Retained Primitive Reflexes and Osteopathy

I wanted to share my experience (and frustration) to see whether it may benefit others who have special needs children. I have a 7 year old daughter and 5 year old son. My daughter has recently been diagnosed (after years of trying) with Severe learning difficulties. My son is also likely to have the same as most likely genetic although awaiting a diagnosis for him. I have been doing lots of research (as you do!) and started looking at information on retained primitive reflexes and its treatment. I have always been a bit dismissive of alternative treatments, etc so it's not something I've ever really acknowledged before but having exhausted everything else at our disposal thought maybe it's worth a try! We are on our second session with Lyn Bridgeford at Horam Natural Therapy Centre and so far it's been a really positive experience. I still have my reservations but the more I read, the more it pieces together into a plausible and logical argument. Lyn is brilliant with my uncooperative and difficult son who just wants to eat throughout! She listens and understands everything I say (and can offer an explanation as well!) and it's actually a lovely bonding time with my son too. i think its such a shame and frustrating that information relating to learning difficulties and osteopathy in children is so minimal when something so simple could help unlock so much learning potential, it took me 5 years of research to finally come across one article that mentioned retained primitive reflexes which could so easily have benefited my children years ago had I known about it. I'd be really interested to here anyone else's experiences and whether they found it beneficial? If you haven't heard about it either then I'd recommend looking it up and would highly recommend Lyn too.

Excellent post! We too are doing RR therapy and have definitely noticed a difference. Can you tell me how Lyn works?
