Nature Deficit Disorder is a term coined by Richard Louv, author of "Last Child In The Woods" whose thesis details that ADD is actually NDD and whose groundbreaking work triggered the International Children & Nature Movement, which promotes health and wellness through spending time in nature.
Physical, mental and emotional health of children is compromised because of the disconnect between children and nature due to greater city and urban sprawl happening worldwide.
This shows up in the epidemic of childhood obesity in America, ADD, ADHD, Autism, hypoglycemia and symptoms such as nervousness, irritability, anxiety, confusion, memory loss, headaches, night terror, paranoia, fatigue and depression to name a few.

Medical studies show Sensory Integration Therapy (SIT), benefits for Autism, ADD, CFS, long term stress reduction, improvement of sleep states, & many health conditions including increased concentration, attentiveness, learning, communication and balance between brain hemispheres, body awareness and more.
Parents & Children, Siblings or Couples
During "floating sessions" client and therapist sit side-by-side, sharing control over each others motions and attention in a safe environment which can facilitate emotional connection and new learning.
When a child feels safe and connected, communication, learning and attention to the information being presented becomes easier.
Peaceful conflict resolution
Doctors say people who are bed-ridden or without enough motion quickly develop serious health problems. One reason is because the lymphatic system is not getting rid of toxins and waste. Reducing swelling is a fundamental principle of healing. Patients are required to get up and move around as soon as possible after surgery even if they are in pain.
Floating Bed rocking therapy is a painless way to stimulate the lymphatic system, increase blood circulation, reduce swelling and start the detox process. In minutes, motion decreases back pressure in the circulatory system, and noticeably reduces soreness, aches, back pain and swelling throughout the body.

Imagine day dreaming, journaling and falling asleep to the sounds of nature, birds singing, hawks and wild peacocks calling, horses whinnying, squirrels chattering and smelling the scents of fresh trees, fallen leaves and seasonal flowers while floating above the ground in a cozy teepee shaped Floating Bed suspended from a lovely large oak tree and protected by mosquito netting.
