    As I facilitate and work with every one of various age groups with various forms of disability and need, I learn that NEUROPLASTICITY is a lifelong process. It is a great opportunity to discover self-awareness as ITS ALL ABOUT CONNECTIONS and making reasonable and rational sense of them. Since my introduction to these simple self-care techniques I am better able to provide for myself, family, friends and people I come in contact with. I continue to learn with great in-depth knowledge and experience with meaningful opportunities working with children and adults of ALL ABILITIES and people with learning, behavioral and emotional challenges.

About The Course

Two classes are taught as one unit

This class is usually 3 days, however sometimes 4 days (at the discretion of the instructor). It covers the curriculum of both level one and two. Please refer to those levels for information.

You will still be able to attend either the level one or level two component of the class. Ask the instructor for details.

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.

Topic include:

  • How RMT builds neuro-sensory-motor foundations for focus and higher level learning skills
  • Basics in brain development for learning , attention and comprehension
  • Ways to identify developmental imbalances
  • Information on a selection of reflexes involved in laying the foundations of focus and comprehension -Tonic Labyrinthine (TLR); Landau; Symmetrical Tonic Neck (STNR); Spinal Galant; Amphibian; Babinski
  • Methods for integrating primitive reflexes
  • The 17 foundational RMT passive and active movements.

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.

Topics include:

  • Methods for integrating Fear Paralysis and Moro Reflexes
  • Basics on motor function and the limbic system
  • How to release muscle tension and emotional upset
  • Using RMT to increase brain connectivity to the frontal lobes
  • Movements to release anxiety and stored emotional and physical tension
  • Ways to support people with SPD and ASD using RMT
  • Precautions and possible reactions and contraindications
