Jane discovers the BioMat to help her family

It seems like families of children with autism or other disorders are always on the lookout for alternative services, and our family is no different. We have found that the medical conditions that arise from our child are not necessarily textbook examples. We have had to learn to search and think outside the box to find solutions that fit our child and family’s needs. That is where BioMat 4 Autism has been a perfect fit for our family!

Our experience begins with the quiet, calming and nurturing atmosphere that is created when you enter the McFarland Family Wellness Center, where BioMat 4 Autism is located. Debbie Armstrong starts each relationship with a thorough consultation to discover what services might be the best fit for your specific needs.

Debbie goes through school issues, nutritional needs, sensory concerns, sleep, pain, behavioral issues and so much more. She was able to uncover some nonintegrated primitive reflexes that not even our OT had brought to our attention.

Every time I go into the center I feel nurtured and safe. It doesn’t matter if I am there to pick up an essential oil blend, nutritional supplement, for an autism movement class, or other private session for my daughter — I am always welcomed with open arms. Debbie is very knowledgeable and I have learned so much from her.

BioMat 4 Autism has so much to offer, and there isn’t one service that I wouldn’t recommend to others. Speaking of services, I was amazed at Debbie’s skills and the variety of services available through BioMat 4 Autism. If your child, or even you, are in need of a weighted blanket to help with sensory integration issues you can get one made to your specifications. Are you having difficulties with school issues or not sure about your child’s IEP? Debbie has some very creative ideas and will support you through the process. Brain training and color therapy are great for those with attention deficit/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD), autism or other learning disabilities.

I love using the BioMat. I always feel energized and relaxed after my session. The effects of the BioMat continue beyond each use and have helped me regain control of my life. Before purchasing the mini BioMat for our daughter, Debbie allowed us to rent it for several weeks to be sure that it was exactly what we needed. We saw our daughter wake up each morning happy and calm. She was able to begin interacting with her peers at school and was even better able to follow directions at school. If she starts to melt down, we have her sit on the BioMat and in about 15-20 minutes we notice that she is completely relaxed. Debbie went the extra mile to make sure that the BioMat was the right option.

Whether you are dealing with autism, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities or other disorders, I encourage you to consider the services offered at BioMat 4 Autism. The quiet, calming and caring atmosphere is a great place to learn more about options to get you or your family’s fitness, nutrition, health and well-being back on track.
