Rhythmic Movement Therapy

RMT 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

 

RMT 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. RMT works with integrating the retained, or underdeveloped, infant reflexes that are involved in learning challenges such as ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, writing problems, focussing and comprehension challenges, co-ordination difficulties and Asperger's Syndrome.
