Tactile Sense

Our Tactile Sense (or sense of touch) is stimulated by the chains of the chain blanket, first by the sensation on the skin from the chains through the fabric and secondly by deeper pressure. This helps to give a more secure feeling and better awareness of and connection to our own body. If you press the chains against the body then the brain will still be receiving stimulation from this message for a further 20 minutes. This is long enough for the brain to focus on the body instead of all the surroundings and so enables the user to fall asleep.
