About Rhythmic Movement Therapy

The Concept

We each hold a story within our body

We each hold a story within our body: it is the tale of our conception, of our birth journey, of how we arrived, of how we felt, and what we experienced during each of these phases.

Later, the story will expand to include our very early experiences: how we feel about the world we have arrived in, how our body reacts to food, touch, sound, light…

The chapters of our ‘Life Story’ evolve as we experience events, challenges and situations. They all leave their mark upon us, and we need them to help shape us, and to allow growth and development, as this is how we forge our unique way in the world.

But, if a challenging experience leaves a significant impression on us . . .

But if a challenging experience leaves a significant impression on us we may relive it, revisit it, and find ourselves stuck in a loop which replays in different areas of our life. This can occur at any stage in our story.

We may not be aware of this reoccurrence of held memory; and as a parent we may see our child react to situations impulsively and subconsciously, as though they are not in control. 

They may show levels of anxiety or distress…all without being able to verbalise or explain how they are feeling or why they have reacted this way.

This is when Aqua Spiralis can help to find out where the problem lies, explore the learned response to physical or emotional events, and reset it to a positive one, using Rhythmic Movement Training.

What is Rhythmic Movement Therapy?

It all starts with those primitive reflexes

Primitive and postural reflexes are developed in our very early babyhood and childhood. They should all have played their parts, and finished operating, by the time we are about 4.

With Rhythmic Movement Training, we revisit these early years of development, find out which of the reflexes may have been missed, or needed more time to develop and integrate, and give them a second chance to do what they were supposed to do.

We work through the reflex timeline, and figure out where a challenge may have come up – physically or mentally – that caused this reflex’s bump in the road. We work back through the layers, explore the problem, and find a way to process it, let go and move on from the repetitive patterns that are holding you back.

We have two programmes, and different approaches, depending on your age:
1. for babies and young children
2. one for older children and adults.
