I've been using the therapressure brushing on my daughter for the last couple of months. She reacted positively to the "brushing" at first, then started to "stim" even more after a time. When I began brushing her less often, she had the same positive response, like she did when we began. Then her "stimming" began to slowly increase again. Now, if I brush her, she seems even more sensitive to touch than usual and stims like crazy.
Should I continue to brush her and push past this sensitivity? Should I quit altogether?
