Brain Integration Technique (BIT) was developed in 1988 by Susan McCrossin. Crossinololgy is a cutting-edge technique based on principles of Applied Physiology and Acupressure that assesses and corrects learning difficulties in children and adults. BIT is completely non-invasive and is suitable for people of all ages. In fact, most clients report that BIT is a very soothing and relaxing experience. BIT specifically relieves stress as it affects aptitude, resilience and performance. This treatment helps all kinds of learning difficulties such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) both with and without hyperactivity, sensory integration, dyslexia, poor coordination, closed head traumas and brain injuries (TBI), autistic spectrum disorders, trauma and nervous breakdowns. Virtually everyone can benefit from BIT. Brain Integration can help both gifted people and those that struggle academically.
Most treatments involve medication, giving on-going exercises to do indefinitely, purely removing emotional stress, or changing the format of how material is presented to the student. The work we do actually changes the functioning of the brain.
We are changing the brain function from the inside out, not the outside in. This involves making sure that information comes in through the eyes and ears and is directed to the correct location within the brain with the correct timing. When this is established, function is restored.
Part of this treatment may involve ensuring that the right and left sides of the brain are able to process information simultaneously across the corpus callosum that connects them (as many academic functions require both hemispheres to be active at the same time). A typical person with learning difficulties will have very limited communication through their corpus callosum. An individual may therefore have to rely mostly on one hemisphere for all their processing of information. This can create processing delays, failure to create or retrieve memories, frustration, and loss of self-esteem.
In addition to every aspect of the physiological functions involved in learning, we address the emotional subconscious to remove any relevant blocks to learning as well.
The total time for a complete Brain Integration is between 15-20 hours.
