Body Awareness

With body awareness or proprioceptive issues, some feel lost in space or unable to judge where they are in relation to others or objects. As it would with anyone, this loss of control produces anxiety and stress and may lead to behavior that is considered socially inappropriate. Pushing, shoving, hitting, rocking can all be the result of a proprioceptive sensory system that is not receiving the correct input to muscles and joints. In order to relieve someone with these feelings, we must find the appropriate solution. Feel the weighted blanket touch all parts of your body. Which part does it feel better on? Immerse yourself in a ball pool and feel like you are swimming. Push your way through a Squeeze Machine that gives you just the right amount of pressure. Challenging your proprioceptive system will bring you a greater sense of relief once this sense is satisfied.
