The Anat Baniel Method (ABM) uses movement and touch to create the specific conditions required by the brain to re-program itself and provide solutions to pain and injury bringing about health, healing, and well-being.
Movement organizes the brain. Research shows that 98% of the activity of the brain is devoted to movement. Anat Baniel has created a scientifically based approach that intentionally and systematically uses movement to activate the neuroplasticity of the brain. This plasticity accesses our ability to reorganize and create favorable new neurological patterns.
The Anat Baniel Method (ABM) accesses the remarkable capacity of the human brain to form new connections and new patterns and reach levels of performance never achieved before.
AWAKEN THE BRAIN TO TRANSFORM LIMITATIONS
The Anat Baniel MethodSM (ABM) for Children
ABM for Children is scientifically based and the results have been validated by medical doctors. The practitioner of this method uses gentle, innovative techniques to help the brain of the special needs child form new neural connections and patterns that take the child beyond their current limitations and improve brain function.
Movement and awareness are the main tools utilized for communicating with the brain, providing information the brain requires in order to form missing neural patterns, pathways and connections that lead to new possibilities for movement, thought and feeling.
Almost always, regardless of the specific diagnosis, the child's brain is available for potent learning due to its plasticity. It is through this learning process that children with diverse developmental issues can benefit from the Anat Baniel Method for Children. This method can be applied at any age, however, early intervention has generally proven to provide the quickest and most far reaching results.
Children with the following conditions, as well as other neurological difficulties can benefit from this work: * Cerebral Palsy/Stroke * Brachial Plexis Injury * Genetic/Chromosomal Disorders * Child Autism Spectrum Disorders * Birth Injuries/Neurological Issues * Developmental Delays * Scoliosis * Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
