Reducing Tight Muscles, Increasing Sensory Use


Description of the Hack

This is a mat that is designed to be extremely versatile. It was imported from Germany, and is a large rubber mat with thick bumps that can be used for massage purposes, or for sensory. We cut it into pieces and use them all over the house. We mostly use it to massage the bottom of her feet.

About the Solution Hacker

Our daughter has very tight muscles, our physio recommended touch and massage to help loosen her. We found that she likes the feeling of the mat, and sometimes just runs her hands over it because she likes to massage her hands. We have these all over the house, as well as one at her school as well.
