We are seriously looking at suit therapy for Miracle Mountain. In
order to make plans and meet the needs of clients we need anyone's
input who is willing to help. First of all, I want to be clear that
we are not trying to compete with anyone so I will not get involved in
any jealous tyrades or marketing practices which I have seen so far.
I really don't care who has been where and done what, etc. All I
care about is offering a program that will be best for the child.
Let me state that I appreciate all the input I have recieved so far.
I have talked to parents as well as therapists and I have arrived at
the conclusion that both Sunshine Therapy and the Therasuit seem to be
providing excellent services. So it is no longer a question of which
is best but which will work best with our program. In addition, we
are using a wonderful PT who has been to Poland and visited several
centers here in the USA on the suit therapy and is highly impressed
with her findings. She does professional assessments for the state
agencies as well as works with hippotherapy and other programs. She
is an excellent consultant for us to make these decisions and she may
even join our program.
Questions we hope to determine from your experiences:
Doing HBOT and suit therapy together seems to be the way to achieve
the most for the child. Will 2 hbot sessions with a 3 hour therapy
between sessions be too intensive for the child?
I keep thinking of setting up a wonderful "package deal" which will
include coming to Miracle Mountain complete with housing, hbot in the
morning, followed by suit therapy for 3 hours, and then in the
afternoon another hbot session. In addition, the client would recieve
a suit and the parent would receive a training on the proper use.
When the client leaves 3 weeks later they will take a suit with them
to use on a regular basis at home. In other words, let the therapy
continue after you leave on a regular basis. Do it for the benefit of
the child. Not the benefit of the center. In addition, the child
would receive our Sound Harmonics program which really improves
balance and comprehension. We do not want to do too much which would
cause stress for the client but is it too much. Many do not think so
and we are aiming in that direction.
Would you mind giving me more input at my personal email
