At BodyLink we are able to treat a range of symptoms and complaints using the Neurological Integration System (NIS). This is suitable for the whole family. Furthermore we offer the INPP method to help children with learning, co-ordination and behavioral difficulties.
Learning Difficulties and the INPP method
This assessment consists of extensive non-invasive neurological tests which assess a number of skills such as:
Patterns of motor development
Visual perception and motor integration
The Assessment, at which the parent/caregiver also needs to be present, takes approximately 2 hours. At the end of the assessment, a verbal report will be given. A home programme involving a daily physical exercise is prescribed, based on the assessment findings. These movements and exercises have been devised to stimulate maturation within the Central Nervous System. An assessment report will be sent out within two weeks after the assessment.
The treatment comprises of a series of physical exercises based on early movements made by the developing child in the first year(s) of life. The exercises are designed to retrain the reflex pathways, inhibiting primitive reflexes and developing postural reflexes, thereby helping to improve the control of balance, posture, voluntary movement, visual functioning and perceptual abilities.
A typical exercise programme will take about 5 minutes a day over a period of 12 months. Progress is reviewed at 8-weekly intervals and exercises are changed when appropriate. Reviews take approximately 45 minutes.
Neurological Integration System
At BodyLink we aim to provide individualized, holistic health care that is suited to your needs. Treatments are non-invasive, stress and pain-free so they are suitable for anyone from birth to older adults.
The initial appointment takes 1 hour where a complete body assessment and treatment is carried out. A follow up session is recommended 1 week after the initial consultation. Follow ups take around 30 minutes depending on the complexity of the complaint. After each session the practitioner will assess the body's progress and advise the amount of time between each treatment (Typically 2 - 3 weeks apart).
Once the original complaint is resolved, routine check-ups every 3 – 6 months are recommended to ensure the body continues to function as its optimum. We are constantly putting our bodies under stress, both environmentally and physically, so quarterly check-ups will ensure that small issues today do not develop into larger issues in the future.
