New Urge Surfing Kits have landed
We're so glad you found us!
Do you want staff to know a little more about neurodiversity? Want to ask the tricky questions?
Want to play with sensory the whole time and enjoy an unscripted, adaptive conversation about more than sensory tools?
Deep touch pressure is what we experience when we use weighted or compression items.
Deep Pressure can be explained several ways.
The simple explanation is - It feels like a firm hug that relaxes your whole body, without the annoying person.
Need a little more than that?
While the scientific community like to go back and forth on the efficacy levels of deep pressure, and likely will for the next decade.
Anecdotally, so many who are neurodivergent or who suffer anxiety experience massive relief from these products. Discovering your preferred deep pressure tools can be a life changing experience .
When firm but comfortable pressure is applied to the body it forces a shift from your sympathetic nervous system SNS to your para sympathetic nervous system. PSNS
This is how we turn off the anxiety (The fight, flight, fawn, flee) response.
By helping the body move into the PSNS, where it is relaxed, produces endorphins, is no longer on alert for danger. We can relieve anxiety suffering or sensory overload and prolonged stress. This is the state where the brain produces serotonin & dopamine, the two feelgood neurotransmitters that some of us really struggle to absorb.
Need Even more?
Weighted Blankets - the rule of thumb is a weighted blanket should be between 8% - 15% of the users body weight.
Too much can be restrictive , to little may not have the desired therapeutic effect.
For smaller area items - lap pads & animals you'll need less weight.
