When we’re stressed, the brain tries to find a way to cope with the pressure we feel. When it is unable to do so, we go through learning difficulties, suffer from a short attention span, and experience poor coordination. These conditions can happen to anyone, from young children to adults.
One of the ways to mitigate the signs and symptoms of stress is through brain integration therapy (BIT). This method has been proven to be one of the best techniques for correcting learning difficulties and behavioral issues.
What is brain integration therapy?
Brain integration therapy is a drug-free and non-invasive technique to help the brain function better. It combines kinesiology, acupressure, and physiology in order to correct a variety of learning disabilities like dyslexia, attention deficit disorder (ADD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Kinesiology is the study of muscles and how they can be used to restore the body’s equilibrium.
Also known as the Crossinology Brain Integration Technique (BIT), the non-invasive method “rewires” the brain by working around learning difficulties and boosting brain functions to achieve optimum results.
How can it help children?
Children who have trouble reading, writing, speaking, planning, balancing, and concentrating due to learning disabilities will benefit the most from brain integration therapy. The benefits of brain integration therapy for children are:
- Improved memory and concentration
Children with learning disabilities often have poor memory and focus. If left untreated for a long time, it could lead to educational and personal problems. Brain integration therapy aims to restore memory and concentration to the child by pressing on specific pressure points throughout the body.
- Improved spelling and reading skills
Children with learning disabilities find reading to be very difficult because it takes them a few tries to understand what they’re reading. After brain integration therapy, children can now comprehend their reading material after only one try.
- Improved balance and coordination
Brain integration therapy also restores the functional balance between the brain’s left and right hemispheres. The treatment succeeds in actually improving the physical balance of children, giving them the ability to control their own bodies when they stumble or fall.
- Ability to perform tasks better
Because of the improved concentration resulting from brain integration therapy, children rarely get as distracted when performing their tasks. They can successfully complete an assignment without feeling frustrated or stressed.
- A clearer mind
Most patients report that after finishing a BIT session, they instantly feel more relaxed and peaceful.
- Improved sleeping habits
Children with learning disabilities also tend to lack sleep and have irregular sleeping patterns. The relaxed and calm feeling that comes after a brain integration therapy session eliminates the restlessness children feel when they’re trying to go to sleep.
- Newfound confidence and self-esteem
When children realize that they now have an easier time doing the simple tasks they struggled with before, it boosts their confidence and self-esteem. They now approach their tasks with more confidence and complete them without any struggle or help.
Brain integration therapy can strengthen the mind and body in no time. If you’re looking to try BIT for yourself or for a loved one, check out our Brain Integration page to find out more or give us a call at 617.328.6300.
