Reflexlocomotion is the technique for the treatment of physical and mental impairment in humans, discovered by
Václav Vojta. Sometimes referred to as the Vojta Method.
Based on studies of treatments for spastic children for muscular disorders in the 1950's, a number of reflex points were identified which can be used to stimulate the human body to
crawland turn. By applying pressure to the appropriate reflex points the major muscle groups in the body are activated, breathing becomes regulated and mental activity increases.
