Neurodevelopment Therapy

Neurodevelopment therapy uses movements, pressure, massage

and balance to help the brain to improve connections to give

access to better focus, concentration, emotional regulation,

organisation, academic acheivemnt and a reduction in anxiety.

 One of the ways to do this is by integrating retained primitive

reflexes.  Primitive reflexes are movement patterns that all

babies make that help with the development of the brain and

the central nervous system. If these movement patterns aren't

able to be repeated properly, they get stuck and that can then

create problems with development.  This can show up

emotionally with things like anxiety or temper tantrums,

physically with things like fidgeting, W-sitting or clumsiness

or mentally with problems such as focus, organisation or academic issues.  The way to address these reflexes which have been retained in the system is through movement.  There are many different approaches but by finding a programme that works for you or your child, reflexes should integrate and the brain should be able to build new connections or strengthen the connections which are already present and make life very much easier!

By working on primitive reflexes and using a movement programme, you can improve the following:

  • Self esteem

  • Self confidence

  • Academic skills – reading, writing and maths

  • Listening

  • Speech

  • Cognitive skills

  • Comprehension skills

  • Organisation skills

  • Emotional issues

  • Communication skills

  • Muscle tone

  • Posture

  • Balance

  • Focus and concentration

  • Co-ordination

  • Processing of information

  • Self confidence

  • Behaviour management

  • Executive functions

 

 

Working on primitive reflexes can help at any age.  I see both children and adults.

One of the main programmes I use is Rhythmic Movement Training, a very accessible programme that utilises the power of rhythm to engage the brain.  Would you like to train in Rhythmic Movement?  Perfect for therapists to integrate into their specific therapy - counselling, hypnotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic - any therapy benefits from a better understanding of primitive reflexes and how to integrate them.  Teachers can really undertsand and help their pupils and parents can understand and help their children (and sometimes partners!)
