Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) is dedicated to bringing integration and balance to children and adults with specific learning challenges (including ADD/ADHD, dyslexia and autism), motor problems, postural imbalances, emotional and behavioural problems and general life overwhelm.
The movements used in Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) were originally developed in the 1970s by self-taught therapist Kerstin Linde. These gentle rocking and rolling movements are based on Kerstin’s observation of the movements a baby naturally makes before and during birth, as well as those throughout the first year of life. Since then the program has been expanded to included a deeper understanding of the role of movement in development and its connection to primitive reflex integration and neural development.
The courses taught by Rhythmic Movement Training International (RMTi), founded by Moira Dempsey, combine the rhythmic movements with in-depth reflex integration techniques into an effective program that is taught world-wide by a growing network of certified trainers. All RMTi courses 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.
RMTi -Level One
In this 2-day course, participants learn the basics of the Rhythmic Movement Training: How rhythmic movements assist in integrating reflexes; Why this is important ; and What to do stimulate brain connections for increased impulse control, attention, balance, coordination, stamina and learning.
RMTi – Level Two
In this 1 – day course, participant learn effective RMT techniques for integrating developmental reflexes that are crucially important for sensory integration as well as social and emotional maturity.
