The Weighted Sensory Worm applies deep pressure stimulation and help increase calmness and decrease the feelings of anxiety.
Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS) is firm but gentle squeezing, hugs, or holding that relaxes the nervous system. This pressure can be applied with the hands, special massage tools, or products that your child can wear or wrap around themselves to provide pressure.
This therapy can trigger a chain reaction in the body that releases an overall sense of calm and peace.
