Sheets Of It

I have different sized sheets of bubble wrap for my colleagues and some patients to pop when they come to see me.

Everything from very, very tiny bubbles to very large, industrial-sized bubble wrap.

They are cut  into large sheets and are on my work table among many other therapeutic toys like the Slinky along with coloring books and crayons.

It has helped many people calm down and take control of situations and work through frustrations so they can get back to doing what they are supposed to be doing.

Bubble wrap therapy is good.

Only that they are drawn to it based on what upset them and what they feel will help them release the tension.



It depends on their level of frustration. Some believe that the tiny bubble wrap helps for the those that are very uptight. Some believe that the very large bubble wrap helps those that are really uptight. Some like to pop a lot of little bubbles. It helps them feel like that have accomplished a lot. Some like the very big bubbles because it is something large that they can pop. It just depends on what gets them frustrated and what they feel will calm them down.



I let colleagues and patients decide what type of physical therapy they want to use. Some color on blank sheets of paper, some like a coloring book. Some like to connect the dots. Everybody likes to pop bubble wrap. It is something that they can destroy without hurting anybody or anything.

So is there anything that can be determined by the size of bubble wrap the patient chooses?
