How to get Started

Orientation

Understanding leads to commitment and commitment leads to success. The orientation is required before beginning to work with Adele, whether for yourself or your child. The orientation class will provide a fuller understanding of MNRI® and how Adele utilizes other modalities to support the integration process. Learn whether this is the right fit for you and your family and understand the commitment it takes to see success.

After registering for the orientation, a link will be sent to review the video, taking approximately 45 minutes. After watching the video, reply to Adele your interest in moving forward and she will send you the intake forms and set up an initial session or you can discuss further questions first. If this is for your child, it is strongly recommended that both parents watch the video.

Evaluation

Once you have completed the Orientation class the Intake Questionnaire will be sent to you. The first session will be scheduled once that is received. For those pursuing MNRI® for their child, the first appointment will be focused on evaluating reflexes and learning the beginning home program which is based upon the questionnaire.

After initial appointment you will receive a report explaining the results of the evaluation and a general overview of the plan. $215 for one child, $330 for two children. If a child cannot participate in a full evaluation, then a general observation will be done while teaching the beginning home program, the rate for this will be $175.

During the evaluation process, Adele takes a person through a series of movements. Some movements are done independently; some Adele moves their body thru along with asking the person to hold position. These give Adele indications of which reflexes are still active and the degree to which they are integrated if at all. She also takes note of muscular imbalances or weakness and looks at the overall stress in the nervous system.

After the evaluation, you will receive a report explaining the results of the evaluation and a general overview of the plan.

Adele intends for the education of techniques she provides to be a family empowerment program. Each family determines how much support they need. Consistency of the home program is one of the determining factors in how much change is created and for many, the biggest challenge. Some families choose to return every 4 -6 weeks for program adjustments others come on a more regular basis. Length of appointments are 30-60 minutes. When coming to regular support appointments, more areas are addressed by Adele beyond what is being done at home.

*For those not in the area, but wishing to work on integrating reflexes; all programs will be developed based upon the questionnaire and subsequent discussions. Reflex evaluations cannot be done via Zoom.

Home Program

Taking all of these things into consideration, along with the age and personality of the individual, Adele then develops a movement program for a person to do at home. She chooses these movements from various modalities to integrate the reflexes and physically balance and strengthen the body.The program usually takes 15-30 minutes and is done several times a week.

Again, consistency is the key to success.  Adele is just your guide to give you the tools needed to help heal. Success is dependent on your motivation and determination to do the program at home. It is absolutely thrilling that we have the power to enhance our neurological functioning and make our lives easier in just minutes a day using our own bodies!

Purchase the Parent Guide

I strongly recommend purchasing the Parent Guide from the MNRI® site HERE. This will give you additional support as you begin to learn techniques along with the Archetype DVD.

The DVD are movements that help begin to coordinate the nervous system. Even if your child does not engage in the movements, you doing them while they are in the room will trigger the mirror neurons of their body and assist them. I would recommend doing them several times a week. The DVD moves very slow and once you are comfortable with the movements, feel free to move more quickly thru them. If you child engages, it is good to make them playful. Playing music they enjoy while doing it is great too.
