I trained as a Brain Gym Consultant several years ago. As a Montessori teacher I wanted to have practical tools at hand to help the preschoolers in my room who were encountering difficulty in coordination, processing information and other areas like regulating their behaviour.
To begin with the impact of Brain Gym on my own life was phenomenal. Certain Brain Gym activities literally ironed out issues in my own life that I hadn’t even realised were a challenge. It was like getting out of prison! In the greater scheme of things Brain Gym was a total eye opener for me.
How parents manage/or not their child’s physical movement in these early years of critical brain development is crucial for the child going forward.
I now work with physically challenged adults post brain haemorrhage/stroke and again Brain Gym is my port of assistance.
Brain Gym works!
