Does your child/teen find it difficult to concentrate, hold a pencil, hold themselves upright or fidget?
Do they have problems with balance and co-ordination?
Has your child been diagnosed with autism, ADHD, dyslexic or dyspraxia?
Does your child have anxiety, sleep disorders or mood swings?
Do they dislike labels on clothes or certain textures against skin, are fussy with different texture of foods, cling onto things, walk on tip toes, need to move around when trying to concentrate or sticking tongue out when writing.
These can all be signs of unintegrated or retained primitive reflexes.
So what are Primitive Reflexes?
What happens if these reflexes are retained?
Retained primitive reflexes can lead to struggles related to disorders like ADHD, sensory processing disorder, autism, and learning disabilities. The persistence of primitive reflexes contributes to issues such as coordination, balance, sensory perceptions, fine motor skills, sleep, immunity, energy levels, impulse control, concentration, and all levels of social, emotional, and academic learning.
Craniosacral therapy can focus on supporting the body to integrate these reflexes and with the addition on some rhythmic movements that parents and children can do easily at home. These movements are simple, straightforward and always only the ones the child likes to do.
