Some people love, and need, bodily sensations like hugs, massages, swinging, touching things etc. probably because they have a Sensing temperament, a tactile learning style, or as a way of instinctively seeking sensory integration if they are hyposensitive.

“I am a combination but mostly hyposensitive. I am especialy seeking vestibular and tactile experinces. Such as spinning, rocking and dancing. I also like to feel most things. Sometimes I also hurt myself without knowing it.”

“I don’t have as many problems as I used to. I guess I have found better coping methods. The biggest problems I have now are accidently hurting myself, wasting time from rocking and developing problems with my wrists from rocking. I have a rocking chair but sometimes it is not enough.”
