Your senses connect you to the world. Each sense organ takes in physical information from the environment and sends signals to the brain for processing. The brain takes the sense signals and processes them in some really complex ways. We might have a strong memory of past holidays when we smell turkey. A certain color might make us feel happy. The sound of thunder might trigger a memory from childhood as well as make us feel afraid. These associations are what we’re working with here. Sensory Compounding uses conditioning and learning to create relaxing responses to stressful situations.
