Intensive Therapy Program
The Centre of Movement offers TheraSuit Method Intensive Programs which provide individualised therapy programs that accelerates functional progress. Many children gain more progress towards their goals in three weeks of intensive therapy than they do in a whole 12 months of ongoing traditional therapy.
The TheraSuit Program is ideal for those looking to meet functional goals at an accelerated rate compared to traditional therapy.
Goals of the Therasuit Progam
TheraSuit Method aims to eliminate pathological reflexes and establish new and correct functional patterns of movements. This is achieved by increasing the body’s feedback to the brain while engaging in function movement when wearing the suit. The TheraSuit aligns the body as close to neurotypical as possible. Re-establishing the correct postural alignment which plays a crucial role in normalizing muscle tone, sensory and vestibular function.
The Universal Exercise Unit, used as part of the TheraSuit Method, trains the child’s ability to isolate desired movements and strengthen the muscle groups responsible for those movements. Universal Exercise Unit allows clients to gain increased range of motion, muscle and joint flexibility, as well as functional skills.
