Primitive Reflex Integration

Primitive Reflexes

Involuntary motor responses to eye and head movements which are generally present in an infant. These reflexes are suppressed by the development of higher brain centers with age to execute actions without any obligatory muscle tone. The persistence of these reflexes in early childhood leads to delayed development, awkward movement patterns, difficulty in reading and learning, and may cause secondary deformities.

How does primitive reflex integration work?

By applying the principles of NeuroPlasticity and utilizing the five sensory components, pathways are created to reach the brain’s higher centers, which will allow the suppression of primitive reflexes, thus helping the child to perform functional movements effortlessly and with more fluidity.
