Through learning one skill at a time, combining skills into skill sets and then by those combining skill sets we give our brain’s and body’s the ability and capacity to thrive after a brain injury.
During the past 18 years, I have worked on an ongoing process of engaging both the left and the right side of my brain and body through repetitive mirrored movements. I have done so to engage and enhance the dominant (right) and non-dominant (left) sides of my body.
Using repetitive mirrored movements to increase my brain’s and my body’s ability and capacity to thrive.
In the process, my hand-eye coordination, coordination, balance, body awareness and agility have increased on my dominant and non-dominant sides of my body.

What I have learned about myself
In my experience and because I have a difficult time learning sequences. With this awareness, I have developed a strategy to learn sequences of information. The strategy includes learning one skill at a time through endless repetitions. Once I have learned one skill, I work on learning another skill through another set of endless repetitions. Through combining both of those skills, I create a skill set. I then repeat the process of creating many skills and skill sets through endless repetitions.
By combining these skills and skill sets I am able to increase my brain’s and body’s ability and capacity to thrive.
I have created a power point presentation that I would invite you to view by clicking on the below link.
On February 24, 2017, my friend Isaac took some time out of his busy schedule to create a video presentation of how I am using repetitive mirrored movements.

Below are links to short video presentations showing the progression of how repetitive mirrored movements have benefited my mind and body. The progress made spans over each of the past 5 years. Click on the below links and they will open for you on YouTube.
Why I Share the Above with You
I share this short video presentation with to encourage you, if you have not already begun, to engage in your own program. A program of repetitive mirrored movements to increase your brain’s and your body’s ability and capacity to thrive after a brain injury.
And has been with my process, your progress may seem slow too. But don’t give up. Stay committed to your process.
