‘Her sleeping problems decreased, her concentration got better and her headaches fully vanished’
‘She didn’t need as much physiotherapy for her muscle tension anymore’
I helped a girl with neurofibromatosis. This condition makes for a lot of sensory processing difficulties. She borrowed a vest of mine for half a year. Her sleeping problems decreased, her concentration got better and her headaches fully vanished. Her posture became better, her shoulders weren’t as tense anymore and she could feel her body better. She even didn’t need as much physiotherapy for her muscle tension anymore.
‘Sometimes behaviour changes astonishingly’
We shared these results with her health insurance to prove that a pressure vest can help people so much. Sadly, her health insurance wouldn’t cover the costs. I often lend out vests to see if it helps children. Sometimes their behaviour changes astonishingly. Children can participate in stressful situations such as PE in school or during dinner. Children also get a better sense of their body.
