PRIMITIVE REFLEXES

They are innate reflexes from the Central Nervous System (CNS) that allow humans to develop from birth.

The presence of primitive reflexes after the age of three is a symptom of immaturity of the Nervous System and involves difficulties in its development, thereby affecting gross and fine motor skills, as well as cognitive and sensory perception.

More than 90 % of the attention and learning problems are due to the fact that some primitive reflexes has not matured properly during its development period. The result is a chain reaction causing neurological attention problems and hyperactivity.

The Rhythmic Movement Therapy (RMT) consists in a series of gentle and rhythmic exercises aimed at enhancing neurological and motor development, thus obtaining proper integration of primitive reflexes that might be active.

SOME SYMPTOMS OR SIGNS WHICH MAY INDICATE THAT PRIMITIVE REFLEXES ARE INCORRECTLY INTEGRATED:

Difficulties while learning to read and write

Concentration and attention problems

Hyperactive behaviour

Dyslexia

Difficulties to remain seated

Hypersensitivity to sound

Dizziness due to movement
