What is Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT)?  It is a movement based, primitive (infant or neo-natal) reflex integration program that uses developmental movements, gentle isometric pressure and self-awareness to rebuild the foundations necessary to help overcome sensory, emotional and behavioral challenges for children and adults.

Who provides rhythmic movement training?  Pediatric occupational and physical therapists can become trained in rhythmic movement training.  Other practitioners can also be trained such as speech language pathologists, parents, teachers, etc.

How does RMT help children develop sensory motor skills?  The active movements facilitate bilateral coordination skills, muscle strengthening, mid range control and balance skills.  In addition, the repetitive, rhythmic movements provide vestibular input which many children find very calming and relaxing to help prepare the body for learning new skills.

Where can you get trained in RMT? Move Play Thrive is currently offering an online RMT course with open enrollment until 10/31/17. This online training will help you to learn in-depth, extensive tools to facilitate effective neuro-sensory-reflex movement programs for all ages. Find out more at the Move Play Thrive website.
