Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Training
Primitive reflexes are the foundation for cognitive, emotional, and physical development.
Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Training is a neuro-developmental program of gentle, rocking movements and isometric pressure that is proven to integrate our active primitive reflexes. Primitive reflexes are active in all infants, but as we progress through the stages of neurological development these reflexes become integrated.
The majority of children and adults still have at least one active primitive reflex. Reflexes can become reactivated after experiencing trauma, surgery, food intolerance, environmental or emotional stress - even the everyday or long term stress that affects us all can trigger or reactivate a reflex.
Doing these simple movements creates new neural pathways in the brain, just as it does in the infants who integrate them instinctively. By making new neural connections, we can transform the way we process emotions, the way we think, and the way we move.
BRMT is a gentle, natural, holistic alternative to traditional medical diagnosis and treatment. It is simple, easy to implement, effective, non-invasive, empowering, non-drug approach designed to enhance neurological systems that are causing learning, behavioral, cognitive, motor, emotional or speech challenges, or eating and sleep difficulties.
Who benefits from BRMT?
BRMT movements can benefit anyone who is looking to make improvements in their life or the lives of others. This includes, children, parents, adults, senior citizens, teachers, therapists, and doctors.
The Exceptional Children program is specifically designed to be used by physical and occupational therapists who work with children, and it is also beneficial for parents of exceptional children.
The Pain Management program is geared towards therapists who work with adults and senior citizens, as well as adults who are interested in treating their own pain.
Physical and occupational therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, chiropractors, speech and language pathologists, lactation specialists, classroom teachers and parents have all had success implementing BRMT therapies with their clients and students. BRMT courses provide relevant content and instructions on how to use these techniques in a clinic or in a classroom.
What can BRMT improve?
As primitive reflexes are the basis for all cognitive, emotional, and physical development, BRMT can be used to eliminate a wide array of symptoms. These include but are not limited to:
- Learning difficulty
- Motor challenges
- Muscle pain
- Muscle weakness
- Reading difficulty
- Sensory processing disorders
- Sleeping problems
- Speech and language challenges
- Vision challenges
- Angry outbursts
- Balance problems
- Behavior challenges
- Cognitive delays
- Coordination issues
- Emotional challenges
- Joint pain
Each reflex is associated with more than one developmental milestone. Learning to integrate those which remain unintegrated can make a difference in several areas of one person's life. After just one two-day course, most participants see vast improvements in more than one aspect of their own well-being, which encourages them to bring these movements to their students, clients, and loved ones.
