Quantum Reflex Integration (QRI) Introduction to primitive reflexes
Non Integrated Reflex
Can you see just how much more relaxed and at ease the baby with the integrated reflexes (depicted in the right picture) is?
Primitive Reflexes - What are they?
Primitive Reflexes are the building blocks for life throughout our neurological development. They are the automatic involuntary reactions to stimuli such as sound, touch and movement. These reflexes play an essential role during the development in the womb as well as the first few months of our lives. Thus, essential for our survival.
They support the development of our higher brain centres that control:
- Muscle tone
- Sensory integration
- Learning Skills
- Psychological development
Primitive reflexes work with us throughout our lifetime by laying the foundation for our nervous system. For eg. as we get older, unintegrated reflexes may trigger the ‘fight or flight’ response associated with what we call the Moro Reflex- even when there is little to no apparent source of stress. Stress behaviour thus becomes our pattern of response.
Why some reflexes become retained:
- Stress during pregnancy
- Birth trauma
- Traumatic incidents
- Genetic abnormalities
Our body is designed to unfold and develop successfully integrated reflexes on time to complete the neurological connection as well as the nervous system. If the body doesn’t manage that, the reflexes may become retained and lead to the following…
Incomplete integration contributes to:
- ADHD, Autism, Learning Difficulties
- Language and speech delays
- Disorganization, fidgeting and concentration difficulties
- Sensory integration disorders, vision and hearing challenges
- Coordination difficulties
- Hypotonic (low muscle tone), hypertonic (high muscle tone)
- Muscle weakness, chronic body aches, poor endurance and fatigue
- Poor bladder control
- Difficulties breathing
The ‘MAGIC of LIGHT’ with Cold Laser Therapy
Some history of Light Therapy...
Light was first used by Angus Pleasanton in 1876 for the relation to organs, glands and the nervous system using a blue light.
In 1887 Seth Pancoast used red and blue lights to stimulate and relax the nervous system.
With many others following in their footsteps, beginning to study the magic such as doctors, dentists, physical therapists and chiropractors.
And now presently, me, Rezwana Patterso having discovered the ‘Magic of Light’- I Invite you to witness the magic yourself.
COLD Laser- Why is it named ‘cold’?
Named ‘cold’ because it penetrates the skin with no heating effect or damage.
The beam may penetrate as deeply as 4 inches into the body- producing photochemical effects to promote natural healing.
Infared lasers penetrate the deepest, often 8 inches or more into the body.
Red lasers do not penetrate as deeply and can benefit the peripheral and central nervous system, along with muscle fascia and ligaments.
Violet lasers can help us relax as well as develop brain dominance. Also reducing the aging of skin at the cellular level.
The Quantum Reflex Integration Harmonic (my laser) has a combination of ALL three of the laser diodes mentioned.
Some science behind the magic…
Photons, the basic unit of light emitted by the laser, stimulate cellular mitochondria to increase production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This governs 80-90% of cellular activity, inducing replication.
Faster and more efficient cell replication then bring regeneration to the targeted area and thus faster healing time.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is considered the ‘battery’ of all energy source for the cell.
Many clinical trials have been conducted for application of the laser- with many incredible discoveries.
