Many developmental abnormalities can be traced to persistent reflexes and weaknesses in tone regulation. The neurophysiological principles of Rota Therapy address these basic skills in sensorimotor development. As an everyday concept, special consideration is given to handling and sitting, movement in general, in addition to easily implemented exercises. In this everyday area a child can be supported in its development. Even if a child does not primarily indicate a need for therapy, the impulses of the Rota Concept have a positive influence on basic body tension and subsequently on motor skills, as well as on perception, concentration and attention, cooperation, and behavior in the group.

Advanced infant course

Building on the Rota prophylaxis basic course, an infant course is possible.

Many abnormalities in development can be traced back to early childhood reflexes and weaknesses in tone regulation. These are sometimes already apparent intrauterine, or immediately after birth. Especially in the case of writing babies or premature babies, tone regulation and thus relief can take place through targeted handling and everyday care, as well as through simple lap exercises. The parents’ tone can also be taken into account prophylactically in various positions. Practical tips complement the daily handling of infants and in parent counseling.
