Postby apachejunction » Wed Sep 27, 2017 11:11 pm

My daughter is 31 yrs old and has autism she gets nervous anxious at times and she has tried
a compression weight vest , several in fact but no results .
we contacted another compression vest co and found if the vest does not fit correctly it wont work
we tried one of their vests and the results were amazing better balance she is calm and relaxed she feels better and looks better even less frazzled her autisticvest was just perfect for her it does work but the fit is important so check fit on person to get good results.

I've never understood why these weighted things make someone with autism feel better. Just can't wrap my head around the science of it. I do know that when my dog lays across my legs when I'm in bed that it is very soothing.
