Rhythmic Movement Training June 21-23 in Calgary


You are invited to an excellent training course for helping children, teens, and adults with neurodevelopmental, sensory, and rehabilitation challenges.

Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) consists of gentle rocking and reflex integration movements that profoundly stimulate the brain, increase neural connections, and promote calm, learning, and sensory integration.

See brief video, case studies & related research links below.

The Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) course was developed by psychiatrist, Harald Blomberg, MD and kinesiologist, Moira Dempsey, co-authors of the book, Movements That Heal.

Using these simple yet profound movements, we are seeing tremendous gains in for children and adults. RMT is especially excellent for individuals who have challenges with:

sensory processing disorders
cerebral palsy
sleep challenges
visual processing
anxiety, depression
underfunctioning, low self-esteem
poor stamina
emotional outbursts
speech delay
learning challenges

Read what OTs and PTs are saying about Rhythmic Movement Training:

"RMT provides such usable information. The results are so quick and powerful. In 45 years of doing Physical Therapy, these are the most valuable tools I've ever learned."-Maxine Hoffman, PT Dayton, Ohio

"RMT provides the "missing piece" in my practice of school based OT"-Becky Beals, OT Ionia, Michigan

"Great information and the key to work with clients and help them." Michelle Mintz, OT W. Bloomfield, Michigan

Rhythmic Movement Training is being offered in Calgary, Alberta, taught by Sonia Story, certified RMT Instructor, on June 21-23, 2013.

RMT was originally developed in Sweden by movement therapist, Kerstin Linde.  It was later expanded upon by psychiatrist Harald Blomberg, MD who initially learned about movement to help with his own motor coordination difficulties resulting from childhood polio. Dr. Blomberg was astounded to find that the rhythmic movements helped his psychiatric patients recover from psychosis
and schizophrenia. Dr. Blomberg and Moira Dempsey combined the rhythmic movements with in-depth reflex integration techniques for an even more effective program that is taught by a network of certified trainers worldwide through RMT International.

For over 30 years these simple yet profound movements have been helping children and adults overcome learning, sensory, motor, emotional, social, mental health, physical and behavioral challenges.

Thank you for your interest in this program and please let your friends and colleagues know about it too.

Warm regards,
