Multi-Sensory World believes that targeting specific senses with your choice of products will allow you to direct the benefits towards a sensory experience you are aiming to achieve. Whilst the common five senses (sight, taste, touch, hearing and smell) are fundamental, we have included an additional two senses which are critical to the development of adults and children: balance and movement.
Touch also known as tactile perception
Touch is formed from several modalities including pressure, skin stretch, vibration and temperature. By using tactile products the brain is stimulated through touch and helps block out sensory overloads from the outside world. Promoting relaxation, improved concentration and communication.
