When a Primitive Reflex has been integrated the changes in child behaviour are always noticeable. You will have removed several layers of stress from your child. As a result your child will be:

  • Calmer and more stable
  • Happier
  • Less Shy
  • Less Aggressive
  • Improved coordination
  • Have improved spelling, writing and comprehension
  • Have better coordination

Primitive and Postural Reflexes are programmed automatic movements which develop in Utero for our survival.

An example is the Moro reflex, which allows a newborn to take its first breath. Problems arise if the reflex is retained, as the body is held in ‘fight or flight’ mode. As a baby grows up, this primitive reflex is replaced by newly learned movements, in a process of integration.

However, when the process of integration is not complete, the reflex will have an adverse effect on a child’s emotional well-being as well as how the child learns and behaves.

Barry works with children & teens specializing particularly with those experiencing anxiety, low motivation, anger & frustration, concentration issues and sleeping problems.

​​​​​​​A comprehensive assessment is carried out on the first consultation. This will give a clear picture of what is going on for each child from a physical literacy perspective. Very gentle kinesiology and craniosacral techniques are used to integrate each reflex. Most children find it a very relaxing experiencing and usually “feel lighter” or a little tired after the session. This is very natural as it is stress leaving the body and the nervous system begins to relax.

Each client will receive a specific daily home movement programme to further deepen each session.

Barry is on hand to act as a continuous support in assisting your child to feel CONFIDENT, RELAXED & HAPPIER from the inside out!
