Overwhelming Events


When a child goes through an overwhelming experience, the trauma can linger—sending young nervous systems into overdrive. Even if there’s been no apparent incident, children struggling with inexplicable tantrums, fear, or lack of focus might be dealing with unexpressed issues.

Without the appropriate language, children tend to suffer in silence—leading to long-term cognitive, emotional, and social issues. For children with mental and physical special needs, trauma is often deeply entwined with their condition, leading to a damaging cycle of trauma and symptoms.

Feldenkrais® offers a safe space for healing. Gentle and comforting, Feldenkrais® helps kids lower their natural defense mechanisms, and become increasingly present, all without having to say a word. Children develop awareness, calm their fight or flight responses, and develop enduring security.

Sensory Nexus can help your child recover from overwhelming experiences in the following ways:

• Private Sessions for your child
• Tools for Parents to assist your own child
