What is Brain Integration?

Often the difference between an adult or child who learns easily and an adult or child who experiences learning difficulties is ‘stress-tolerance’, in other words, the level of stress that triggers a loss of integrated brain function. Stress disorganizes the Brain! When the communication pathways in the brain have become blocked or shut down because of stress, it makes it hard to think clearly and learn new information. Kinesiologists use Brain Integration techniques as a way of opening up the communication pathways in the brain to make it easier to think and learn. A programme of Brain Integration techniques can reveal which pathways in the brain are not functioning to their fullest, and then, by using acupressure points, these areas can be de-stressed, allowing them to be opened up and available to be used thus making it easier to think, learn and reach your full potential!

Brain Integration can benefit movement, co-ordination, balance, memory, concentration, speech, reading, writing, mathematics and thus, Self-Esteem!

Help for Exam Stress!

Often when an exam paper is placed in front of students they can be overwhelmed by the pressure to perform well and this can cause a ‘fight & flight’ reaction. This is a natural physiological response activated by the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system and the release of hormones to get the body into immediate ‘survival mode’. The heart races; the airways and pupils dilate; blood vessels dilate in skeletal and cardiac muscles to ready us to run away, while blood vessels constrict in other areas that are not essential to emergency situations - like the analytical parts of the brain!

Whilst this ‘fight & flight’ response is life-saving in the face of physical danger, like stumbling upon a tiger snake, regrettably it severely hampers one’s ability to think logically when doing an exam! Blood is literally withdrawn from the frontal lobes of the brain where we do most of our reasoning, problem-solving, planning and creative thinking, and is redirected to the deeper subconscious survival areas of the limbic system, and it can seem as if the mind has indeed gone ‘blank’.

Within the field of kinesiology there are a number of techniques to re-synchronize such neural activity.

Kinesiology can not only help the student to avoid going into inappropriately-timed survival mode, but it can also assist the student to gain better overall brain integration to make it easier to think, learn and reach their full potential.
