The Sensory Spa
A state-of-the-art sensory room that incorporates sensory processing techniques to help support nervous system regulation.
What is Sensory Processing?
Sensory processing is how the brain perceives, processes, and responds to sensory information from the outside world and inside our bodies.
We have lots of ways we take in sensory information – through our eyes, ears, nose, skin and other sensory organs. This information is essential to how we navigate the world. We rely on it for all the things we want and need to do.
We all have unique preferences for what kind and how much sensory information we can take in and process at a time. People with mental health conditions like anxiety, eating disorders, or an influential trauma history have been found to process sensory information in unique ways. Some people may be easily overwhelmed by sensory stimuli, and have a hard time regulating their nervous system in response. Other people may be avoiding, missing out on sensory cues, or not getting enough sensory stimuli to meet their preferences, which can also lead to dysregulation and a hard time coping with daily challenges.
How can I benefit from sensory-informed therapy?
Therapy that integrates sensory processing techniques can help people use sensory strategies to support nervous system regulation.
Many people find that by integrating sensory tools within their daily experience, as guided by a sensory-informed therapist, they are better able to respond to cues from inside their body and incoming sensory cues.
The Sensory Spa
Sensory Rooms are therapeutic environments with sensory tools to modify nervous system arousal in each sensory system. Sensory rooms provide sensory opportunities in a structured environment, which can be graded to the needs of the client and translated to daily activities.
The Sensory Spa at the Mind Body Healing Collective creates a unique opportunity for you to select the lighting, colors, sounds, textures, taste and more according to your sensory preferences to support regulation and wellbeing.
