The Brush Wilbarger Therapy is designed by Patricia Wilbarger and is a fantastic tool in the treatment of sensory defensiveness. Featuring an easy to grip oval shape and high density bristles, the Therapressure brush is an highly effective calming tool.
Brushing therapy is often a part of a sensory integration or sensory therapy program. It involves brushing the body with a small surgical brush throughout the day. People who exhibit symptoms of tactile defensiveness are extremely sensitive to touch. They often fear or resist being touched, have difficulty transitioning between activities, and may be lethargic.
It usually takes 2-3 minutes to administer. The first step involves using a soft, plastic, sensory brush to run over the child’s skin, using very firm pressure; it is like a deep pressure massage. Brushing starts at the arms and works down to the feet. The face, chest, and stomach area are never brushed because these are very sensitive areas. Brushing these areas may cause adverse reactions including vomiting.
