What is Tactile Stimulation?

Tactile Stimulation activates the nerve signals below the skin and inform the body of different touch sensations. It relates to the sense of touch and texture. Autistic people or people with tactile sensory issues may have problem in tolerating the sensations which are caused while dressing or performing routine activities.

How does Tactile Stimulation work?

The nerve endings transmit signals to the brain, and it interprets them as pain, pressure, vibration, temperature, and body position. Fingertips are equipped with a large number of these nerves and are extremely sensitive to all tactile stimuli. These sensations are somatic, as they originate at the surface of the body rather than internally.


Many tactile stimulation products can be key in regaining or maintaining gross motor skills and muscle movements by providing proprioceptive feedback to the patient. It is not something that happens overnight, so patient compliance to therapy can be the key to success.
