About the Sunflower Programme
The Sunflower Programme is a unique and innovative approach to supporting the health, behaviour, learning and overall wellbeing of children
We call it “Let the body do the talking”.
Each programme is tailor-made to address a child’s individual musculoskeletal, neurological, biochemical and emotional needs as well as by testing the integrity and viability of the nervous system. The programme also looks at how the mind mediates between the brain and the body.
A properly functioning brain communicates between both hemispheres, as well as within each hemisphere, at lightning speed. Think of these communications like runners in a relay race: They connect, pass on information, and release, repeating this process millions of times a minute around the body via the nervous system. In a poorly functioning nervous system, these runners are often out of sync, missing each other or passing on only partial information.
Such misconnection can occur at any time during brain development, even in the womb, but it generally remains undetected until obvious symptoms begin to appear, usually at school age and is the root of all types of learning, behaviour and social problems. It is the central nervous system that regulates and integrates all aspects of health and behaviour.
Children who have been through the Sunflower Programme respond far better to teachers or additional specialist help they may be receiving.
To have caught up with his age group over a period of only a year is an amazing achievement. He was 18 months behind his age group and in 9 months has caught up. In other words, in the same time interval he has achieved a great deal more than his peers. Thanks go to the Sunflower Programme.
