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.
Developed by Dr Harald Blomberg a psychiatrist in Stockholm, Sweden after studying with Kirsten Linde, a self taught therapist in Stockholm, and Peter Blythe from INPP in Chester, England – these gentle rocking and rolling movements are based on the developmental movements babies naturally make before birth and during the first year of life. These movements are combines with the powerful kinesiology balancing techniques to promote integration of structural and emotional challenges in a safe, gentle way.
Rhythmic Movement Training works at integrating infant reflex patterns through replicating developmental movements, gentle isometric pressure and self awareness. Movements comprise gentle rocking and rolling movements that stimulate the neural pathways, to make connections that promote ease of movement and learning.
In this 2-day course, participants learn the basics of the Rhythmic Movement Training: How rhythmic movements can be used to assist in regulating muscle tone; stimulating the connections between the cerebellum and the neocortex, especially the frontal lobes in order to improve attention and control impulses. The course also includes examining the role of the primitive reflexes in development, and how to integrate them using rhythmic movements and isometric pressure.
