Let us address your concerns
Does my child who had a TBI have hope for recovery?
What is important to know is that when an adult or a child goes through a traumatic brain injury it is crucial to look at REFLEXES immediately following the injury. Reflexes are the foundation for brain development, and If they are hyper or hypo-active, there will be difficulty with the brain pathways working to rewire themselves which can lead to developmental and healing issues.
You need to know that you can do many many therapies-from traditional to holistic, but if you do not address reflexes, you are not giving the brain a chance to reopen pathways for recovery and learning again. The brain will continue to stay locked into a trauma state and it may be more difficult to stimulate an efficient healing process as the body and nervous system will continue to be under stress.
Can ADHD symptoms subside with Reflex Integration treatment?
Yes, and this is because some of the causes of ADHD are brain imbalances and retained primitive reflexes. Most of the kids with ADHD have an active Spinal Galant, ATNR, and STNR reflexes still very active at the age of 6 and 7. Diagnosis of ADHD usually occurs around the time that children reach school age and parents are told that their child is exhibiting hyperactive behavior along with the inability to focus.
Addressing the protection and compensation mechanism that the child may have built up through years with the integration of reflexes gives us a huge change of making improvements on symptoms of the diagnosis. We also see great success when diet changes are made which helps to balance the gut brain connection allowing the child a better chance of improvement as they are being treated as a whole, rather than just their symptoms being treated.
Would my child with Autism self regulate with Brain Reconnection methods?
You will definitely see improvement within your child with the Brain Reconnection methods. ASD is such a complex diagnosis and kids on the spectrum range from high functioning to low functioning. That usually correlates with a lot of delays of speech, communication, self regulation, potty training, body awareness, meltdowns, focus, attention issues…you name it.
The underlying causes of ASD are still in the works, but we look at it as an epigenetic diagnosis- with genetic factors coming from diet, environment, and behavior. The expression of genes are what make one person have a diagnosis of ASD, but it is an accumulation of many stressors with a final trigger that can cause a child to be lost into this diagnosis.
Here we have addressed the remediation of ASD for a child as a whole mind and body approach. This includes diet modification, environment modification, release of stress, integration of reflexes, integrating of senses, and much more.
We pride ourselves on the many tools and therapies that we use to aid the children and parents with these diagnosis, in order to help them reach their ultimate potential.
Can low muscle tone be improved?
Yes, abnormal muscle tone can improve significantly by integrating reflexes. The reasons for muscle imbalance is usually related to trauma that happens in the womb, through the birth process, or between 0-3 years of age which is the age range that most reflexes are integrated into the body. Unintegrated or immature neural pathways can lead to less movement of the infant, increased protection mechanism activation, and stress build up within the nervous system.
All these reasons described above can contribute to low or restricted muscle tone. Once we address the retention of trauma within the body, work on improving movement, and address all the reflexes that didn’t have the chance to mature, we can accomplish great results with muscle tone regulation. It may be more difficult to address restricted muscle tone than low muscle tone, but we have achieved great results with both types of cases!
