Sensory room installation for
Allied Health Clinics

As an allied health professional, you treat patients living with lifelong disability, neurodiversity or recent trauma. Those ongoing health difficulties can cause considerable stress for them and their families.

Put your allied health clinic on the map by installing a calming sensory room to support your patients.

According to the 2020-21 census, 47% of Australians live with one or more chronic health conditions. Other statistics show that 1 in 6 of us lives with a disability, while 1% are diagnosed with autism.

That’s a lot of people managing medications, therapy appointments, and difficulties in daily life. It’s hard.

Health conditions and stress

While your patient is probably coming to you for help with physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy or something similar, relieving stress could improve their ability to cope with the extra demands their condition places on their life.

A calming sensory room does that. It’s an important part of your allied health clinic’s interior design.

What is a calming sensory room?

Sensory rooms are artfully created spaces that soothe and stimulate the senses for a therapeutic benefit. Our spaces blend art and science to create an immersive experience in a refreshing, multisensory environment.

A calming sensory room gives your patients and their families a much-needed room to reset (your staff will probably love it, too!).

Entering the sensory space feels like stepping into another world. It’s a dark, soothing, restful space that gently engages the senses. Rather than feeling overloaded by too much sensory input, your visitors feel soothed by just the right amount.

After their time in the room, your clients emerge feeling refreshed and ready to re-engage with everything you have to offer.

Case study
Cheeky Monkeys Occupational Therapy for Children in Charlestown, NSW, is delighted with their sensory room. Indeed, it’s brought them many new clients.
“I’m over the moon with it. It’s been a great investment. The proof is there. Every week, new people call up saying I’ve heard about the sensory room…”
They’ve noticed a difference in the children they work with, too. 
“They’re calmer, they’re more engaged… we haven’t had any meltdowns. Thank you to Creative Sensory Spaces for bringing so many smiles and so much wonder into every single day!”
