The Double Take Compression Shirt offers a double layer of compression with a durable stretch cotton lining inside for kids who need an extra layer of comfy material or who may be sensory tactile defensive, and a double layer of compression. This unisex compression top is layered on the outside with a 4-way stretch lycra fabric (preferred for good and consistent compression) and layered on the inside with a stretch cotton knit, which allows the child to work or play in comfort, creatively and actively.
The compression top is also reversible 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.
Compression increases endorphin levels and decreases heart rate and blood pressure. Deep touch pressure causes the release of both serotonin and dopamine in the brain. These are "happy" neurotransmitters and produce a feeling of calm. Deep sensory pressure often increases happy hormones such as serotonin and dopamine while also slowing down involuntary functions such as heart rate, blood pressure and the stress hormone cortisol.
