Primitive Reflexes & Rhythmic Movment Therapy RMTi

What are Primitive Reflexes?

We are all born with primitive reflexes that are meant to 'do their job' then go away (integrate). If this is not the case they can act as a barrier to learning, sensory processing, physical development / coordination and emotional maturity.

What is Rhythmic Movement Therapy?

Rhythmic Movement Therapy or RMTi uses small rhythmic movements that address any unintegrated reflexes resulting in everyday tasks becoming easier leading to a happier home, school or work life.

Who can Rhythmic Movement Therpay help?

Everyone! But we see particularly big changes in individuals living with Autism, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Parkinson's, Anxiety, Anger, and general difficulties with reading & writing.  Get in touch to find out how brain & body boost can help.

One to One Services


Initial Consultation

At brain & body boost in Huddersfield, I offer a one hour initial consultation to run through some some information about primitive reflexes and rhythmic movement therapy  along with completing some simple assessments to identify retained primitive reflexes, and for clients to complete a questionnaire. Towards the end of the session I will show clients a few RMTi movements (rhythmic movement therapy) to practice at home before our next consultation.  The movements should be done daily (ideally) and should take no more than a few minutes to start with.


Follow Up Consultations

Approximately 4 weeks after the initial consultation, we meet again to catch up on any changes since we last met and any benefits from the movements and then review the rhythmic movements given.  We then look at some additional movements to address the retained reflexes and any other useful strategies and tools.  This consultation lasts around 40 minutes. 


Growth Work & Report

After each consultation I will provide a Growth Work summary (movements to practice at home) as a reminder of the movements we have done in the consultation.  After the initial consultation, I will provide a full report detailing my findings from the assessment.

About Me

My Background


I was introduced to Rhythmic Movement Therapy by a local charity and further enthused by a fantastic RMTi Consultant.  After attending some training to help my son, who happens to have Down Syndrome, I was bowled over by the number of people this therapy can help with these simple yet powerful movements. 

My Experience


Now a fully qualified RMTi Consultant, I love helping children and adults overcome their challenges, which can include: Anxiety, Anger, Autism, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Parkinson's, learning difficulties, depression, focus & concentration difficulties, and general delays in reading & writing. List list is not exhaustive so please get in touch to find out if I can help you.

About Me


When I'm not working I enjoy exercising and spending time with my young family  - outdoors, at the cinema, enjoying music, and eating good food!




"He is like a different child Kate!! He does the infinity exercise and the original exercises completely off his own back now if he gets stressed! He can talk to me when he realises he is getting stressed but they are so few and far between!!" Quote from Mum of a 9 year old boy with suspected high functioning autism

“I have Parkinson’s Disease [MSA]. Symptoms include poor balance, poor eyesight, poor sleep pattern, gait freezing, etc....I was extremely sceptical about the theories behind Rhythmic Movement. However I have now been trying the prescribed exercises aimed at the areas of the brain most affected (Basal Ganglia causing problems with movement, Cerebellum causing poor balance and coordination, Brain stem causing autonomic problems such as poor bladder and blood pressure control) for a couple of months and have improvements in my symptoms.  My sleep pattern [early waking] has improved [without drugs]. My eyesight problems [ataxia of eyelids] have been alleviated. I still have bad days and better ones, but on the whole I feel better.” Quote from a 72 year old man diagnosed with Parkinson's (MSA)
