Integrating Movement into Preschool Curriculums to Promote Learning for ALL Children by Laura J. Krueger PT.MA and Mary J. Sullivan-Coleman OTR.MA.
The use of circular whole body stretch bands and small molding balls in movement therapy provides unique ways for the dance movement therapist to address the physical, mental, and emotional issues of aging. This sensory approach stimulates our proprioceptive and neuro-muscular systems responsible for increased receptivity, assimilation, and memory.

Pressing into or being supported by the walls of heavy spandex can address a multitude of symptoms: sensitivity to touch, hypo or hyper mobility, poor co-ordination, spatial awareness, and body boundaries.
