Primitive reflex integration can help people discover the developmental steps that they have missed by showing the central nervous system what it should have done first time around, and making new, higher brain connections.
Those with behavioural, emotional, postural or learning challenges all have one thing in common: they have a prevalence of active primitive reflexes/retained reflexes. These are the reflexes we are all born with, which should have disappeared within the first two years of our lives, as we progress through the "typical" milestones, such as rolling, sitting, crawling, etc, within the "typical" window of development. If we do not integrate these primitive reflexes, they remain "retained" in our systems causing various challenges throughout life.
By using a combination of specific foetal and infant movement patterns, sometimes alongside a specially designed sound programme, it is possible to "reboot" the nervous system, giving you a second chance to meet those developmental milestones.
