What is reflex integration therapy?
According to the Journal of Neurology and Neuroscience, reflex integration therapy is defined as “a novel and non-invasive method of improving developmental delays and central nervous system function in children with a variety of developmental disabilities. This method addresses disorders with a neurologic component, and it is based on the concept that unconditioned reflexes are not static and facilitate adaptation to the external environment, while becoming the foundation for physical, emotional, and cognitive development.
Unconditioned reflexes, such as Babkin Palmomental, Babinski, Spinal Galant, and Perez are innate, genetically-based traits that are required for survival by all individuals…An assumption of the NRI therapeutic modality is that if the reflex arc of sensory input, brain processing, and motor response is complete, and the various reflexes are neurologically mature (myelinated), then physical, emotional and cognitive functions will function normally. Alternatively, emotional outbursts, cognitive deficiencies, or atypical movement patterns may occur if there are deficiencies in the interpretation of sensory information or motor responses are abnormal.”
Reflex integration therapy has been known to relieve symptoms and help with a various range of pediatric neurological disorders, including, but not limited to:
- Brain injuries
- Down Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Pediatric Pain
