BENEFITS: Use of the Brain Gym® movements has been correlated with improvements in certain academic achievements, for example, “Lazy 8s”* with improved eye-muscle coordination (especially for tracking), crossing the visual midline, and for increased integration of the left and right hemispheres. The Brain Gym® “Hook-ups” movement activates left and right hemisphere integration and stimulates the limbic system for emotional reasoning and relaxation. “Hook-ups” also improves balance and coordination.
