Sensory overload is overwhelming, but the solutions can be simple.
This is the mantra that drives solutions created by our Founder and CEO, Christel Seeberger.
Working in health care for over 25 years, Christel Seeberger saw how sensory sensitivity and sensory overload caused people to feel overwhelmed and anxious. People of all ages simply stopped living life when they could not find sensory-friendly experiences.
