Why does Compression and Shapewear make you FEEL GOOD?

From the dawn of time we have been WRAPPING ourselves in comfort.

Example:  you’re curled up on the couch, perusing the internet or watching Netflix, thinking somethings missing, like the cozy warmth that you oh-so-long for. Then you grab a blanket and tuck-in … and there! There’s the warmth and coziness that was missing. Now, it almost feels like being in your mother’s warm embrace!

No wonder adult wrapping is the new craze in town! After all, who doesn’t want to throw it back to their happy childhood, aka; Baby Bliss, every now and then? So, this Bliss (the feeling of comfort and safety) is what we are achieving with compression wear?  Yes, it is and its Scientific! Read on! 


Baby Wrapping Shapewear

Swaddling a baby makes them calm and comfortable because it provides them with a soft pressure around their whole body.  In recent studies, Occupational Therapists’ reported the use of sensory and adaptive approaches, such as wearing a pressure garment, increases attention and promotes adaptive behaviors in children with ADHD.  Research shows that 'Deep touch pressure' produces a calming effect on children with psychiatric disorders, giving way to compression clothing being used for kids with Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD), Autism and Rett syndrome as a therapeutic garment.  Compression wear, therefore is now a known choice to control anxiety and aid kids with special needs to focus and learn better.

Even Weighted Blankets are proven to be a healthy way to sleep better... so whats this all about? Weight, pressure, hugs.. bring it on baby!!

WRAP YOUR ADULT SELF: The latest lunchtime crazy sweeping the nation is adults wrapping themselves up in a breathable cloth for a total rejuvenation therapy. This treatment known as Otona Maki, or adult wrapping, was invented by Japanese midwife Nobuko Watanabe. The technique is said to 'reset' the body to its youthful flexibility. A quick session, wrapped in the fetal position and rocked to baby bliss, for 20 minutes is said to improve one’s flexibility and posture, alleviate aches and pains and remarkably reduce stress.

In animals, the tickle of a fly landing on the skin may cause a cow to kick, but the firm touch of the farmer's hands quiets her. An innovative new compression suit is now available for race horses, commonly known to be high-strung and injury prone animals.  Similar to athletes the use of graduated compression stockings, tights and socks, these four-legged athletes benefit from the compression as well.  Especially if a horse is susceptible to soft tissue injuries, muscle tears and high strung, this suit aids a horse who is standing in a horse box for hours en route to a show or race, optimizing the horse’s blood circulation, and calming their demeanor. Protecting against more injury, sore muscles and shortening recovery time, very much like compression garments for athletes.

Anxiety compression wraps for stressed out, or high strung, dogs are also available. These coat like canine wraps distribute pressure around the back and sides of a dog’s chest, serving as a calming “hug”. Scientifically, gentle pressure releases chemicals called endorphins that promote a sense of well-being. That’s why stroking a dog firmly and slowly calms him down while a quick pat on the head gets them all revved up.

Athletes wear compression clothing to help their bodies deal with blood flow and muscle recovery from over activity. Acting like another layer of tissue, or as a muscle pump, the compression garment aids in moving fluid and waste from the area of muscle strain. You've likely seen travelers wearing high compression socks or calf sleeves, because compression increases blood flow. In fact, doctors have been using it for years in patients with poor leg circulation and varicose veins. The tight socks help blood vessels to constrict and return the blood up toward the heart instead of that blood pooling in the legs, alleviating swelling and increasing blood flow to the muscles and organs in the rest of the body.
