I found out I needed pressure to help me during meltdowns accidentally. I was at the beach and there were big metal support beams at the end of the beach holding up the road or protecting the road from the sea. I found myself standing in between these beam things and the feeling of the slight squeeze it gave me made me feel much better.
A friend told me about the Tjacket and it has changed my life. I adore it..
It's easy to control it from my phone and it "looks after me". I feel like I'm having a huge cuddle, I feel calmer and less anxious. When I have meltdowns or get over excited, it reassures me, makes me feel incredibly safe and secure. It also grounds me.
Using it just before bedtime on the pre set programs relaxes me so much and helps me come down after the overwhelming day so I wind down quicker. The squeezing calms me enough that I can think better when I start getting stressed and confused.
This jacket is a life changer.
