Children do not use bathing just for self-cleansing alone. Bathing can be a fun and relaxing experience, and even a nice opportunity for bonding and playtime between siblings. However, for some children a bath can be stressful experience…and that’s where a sensory bathroom comes into play. An expert blend of bathing and sensory elements can create a safe haven... allowing bath time to be enjoyed, not feared.
Let the Sensorykraft and Kingkraft teams work with you on your very own sensory bathroom project... and you too can explore the endless benefits that a sensory bathroom has to offer!
Sensory mood-lighting has been used in various studies with researchers unanimously agreeing that, when used correctly; colours of light can positively influence people’s mood. Mood-lighting can help stimulate and balance the sensory system, particularly for those on the autistic spectrum.
Sensory projectors can provide relaxing imagery as a distraction for those who feel anxious during bathing time, whilst also helping to develop a range of skills including tracking and colour recognition.
Bluetooth speakers are a great addition to any sensory bathroom. Music therapy is a magnificent tool for helping to create ambience and promote a feeling of safety, relaxation and tranquility. Amazon Alexa integration can also be used to help aid voice control.
Aromatherapy is recognised as an extremely powerful addition to the sensory experience, delivering immediate sensory stimulation and achieving an immediate and positive therapeutic effect to help sooth the bather.
