Primitive Reflexes - Landau Reflex
Landau Reflex (Superman) - Inhibits Tonic Labyrinthine Reflex (TLR) and engages extensors.
The Landau Reflex is a developmental response in the face down position where the infant raises its head and arches its back while the arms and legs are stretched. As the head goes down, the back, arms and legs relax downward. This reflex helps to develop gross motor coordination throughout the body. It manifests around four months of age and becomes inhibited at about three and a half years.
• Compromised Balance and Tone
• Awkward or Stiff Running
• Difficulty Hopping, Skipping and Jumping
• Tuner: Accessory Clear Tip
• Intensity: Highest Tolerable Level
• Pressure: Light
• Duration: 20 Minutes a Day/3x a Week
Set the intensity of the Tuner to the highest level you're able to tolerate. Start on the side of the body that's weakest. Using a moderate amount of pressure, use the wing of the Tuner to scrape your entire body starting from your toes and moving up towards your head. Once you've finished scraping the weakest side of your body, do the same thing to the other side. We want to give the weak side of your body twice as much attention. Go back and scrape it one more time. Do this for 20 minutes every day, at least three times a week.
• Tuner: Runner's Pack
• Intensity: Green or Blue Mode
• Pressure: Moderate
• Duration: 30-60 Minutes Every Day
For this step, you can choose between the green or blue modes. Grab your runner's pack and place your Tuner inside, zipping it closed. Strap the pack so that the mesh side is against your lower back. Make sure to tighten it enough to give you a moderate amount of pressure. Make sure to keep the pack on for at least 30 to 60 minutes every day with the pack oriented toward the weaker side of your body. You can also place it on your stomach.
