PTSD ADJUNCT THERAPY
Christina works with counselors in Flagstaff as an adjunct therapist with PTSD clients. This is an outgrowth of several months of evaluation of how Brain Gym® can assist with PTSD clients. The measure of change, tracked through questionnaires, demonstrates that Brain Gym results in significant positive change in these individuals.
BRAIN GYM IN SCHOOLS
Christina offers a monthly or biweekly class, The Brain Train, for students to benefit from therapeutic sequences designed to develop cross-lateral abilities and optimum brain power. There is a strong correlation between a student's behavior and academic success and their cross-lateral skills.
STAND TALL - DON'T FALL ---- A FALL-PREVENTION PROGRAM
Christina offers a weekly class for anyone with balance issues. View flyer.
The National Council on Aging reports that every year one in three US citizens aged 65 and older falls. Falling is the leading cause of injury-related death among people in this age group. Brain Gym® and related sensory-integration motor activities work directly on the brain body system to stimulate efficient and effective gross and fine motor neural patterns to support balance. These simple, adaptable movements integrate the vestibular system (necessary for both static and dynamic balance) with visual, auditory, and kinesthetic systems. This gives balance and focus to seniors.
A typical one-hour session includes:
· Warm Up – Lengthening the muscles and waking up the senses.
· More Active Exercises – Various cross-lateral motor activities, movements that release ingrained motor habits of tension, and energizing gross and fine motor movements.
· Integration Time – Calming movement patterns that sooth the nervous system, allowing it to assimilate what it has just experienced.
· Less Active Exercises – A time to experience daily movements and sensory challenges in a different way as a result of the sensory-integration movements just experienced: walking, seeing, listening, and communicating.
· Final integration and assimilation time – Rest and relax.
