“I want you to know how helpful your Weighted “Dream” Blanket has been for my son. He is 21 years old and has autism. He has used the Blanket for a month so far and he has had no aggressive incidents. I do not remember him going this length of time without any aggressive acts. This is the best he has ever been. Usually holidays overload him and he is more aggressive, but not this year. Thank you so much for your very helpful Weighted “Dream” Blanket. Feel free to use me as a very happy customer reference.”

Knots~B~Gone is a proactive tension reliever that works very similar to acupressure. By applying pressure to stressed or knotted muscles, the massaging motion stimulates the relax response – which immediate decreases stress hormone production, slows heart and breathing rate and increases levels of serotonin in the brain resulting in a positive physical and emotional response. Also helps offer proprioceptive input.
It’s easy to grasp fabric handles that enable you to place it exactly where it is needed and you can even tie it to your chair! Just roll it on your back, neck, hips or feet, and feel the “Knots~B~Gone”!
The Eye Pillow offers sensate pressure to relieve headaches, insomnia, and stress. They are designed to ensure relaxation and promote better physical and mental health.

“Dakota loves the soothing Eye Pillow you made for him. He asks for it whenever he is tired. We pull it out of the freezer and put it on his eyes. The one with the scent is the one he prefers when he is tired. When the kids are sick, we use the pack for their head. Thank you again.”
Here at Hug Patrol, we have gratitude for those who served, their family, friends and supporters.
If you or one of your loved ones has PTSD, the proprioceptive input received when using weight offers great relief with comfort and calming without being invasive.
“Hey Hug Patrol!
Thought I would drop a line to tell you about your weighted wraps/blankets. I am a retired USAF Sergeant and a Disabled American Veteran who uses a few of your products on an every day basis. I use the weighted heat wraps and the weighted blanket.
After receiving severe spinal injuries while in the service many years ago, every day activities and a good night’s sleep has been nearly impossible. Over the years I have had several surgeries involving the spine and rib cage. Surgery has helped a great deal but “Father Time” has not improved the situation. I have opted not to have any more surgeries and to search out ALTERNATIVE MEANS to restore the body’s natural process; “The body can heal itself, just give it the right tools!” You have created one of the tools. These would be your “Therapeutic wraps and weighted blankets”. I use your Neck and Shoulder wrap (dry heat and moist heat) and the weighted blanket every day.
For the Neck area I use the weighted wrap which conforms to the neck and shoulders. There are no other products which conform to the body’s natural shape; Yours will do that! Sometimes I just pop it in the microwave (dry; as is) for five minutes, throw it over the shoulders and neck and I am good to go for several hours. For the back and legs, while I sleep I use the weighted blanket. I am a back sleeper but it is difficult to stay in that position. When I am restless I often wind up on my side and then the party starts; pain, numbness and just a terrible night’s sleep. I then acquired you weighted blanket and started using that.
At first I used it over the legs (from the ankles to just over the hips). It was the first time in a long while I have been able to sleep on my back without awakening several times during the night. I then began playing around with the weights and now also use it on my chest and abdomen. There seems to be an almost immediate calming effect once the blanket is over you. So, here’s to a good night’s sleep for allot of other people, a great product for myself and especially my fellow veterans.
Thanks for a great product!”
– C A M, USAF Retired, Disabled American Veteran

For example: roll it on your neck, back, hips, feet, etc.
“I, like many people, have a “problem back”. From everyday aches and stiffness to occasional spasms, I am never completely free of some type of back discomfort. Recently I have been feeling an oncoming bout of severe spasms, starting with a mild tightness and building to a crescendo of intense pain. Usually when I feel this coming, there is no stopping it, I just have to take the pain and wait it out. At times in the past these spasms put me down for a couple of days. At the suggestion of a trusted friend, I tried your Knots~B~Gone. I couldn’t believe the relief I felt…instantly!
With the long handles, the Knots~B~Gone is easily maneuverable and I was able to place it exactly where I needed it to be and, much to my surprise and delight, my back loosened up immediately. This is no exaggeration. It was immediate. All I did was position the Knots~B~Gone between me and my chair in the spot that felt the tightest and then lean back, making sure that my back was arched over the Knots-Be-Gone. Now I use it daily. I even bring it to work with me so I can use it after my forty minute commute in my car. My work days start out so much better now and you are to thank for that. You couldn’t have come up with a more appropriate name for this product.”

Belly Ache? Try Heat.
Researchers have just figured out why applying a hot water bottle or heating pad to the abdomen soothes the pain of stomach aches, colic, cystitis and menstrual pain. A study from England’s University College, London, presented at the annual conference of the Physiological Society on July 5, 2006, shows that the warmth switches on heat receptors at the site of the pain. The receptors then inhibit the effect of chemical messengers that convey the signals that allow pain to be sensed by the body. The discovery shows that the relief we get by holding a heating pad or hot water bottle to an ache in the abdominal area isn’t a placebo effect – instead, it sets off measurable internal changes that help lessen the perception of pain. To work, the heat has to be over 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit, about five degrees higher than normal body temperature) and applied to the skin near where the pain is felt. Unfortunately, while the relief heat affords is real, it is only temporary. The discovery might help with efforts to develop drugs to block the same pain receptors that heat temporarily disables.
“This product is perfect for migraine relief. Sometimes during a migraine, I really need ice on a particular part of my head, neck, or face. Other ice packs are too hard and uncomfortable. The Hug Patrol “Wrap and Pack” has just the right amount of coolness and can be easily molded around whatever body part that hurts – neck, jaw, face, forehead, etc. The coolness last for a long time and the materials used are very comfortable. Often times, the coolness and pressure from the weight of the Wrap and Pack are just what I need to take the edge off the pain of a migraine. Thank you.”

How can I improve my memory?
Metabolic and heavy-metal wastes accumulate and create plaque buildups in the brain. This induces an inflammatory response, and the neurons can stop functioning properly or even die, resulting in potential memory loss. By massaging the bones at the back of the head, craniosacral therapy (CST) improves the flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid, which helps flush out toxins and revive memory. The older you are, the greater the chances you have accumulated metabolic waste in your brain tissue, and you will probably need more CST sessions. Lie on your back and carefully position the device so that the balls press on the back of your skull. Practice daily, for about 10 to 20 minutes while resting. It will take a while before you can restore all the fluid motion needed to flush out the brain tissues.

This Blanket is unlike others. The weight can be adjusted to compensate any body weight. This makes this Blanket very versatile.
I would recommend this Blanket for any trade where clients go for relaxation.”
