The Kaiko Spikey for wrist helps with self-regulation, calming, focus, concentration, tactile awareness and as a substitution for unhealthy/unhelpful behaviours. It can also be helpful in reducing pain & disturbed sensation in arms and muscles.
Some ways to use the wrist spikey...
Roll up & down the arm
Rub between two palms
- Hold in one or two hands to fidget
- Wear on wrist or ankle & flick
- Place on wrist or ankle & twist around (similar to a 'Chinese burn') applying varying degrees of pressure dependent on preference. This technique has been particularly helpful for some in minimising self harm. It can provide the 'hurt' without the harm to the skin. Of course, the spikey fidget does not replace accessing professional help. It is a useful tool for the kit bag.
Rub it on parts of body to replace picking, such as lips
