This is a four-day Intensive class covering HANDS-ON, EXPERIENTIAL TRAINING in Neuroplasticity. You will learn the first steps of creating Neuroplastic cascades -  establishing connectivity - throughout the body and then building the neural nets in the Brain Stem, Cerebellum and Basal Ganglia using techniques established by developmental therapists. 

Including Reflex Emergence, Integration, Trauma Release and non-invasive developmental techniques that improve, restore or optimize function.
