definition of Snoezelen:
"Snoezelen is a concept in which an indoors environment is created mainly to provide comfort by using controllable stimuli. The specially furnished rooms offer a multitude of sensorial stimulations. The user can discover the world of senses by experiencing both - the individual but also the combined effect of music, notes, sounds, light effects, tactile stimulation and aromas. The room-design has a positive therapeutic or educational effect on the user. In addition the relationship between career and user can be successfully influenced."
