Primitive Reflexes - Spinal Galant Reflex
Spinal Galant Reflex
The Galant Reflex occurs when stimulus is applied to the side of an infant's back. The hips will then shift towards the stimulus. This reflex is helpful in assisting the child through the birth canal and also plays an important part in learning how to crawl. The Galant Reflex first begins around 20 weeks in utero and becomes inhibited anywhere between three and nine months.
• Bed Wetting
• Poor Concentration
• Poor Short Term Memory
• Postural Issues (One or Both Sides)
• Tuner: Wings
• Intensity: Highest Tolerable Level
• Pressure: Moderate
• Duration: 6 Minutes
Set the intensity of the Tuner to the highest level you're able to tolerate. Using a moderate amount of pressure, start on the weak side of the body and scrape upwards along the side of the spine towards the neck. Do this for 2 minutes, then move over to the other side. We’ll want to work on the weak side for twice as long, so let's move back to it to finish up.
