Become a qualified Rhythmic Movement Training (RMTi) Consultant
(or take courses on an ad hoc basis)
Are you working with individuals of any age with cognitive, emotional, sensory-motor and behavioural issues? Would you like to be able to add developmental tools to your skillset? RMTi is a system of primitive and postural reflex integration that will help you identify physiological issues which may underpin the challenges your clients face. Those who cannot sit still, struggle to read and write, are unable to successfully build relationships with peers, are fearful of trying new things, have speech and language or balance and co-ordination issues or have a diagnosis of ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia or Autism can be helped on their developmental journeys by using simple movements to reduce stress and assist them in navigating their life challenges.
We are now able to offer a full training track and support to become a qualified RMTi Consultant in the North of England. Attending all 6 courses and completing the licensing requirements of RMT International will allow you to register with the RMTi Foundation in the US and be able to charge for your services.

*Training Track Courses
Level 2—Emotions, Memory & Behaviour
This 1-day course addresses how the Rhythmic Movement Training affects our emotions, how to work with movements to get in touch with our emotions and to stabilise them when they threaten to take control. It also examines how stress and daily life affects our body and how the rhythmic movements can help to relax and ease muscle tension. It is a necessary supplement for anyone who wishes to work with rhythmic movement training.
Level 3—Reading & Writing
This 2-day course deals with how our reading and writing ability is affected by various factors such as our vision, our ability to recognise the sounds of the language and our motor ability. We learn how to check for non integrated primitive reflexes and recognise other motor disabilities that are important in reading difficulties, and how to improve reading and writing ability by correcting imbalances with rhythmic movements and reflex
Prerequisites—Levels 1 & 2
The aim of this course is to investigate how movement, both before and after birth, is important for laying the foundations of neural development and organisation and how we can use activities that replicate these innate movements to assist in developing brain maturity. Learn how the rhythmic movements stimulate the connections between all areas of the brain in order to function efficiently, and to form the basis of becoming a competent and curious learner. No prerequisites.
This 2-day class focusses on using Rhythmic Movements with groups as well as looking at how to identify when primitive reflexes are not integrated. The class looks at using activities and games to introduce the movements to children, as well as developing your own activities and games. No prerequisites
Face the Fear
In this class we examine the role the Fear Paralysis and the reflexes that are connected to the second stage of Moro relate to establishing a sense of stability and security, and how they are important for bonding and attachment, communication and language development.
Prerequisites– Levels 1 & 2
