NeuroElements For Children
We took our grandson to Jackie’s workshop for Special Needs children on the remote possibility that she might be able to help him walk better. He has mild cerebral Palsy and walks on his toes. At the workshop we noticed how he became more erect in posture and seemed to rest more comfortably through his spine. In his 2nd session, his neck seemed to lengthen out of his shoulders making him significantly taller. His 3T size shirts were suddenly too short and his belly button stuck out. We used to roll up his pants with two rolls but suddenly they were good at only one roll now.
In his 3rd session his lower back freed up and he now moves with a hip shake, baby, to beat the band. His prehensile toes, frozen feet and ankles are gone. He is developing an arch in those flat feet.
In session 4 his heels came down and his habitual toe walk, though he tried, was no longer available. It was so new to him walking with his whole foot and this will take a little more time to reeducate himself.
It is not just I noticing these remarkable changes. His teacher and Aikido instructor as well as many others are amazed and asking who is this Jackie person? You mean like miracle worker?
After eight months with the former physical therapist and AMA Doctor, they said he'd have a crouched gate and be in braces for the rest of his life. Not with Jackie Mason on the job!
With Love and deepest gratitude,

The transition to enjoying physical activities again was huge for this seven year old who has mild cerebral palsy. Jackie found an activity she could have some success in - hula hooping. It was no longer necessary to ignore her body. Afetr her hula hooping success she became interested in dance, sports and many other activities, with Jackie helping her find ways to improve.

A new 'miracle' drug treating SMA II has made it possible for this four year old to relearn lost functionality. The setback she experienced with lost functionality was great because she could no longer control her head to lift it. Slowly as the drug restores her nervous system so that all muscles are firing she is gaining strength enough to relearn all functionality.

NeuroElements In Education
Studies show that we learn best from tactile activities. The Montessori and Waldorf approach to education include the premise that children learn better from tactile methods. Many countries are recognizing the value of integrating activities into their learning environments and students are learning better as a result.
Science also shows that the quality of how we function directly results in better quality critical thinking skills. Children experience injuries and trauma that adversely affect how they function. Although exercise is encouraged, there is no awareness or intent to help children resolve and overcome limitations resulting from injury and trauma. Until now.
Our approach enhances how children approach any function so they can reach their full potential. Integrating it into any classroom activity will create a new generation of critical thinkers far beyond previous generations. Included in better functionality is a greater feel of the ramifications and consequences of behaviors and actions that naturally lead to more compassionate, considerate, and empathetic human beings.
Implementing this approach in all educational institutions from K-12 on can help every child reach their full potential.
Trauma Recovery For Children
No active child gets into adulthood without bumps along the way. Science now knows that the brain creates neural maps of every bump with its associated physical limitations and emotional associations. Our approach helps your child rewrite the neural maps to fully recover physical functionality and resolve the emotional associations so they just become memories without any triggers.
Trauma and injury in children can lead to functional and cognitive limitations. Experience the tremendous joy and satisfaction of seeing kids transform to fully recover physically, emotionally, and spiritually so they can truly reach their full potential in any endeavor.
NeuroElements for Children With Special Needs
Our approach is particularly powerful for children with functional and cognitive limitations. It helps children gain independence and cognition by integrating the five elements of the approach into all they do.
Children that had dire prognoses predicting limited cognitive development and institutionalization by doctors were happily proven wrong as those children gained cognition and physical functionality that, in may cases allowed them to transfer to regular classrooms with their peers. Some of those kids are at the top of their class today.
Any gain in functionality is a step toward greater independence and better cognition. Our approach could literally save billions of dollars by reducing the need for services and institutionalization of people with disabilities. Over 20% of the worlds population are people with disabilities so this is no small measure of potential savings.
