Who would have thought that a few little exercises could make such a difference? Ms. Murray is astoundingly perceptive and was able to discover hidden sources of the difficulties that Nicholas struggled with every day. Ms. Murray was able to prescribe exercises that targeted exactly the difficulties that Nicholas was having. She taught him the exercises and showed me how to do them with him at home. At home the exercises were fun and I could see major changes after just a few sessions. Not only was he succeeding in the areas he had always struggled with, but I noticed he was a happier child all around because he was feeling more capable and secure in his body. These exercises are amazingly powerful.
My eldest daughter was having difficulty with reading and writing. Ruth Murray showed a group of homeschool mothers activities that children can do to improve neurological functioning. After trying these exercises with Katie for several weeks, I noted that Katie's read aloud and writing skills were improving...Her abilities in all areas improved. I am grateful to Ruth for generosity in sharing the "Brain Gym" exercises with me.
I first used Brain Gym to help me learn Italian to prepare for studying overseas. After just one session, I noticed a remarkable improvement in my comfort with the language and ability to recall vocabulary.
I am grateful for the memory improvement I experienced after just a few sessions of Brain Gym therapy with Ruth Murray. The evidence was my increased algebra test scores!
We were concerned and frustrated when our 7th grade son was not achieving academically as we knew he could. He was having difficulty with his language arts assignments. The evening after his session with Ruth, he turned in his spelling sentences as usual. The changes in his spelling, handwriting, sentence structure and word choices were dramatic; the learning-logjam was broken. He had gained the confidence he was lacking. He has met with much academic and personal success ever since. After achieving a 30 on his ACT test, he was accepted at a prestigious university and offered academic scholarships. We are grateful for the intervention Ruth provided at a time when all else was failing.
We'd practiced, we'd drilled, we'd done everything we could think of-- and my 8 year old daughter was no further in memorizing her arithmetic tables than when she'd started. We had her do one session doing movements with Ruth, who gave her some exercises to do at home. In a month, it was hard to remember she'd ever had problems -- things just started clicking for her, and the memorization went easily.
I cannot believe what a difference the exercises make. I was able to stay calm. Thank you so much!!
