what is RMT?
Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) is dedicated to bringing tremendous benefits to children and adults with challenges including:
- coordination difficulties
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Parkinson’s disease and stroke
RMT looks at the role of developmental movements that babies naturally make
- Before birth
- The first six months after birth
- As they get up on their hands and knees
- As they learn to walk
RMT looks at how these movements are crucial in laying down the foundations for neural network pathway growth and myelinisation in the brain, and its effect on learning as we grow and develop, and come to rely on the lifelong postural reflexes. It works with integrating the retained, or underdeveloped, infant reflexes that are involved in learning challenges such as ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, writing problems, focussing and comprehension challenges, co-ordination difficulties and Asperger’s Syndrome.
RMT has also been successful in working with people with anxiety, panic, emotional imbalances, behavioural problems, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s, psychosis and general overwhelm.

RMT Level 1 (RMT and ADD/ADHD)
In this 2-day course participants learn the basics of the Rhythmic Movement Training: how rhythmic movements can be used to assist in regulating muscle tone; stimulating the connections between the cerebellum and the neocortex, especially the frontal lobes in order to improve attention and control impulses. The course also includes examining the role of the primitive reflexes in development, and how to integrate them using rhythmic movements and isometric pressure.
Participants in this class have been teachers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists/physical therapists, behavioural optomotrists, vision trainers, kinesiologists, Brain Gym instructors, doctors, nurses, early childhood specialists etc. Course content includes:

RMT Level 2 (RMT & The Limbic System)
This 1-day course addresses how the rhythmic movement training affects our emotions, how to work with movements to get in touch with our emotions and to stabilise them when they threaten to take control. It also examines how stress and daily life affects our body and how the rhythmic movements can help to relax and ease muscle tension. It is a necessary supplement for anyone who wishes to work with rhythmic movement training. The course also deals with rhythmic movement training in autism and psychosis. Course content includes:
Emotional Development and RMT
Moro Reflex and Emotions
Motor Function and the Limbic System
Movements for Emotional Development
Muscle Tension and Repressed Feelings
Movements to Relax Muscle Tension and Release Feelings
Movement for the Limbic System
Movements for the Spine
The Importance of Play
Emotional Reactions to RMT
Frontal Lobes the Limbic System and RMT
Autism and RMT
