Does your kiddo have meltdowns, anger and mean streaks, difficulty transitioning? Compulsion, self-harming, trouble focusing, or just tons of energy?
Energy Release Freedom Hammockis the perfect refuge for anybody from children to adults! It is often used in child therapy with the ability to calm down and quiet overwhelmed tots on the verge of a tantrum.
For years, occupational therapists have been using Energy Release Freedom Hammock as a way to teach the body and mind to work together. They provide vestibular and proprioceptive input, which stimulates your child’s senses.
Children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) have a hard time filtering and organizing sensory input. This overflow of information puts stress on the nervous system, causing sensory meltdowns. Sensory input, like cuddling and swinging, calms the body’s “fight or flight” response. These swings make your child feel safe, soothing their overly stimulated senses.
The vestibular system is the most important of the body’s senses. It lets us know if we’re moving, how fast we’re moving, and in which direction we’re headed. A developed vestibular system allows us to navigate our environment with confidence. This is because our brain knows exactly where the body is in relation to other objects.
It helps increases balance and coordination. When children have trouble processing vestibular input, their body doesn’t know how to move within their environment.
As your child sits in their sensory swing, they gain confidence that their body is safe— even when their feet are off the ground. The stronger these associations become, the more their balance improves.
The swinging motion and Deep Pressure Therapy have an organizing effect on the brain. This gives them some much-needed relief from an overwhelmed nervous system. So what is the benefit? Sensory swings make children with autism feel more “in balance.” Because of this, many parents find that swinging before or during homework increases concentration.
From increasing attention span to improving coordination, the benefits of Energy Release Freedom Hammock are endless.
