Full Course Child Centre Method Training

The Child Centre Method specialises in integrating primitive reflexes and addressing Physical Literacy, which is one of the pre cursors for literacy and for learning problems and underachievement. The Child Centre Method is unique because it identifies the underlying stress and corrects it in a holistic way, that is quicker, then just using developmental exercises on their own.

Our aims are to enable individuals to develop personally and professionally and to use an integrated, holistic method to help children . Our philosophy and teachings establish a range of wide productive skills that form a basis of successful, professional practice.

Module 1 will allow you to start using developmental exercises to integrate the reflexes and module 2 and 3 will allow you to start using the protocols in your current clinic, setting or practice. Continuation of the training to module 7 will allow you to become a Child Centre Practitioner after the assessment has been completed.


  • A series of mandatory modules
  • Additional selection of workshops and courses that offer personal choice
  • Home study, reading and case studies
  • Support and personal development throughout the course and extra support if required
  • A simple way of assessment that will leave the individual feeling competent and confident.

Registration and certification

Feedback from one student
Just forwarding my daughter’s statement about the Child Centre Method AFP balance I did on her.

…My mum did a balance and the next day at school I remembered we had a Geography test that day which I had forgotten all about. So I read over the chapter once at break time. It was weird because I felt I understood it better and when I went in for the test I found it really weird because the info I read stayed in my brain, because I’m dyslexic normally and I would need to read something lots of times for that to happen especially with Geography because I really don’t like it and I got 86% in the test.

Module 3

Day 1
Using the Child Centre Method Reflex Modality to integrate the reflexes

This modality is a powerful but simple energetic modality, using muscle testing, the body’s own innate healing system, and the energetic frequency and structure of the energy system, to release the underlying stress that allows the reflex to stay active in the body. This modality helps to integrate individual reflexes quickly and effectively. The CCM Reflex Routine is the power house, and the core, of the Child Centre Method and is unique because it integrates science with energy medicine. Once the session has been completed, usually, only a week of specific exercises are needed to integrate the reflexes and to improve Physical Literacy. Research into the progress, function and science of energy medicine is being undertaken on a world-wide scale especially following the successes and case studies from the many modalities.


  • Consolidation of muscle testing technique
  • Using muscle testing to access and address the underlying stress in individual reflexes
  • Addressing issues with balance problems
  • Addressing the stress that causes and fight and flight system to remain active

Day 2

Using the CCM reflex modality to address primitive reflexes


  • Profiling a child using the CCM Assessment
  • Understanding the issues that need to addressed as well as having a baseline to note progress
  • Learning methods of accessing the underlying cause of stress that cause the individual reflexes to be retained. Once this workshop has been completed you will be able to integrate the reflexes more rapidly then via developmental exercises.

Module 4

Day 1
Neural Organisation Technique

Addressing the body’s fight and flight system using Neural Organisation Technique 1-8. This is a non-invasive hands-on protocol that will take the body out of the fight and flight system and reset the body into a neutral system. The focus will be on the Moro reflex, Tendon Guard reflex and Fear reflex. These reflexes particularly affect children labelled with Aspergers and Autism.


  • Techniques for stress release and stress overload via 1-8 protocl from the Neuro Organiosation technique. This is an intoduction to N.O.T and can lead to full training of N.O.T if desired .
  • Technique to help integrate Tendon Guard reflex to release stress from the body.
  • Techniques for realignment of gait to help coordination.
  • Technique to help cranial fault and realign atlas to take the body out of compensatory state.

Pre requisites ability to muscle test.

Day 2
Optimum Health Balance

This is a method of using muscle testing to assess the status of the survival systems and gauge to what extent the nervous systems is promoting protective/defensive responses which are set off by the reflexes not being integrated. OHB , is a non invasive technique to use alongside AFP to help integrate the Primitive Reflexes and to initiate the reorganisation of the nervous system. This is an introduction to Optimum Health Balance and can lead to full training if desired.

Optional Courses For Professional Development

NEPS 1 – Neuro Emotional Pathways 1

What is covered in the course?
This course is one of the most comprehensive and powerful techniques for working with the impact of stress on survival responses. It was created by Hugo Tobar and forms part of Neuroenergetic Kinesiology system. It delves into the study of the brain function involved in the expression of the five basic survival emotions. These emotional pathways run specific programs designed for the survival of the human species. The aim of this course is to introduce students to the neurological pathways of emotional stimulation and the associated physiological responses along with unique techniques to balance challenging emotional states that are inappropriate or no longer needed. This course provides students with:

  • Detailed information on areas of the brain involved with emotional processing and the modulation response initiated by the PAG along with investigation methods to detect stress in specific neurotransmitters, receptors, nutritional and spiritual aspects of each area;
  • Explanations of the five survival emotional systems of FEAR, RAGE, PANIC, SEEKING and CARE/ NURTURE, including their origins, purposes and the effects of stress and imbalances on our emotional wellbeing;
  • Simple, step-by-step balancing techniques and corrections to release stress in a powerful way which integrate smoothly into other techniques or modalities.

Prerequisite: Brain formatting
4 days 520.00 euro
