Sensory Brush

This type of Sensory Brush can be easily used  for children who has hypo or hypertonia. This sensory brush will help your child to calm in case of hyperactivity, or to be more active in the case of hyporeactivity. This sensory tool can be used as well for reduce or increase the sensitivity of the tone.

The Sensory brush is well known as part of the Wilbarger Protocol (also referred to as brushing therapy).

What is the Brushing therapy?

The wilbarger brush is often a part of a sensory integration or sensory therapy program run by an occupational therapist. It involves brushing the body with a small sensory brush throughout the day.

People who exhibit symptoms of tactile defensiveness are extremely sensitive to touch. They often fear or resist being touched, have difficulty transitioning between activities, and may be lethargic. 

The complete protocol usually takes 2-3 minutes to administer. The first step involves using a soft, plastic, sensory brush which is run over the child’s skin, using very firm pressure; it is like a deep pressure massage.

Important: Brushing starts at the arms and works down to the feet. The face, chest, and stomach area are never brushed because these are very sensitive areas. 

In our experience: Some of the benefits may include improved ability to transition between daily activities, improved attention span, a decreased fear or discomfort of being touched, enhanced coordination, and better self-regulation.
