Switched-on Kids is about helping children be as healthy, happy and confident as they possibly can be. The revolutionary Switched-on Kids program is based on the all important connection between the brain and the body and focuses on improving function in both.
Brain and nervous system function
The brain and nervous system are essential for everything we do in life: moving, thinking, concentrating, digesting, sleeping, etc. The spine and cranial bones protect these tissues, making the function of them very important. You will learn many chiropractic adjustment techniques specifically for babies and children that you can start using on Monday morning. We focus on gentleness and effectiveness.
Movement and exercise
One of the most important ways to stimulate a child’s brain comes from moving their bodies. Switched-on Kids provides you with a fun and motivating program which incorporates play with specific balance, coordination and sequence exercises. This program is designed to create new connections and pathways in the brain.
The health of the gut is directly related to the health of both body and brain. With Switched-on Kids you will understand exactly what in a child’s diet may upset their system and also what additions to their diet may be beneficial to their overall health and wellbeing. You will receive manageable, user-friendly strategies to help you help the families in your care make changes – one little step at a time.
This unique combination of approaches works synergistically to help a child’s nervous system work as well as possible, providing the best opportunity for them to enjoy optimum health and brain function. Switched-on Kids may help children function better at school, be more coordinated and be healthier and happier in all aspects of life.
