I would like to quote an article that I was sent by the instructors on the Brain Gym course I was on (sorry to bore you with Brain Gym again but this is a classic)
Svetlana K. Musgutova (2001) 'Progress at the Ascension Institute in Moscow, Russia', Brain Gym Journal (publication details unknown)
"Two Case Studies Involving Infant Reflexes
Case 1. I worked with a four-year old boy who was paralyzed. Mihal couldn't walk or speak; he could only lie down, as he had poor motor coordination and a lack of reflex development. His loving parents did everything possible to help him develop his intellect, and thanks to them he could do some puzzles geared for a nine-month-old child. I began working with Mihal using the Brain Gym exercises, and emphasizing the Cross Crawl. I felt that he needed the active Cross Crawls, so I asked his mother to assist by pushing against his limbs as he did the movements. The next day Mihal moved on his own, trying to repeat the pushing pattern. "Listening" to his nonverbal communications, I pushed against all parts of his body. Then I understood that he needed to be raised to an upright position. When Mihal was standing upright, his body hung limp. I gently straightened his knees and back and he automatically pushed the floor with his feet, raised his head, and . . . began to walk. Step by step, we went to the balcony, where the red roses grew. He saw the flowers and shouted with joy, and with his whole body demanded to continue walking in that direction. After several more steps, he smelled the roses and shouted with joy again. After that day, Mihal persistently demanded further training in walking."
Wow, isn't Brain Gym wonderful. The key phrase in this extract, I feel, is "the next day"
