Brain Gym And Me’s Unique Approach To Physical, Emotional And Spiritual Health
Ventura, CA (January, 2007) Finally, an all new and highly effective approach to the eternal quest for better body and mental health and freedom from the daily stressors that effect us all. Paul Dennison’s new book, Brain Gym and Me: Reclaiming the Pleasure of Learning delves into Dennison’s highly successful Brain Gym Program based on Educational Kinesiology - enhanced learning through movement. This movement-based system introduces enjoyable, easy-to-do physical activities to enhance people’s ability to learn, process information, and respond to the world in an ease-filled, effective way. Dennison’s Brain Gym program is currently in more than eighty countries and book sales have toppled over 415,000 during the past years.
Brain Gym was created to assist people in all facets of daily life, from the trainees of an insurance company preparing for the formidable exam, to the owner of a travel agency suffering financial losses each year in business, to children struggling with ADHD looking for an alternative to harmful medicines. Thus, the basis of the book can help corporate executives and educationally challenged children alike with the primary goal of better health and total body well being.
The lessons taught are profoundly simple, can be done anywhere, and work well for all ages. Dennison hopes to awaken his readers to an understanding of the interdependence of movement, learning, and brain development. The Brain Gym movements have been so effective that many schools across the world now offer Brain Gym in their classrooms, as more and more parents request it for their children.
Another benefit to the Brain Gym program is its effectiveness in dealing with stress. The Brain Gym focuses on methods for everyone to overcome the daily challenges of life and focus on how to overcome stress, restlessness, lack of coordination, and memory difficulty. As is outlined in the book, negative stress triggers the flight-or fight syndrome, flooding the body with hormones to ready it for instantaneous reaction. This can be successfully conquered by using the right steps. Just a few minutes of practicing the right Brain Gym and Me movement has proven positive impacts on stress reduction, goal setting, perceptual motor skills, reading, writing, remembering and even deep sleep.
