Rhythmic Movement Therapy

Rhythmic Movement Therapy Training (RMT) focuses on developing and integrating the infant’s reflex patterns into smooth, rhythmic movements to enhance development and sensory integration of physical, emotional and cognitive impairments.

As paediatric Occupational Therapists (OTs), we have found great benefit from this therapy and use this method alongside therapy intervention with significant success. To find out more: www.rhythmicmovement.com

Services on offer:

  • RMT assessment of primitive reflexes.

What are Primitive and Postural Reflexes?

Primitive reflexes are essential responses a baby needs in the womb and the first year of life, which are gradually inhibited as the baby develops and is able to communicate and mobilise for survival.

A baby’s movements at birth are not voluntary and are controlled by primitive reflexes such as palmer reflex which is when a baby’s hand will tightly flex when the palm is stimulated. These essential survival primitive reflexes assist with the developmental milestones of movement. These develop into postural reflexes which assist with controlled movements such as head control and crawling. If there is a disturbance in the development and the inhibition of the primitive reflexes, then the baby’s physical, emotional and cognitive abilities may be impaired.
