Using, and training, the haller method for influencing neuroplasticity
Pediatric Occupational Therapy Clinic
Cardinal Capers and RMTi
"RMTi is based on the work of Kerstin Linde, a Swedish movement training specialist, who developed movements based on her observations of how infants are meant to move.
The movements in Rhythmic Movement Training International are based on replicating the movements that infants naturally make. In pure RMTi sessions we work at using these movements to integrate the reflexes so that learning, communication, behaviour, emotional and general well-being can be given the opportunity to be accessed and developed.
Licensed RMTi Consultants either use RMTi movement and integration techniques by themselves or can use these movements in conjunction with other techniques and modalities. There is usually an assessment of the active reflexes, and then a series of activities given to help the system change from stressed posture to a more natural and easy way of moving. This promotion of easy learning and whole brain-body development has been effective with people all over the world. There have been many instances of positive shifts and change as these reflexes integrate and we form a proper basis for moving and learning.
The movements are easy to learn and parents find that they are straightforward to use at home. Children like them and find them beneficial. Adults also find them easy to remember to do."
