“I use this program every day and have yet to see anyone who doesn’t love it and benefit. I have looked at dozens of programs for relaxation, breathing, imagery, etc. and LifeMoves is still far and away the best one. We use LifeMoves as a component in an integrative approach to hospitalized patients, and I also recommend it for home use as a tool to help quiet the mind and body.” Timothy Culbert, MD, FAAP

“As an occupational therapist specializing in sensory processing, I have been thrilled at what MeMoves is doing in classrooms, home programs, and direct therapy as it immediately calms and organizes children. Within minutes it calms even nonverbal children with autism in distress! Increased eye contact, decreased self stim, increased vocalizations, increased arm awareness, strength, and alert state are common and consistently seen. MeMoves has been an exciting addition to the therapy routines!” Nancy Lawton-Shirley, OTR/L

“The apparent simplicity of this program can be deceptive, but the results of frequent or even intermittent use are quite startling. Clinically we are noting changes in calm state, social interaction, expressive language, attention, behavioral organization and imitation, and group unity.” Eileen W. Richter, MPH, OTR/L, FAOTA

“I have been an Occupational Therapist for 38 years. I have worked with people of various abilities and disabilities, ranging in age from 3 months to 101 years, and across clinic settings to include an acute care setting (hospital), nursing home (pediatric), nursing home (geriatric), home care (pediatric and geriatric) and school settings.

In all that time, and across all ages, settings and abilities, the key component of successful therapy intervention is for the client to be able to focus on treatment. Without focus, learning cannot take place, and re-learning (rehabilitation) is compromised. The brain requires focus to hard-wire neurons in order to get reliable, automatic cognitive and motor responses to the environment.

Research tells us that a precursor to focus is stress reduction to a manageable level. Research also tells us that slow, repetitive, and rhythmic sensation calms the nervous system.

I am very happy to see LifeMovesTM as a product specifically for the adult population. I can envision it being used in a variety of rehab settings. Following illness or injury, movement is stressful both emotionally and physically. Patients are nervous about re-injury, pain, and the unknown future of recouping their previous level of function. Some will re-injure themselves in their eagerness to recover. Others will not reach their potential out of fear. LifeMoves can be used in both arenas to help clients stay calm and focused.

Obviously, I am a big fan of your product. I believe its simplicity, rhythmic music and movement, friendly faces, and visual effects combine to create an incredible experience for those who use it!” Sharon Gregoire OTR/L

“This is a program I have consistently recommended to the hundreds of teachers, social workers, clinicians, mental health, and occupational therapists I have met and trained the past few years. The research and practice-based outcomes definitely demonstrate that in just a few minutes a day everyone, especially those struggling with anxiety, trauma and or sensory processing issues realize improved regulation of behaviors and nervous system functioning.” Dr. William Steele

“I’ve been involved with neuroscience as a base of activity for a very long time and I’m so impressed with the foundations that LifeMoves brings. This is a very subtle way to come and change peoples’ brains and behavior, and they don’t even have to know it! I strongly recommend LifeMoves and I think as we go forward we’re going to compile a lot more of the neuroscience that relates to this work. It looks like such a simple activity, but it’s really not.” Patricia Wilbarger, MEd, OTR, FAOTA

Occupational Therapist and Clinical Psychologist, developed the concept of “sensory diet,” designed the Wilbarger Deep Pressure and Proprioceptive Technique (DPPT) and the Oral Tactile Technique (OTT) for sensory defensiveness

“This program has proven to be an essential therapeutic tool in our Vision Therapy Clinic. All of our patients with Autism engage in it. Research regarding Mirror Neurons give me hope that LifeMoves is tapping into this process, providing those with Autism an opportunity to more easily understand the intentions of others. I think that all clinics who work with those with Autism should use this wonderful tool.” Dr. Carl Hillier, OD FCOVD
