Our brain is an amazing thing and much of how it works is still being discovered.
Today’s guest teaches us how using neuroplasticity, we can rewire processing for completely separate senses to overcome difficulty in sensory processing.
Dr. Karen Pryor, author of Ten Fingers Ten Toes Twenty Things Everyone Needs to Know: Neuroplasticity for Children, talks to us about why she wrote this book, and how she uses neuroplasticity to overcome challenges. Karen is both a doctor of physical therapy and naturopathy and has qualifications in hypnotherapy - fields that she has fused to create the dynamic approach to therapy that she shares with us in this episode.
Join us to learn why it's important to ask parents the right questions, and how to activate kids' spatial awareness. Discover the mechanism underlying neuroplasticity, and why pressing the tongue against the roof of the mouth grounds us. Dive into subconscious processing and find out how to phrase instructions that bypass it. From why she hums but never sings, to practical examples of how she would treat specific patients, you don’t want to miss this fascinating episode that gives us a brief glimpse into the techniques and tips used by Dr. Karen Pryor!
