Miracle in Motion®

Rocking during pregnancy can improve neurodevelopment in the womb and reduce pain during labor. Rocking after birth can improve balance and blood circulation reducing postpartum muscle pains and it can provoke the infant’s vestibular system, stimulating growth and respiratory regulation. Rocking has been a long-time remedy for infant irritability associated with colic/gas and it encourages physical contact, strengthening the bond/attachment between a parent and child. Rocking can benefit both mothers and infants alike by increasing the release of endorphins in the brain, improving mood and reducing anxiety, stress, and depression. Stress reduction can promote better and longer breastmilk production.

The motion of rocking can activate the mechanoreceptors located in the skin, muscles, and joints. This allows electrical signals to travel from the spine to the brain. This can promote normal or enhanced activation and functioning of neurons. This can have a profound effect on restoring proper function and in turn can create positive changes in a wide variety of issues or ailments.

- Dr. Edward Zigler | Yale University

Dementia

“Patients with Alzheimer's disease who rock for 1-2 hr per day in a rocking chair demonstrate significant improvements in depression, anxiety, and balance and a decrease in pain medication usage.”

- Binghamton University

ADHD

“The study of pre-teens and teenagers examined how movement — its intensity — correlated with accuracy on cognitively demanding tasks. Participants who moved more intensely exhibited substantially better cognitive performance.”

- University of California

Stress / Anxiety

“When I have a couple, or parents or even friends where one or both individuals experience anxiety, stress, PTSD… I teach them how to do therapeutic rocking.”

- Leslie E. Korn | Ph.D., MPH, LMHC, ACS, NTP

- University of Geneva

- Dr. Barry L. Marks

Cerebral Palsy

"Gentle rocking can help your child with cerebral palsy get accustomed to shifting their weight, adjusting their posture, and feeling more at ease in motion."

- Flint Rehab

SOOTHING

"One essayist suggests that all one needs to relieve stress and improve one’s overall health is to hold a baby and rock. The questions surrounding relaxation is not whether we should occasionally sit in a rocker, but how long we should do this."

- Amy Gagliardi | Yale University

AUTISM

“Every autistic child should have a rocker in his/her room."

- Anna Jean Ayres | Occupational therapist, educational psychologist and advocate for individuals with special needs. Known for her work on sensory integration (SI) theory.

Labor

"Rocking is healthy for the mother as well as for the baby. Women who rock their infants in a rocking chair for 1 hour a day recover faster after cesarean delivery."

- Amy Gagliardi | Yale University

NERVOUS SYSTEM

"After extensive studies, NASA determined that the most effective procedure to bring back the livelihood of the autonomic nervous systems post extended time in space was to rock and bounce returning astronauts."

- NASA

Cognitive

“The rocking motion soothes the brain and facilitates concentration along with the ability to think logically, which provides overall better cognitive processing.”

- Gerry Vassar | President/CEO, Lakeside Educational Network

PAIN MANAGEMENT

"Rocking can tap into the parasympathetic nervous system. This is the sedative side of the nervous system and therefore good for pain management.”

- Physiotherapist Brad Beer | AMAZON Best Selling Author

Depression

“During my clinical fellowship at a Harvard teaching hospital, I rocked patients who were suicidal and called 'borderline' (they were really trauma survivors).”

- Leslie E. Korn | Ph.D., MPH, LMHC, ACS, NTP

CONCENTRATION

“The student who was bouncing was providing themselves with additional sensory stimulation and the child who was rocking was calming themselves and thus decreasing sensory stimulation; both were able to improve their learning outcomes.”

- Georgia State University

FIBROMYALGIA

“Rocking can ease chronic pain. A group of women with fibromyalgia, rocked for 10 minutes, 3 times weekly, for 16 weeks. They reported a sense of calmness and said that helped manage their pain."

- University of North Carolina at Greensboro

SUBSTANCE ABUSE

"Rocking helps self-soothe urges and desires to drink. A significant association was observed between a greater number of minutes spent rocking with fewer urges and desires that are connected with the intent and plan to drink."

- University of Alabama | VA Medical Center

VERTIGO

“Vestibular rehabilitation therapy, such as rocking, can help patients with vestibular dysfunction, such as vertigo and episodes of dizziness.”

- Baylor College of Medicine

POST OPERATION

"A study looked at how long it took patients who’d undergone surgery for abdominal cancer to pass gas, a process that’s indicative of their recovery. The group who rocked post-surgery passed gas 16.8 hours earlier than those who didn’t."

- University of Texas M.D.

ARTHRITIS

"Rocking can reduce the impact of diseases such as arthritis. This is because the increased blood flow sends more oxygen to the joints while the relaxation effect boosts the immune system."
- Jane Chitty | Writer | Healing Natural Oils

Balance

“A gentle rocking motion helps stimulate the vestibular system, which helps maintain balance.”

- School of Nursing at the University of Rochester
