Little Bird Practice Design

Sound Shell ChairAt Little Bird, we are bringing the natural rejuvenating and calming outdoors, inside.

From warm colours, to full size trees, live slab wood tables, and a waterfall feature. Creating a welcoming environment where our patient families will feel cared for and at home. The practice is fully accessible, fragrance free, and with ample free parking.

We are a baby friendly practice, with a cozy reading corner, rocking and sound shell chairs, and accessible washrooms with change tables. For new parents and those nursing, we are breastfeeding friendly. If privacy is desired, we have special rooms each with unique natural calming features.

The Sound Shell Chair

A Flaghouse Snoezelen® soft cushioned chair that incorporates music and vibration. The shape and construction make it perfect for both sound isolation and acoustics. Its chamber-like shape and upholstered interior cancels out most outside noise, providing a unique environment for meditation and relaxation.

Having pioneered the integration of Snoezelen® with healthcare, there are many multi-sensory items throughout our clinic including tactile tiles, bubble tubes, and spaces where we can customize many additional features to each patient’s unique needs.

What is Snoezelen®?

Snoezelen multi-sensory environments are relaxing spaces that help reduce agitation and anxiety, but they can also engage and delight the user, stimulate reactions and encourage communication.

Our goal is to provide compassionate, personalized care to each and every patient.

Below are some of the unique design features of our clinic:

  1. Waiting room with areas for the whole family – quiet reading corner, tablet zones, Snoezelen® tactile space (for all ages to touch and explore), and Sound Shell Chair to be able to rest and rejuvenate
  2. Separate greeting and check out areas to ensure utmost patient privacy
  3. Initial consultation space intentionally looks similar to a cozy beach house instead of a medical office for patient and family comfort
  4. Treatment rooms with unique features
    1. Overhead lighting that can be controlled in each space with dimmers
    2. Ceiling mounted televisions (Netflix)
    3. Two before or after appointment special rooms with natural calming features (Waterfall shimmer and Space/laser stars)
    4. Weighted blankets for calming support and patient safety (protective stabilization)
  5. Classroom/Activity Room & Snoezelen® Space – is where we will lead Buteyko breathing and myofunctional exercise classes for our patients (re-educating and optimizing their growth, development and function)
