Time to Focus

Learning is a complex task of the mind and body. There are many ways to enhance the learning experience as well as focus to task by engaging many senses.

Music

Time to Focus

Music

Studies support the role of music in brain stimulation. There is a well established relationship between classical music and learning. Many teachers across the world are beginning to play classical music during math or quite work. There is also more and more coming out related to exposure to all kinds of music, as well as active participation, such as singing and dancing. The sound of ones own voice stimulates the vestibular system. There are many examples of song and rhythm associated with learning and retention (think about the United States song).

Time to Focus

Touch

Including a lot of touch play and learning may be crucial for cognitive development. Just think of our earliest stages of development. Touch is a way of experiencing our world. More meaningful experiences improve brain function and retention.

Smell

Time to Focus

Smell

When we talk about smell, I mean both the good and the not so good type. Smell stimulates the brain and helps us with experiences.  What do you think of when you smell popcorn or home baked cookies.

Meet Crystal

Doctor, Mom and Advocate for Children's Health and Well Being

My Favorite PT

My name is Crystal and I work hard to make Physical Therapy FUN and engaging. I have been a practicing Doctor of Physical Therapy for 12 years (although the kids guess my age to be anywhere from 8 to 80 years old!). My wholistic view on health is centered around providing the tools, resources and sometimes unconventional approaches that will truly impact and improve the lives of everyone around me. I have a wide range of experience and environments including professional athletes, dancers, Broadway performers, hospitals, children’s hospitals, post surgical, manual therapy, schools (of course) and many other settings I have been lucky enough to a part of as well.
