Biomechanical approach

Rhythmic movement training (RMT)

RMT stands for Rhythmic Movement Training; educational process aimed at integrating primitive reflexes. These reflexes form the "foundations" from which the body can perform all other movements, and rightly so, they play a fundamental role in brain maturation and physical, emotional, and cognitive development.   Here is what can happen if these reflexes are not integrated or not developed: Hyporeflexive reflexes: If some reflexes are poorly developed, this leads to postural deficits and learning difficulties (difficult pencil holding or laborious writing, loss of balance, poor motivation, spatial difficulties, etc.). Reflexes are developed but remain active: They are triggered unexpectedly.   LEVEL 1: RMTi FOR ATTENTION, ORGANIZATION AND UNDERSTANDING This first level makes it possible to recognize and understand the impact of primitive reflexes on attention disorders with or without hyperactivity.     LEVEL 2: RMTi FOR EMOTIONS, MEMORY AND BEHAVIOR In this second level, the impact of primitive reflexes on the development of the emotional sphere is discussed.   This course leads to a certification of consultants in Rhythmic Movements RMTi®

  • To learn the 17 rhythmic movements.
