What is Rhythmic Movement Training?

RMT is particularly useful for children and adults with challenges including ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, coordination difficulties, developmental, speech and learning delays, sensory processing disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders and many other challenges.

Therapists, Parents, and Educators
LOVE what these movements can do:

We’ve seen profound changes in our two daughters since we’ve been doing RMT. They are happier, healthier, less emotionally volatile and better able to focus on schoolwork. Our teen daughter was highly reactive to loud noises. Now she is far less sensitive, more outgoing with her peers, and much more calm.
~ Judy S.

I am amazed at the immediate changes in severely involved autistic children. The calming and eye contact has been amazing. Also, a child with a past history of dyslexia and dyspraxia, is showing excellent eye teaming improvements with the exercises.
~ Maxine Hoffman, PT, Ohio

We are already starting to see some results in our son who was brain damaged as an infant. His memory and his confidence are increasing and the movements have a calming affect on him... His teacher has noticed a change in him also...
~Tiffany Hill Fallbrook, California

RMT provided for me "the missing piece" in my practice of school-based OT.
Becky Beals, OT, Michigan

History and Track Record of RMT

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 effective program that is taught by a network of certified instructors worldwide through RMT International. See www.rhythmicmovement.org

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.
