Why swinging is great therapy for sensory integration
Swinging is great for stimulating the vestibular receptors which can helpful for children who are "sluggish" and need vestibular input (ie a sense of movement) to get them going. To quote Lindsey Biel, author of Raising a Sensory Smart Child; "Spinning, swinging and hanging upside down provide the most intense, longest lasting input."
Gentle swinging in a hammock or net swing is a good calming activity for sensory seekers.
We have a range of Indoor Swings available from trapeze bars to net swings and even spinning platform swings! Easy to set up and fantastic quality these swings will provide years of safe swinging.
Always consult a qualified Occupational Therapist when devising a sensory diet for your child.
