The main effects of a stocking are:
- Self-regulation - The proprioceptive sensations that the child can independently regulate help him/her calm down.
- Endurance - Due to the resistance of the stocking, the child develops strength and endurance by moving in it. With it, you can do sports exercises, yoga, daily things, as well as, for example, reading.
- Awareness of one’s own body - The sensations that the child receives in the stocking help him understand where his arms and legs are relative to him. Even just crawling or walking in a stocking will help the child examine his body.
