What is Brain Gym®?
Brain Gym® is a revolutionary means of activating your brain to improve learning. In the Brain Gym work, we teach 26 movements that are the repetition of specific bilateral, contralateral, and other activities to promote efficient communication among the many nerve cells and functional centers located throughout the brain and sensory motor system. These movements are designed to integrate your body and mind in order to improve:
- Visual and Auditory Memory
- Concentration and Focus
- Motivation and Energy
- Math, Reading and Writing
- Physical coordination
In our work, we combine the Brain Gym movements with specific academic tutoring. The synergistic combination of opening up neuro-pathways and one-on-one academic instruction helps students learn easier and retain knowledge longer. At Integrated Learning Academy we achieve breakthrough results and elevate student performance by one or more grade levels in just 12 weeks.

“Jeannette’s work with Brain Gym is nothing short of miraculous. I was privileged to watch her work with my 11 year old son, who at the time was very apprehensive and was doing poorly in school. My son loved his experience and is performing much better in school since his session with Jeannette. Not only has the quality of his work improved, but his confidence has grown and he has a much better attitude in general. I was especially surprised at how open and engaged my son was with Jeannette. She created a very safe space immediately and they dove right in together. Not only is the process fun and easy, but Jeannette’s approach is gentle and nurturing. I’d recommend Brain Gym with Jeannette Abshire to people of all ages who would like to see permanent change in their life, doing something fun with a person they can trust. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
