Liz is now a Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Trainer (BRMT) and Consultant

In my last blog I mentioned that I would discuss further the importance of crawling. I apologize for taking a few months to write another blog; to say I have been busy is a huge understatement. I have been teaching kindergarten full time, writing case studies, taking Rhythmic Movement classes and co-teaching classes in the U.S. and Canada with Dr. Harold Blomberg, to become an International Rhythmic Movement Consultant and Trainer.
I am now a certified Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Consultant with Dr. Harold Blomberg
In March 2016, I will finish all my qualifications to become a Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Trainer (BRMT) for levels 1, 2 and 3.  I will be co-teaching BRMT Levels 1, 2 and 3 in Slovenia with instructor Carol Ann Erickson. It is my plan to then start teaching these courses in Canada as accredited courses for Occupational Therapists and Teachers who work so closely with reflexes that are not integrated.
What is Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Training a.k.a. BRMT or RMT?
The program is inspired by the rhythmic, reflexive movement patterns that babies automatically make before they learn to walk. BRMT works to integrate primitive reflexes by replicating specific developmental movements in a rhythmic way or with the use of gentle isometric pressure. This approach is a gentle, natural alternative to traditional medical diagnoses and treatment for those who wish to reach or regain their full potential. 
This neurodevelopmental approach is simple, easy to implement, effective, non-invasive, empowering, and a non-drug strategy designed to enhance neurological systems that are causing learning or life difficulties. Many people who experience challenges in learning or social interaction have neuro-developmental irregularities that are the root cause of these difficulties.
The Importance of Integrating Primitive Reflexes (infant), Reflexes Essential for:
  • development of head control
  • muscle tone
  • sensory integration 
  • emotional and physical development 
They form the basis of our postural, lifelong reflexes. The incomplete integration of primitive reflexes may be a contributing cause of ADD/ADHD, autism, learning challenges, developmental delay, apraxia, sensory integration disorders, vision and hearing challenges, behavior challenges, extreme shyness, lack of confidence, addiction, and constant feelings of being overwhelmed. 
Rhythmic Movement Training helps children and adults complete the primitive reflex patterns by using simple, organized movements that require no special equipment to greatly enhance performance and functionality. RMT helps transform symptoms that are seemingly unrelated (due to a lack of communication in key parts of the brain) into an integrated system to reduce stress and symptomatic behaviors.
In my next blog I will discuss the importance of crawling and the reflexes linked to crawling. I will explain how you can help your child or a child you are working with integrate these reflexes. Stay tuned!
