View Full Version : Sensory Integration and Music

Hi People.

Ever since I was a young child, I would rock from side to side in a sitting position to favourite music either heard on the radio/cd or tunes in my head, I would also hum or sing along as well.

Strangely when I was 16 I actually stopped rocking for 5 years but the behaviour was replaced by pacing (which I still do sometimes) and just 2 years ago the rocking started again and it's getting back to it most annoying pattern, someone told me that I might have serious vestibular (movement) and auditory (hearing) sensory issues, I also hum musical tunes when I'm in movement such as walking, sitting on a moving bus, car or train, even when typing message (which is I guess a form of movement)

Can someone please tell me if they've had similar experiences.

Dunno if what you are experiencing is too terribly unsual... I nod my head and tap my feet automatically to a good beat. I think you need to hit the dance floor!! :D

I'm more into the old time stuff as opposed to live bands, I'm not one for nightclubs now that I'm

Same here if I'm in a busy place I will try to think of a song to control my breathing :)
