A new softer brush approved by Patricia Wilbarger, delivering deep pressure without any scratch, tickle or itch.
The Therapressure brush is the sensory brush designed by Patricia Wilbarger. This oval shaped brush is easier to use than regular sensory brushes in that it comes with an attached handle and has a more ergonomic design that makes it fit comfortable in your hand. According to Patricia Wilbarger, “the high density of the bristles makes it an ideal brush for the body.” For specific instructions on brushing therapy its best to speak with an occupational therapist or therapist trained in the Wilbarger Protocol. The Therapressure brush is the preferred brush for the Wilbarger protocol and is available in white only.
The Wilbarger Protocol is a therapy program designed to reduce sensory or tactile defensiveness. Children 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. This therapy was developed by Patricia Wilbarger, MEd, OTR, FAOTA.
Caution!... Don't be taken by cheap imitations - this is the ONLY Therapressure Brush approved for the Wilbarger Brushing Protocol.
