Primitive Reflexes Therapy
Neurofunctional patterns organisation
Behaviour support plan
The human brain is developed by the movement and stimulation of senses.
Primitive Reflexes Therapy is a natural, non invasive therapy. It is based on the movements that babies experience from their time in the womb to around 3 years of age. These movements help to integrate reflexes which in turn develop the central nervous system and the brain. Each reflex pattern is an achievement of the senso-motor area that allows them to move and learn from our environment.
Due to reasons beyond their and our control, some children do not integrate their reflexes at the appropiate point of their development. Through the use of movements, we can teach the brain to redo this work and achieve levels they may not yet have reached.
Retained reflexes might cause several issues:
- language and speech
- difficulties in keeping still
- memory, attention or learning functions.
Retained reflexes can also impede in the brain ability to process audio and visual stimuli.
Sensory-motor therapy in first stages is another kind of therapy that aims to set out the correct psychomotor development, to ensure children achieve correct patterns of movement in their development to profile both hemispheres.
Brain development depends on movement and sensory issues therefore it is important to perform these movements properly.
This development will affect future issues like attention, memory, speaking, sight integration or behaviour.
Motor and sensory development are closely related to learning and school performance. Therefore if we ensure the correct motor development, a good laterality organisation and good visual and hearing skills, academic results will be vastly improved.
Using scales of development from 0-3 years, I will be able to assist you in discovering if your child is in need of some assistance to help them further in their journey
To be able to work towards reaching their full potential, children need good neurofunctional organisation as well as, appropriate education patterns.
Tantrums, extreme fears and other issues are typical at various stages of development, could also be a sign of underlying issues if they persist for long periods of time. Issues relating to eating and sleeping could also be a sign of unintegrated reflexes.
Considering internal and external circumstances of the child allows me to adopt an holistic approach and support both, them and their parents.
The aim is to get a brain balance.
