TESTIMONIALS

 

Faizah Mohamad

 

My 5 year old son, Amsyar was attended to by Keshna when she came to my centre for our BG104. I had asked Keshna to help my son with his anger issues and his articulation. Keshna began by doing PACE with Amsyar; sip water, Brain Button, Cross Crawl and Hook Ups. Later on, Keshna allowed my son to play with the Lazy 8 Board.

After his session with Keshna, I noticed that Amsyar was calmer and contented. He didn't yell anymore (for at least 3 days), he didn't throw any tantrums and he listens and accepts my explanations if his request was not fulfilled.

SOO TENG, 29, who runs an after school programme has found Brain Gym to be an effective tool to help the children under her care to achieve consistency and confidence in their daily routine.

I wanted to create a relaxed environment to enable children to take to their daily routine in an optimistic and productive manner. I realized that the more grounded children are, the calmer they will be; thus making them emotionally stable and ready to face the rigours of a daily routine.

The practice of Brain Gym movements has and continues to help the children under my care build a mindset that reacts to situations with a positive energy.

I have a girl aged five, who does not enjoy writing Chinese characters. She comes from a non-Chinese speaking background and her adverse reaction to this task is clearly understandable. I introduced the Brain Gym movements to her, specifically those that would stimulate her motor skills.

After three weeks, I noticed that she showed a keener interest in her writing assignments. I also noticed that when she experienced difficulties during the task, she would go to the Brain Gym corner which I have set up for Brain Gym activities; and there she would pick out a Brain Gym activity to do. When she completed the activity, she would diligently resume her writing assignment.

There have been instances recently where she has asked me to guide her through certain movements; which I found surprising for a child who is normally reserved and shy. Her asking for help is a huge step in how she is managing her environment.

I have also observed that the children in general are looking forward to the daily Brain Gym sessions; so much so that they request for the sessions. Parents have also mentioned that they find their children calmer at home. Another parent has observed that her child, who used to whine when it came to doing homework, would now do his homework at his own behest.

Brain Gym has helped me  create an environment which spurs creativity, instead of one which is stressful whenever it came to the children accomplishing their daily routines. We cannot run away from the academic expectations that are put on us but we can help create an environment that nurtures independence that cultivates intentional and purposeful learning.

Maya (nama samaran), seorang anak comel berumur 6 tahun. Beliau ada lah satu-satu anak perempuan dalam keluarga nya. Ibu ayah nya sangat bimbang kerana Maya tidak suka membaca atau menulis kerana mata nya cepat merasa penat.  Kegiatan seharian nya ketika di rumah ia lah bermain permainan maya atau melayari cerita di i-pad. Bermula dari celik mata sebelum ke tadika, beliau akan masuk ke dunia maya nya dan disambung semula apabila pulang dari tadika sehingga ke malam hari.

Semasa membuat penilaian pada sessi konsultasi, saya meminta nya melihat pen yang saya gerakkan ke kanan dan ke kiri, dengan jarak lebih kurang 45cm pada aras mata nya. Setelah beberapa gerakan, Maya mula berkelip-kelip dan mata nya mula berair. Pergerakan mata hitam nya tidak sekata dan pandangan nya tidak lagi tertumpu pada pada aktiviti yang sedang dijalankan.

Saya mengajak beliau melakukan PACE yang dimulakan dengan minum air. Kami kemudian melakukan BRAIN BUTTON.  Selepas itu, kami membuat beberapa pergerakan CROSS CRAWL yang begitu menyeronokkan bagi nya, diikuti dengan HOOK-UP. Kami juga bermain dengan LAZY 8 menggunakan cat air dan activiti menggunakan Lazy 8 board. 

Program Brain Gym yang kami lakukan ini dilakukan juga dengan ibubapa di rumah setiap hari. Maya mengurangkan aktiviti bermain i-pad dan mengurangkan pengambilan gula dalam pemakanan nya.

Seminggu selepas itu, kami melakukan semula penilaian seperti minggu pertama. Kali ini mata Maya tidak lagi berair dan tumpuan pandangan nya sangat baik ketika memandang pergerakan pen. Mata hitam beliau juga boleh ‘tracking’ dengan baik. Menurut ibu nya Maya sudah mahu, dan boleh membaca dan menulis dalam jangka masa yang lebih lama dari sebelum nya.

                 初期接觸Brain Gym (BG), 事因是想了解他人的大腦也因这一个好奇開始接觸它也開始了那三天的工作坊旅程。
在這三天的工作坊內,沒有太多的理論,也是在一個 糊里糊塗的狀況下只看著我自已和其它學員們要不停互相練習 ,進行一個又一個的 balance, 肌肉測試 ,前測、後測。 
而每天我上完課的時候,回到家裏, 我只能躺在梳化上休息,只是觀看電視,不想去思考太多事情,因為每天所做的調和,確實令到我整個人很放鬆 感覺上要重新去適應。整個人好似"hang"機!只知身體同腦子怪怪!不懂如何去運作。。。就是這奇妙感覺和心情讓我有好多的好奇和不明。繼繼續續去探索,經歷了過去几年的探索,應用,自研自学,上不同的BG工作坊 我終於明白那次(當初)到底發生了什麼事。

BG 里的動作看似簡單、但它很强大魔力可調和和肌肉測試,推動了身體內很多被阻塞的能量,以那一刻它帮身體和大腦重新種下新種子 以這種子慢慢的一點點在不知不覺下經過一些內在的能量推動下調節和結合了身體和大腦重新啟動 邁向新目的地 也因身體透過一些外在動作和刺激,重新讓扭曲了的身體部位、肌肉和感官回復其自然放鬆狀態,學習就會自然流暢,大腦就會自然流暢。個人如能夠在這種自然和無壓力的狀態下運作,學習就會變得容易,事半功倍,這就是BG的概念。也是原創者 Dr Paul Dennison 的 BG 原意和理念。

這就是為什麼有些學員初次接觸這些身心腦工作後的反應,當內在的能量被推動了,身體就要重新適應和調節,這是很正常的身體反應。
是透過一些外在動作和刺激,重新讓扭曲了的身體部位、肌肉和感官回復其自然放鬆狀態,學習就會自然流暢,大腦就會自然流暢。

My client was a 6year old who washaving trouble with his math calculation. I could see he was getting frustrated watching his classmates "get it." I took him to another room and we did a few math problems which he naturally struggled to do. 

I got him to do PACE: sip water, brain buttons,  cross crawl and hook ups. I also did thinking caps on him and he giggled and I massage his neck as he slowly tuned his head left to right. At the end we both did huge lazy eights in the air laughing, then on paper. We drank more water. We then redid the math problems and he got it immediately. The joy in his face was my reward. He was thrilled that he "got it". It all took 12 mins. A few days later, he still remembered.

My student is 5 years old, boy. He has a speech delay and some other learning difficulties which was not diagnose. When his first month in school (January) he was in 4 years old class due to his delayed milestones, he preferred it that way too since he can play more in that class. When teacher was talking in the class he would walk around and explore each corner of that classroom, and even the whole school. He was always forward and so keen in everything.
In February He was one of my clients during my Brain Gym® 104 case studies.  The pre-activity that I asked him to do was soldier crawl. 

During the 1st noticing, he could only crawl with left leg. Cannot alternately with the right side. He chose the first Brain Gym® card which was Energy Yawn. After energy yawn, he started to use his left leg but stop using the right leg.

2nd Brain Gym® he chose was The Thinking Cap, which helped him to use both legs now, but each leg will take 2 steps

The last Brain Gym® was The Brain Button. Finally, he could use both legs to do soldier crawl now alternately. 

I’m very amazed after 3 movements the he can do soldier crawl much better and listened to my instruction better!

After a month of applying those Brain Gym® movements (not regular due to his absence to school), he is now in his own 5 years old class and sometimes interested to join the class activities. I am excited to see more of his development progress soon!

身体替我们服务了那么多年,我们的心脏跳了多久,我们的身体就替我们服务了奖牌多久。我们是不是应该对我们的身体说声谢谢,我爱你呢?
大部分的人都为了三餐而忘了和身体做个连接,往往都因为身体发出讯息,身体累坏了,我们才来照顾。
和自己的身体有个连接,让我们更能了解身体需要什么,我们需要怎样的方式来解决它门。
我表姐,今年已三十出头啦。工作带给她很多的压力,也不知道怎么去释放自己的压力。
压力带影响了她的日常,好比说,失眠,狂吃,容易疲倦,情绪不稳定和集中力差。
其实一开始她并没有察觉这是他身体给了讯息告诉她,她需要一种方式去疏解压力。
而在新年的聚餐中,我发觉她比往常的她不一样了。经过了我在Brain Gym® 中学习如何观察身体讯息后,我和他做了一个Brain Gym® 的动作来减轻他身体的压力。
在观察的过程中,当他和我聊天时,他屏住呼吸,过于专注的告诉我关于他工作所带给他的压力。压力带给她绷紧的肌肉而使她患上背部疼痛。此刻的她,想法负面,情绪低落而无法想出任何疏解压力的方法。
我拍了拍她的肩,二话不说,我把手上的Brain Gym® movement 卡递给了她,她也抽出了第一张Brain Gym ® 卡片。
第一个动作叫做 The Energizer 。在他做此动作之前,我们先做了个PACE 的动作,再来做The Energizer。 这PACE的动作是稳定她的情绪稳定和增加专注。 PACE 后,我们就开始The Energizer。做了三次的The Energizer,我再观察到她身体带来的讯息。弯弯的后背稍微挺直了,专注力也稍微回来了。她还是感觉她的情绪没什么改变,但是比起之前精神了一点。我也发觉他在呼吸的方式不对,所以我要求她做 Brain Gym®  Belly Breathing 的动作。 他学习了怎么用对的方式呼吸后,发觉他的心情平静了许多。也感觉身上的细胞有了氧气,身体的肌肉也没有那么精崩了。
我也建议她继续练习Brain Gym® 的动作以便能改善身体状况。
