Newly Patented Product Provides Deep Pressure Touch Therapy

ROCKLIN, Calif., Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Can something so simple as the practice of applying gentle, constant pressure be a solution to anxiety, stress, insomnia and more? It is well known that swaddling helps babies to sleep more calmly at night—and now, studies are showing that similar principles work with adults struggling to get a good night's sleep.

Clinical tests into Deep Pressure Touch (DPT) stimulation have revealed that the practice of applying weight to our body helps relax the nervous system, providing comfort and relief. Occupational therapists have been utilizing deep pressure touch technique for over three decades, thanks to Dr. Temple Grandin, who pioneered the use of this technique.

The phenomenon of deep pressure touch is finding its way from the clinical setting to the mainstream marketplace in such products as the Thunder Shirt for dogs, The Magic Merlin Suit for babies and now the Nodpod for you and me.

About The Inventor

The Nodpod is the brainchild of Melissa Bamberg, inventor and mother of three.

The idea was birthed during a family road trip when late one night they pulled off the road to get some rest. Melissa wrapped her fuzzy sweatshirt around her pillow for comfort. She instinctively reached for the arm of her sweatshirt to block out light, and in that moment knew she had a good idea.

"I set out to create an incredibly easy to use light-blocking eye mask. It was during my prototyping phase when I discovered the science of deep pressure touch and everything changed. It has become my mission to spread the awareness of the power of deep pressure touch and how we can all benefit from it."
