Who can benifit from NDT ?
Adults and children of all ages can benefit from these therapies. I look at each person that walks through the door as an individual and meet them where they are.
How do you determine which therapy is needed?
A set of simple, non-invasive tests reveals whether primitive reflexes are still active. Going back to where development has stalled, the domino run of reflexes is restarted with a program designed for each individual which may include one or more of the following therapies.
Dermal Brushing Therapy
The skin and the brain both come from the same embryological tissue, so the skin acts as a doorway into the brain and nervous system. After having a diagnostic assessment to see which Primitive Reflexes are still active and the degree to which they are still affecting the development of the brain and central nervous system, a protocol of gentle skin brushing is suggested twice a day.
This treatment is calming, simple, effective, and restarts wherever the development was stalled. Developmental issues can improve within the first six weeks.
Primitive Movement therapy
Primitive Movement is another suggested treatment done at home which takes around 5-10 min/day and is suitable for both children and adults.
These relaxing movements are naturally done by newborns and young babies to encourage the Brain and Central Nervous system to mature, leading to lasting positive changes that can be seen emotionally, physically and cognitively.
What is Rhythmic Movement therapy?
Rhythmic Movements are a series of movements based on what infants do in the early months after birth. This also can be done once or twice a day accompanied by singing or music. These movements are gentle enough to be done on babies and small toddlers, yet also effective for all ages.
The exercises have a subtle yet powerful positive effect on the Neurodevelopmental maturing process.
What is Holistic Cranial Therapy?
Holistic Cranial Therapy is a gentle yet profound, non-invasive and hands on treatment for the whole body. Usually done on a massage table or mat, the client is fully clothed and the touch is light and gentle.
The treatment is focused on supporting the health of the whole being, the brain and the nervous system. It creates a balanced and relaxed state in the body and mind and is supportive of the Neurodevelopmental maturing process.
