7 steps to calm

Struggling With a Child’s Behavior?

It’s here!
Your special invitation…

Be the first to experience our new on-demand program to support children.

7 Steps to Calm is a seven-week on-demand program needing only minutes a day for specific movements to help calm your child and restore peace at home.

What is the basis of the program?

Over the past 15 years we found that when your child’s micromovements (tiny movements within the body) are disorganized due to birth, injuries or medical procedures, their behavior and coordination are disorganized too. When gentle rocking and wiggling movements are used to guide your child’s body into better organization, the behavior, sensory, focus and coordination improve too!

Our name for the process is the Bridging® Technique. It is an engineering-based approach within an early developmental hierarchy, so the results are self-sustaining. Read more

Struggling with a Child’s Behavior?

The Link between Micromovements and Behaviors

Behavioral Reactions: Even-tempered? Anxious? Quick-tempered?

Your child’s temperament should be able to shift up and down to meet the changing situations of their days and weeks. Their reactions should rise to meet the occasion and then calm back down. This is known as modulation.

Stress happens when a child’s behavior ramps up like a rocket or gets stuck in high alert. Both of these are examples of poor modulation. Read more

The Story of Your Life:
Micromovements Tell It All!

Micromovements and the stories they reveal …

Your movements tell your story

One of the primary principles in the Bridging® Technique is to analyze a set of passive movements where we do the moving, not you.

These movements tell the story of how your body is actually getting you through the day. When we find a glitch, hitch, or skip, it is usually the source of your pain, weakness, and poor coordination. Read more

Bridging Technique

What is Bridging?

Bridge /ˈbrij/

noun: A time, place, or means of connection or transition.

You most commonly think of a bridge as, literally, the structure connecting two points.

In my electrical engineering coursework (way back when), a ‘bridge’ was a connection between circuits, or audio systems.

Most people think separately of the body’s structural and nervous (electrical) systems. In reality, the two are highly intertwined by movement. The intersection of the physical structural system and nervous system is at the heart of the Bridging Technique. Read more

Is Your Arm Aching Following the Vaccine? 😫

Have you gotten your Covid vaccine yet?

Does your arm or shoulder have pain, swelling, and stiffness?

At Kinetic Konnections we find vaccines (flu or Covid) tend to block micromovements in your arm and shoulder area.

When the micromovements change, the pain and stiffness go away. It’s that straight forward. I made the video below to guide you through improving the post-vaccine micromovements on your own. Read more

Slip and Fall? Three Ways Bridging® Can Help

Two days, three clients with falls. ‘Tis the season!

Only two days back in the office in the new year and we’ve seen three clients recovering from injuries related to falls. So many ways to slip and fall — stairs, sidewalk, and tripping. Please be careful!

As we worked through the Bridging movements with each client, they all felt the tension in their body relax in ways they didn’t even realize they needed. Balance was restored along with ease of motion. Read more
