This amazing Kaiko Spikey fidget has been an instant favourite! It provides firm and textured sensory feedback when rolled up and down the wrist. It is touted to have remedial benefit, stimulating acupressure points and assisting with circulation. These are stretchy but firm.
It is particularly good for those that pick and bite as the 'bitey' sensation stimulates in a similar way without the harm.
Some ways to use the spikey...
- Roll up and down the arm
- Rub between two palms
- Hold in one or two hands to fidget
- Wear on wrist or ankle & flick
Place on wrist or ankle & twist around, applying varying degrees of pressure - dependent on preference. This technique has been particularly helpful for some in minimising self-harm. It can provide the 'hurt' without harm to the skin. Of course, the spikey fidget does not replace accessing professional help. It is a useful tool for the kit-bag.
- Rub it on parts of body to replace picking, such as lips
Please note if wearing the spikey for any period of time that it is important to monitor the skin to ensure it is not compromising circulation.
You can slightly stretch the metal, working around it to create a looser feel if preferred. This needs to be done bit by bit and section by section to create an even stretch. Please note once stretched it cannot be unstretched.
