For adults and kids alike, squeezing and squishing action can help distract them from a somewhat difficult, anxious or overwhelming situation. Kids with sensory issues can benefit from using a stress ball to redirect their focus so that there are fewer meltdowns.
There are many benefits to squeezing and squishing. These actions help you utilize the muscles that are connected to nerves that head up to the brain in the limbic region which is your emotional area of the brain. This works much like acupressure where the stimulation works to help another area of your body.
Engage the senses with squeezable, stress relieving, tension and pressure relief tools.
