7 ways to use the Rezzimax Tuner Pro

Not all vibration devices are created in the same way as they don’t all create the resonance that your brain needs in order to heal.
Some operate like an electric toothbrush, they only vibrate and make some noise.

The Rezzimax tuner Pro has been programmed with different frequencies. Each frequency designed to send a different message to the brain.

We have been using it for the last year and have noticed amazing changes with our boys : better speech and articulation, improved hand-writing , better emotional regulation and improved comprehension.

How can you use the Rezzimax Tuner Pro?

You can use the Rezzimax Tuner Pro in a variety of ways and as my audience is mainly interested in sensory integration , learning difficulties and autism related theraphy I focus my attention on ways to help these kids but there can be many other ways to use the Rezzimax Tuner Pro.


1.Gut issues – The tuner wakes up the GI system by activating the vagus nerve it can help with tummy issues and constipation.


2.Helps integrate primitive reflexes faster : Primitive reflexes are a barrier to normal development and as a result many of the kids on the Spectrum struggle with a variety of issues such as bed wetting, focus, concentration, behavioral issues, sleep, eating and many more.
For example:
By integrating palmer reflex we can see improved hand writing and better ball skills.
By integrating the Spinal Galant reflex we can treat bed wetting.

3.Improved speech : Improved speech can be done by various ways :
Integrating the rooting reflex with the Rezzimax Tuner Pro.
Activating facial muscles with the tuner.


4. Migraine relief – by placing the Rezzimax on an acupuncture point above the eyebrow or by placing it on the head going back and forth.


5. Help to build up stronger core – having a strong core is vital . There is a strong correlation between strong core and a healthy brain. One way to activate the core muscles is to strap the Rezzimax on the stomach while doing sit-ups.


6. Helps relax tight muscles – When it comes to tight muscles and pain the tuner is your friend. use it on the sore muscles directly singing or humming at the same time can help our body to sync in with the tuner even faster.


7.Helps with Emotional regulation – Knowing how to facilitate emotional regulation is an important skill to have for parents of kids on the spectrum .
There are many ways we can help kids dealing with anxiety such as:
breathing, yoga and meditation.
By using the Rezzimax we activate the vagus nerve that activates our parasympathetic system and helps us be in a relaxed state and avoid the ‘fight or flight’ state that leads to further anxiety and distress.


Here is a short video to show how can the Rezzimax Tuner Pro can be used in the mouth to help with speech and articulation.

And yet, this is an amazing device that can help in so many ways.

Share with me in the comments the way you are using it and how does it help you in your daily activities.

5 tips to help with Sensory Processing difficulties

5 tips to help with Sensory Processing difficulties

 

 

 When it comes to sensory challenges there are few ideas that help parents to understand their child better and engage in a fun activity that let the child express their feeling and feel in control of the situation.

Here are some ideas from my latest chat with Lindsey Biel,   

  1. Tactile – de-sensitization : play dough and give the child a cookie cutter , any tool and slowly introduce the touch feeling, Or when using finger paint use a glove , brush and work towards sense of control.
  2. Auditory : use sound reducing ear-muffs which should be available for the difficult noisy experiences.                          In addition implement therapeutic listening -an approach that recognizes that listening goes well beyond the ears and is a function of the brain .
  3. Smell – throw out the house hold garbage on a daily basis.
  4. Vestibular system : Make sure to create opportunities to move at times that are appropriate , like jumping on the trampoline 20 minutes prior to dinner ,so that at dinner time the child won’t have the need to jump around.
  5. proprioceptive input : Have your child help you take out the washing from the washing machine or push the grocery cart at the shop.
