Vestibular (balance system)
THE POWER SENSATIONS: VESTIBULAR #1
* Arises from the firing of the vestibular apparatus in each inner ear
* This system also tells the brain where "down" is because the vestibular apparatus registers the pull of gravity
Vestibular sensations are the strongest of all sensations and have the greatest effect on focused learning, muscle tone, correct posture and even visual focus!
Poorly integrated vestibular systems = poorly functioning visual and muscle systems!
Movement in a swing from a single point in a linear direction for 15 minutes sets the arousal level in the brain and body to an optimum level to get a calming or arousing response, whichever is needed in order to be at the best arousal level to learn, pay attention, and keeps all brain chemicals at optimum levels for learning.
Vestibular power sensation is the most powerful and longest lasting sensation (typically 8 hours after 15 minutes on a swing hung from a single point in a linear direction).
Vestibular input is a very strong brain stem sensation which is best if done first and followed by proprioception before a cortical task so that the brain stem can take care of and focus on ANS (Automatic Nervous System) functioning and the cortex can register more information (½ hour to 45 minutes before functional tasks is best done 2 times daily).
