So anyone who has had a baby understands how important it is to that newborn to be swaddled; wrapped tightly in a blanket the act of swaddling a baby reminds of the warmth and safety they experienced in the womb and helps to promote a sense of safety, security and peace..
But did you know that in Japan they practice a form of Adult Swaddling called Otonomaki (literally: adult wrapping) and believers in the practice say that it promotes relaxation as well as soothing tense muscles and sore joints although the medical community is not convinced there are any benefits to the practice.
The only catch? In Otonomaki the subject is COMPLETELY wrapped including their head.
Do you think you would try this, or would it be too terrifying?
