Emma Ashfield discovered the power of reflex integration through her family. While working to help her children using reflex integration techniques.

She qualified to study osteopathy, but along the way, came across Rhythmic Movement Training, and found her true vocation by experiencing change first hand.

She has worked with a variety of people with challenges encompassing autism spectrum disorders, dyspraxia, dyslexia, anxiety, sensory processing disorder and speech and language disorders.

She recently helped edit Moira Dempsey’s new book, “Beyond the Sea Squirt: A Journey With Reflexes”, and helped Moira to decide on this excellent book title, as well as contributing a couple of her own RMTi case studies.

The reason why Rhythmic Movement Training for whole brain and primitive reflex integration in conjunction with the Safe and Sound Protocol is such a powerful combination is because they bring a person out of their very primitive survival brain and into their social engagement system, regulating their autonomic nervous system and giving improved self-awareness and readiness to tackle postural and learning challenges.

Emma works from the Cranleigh Osteopathic Practice and at the New St Clinic in Horsham.

Who do I work with?

I do not need a “diagnosis” in order to work with people. The majority of my RMTi clients have the following challenges:

  • specific learning difficulties, such as dyspraxia, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia
  • attention challenges
  • anxiety / depression
  • separation anxiety
  • poor self regulation
  • speech and language difficulties
  • selective mutism
  • global development disorder
  • sleep challenges
  • bedwetting (over the age of 7)
  • problems with pencil grip
  • problems keeping focus

I have also worked successfully with people with the following challenges:

  • vascular dementia
  • stroke
  • motion sickness
  • phobias
  • trying to quit smoking
  • fibromyalgia
  • Ehlers Danlos
