Rhythmic Movement Training™

What is Rhythmic Movement Training™(RMT)

Rythmic Movement Training™ is founded on replicating the rhythmic movements an infant naturally makes in order to stimulate the brain to build better foundation. Such movement training has been used in Sweden for more than 25 years.

RMT™ provides sensorial stimulation to develop nerve nets of the brain stem, cerebellum, basal ganglia and neo-cortex to develop. It has the effect on improving attention and concentration.  RMT™ also found very beneficial to people with ADHD as it decrease the hyperactivity and impulsivity.

Rhythmic Movement Training™ (RMT) explores the role of babies’ natural developmental movements during various stages of development:

These movements are crucial for laying down the foundations of neural network pathway growth and myelination in the brain. They are also important for establishing head control, muscle tone and posture, the basis of our ability to move through life with ease and choice.

RMT™ works with integrating the retained, or underdeveloped, infant reflexes (also called primitive reflexes or neo-natal reflexes) that are involved in learning challenges such as ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, writing problems, focusing and comprehension challenges, co-ordination difficulties and Asperger’s Syndrome.


Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) originated in Sweden in the 1970s when a self-taught therapist, Kerstin Linde used the observational skills she had developed as a photographer to devise a series of movements based on what infants naturally do in the first months after birth that are rhythmical and start as uncoordinated activities and transition to coordinated movements. She first called her method Rhythmic Movement Pedagogy and later Harmony Doctrine.

RMT International , as founded by Moira Dempsey, continues to expand the original work of Kerstin Linde into a powerful way of working with people of all ages, promoting the integration of postural , sensory , emotional and behavioural challenges, in a safe and gentle way.
