Dry Float Therapy and Autism
The case of Casa Sebastiano
“Matteo is a 38-year-old man who lives in residential ward at Casa Sebastiano. It is hard for him to accept things or experiences that are different from what he already knows and accepts. That was also the case with Zerobody, for which a very long approaching process was necessary, along with a great commitment from the operator in respecting Matteo’s pace in touching, discovering, and understanding what it was about. One day, much to our surprise, Matteo decided to use Zerobody and…he fell asleep! For us it was a great vote of confidence and, above all, a display of deep well-being and relaxation”.
“Silvia is a girl who daily lives in a state of extreme muscle tension. Floatation sessions on Zerobody are for her a moment when she can relax and stretch her muscles, without needing an operator to step in with specific massage”.
“Giulia initially chose to use Zerobody holding the operator’s hand tight, but after a few sessions she started to use it without asking for any help. This was a great achievement for us…Giulia is used to having the operator constantly by her side, and preferably holding hands”.
