Embracing Calm: Millo's Innovative Solution for Children with Sensory Needs.

Children and adolescents, particularly those with a wide spectrum of sensory needs and neurodiversities require a specific kind of environment in which they can feel calm and secure.

They need a place that can effectively help them relax their nervous system. This is where Millo comes into the picture. Millo is a perfect solution for this need, acting almost like a comforting and enveloping hug. Millo provides an ideal level of somatic pressure, which can soothe an overstimulated nervous system.

The soothing effect can trigger the release of serotonin, the body's natural mood stabilizer, thus helping to alleviate stress. By doing so it could aid in decreasing cortisol levels, which spike during periods of stress. This has proven to be a significant aid for my own son Oliver. The Millo serves as more than just a calming corner, it becomes a refuge that can contribute positively towards managing and assisting with sensory processing needs.
