OMST is a technique used to help the brain learn or relearn multisensory processing.
Multisensory processing is the ability to filter, modulate, and integrate all the senses our brain receives from the environment so that we can pay attention to what is important and ignore what isn’t. It is one of the earliest and most important functions our brain learns to do before higher brain learning can take place.
OMST is a unique method involving simultaneous presentation of sensory stimulations in a safe and controlled clinical situation. This includes syntonic optometric phototherapy (specific frequencies of coloured light), vestibular (motion) stimulation, auditory stimulation, somatosensory (touch and feel) input, and optometric vision therapy.
