Tendril Kinetics, as an affiliate of Sonia Story & Move Play Thrive,  offers online training 

Would you like to impact a root cause of sensory issues and challenges with learning, anxiety, and focus? 

You are invited to join Move Play Thrive online training (mini-course and full-course training options) to help people of all ages, and especially children, overcome challenges by learning and practicing life-changing neuro-reflex and rhythmic movement techniques.  Therapists are discovering that these special movements are the “ultimate help for sensory processing disorders.” 

These calming, transformative, and playful movements mature the brain, body, and sensory systems and are effective for all ages.

Using neuro-movements drawn from natural, developmental patterns promotes:
                ·      Calm sensory processing
                ·      Sleep
                ·      Emotional regulation
                ·      Speech
                ·      Balance, strength, coordination
                ·      Learning/cognitive skills

Here’s what people are saying about the course...

        "I took your online Brain and Sensory Foundations class last spring. I feel 
        that the training I received has transformed my practice and the way I 
        approach my patients. Every child who has participated in reflex 
        integration activities has made so much progress in the past 6 months in 
        our facility, and it has been so wonderful to have parents and kids excited 
        about therapy!"   Nikki Kieffer, OTR/L

        "This has been a life-changing course for our family. Our son's classic 
        ADHD symptoms are greatly reduced and I doubt that any professional 
        would diagnose him as ADHD now. This has happened within 2 months. 
        This course is money well spent, and the knowledge will last a lifetime for 
        your family. Everyone stands to benefit.”   M.F., parent, Utah

        "The course was awesome! I have taken several courses on reflexes both 
        live and online as well as reading books about the subject . This has been 
        by far the best learning experience about reflexes I have done yet!” 
                                        Rachel Vitello, Occupational Therapist, Massachusetts
        I am a Naturopathic Physician practicing in Anchorage AK and cannot 
        tell you enough how much I appreciate your work and wisdom.  I work 
        with a lot of kids with issues and always look at the reflex issues first and 
        often that is enough to get them back on track."  
                            Dr. Adam Grove, Naturopathic Physician, Anchorage, Alaska
