HOW CAN WEIGHT HELP MY CHILD
Weight is a form of deep pressure neurological sensory input. It provides tactile and proprioceptive input to the body to help balance your child’s state of arousal. Deep pressure helps calm, focus, improve mood, etc. by increasing endorphin levels (happy hormones-such as dopamine and serotonin), while also slowing down involuntary functions related to stress and anxiety, such as heart rate and blood pressure, and decreasing the stress hormone cortisol. Deep pressure is a great and safe adjunct to your child’s therapy, not a replacement.
