"We place our trust in God to guide our staff and lead our patients toward greater function."
Empire sees all ages but specializes in infant feeding and development, cerebral palsy, and concussion care. We welcome you to create a new perspective of preventative and therapeutic care. We are the trailblazers in the Inland Northwest with the Empire Method in primitive reflex integration.
"Education of the nervous system through body work and primitive reflex integration to improve the efficiency of processing sensory information for functional outcomes."
Sensory information comes into the body and is organized by the brain. Our brain then sends the appropriate signal back to the muscles for our bodies to react. That circut is called a reflex. By the time a child walks they have full development of their primitive reflexes which allow for correct alignment and function for their rest of their lives. Activating all 22 reflexes soon after birth provides your child with the best possible preventative care.
Empire strives to provide their employees with extensive training for the most benefit for everyone we serve. In the last six years, employees of Empire have spent more than 2500 hours in certified continuing education courses in manual and neurological rehab.
Part of our extensive training is about how a reflex is not firing correctly. Some reflexes may have not emerged and other pathways stop firing due to physical or emotional trauma. We are able to "connect the dots" for the brain. Replicating this reflex is important, so a home program is key. Call us today, it's never too late and your are never too old to make your life easy.
