Introduction to Brain Integration Therapy

Brain Integration is based on research that started in the 50’s by medical doctors looking to find out how the brain “learned” activities so that they could help stroke and head injury patients.  They discovered that babies “plugged in” reading/writing/processing/hand-eye coordination by crawling and some common physical movements.  They discovered that when babies skipped steps like crawling, that it affected their reading, writing etc.  Several things can also cause these functions to disconnect:  premature birth; traumatic birth; chronic use of antibiotics; yeast; thyroid issues (usually adults); starting school very early for  boys; other things we can discuss more at length.  Sometimes what is seen as visual or hearing issues is actually not structural, but a processing/wiring issue where those processes never were “plugged in”…think of a lamp.

I see clients, ages 3-93+, the first time for a thorough evaluation that takes up to 3 hours.  I look at visual, auditory, hand-eye, social and emotional issues.  I also look at nutritional and health issues as I used to be a registered nurse.  I help you come up with a dominance learning profile for your child that helps you discover how they best learn (and usually why what you always suspected about your child’s brilliance is probably true!).  Clients usually come away excited about how to use their unique abilities and some tools to use that will help them grow in other areas to make them more balanced.    The first appointment includes the first basic session of repatterning where we help those dendrites/neuron cells to connect or “plug in”, and I give you exercises to work on at home.  After that, I like to see them 10 more times if needed (sometimes they don’t need all 10 sessions).  The last of those sessions is a 6 week follow up to “tweak” any areas that need work. 

What I find is that it is very typical for kids to enter school learning with the right brain and being forced into left brained activities quickly.  When kids hit about 3rd grade they ‘hit the wall’ with some learning disabilities because that is when school takes all the pictures (right brained learning) out of books.  They are also expected to perform at a higher level in their writing and if there are any fine motor or auditory processing issues already, than these issues are aggravated.

    I would love to speak with you more about your program. I have a 12 year old son that has been struggling for several years and I think we really need to have him evaluated. Maura Mitchell referred me to you and I would love to discuss our situation in more detail.

    Hello Jaynee,
    I was watching your videos on YouTube. The information is very good at understanding some of the things I go though on a daily basis. The fight or flight part is something very difficult to work though when learning new things. You explain a part about head injury, this could be part of this because I was hit by a car when I was 10 years old with head injury. Well going to be doing the brain integration excises. Thank you for this new outlook and possible help on what I live with and work on with spelling and writing every day. Yes spelling check on the computer is a fall back. Great video information. And very good assistant.

      Thanks William. I hope you found that helpful. Head Injuries can definitely cause things to become “unplugged”. Brain Integration is a great way to improve that!
