Touch

Can you feel it?

Think of all of the ways touch affects your daily life, from a rough wool sweater to a leather steering wheel to the cardboard sleeve on your morning coffee. Do you have any textures that you don’t like? Through the immersion of each of our members in a diverse tactile world we allow you to integrate these sensations so that they all feel normal. Suddenly the itchy shirt tag distracting your child in class disappears and their focus can be dedicated to learning.
