This class will address retained and reoccurring neonatal and general reflexes in children and adults.

Many children and adults have neurological disorders, learning disabilities or cognitive challenges. Studies show these individuals often have retained reflexes or may have reoccurring neonatal/primary reflexes. Optimally, these reflexes are inhibited/integrated in the first months of life. Children can keep their primary reflexes for longer than necessary for optimal development. Neonatal reflex inhibition allows for more sophisticated neurological structures to develop. 

Adults can see the reoccurrence of these neonatal / developmental reflexes in many pathologies, including trauma, whiplash, PTSD, Parkinson’s, stroke, dementia, etc.

Retained and reoccurring reflexes can create numerous neurological dysfunctions, learning disabilities and sensory integration dysfunctions.

In children, these primary reflexes can be found in learning disabilities, processing disorders / sensory integration dysfunctions, trauma, PTSD, cerebral palsyADD/ ADHD, problems with focus and concentration, vestibular integration issues, balance issues, poor postural control, social skills issues, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia / developmental coordination disorders, speech development disorders, speech language delays, auditory and visual processing, autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome (trisomy), etc.

 

There are approximately 28 neonatal reflexes present at birth. We will go over a lot of these reflexes and few permanent reflexes (lifelong reflexes), including Fear Paralysis Reflex (FPR), Moro Reflex, Tendon Guard Reflex (TGR), Palmar Reflex, Tonic Labyrinthine Reflex (TLR) forward and backward, Symmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex (STNR), Asymmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex (ATNR),  Spinal Galant Reflex, Pereze / Pulgar Marx Reflex / Vollmer Reflexes, Babkin Palmo-Mental Reflex, Hand Pulling Reflex, Crossed extension Reflex, Babinski Reflex, Landau Reflex, Amphibian Reflex, Parachute Reflex, Rooting Reflex, etc.

 

In this class you will use quick, specific and efficient manual therapy techniques to inhibit these primary / infant reflexes. Inhibitory movement patterns will be presented.

This class will address retained and reoccurring neonatal and general reflexes in children and adults.

Many children and adults have neurological disorders, learning disabilities, cognitive challenges that can be traced back to retained or reoccurring primitive reflexes.

Children can keep their primary reflexes for longer than expected.

Adults can see the reoccurrence of primitive or dysfunction of primitive reflexes in many pathologies, including trauma, PTSD, Parkinson’s, dementia etc..

These retained and reoccurring reflexes can create numerous neurological dysfunctions and learning disabilities, sensory processing disorder / sensory integration dysfunction.

These reflexes can be found in Autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, speech development disorders, speech language delay, sensory processing disorder / sensory integration dysfunction, ADD/ ADHD, CP, trauma, PTSD, ADHD, auditory and visual processing, problems with focus and concentration, vestibular integration, balance issues, poor postural control, social skills issues, stroke, Parkinson, dementia, some response on Down syndrome (trisomy), etc.

Prior to seeing to Dr. Bruno our son (5 years old) was experiencing elongated tantrums, sensory issues and an inability to focus on simple tasks and in social settings.   Chase was evaluated by a local therapist in our area and was diagnosed with a brain imbalance.  In seeking treatment, our family elected to travel to Arizona to work with Dr. Bruno as opposed to enrolling in a 6 month program with the local therapist, who's cost was $13,000.  After just 3 sessions with Dr.Bruno over the course of 7 days, we began to see immediate results and positive changes in my son's day-to-day behavior, attitude and personality.  We continue to work with my son on a daily basis utilizing the exercise program that Dr. Bruno prepared for him and feel blessed to have found a non-pharmaceutical treatment method to aid in his mental development.  We continually hear from friends, family, teachers and classmates how much our son has developed over the past year and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to meet and work with Dr. Bruno.

As a pediatrician, I regularly check a few reflexes in my patients.  However, Dr Chikly's reflex class  deepened my understanding of the neonatal reflexes, and more importantly, gave me the tools to treat my patients who have negative symptoms because of retained primitive reflexes, right in my office. 

In the past, my only treatment option was to send them to do Brain Gym for 6-24 months and hundreds to thousands of dollars to resolve these retained reflexes.  My patients families are thrilled with the results.
