Functional Reflex Therapy
What is Functional Reflex Therapy?
The Functional Reflex Therapy Framework supports the mental health and well-being of children and adults with high levels of anxiety and stress, Autism and Autistic Spectrum Disorders, intellectual difficulties, neurological disorders and communication issues. It is also also an enjoyable and beneficial experience for more vulnerable adults with dementia and Alzheimer;s Disease.
FRT may reduce stress, anxiety, relieve tension, help improve mood, encourage engagement, social interaction and increase receptiveness.
