Exercises

If a reflex is not fully matured, its development can be furthered through coaching. As with developing any skill, breaking it down into its components, building function in those parts, and then integrating the parts back into the whole, is an effective strategy. The resolution of the deconstruction is a key starting point. If the reflex is not integrating, finer resolution is likely required. The Archetype exercises in the site have a relatively coarse resolution, generalizing to some extent reflex function. If finer resolution is desired, you may further research the stimulus and response for a reflex listed in the survey report, and work with the pattern as described in the example presented. However, if you would like accuracy in this process, at least some training, or work with a therapist trained in reflex integration protocols, is recommended. For many people, the resolution of the exercises presented, is adequate to return fast results.

The exercises are presented in the context of “Archetypes of Movement”. These archetypes are the forms that reflexes integrate into, enabling intentional¬†movement. You can read more about the context of these archetypes here:
