When combining Brain Integration Technique / Crossinology with Reflex Integration it is best to tailor the reflex integrating exercises to the specific BIT corrections you are working on. For example, when working with the Amygdala, work reflexes associated with fight and flight (sympathetic nervous system(SNS)). Or the Corpus Collusum corrections go nicely with Babkin Palmomental. BIT uses the Frontal Occipital hold (FO hold), which is essentially an emotional / energetic correction. This is a quick way to drop stress on a specific circuit, but it lacks stickiness in the real world and if BIT corrections are not quickly utilized, they tend to dissolve within a few months. This is the main complaint with BIT and all other Energy Kinesiology Modalities (NAET etc.) By activating the Brain Stem neurology with reflex work you are much more likely to utilize the new pathways and thereby stick the corrections.
Evidence of how different this makes BIT (Applied Physiology – Richard Utt) is that it is important to be aware of saturation as we can only change as fast as we can. Using FO hold you can do BIT for 8 hours a day as you are continually dropping emotional stress. Adding in Reflex Integration, you will be lucky to get a full hour in before the child’s protective mechanisms kick in. This is tough on the practitioner, but exactly what you want for the child, as when they take this out in the playground or to study, they will have this change in their body, not just in their emotional control mechanism. The change is buffered from new stressors.
I responded to an inquiry about BIT with the following:
I apologize for my lack of clarity in the BIT posts, it perhaps reflects my level of comfort and comprehension on this subject. I have spent several hundred hours training and doing BIT protocols with clients, with varying results. I have personally experienced dramatic shifts in my own cognitive capacity and have had clients tell me it was life changing. I have also had people tell me it was the least productive therapy they have ever experienced. Discussing this topic with Susan McCrossin has been un-illuminating. My assumption is that some people are more responsive than others to energetic interventions.
