The Reflex Assessment can be a stand alone session, taking about 1.5 to 2 hours per person. Or, the Reflex Assessment may include either a written or verbal report.
Because the Childhood Reflexes can re-emerge due to accidents, illness, stress, emotional trauma, and advancing age, parents and grandparents or people with Acquired Brain Injury or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder may also choose to have a Reflex Assessment Session.
With your Reflex Assessment and Report in hand, you're then able to explore your options for integrating your Childhood (and developing your Postural) Reflexes. You could choose to take certificated classes (such as Rhythmic Movement Training Int'l, Brain Gym, Touch for Health or SIPS Kinesiology). Or you might prefer to have private sessions (in home or via Skype) -
* movement based sessions OR
* Specialized Kinesiology based sessions OR
* sessions that combine both movement and Specialized Kinesiology

Individually Designed Developmental Movement Program
Rhythmic Movement Training (RMTi) provides the basis of the movement based developmental program. Following a Reflex Assessment, the most beneficial order of integration of the retained reflexes will be determined, and specific Rhythmic Movements (either passive or active) will be assigned to the parents for their child/ren. RMTi is not a "quick fix" - it takes daily repetition of the Rhythmic Movements or Isometric Exercises (beginning with 2-3 minutes and working up to 15 minutes per day) to integrate the reflexes.
Therefore, appointments are designed and scheduled to suit your child's developmental progress. Some parents like to have bi-weekly appointments initially, to ensure they're doing the Rhythmic Movements correctly; then, to space the appointments at 4 to 6 week intervals, particularly if a family is traveling long distances for the sessions. Brain Gym(R) and Bal-A-Vis-X(TM) activities and protocols may also form part of the movement program. For example, a Brain Gym re-patterning process or two may be deemed beneficial if there is lack of physical co-ordination or confusion with Left/Right, Top/Bottom, Front/Back, etc. Bal-A-Vis-X encompasses working with balls, bean bags, and balance boards to enhance the brain-body-sensory-motor integration process.

Wendy facilitates a S/K session using light touch muscle monitoring as a body-mind / biofeedback mechanism, which is a very effective and versatile tool for detecting and correcting various imbalances in the body. These imbalances may relate to stress, learning challenges, attention disorders (ADD/ADHD), injuries, retained primitive reflexes / under developed postural reflexes, and other physical or emotional difficulties which keep us from functioning at our full potential. NOTE: Clients remain fully clothed for Specialized Kinesiology (S/K) sessions.
S/K modalities used by Wendy include LEAP-Brain Integration (Learning Enhancement Acupressure Program), created by Charles T. Krebs, PhD; Applied Physiology, created by Richard Utt, L. Ac; SIPS Kinesiology (Stress Indicator Point System), created by Ian Stubbings; and N.O.T. (Neural Organization Technique), created by Carl Ferreri, DD, PhC. Read more...
