Blomberg rhythmic movement therapy
What it is?
Blomberg Rhythmic Movement Therapy (BRMT) is based on the natural rhythmic movements of infants that have been adapted for children and adults. These exercises have a highly effective effect on the brain.
How it works?
In Blomberg’s rhythmic movement therapy classes, much attention is paid to the integration of primitive reflexes. Because these reflexes should have been formed early in development and then integrated, in many people, both children and adults, they remain unintegrated and cause symptoms.
– Dyslexia and reading difficulties;
– Bad posture;
– Poor hand-eye coordination;
– Weak balance;
– Weak coordination;
– Problems with laterality and cross movements;
– Bad posture when writing;
– Enuresis, sphincter control problems;
– Problems with attention and concentration;
– Motion sickness in transport;
– Behavior problems, excessive shyness or aggressiveness;
– Poor speech development, delayed speech development, difficulty in pronunciation of words;
– Hypersensitivity to light, touch, visual and kinesthetic stimuli;
– Illiteracy, poor handwriting;
– Slight distraction;
– Problems with the organization;
– And much more.
These exercises encourage:
Brain stem, cerebellum, basal ganglia, prefrontal cortex through vestibular sense, propioceptive sense, sense of touch. Stimulation of the brain stem leads to an increase in the excitation of the cortex, an improvement in muscle tone, and stimulation of spontaneous children’s movements. Stimulation of the cerebellum results in improved prefrontal cortex function as well as executive function; improving the functioning of the language areas of the cerebral cortex and improving language and speech. Stimulation of the basal ganglia leads to the integration of primitive reflexes; development of posture reflexes; reduction of hyperactivity.
Exercises are included in the course of sensorimotor correction. After the diagnosis, the specialist determines which exercises the child needs and consistently performs them in a passive or active form. The duration of one lesson is up to 45 minutes.
