The idea of providing soothing or energizing multi-sensory treatment has been used to treat dementia patients and children with developmental challenges. The multi-sensory treatment is used to stimulate the brains and imaginations of the patients, and research has been observed to relieve stress, anxiety, and pain while positively encouraging the patient’s drive and motivation.
Where and How It’s Used
Apart from dementia care, multi-sensory stimulation is now used to help adults with learning disabilities, children with special needs, pediatrics and maternity care, adult psychiatry, stroke/brain injury and management of chronic pain.
Multi-sensory stimulation is currently given in the form of a specialized room with different equipment. Such a room is called sensory room, or “Snoezelen”, a concept coined by Dutch therapists who created a multi-sensory room for children with developmental challenges.

As used in dementia care, multi-sensory stimulation has been observed to increase happiness, enjoyment and relaxation. It also reduces sadness and fear, as well as increases attentiveness and communication skills. In elderly homes, the stimulation also reduces disturbed behavior and improves staff morale.
When used to address learning disabilities such as autism or multi-sensory stimulation improves interaction and communication as well as adaptive behaviors.
Moreover, multi-sensory therapy has also shown to reduce pain levels, depression, sleep disability and helps sufferers cope with pain.
Years of study has shown that multi-sensory therapy is deeply personal. There is a set of simulations that an individual would find soothing, but another individual would find distressing. There is a need for a personalized multi-sensory therapy that can cater to individual needs.
