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.
