This compression top can be worn as an inner or outer garment while providing deep pressure calming and organizing sensory input. These popular shirts are designed to hug the shoulders, body trunk, and hips.
Evidence suggests that weight and pressure inputs provide both tactile and proprioceptive input to the body, calming the central nervous system as well as providing postural support and input to weak, floppy, or low tone (hypotonia) musculature.
Compression deep touch pressure causes the release of both serotonin and dopamine in the brain. These are "happy" neurotransmitters and produce a feeling of calm. Sensory compression and deep pressure often increase happy hormones while also slowing down involuntary functions such as heart rate, blood pressure and the stress hormone cortisol.
