Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) includes specific rhythmic movements which imitate instinctual baby movements, to stimulate new connections being made in the brain in order to help the brain and nervous system mature and integrate primitive infant reflexes. RMT is particularly useful for persons with such challenges as ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, co-ordination difficulties, developmental, speech and learning delays, sensory processing disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and many other challenges. RMT assists with improvements in areas including:
* Anxiety/panic/emotional problems
* Learning disabilities
The movements provide stimulation to several senses, including the tactile, proprioceptive (the inner sense of our body) and vestibular (balance) senses, which all form the foundational basis of our sensory system.
As children move and balance in gravity, they also develop their motor skills, their automatic, conscious, and more skilled movement patterns. Together these motor and sensory skills support the ability to be stable, balanced, and grounded in the body and emotions.
