Rhythmic Movement and Kinesiology

What is Rhythmic Movement?


Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) explores the role of babies’ natural developmental movements during various stages of growth:

    - Before birth
    - The first six months after birth
    - As they get up on their hands and knees
    - As they learn to walk
Primitive Reflexes Affect:
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Writing problems
  • Focussing
  • Comprehension
  • Coordination
  • Aspergers

These movements are crucial for laying down the foundations of neural network pathway growth and myelination in the brain. They are also important for establishing head control, muscle tone and posture, the basis of our ability to move through life with ease and choice. RMT works by integrating the retained, or underdeveloped, infant reflexes (also called primitive reflexes or neo-natal reflexes) which play a key role in development.

It has also been successful in working with people with anxiety, panic, emotional imbalances, behavioural problems, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s, psychosis, PTSD and general overwhelm.
