Have you ever been falling asleep and you almost feel like you are floating almost like you are in an upright position?
You are falling...
You startle Big Time and you are back in your body in a horizontal position.
Knowing where we are at in space is Super Important.
I am not talking about in relationship to the floor, but in your relationship to gravity and your force interaction relationships.
Your body needs to know when it is, Horizontal, or Vertical whether or not I am laying on the floor or hanging in the air.
When we move, we should be building a Symbiotic Relationship With Gravity.
We experience gravity in 360 degrees. It's all around us.
That being said our balance has to be in 360 degrees.
A child shouldn't be randomly falling, (yes we may occasionally trip on things, I am not talking about that kind of falling)....
Milestone development is not based on strength but one's ability to rotate in and through what seems like invisible space around us, but really it's gravity and the interaction our body has with gravity.
For a child what makes the stepping stone of milestone development possible is the child’s ability to successfully move in and out of each milestone independently using rotational movements.
Now I keep saying rotation.
Because, yes, you can work on muscle strengthening so a child can muscle through movements, but eventually the child will reach a point where they can’t muscle through anymore because their body is too heavy and gravity has become too much to work against.
It has nothing to do with strength.
Which is counterintuitive.
We think we just need to build more strength but movement shouldn’t take work and when it does we don’t want to do it anymore.
When you focus on...
Birth Trauma can be a variety of things:
When a child experiences a birth trauma that interrupts their cranial movements, developmental delays can occur.
Because these types of birth trauma can cause two types of jams in the cranial system.
Your child may be struggling with things like:
The head needs to be able to counter all the movements in the spine, and when there is an atlas jam, it can't; therefore key transitional movements patterns can not occur.
Transitional Movement Patterns are what should happen in a person's body between each of the "baby milestones" that you know.
These are not all of the established milestones given by the CDC, but here are just a few:
