CLIENT'S STORIES OF THE MONTH:
The below stories are not uncommon stories in our clinic.
Often we have destructive unconscious stress patterns, that keep repeating. We become frustrated, lose efficiency, resulting in poor communication, relationship problems, break down, with possible failure in other areas of our lives too.
Many subconscious patterns and learning difficulty stresses
in our worlds, can be simply discovered and removed leaving us free
to relax, be successfully, happy, develop great relationships, so we are free to enjoy our gifts.

Autism, CAP & Global Developmental Delay
One recent example that comes to mind is the case of a young three year old, autistic child whose developmental growth had been halted at 18 months of age. She hadn't spoken, made any significant eye contact or had any real awareness of those around her, (including her mother), which of course was heart breaking for those who love her.
At her first visit, we cleared an emotional trauma. Immediately after her treatment, this little girl spun around to me, looked up at me with a big smile and outstretched arms. I picked her up and greeted her. She then looked around to find her mother and called, "Mummy"! Her mother broke into tears, as her daughter walked over to her for her first 'real' hug and contact for 18 months! "Welcome to the world dear little one!"
After three months of treatment, this developmentally delayed little girl is catching up quickly. She makes lots of direct eye contact, conversation, creative play, social interaction. She has also found the classic "NO" of a young healthy child.
The best news is that she is no longer being classified as Autistic!
5 years later, I ran into Donors mother. She was so excited to tell me:
"Donor is now reading, writing, communicating at a normal age level and best of all she is in a normal, mainstream class and holding her own with other students. She is well adjusted socially and has a few lovely normal friends. She has just gone from strength to strength. Thanks Lee-Anne for changing Donors and my life permanently".

2. Harrison's Story
"Before Brain Gym, I saw the world as critical of me. Now I see the world like it's my friend". (See below)
"Wow. Harrison would never take a risk. He was so nervous about making mistakes, unhappy and constantly fearful. He had a tough entry to the world and we feel he has struggled ever since.
Painfully we watched helplessly as nothing we tried worked. We now celebrate his achievements and risk taking on a daily basis. We as a family, have had a huge weight taken off our shoulders, our stress has dropped to such a degree that people tell me I look ten years younger. Now that was stress.
We are now all sleeping better and healthier. All aspects of Harrisons life have changed for the better. It's like a miracle.
We celebrate Harrison now being a real little boy and we are no longer fearful for his future.
The world has certainly opened up for Harrison. His eyes give him away. They show a sparkle that has been missing.
Harrison now sees the world as his playground for fun and adventure nd is no longer afraid.
We look at our recent holiday photos and we see genuine happiness and a care free child, just as it should be. Harrison has learnt the importance of being a child.
For all these achievements both the big and small, yes, even the 'cheeky', we thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.
Harrison is certainly spreading his wings in the most beautiful and positive way. Thank you!"
Trish Elkins and family, Canning Vale, WA
Harrison: "On my first session with Lee-Anne, I couldn't write on normal paper. Then on the next session I could!
To start, I felt as though everything had to be perfect. Now I feel like everything is not as perfect and that is OK.
Before Lee-Anne, I would not of trusted my Mum and Dad about things. Now I can trust my Mum and Dad.
Before this I wouldn't taken safe risks. Before Brain Gym, I saw the world like it was so critical of me. Now I see the world like I'm it's friend.
Lee-Anne helps me feel emotions, happy, sad, tired and teary.
I'm glad that I found Lee-Anne, whose helped me discover the world and make it less scary."
3. Teacher Karratha and former Principal Eneabba Primary School WA
"My experience of Lee-Anne Macleod's teaching within our school was inspiring. Her delivery was personal, fun and tailor made to suit our 'small town school' community. She taught us Brain Gym 101 adapting as she went to our many questions with the passion of an experienced teacher who knows how to work with teacher's, children and parents in the most efficient, effective and fun manner. I would highly recommend this gifted teacher to any school, parent or student.

4. Bejamin's Story by Liz Holmes, Reg Nurse, Karratha, WA
"We have an adorable, affectionate and happy Globally Dyspraxic son Benjamin. He has been attending Occupational therapy, Speech therapy and Physiotherapy since he was 18mths old when he first began to miss developmental milestones. His progress was slow but steady. He has also suffered from chronic ear infections and had grommets inserted and removed.
He exhibited a high level of motor activity and the Paediatrician suggested the possibility of ADHD as part of his long term picture. He actively sought physical contact almost continuously often using us and anyone available including complete strangers as climbing poles and very seldom sat still. His concentration span was short and variable and he woke often during the night disturbing the whole family's sleep.
A new teacher of one of Benjamin's siblings Gene Croft, who had had experience in teaching a Dyspraxic student over a number of years suggested I try Brain Gym and referred me to Lee-Anne. Being a Registered Nurse/Midwife and Intensive Care Nurse I thought I had a reasonable medical understanding of my son's diagnosis, and had never heard of Educational Kinesiology. Both my husband and I researched The Brain Gym websites and I spoke to some parents of Dyspraxic students who highly recommended the treatment.
Prior to meeting with Lee-Anne I read extensively texts she referred me to on Reflexes, Learning and Behaviour and felt for the first time in almost 4yrs that I had finally discovered the key to unlock our little man's potential. Somehow all the therapy we were so diligently attending too was frustratingly slow as if we were missing a vital link in the chain for what he needed.
On initial assessment Benjamin was highly excitable, mobile and difficult to pin down for any length of time, but by the third session with Lee-Anne he was visibly more relaxed, calmer within himself and actually lying still for her to manipulate and treat him. I certainly don't understand the magic Lee-Anne works on any level except to say that it has made a profound difference to Benjamin and our whole family. Since his third treatment he has slept through the night, a priceless development. This has had immeasurable positive effects on us all. He even wakes up happy now which he never did before seeing Lee-Anne some two months ago.
After only five short sessions with Lee-Anne, Benjamin's active seeking of constant sensory stimuli has ceased. His concentration span has increased markedly which has opened up a whole new world to both him and us. He is currently making great developmental gains in every area. Nothing short of a miracle! He is now wired to have all the therapy work as it was intended to. We are continuing a daily regimen of ten mins of Lee-Anne's specialised exercises with him. Most days he asks for and thoroughly enjoys these. We are so grateful for the opportunity Brain Gym and Lee-Anne's particular use of her specialised Kinesiology skills, has given us to maximise Benjamin's potential."

5. ELITE SPORT - TEE EXAMS
Swimming Time Improved 30% - Study Exam Marks up 30%
* Jo, is a top National swimmer. He was having great difficulty focussing on his study, had large anxieties about not achieving and was failing exams. Even though he'd just won a National swimming title, he was constantly injured, always exhausted and no longer enjoying his sport, school or social life. He was depressed and considered in the 'at risk' adolescent group by the school psychologist, lacking motivation for anything even socially. He felt that his only option was to 'give up' his studies even though he was a very capable and intelligent person.
We concentrated on turning Jo's self esteem and school studies around first. We knew that the renewed success here would also increase his happiness and motivation in the pool. After a few sessions, we'd cleared a lot of the emotional and neurological 'blocks'. He began to feel more confident in all areas of school as the anxiety reduced and marks lifted. We continued working and it wasn't long before he was feeling happy, motivated and succeeding academically again.
We began to look at and work on his swimming strokes. It was obvious that he was losing power in the last 30% of all his strokes. The same 'lost' 30%' and 'completion' pattern that we'd discovered in other areas of his life. In one session, we corrected two strokes and Jo's times instantly improved 30% in the pool. (His coach drug tested him, not believing his sudden speed increase, energy and relaxed smile.) NOTE: Stress restricted the full function of his 'power' muscles. This was simply 're-patterned and restored!
This young man is now feeling happy, self confident, achieving highly with his school studies, swimming and all other areas of his life. The missing 30% 'patterned' in his subconscious mind was like a failure 'switch' that was hidden and uncontrollable.
*(Name changed to Jo to protect his public profile)
This is not an uncommon story in my clinic. Often we have destructive unconscious patterns of stress, that keep repeating themselves. We become frustrated, lose efficiency, often resulting in poor communication, relationship problems or break down and failure in other areas of our lives. Many Learning difficulties and stresses in our worlds can be simply discovered and removed leaving us free to be relaxed, successfully, happy, have great relationships and to enjoy our gifts.

EARLY CHILDHOOD REFLEXES
Early Childhood Reflexes support our survival and may also underlie many difficulties we experience in our daily lives. If early reflexes are unsuccessfully integrated, this may greatly affect our health, behaviour, concentration, learning, vision, hearing, speech, balance, coordination and growth eg; School progress or inability to integrate socially.
These children and adults are often labelled as ADD, ADHD, Dyslexic, disruptive, lazy, defiant, violent or uncooperative despite constant effort by the child, parents and teachers. Current evidence often points to non integrated (E.C.R.) factors.
To cope efficiently in their daily life takes large amounts of energy and they are often tired and lack motivation due to these fundamental difficulties being unresolved.
