They both love it and know to ask for it when they feel sensory overloaded. Also, I truly appreciate the handbook as well!
