Major Breakthrough in Helping Retained or Reactivation of These Reflexes
These reflexes surface in the womb and infancy. They act as the first step to development of more sophisticated movements. With the onset of the advanced movements Primitive Reflexes are no longer needed and become inactive.
Problems arise when the Primitive Reflexes remain active beyond the first years of life or are reactivated due to trauma, injury, sickness, virus, stress during pregnancy, traumatic birth, premature birth, early stress after birth, or mental or emotional stress as a result of life’s experiences.
Your brain needs to be able to see, hear, anticipate, deliberate, remember, think, create, communicate, make good decisions, and co-ordinate all at the same time. If not the body may get stressed when there may be no very obvious reason. This then becomes a subconscious habit and leads to further trouble.
Example of more common reactivated reflexes that need correcting in the clinic are:
Symmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex (Retained)
Siting Posture (tendency to slump)
Muscle tone diminished
Inability to sit still
Hand - eye co-ordination diminished
Information through vision not as good
Tense neck muscles
Possible walking on front of foot (toes)
Tired standing upright (stationary)
Often skips crawling
Reading can be difficult
Not breaing down food (digestive enzymes)
Weakness down one side of back
Retained Moro Reflex
Retained Spinal Gallant Reflex
Retained Landau Reflex
