What is Neurodevelopmental Movement?
Neurodevelopmental Movements are excellent for developing the brain, sensory, nervous and motor systems. They help the brain grow and function at its best, resulting in more happiness and health.
Neurodevelopmental Movements are derived from what babies do in the womb and infancy and they are highly stimulating to the brain. No matter what our age, doing these movements will literally "wire the brain" creating new nerve connections, and more efficient pathways among existing nerves. Neurodevelopmental Movements are in large part responsible for the tremendous rate of brain growth we see in infants and toddlers. In addition to being very calming, the movements are critically important for laying down the neuro-sensory-motor foundations for higher level skills such as language development, social interaction and learning. The neuro-sensory-motor foundation can have gaps, from mild to severe. These gaps exist from womb and infant life or from trauma or injuries later in life. With Neurodevelopmental Movement, we can bridge these gaps and create more ease and effectiveness in all realms of life.

Neurodevelopmental Movement is excellent for sensory integration because it calms the nervous system while developing vision, hearing, balance, touch and proprioception. The motor systems also develop for proper head control, muscle tone, stamina, strength and posture. These basic sensory-motor skills have been called the "foundations for all future learning" Our learning, emotional, social, and physical abilities depend on how well the neural pathways in the brain are laid down in infancy. Neurodevelopmental Movements give us a second chance to rebuild the foundations of brain and body health.

What is Reflex Integration?

Reflex Integration looks at the role of developmental movements that babies naturally make:
  • Before birth
  • The first six months after birth
  • As they get up on their hands and knees
  • As they learn to walk 

Reflex Integration looks at how these movements are crucial in laying down the foundations for neural network pathway growth and myelinisation in the brain, and its effect on learning as we grow and develop, and come to rely on the lifelong postural reflexes.
Reflex Integration works with integrating the retained, or underdeveloped, infant reflexes that are involved in learning challenges such as ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, writing problems, focusing and comprehension challenges, co-ordination difficulties and Asperger's Syndrome. 
It has also been successful in working with people with anxiety, panic, emotional imbalances, behavioral problems, schizophrenia, Parkinson's, psychosis and general overwhelm.

Reflex Integration replicates the developmental movements associated with the infant reflexes. We also use gentle isometric pressure to bring awareness to the body, which assists in releasing the stress and learned patterns of behavior. Reflex Integration looks at the whole. We do not fix or diagnose. We encourage and draw out the potential of the person. Our consultants use a combination of reflex checks,  and using the technique of muscle checking to ascertain how the imbalances and learning challenges have affected the person; and, then to establish the best way to promote integration. 

What is Brain Gym®?
Brain Gym is the world’s most successful learning system and is found in over 86 countries. It is a learning readiness program based on the premise that the deepest, most integrated learning is always drawn out through our kinesthetic experience - our perception of our own movement. Brain Gym is distinctive in that it addresses the physical (rather than mental) components of learning. It builds on what the learner already knows and does well meeting the learner just as they are, without any judgment of their capabilities. Brain Gym teaches the student key elements of learning theory that they will be able to apply lifelong. It is also used effectively in business, sports and the arts.
