I use my massage rollers every day, several times - as soon as I come home, have a glass of water its the first thing I do to calm down from being out. I love it - and its not a specifically a sensory tool - nor are several things I use so I was just wondering what other people use as sensory tools. My massage roller looks like this, which I use on my under back on the ground, its so calming: I have another that looks like this, which I use less often: and this one I use on the bottom of my feet: I use to also use a rebounder (mini trampoline) but now I find it overstimulates/stresses me out more than helps (too much movement). I really want to get some more of different varieties. I also intend to make a weighted blanket - I can get sterilised sand from my local DIY store and have a sewing machine and the fabric ready, I just have to wait for a day where I feel confident enough to go there and get a taxi home, its a lot out of my comfort zone. I also do yoga - which is like internal body sensory stimulation and kettlebells which is a very natural easy movement. Working my muscles hard really helps with sensory stuff. Doing a headstand is really great for when im too stressed, because it requires a lot of focus - and just the pressure on my head just calms the sensory kind of buzzing I get. I just focus on poses that help the area of my body that is feeling uncomfortable. I would love to have a swing one day - or an in-house yoga swing - which look like a lot of fun. or just an indoor swing in general
