The Newborn Movement Assessment™: The Evaluation and Stimulation of an Infant's Developmental Movements. The first guide with step-by-step instructions on how to evaluate and enhance your newborn baby’s development. Using the B.R.I.G.H.T. system: Birthing process, assessing the Rotation, and Initiating a Gentle Healthy Touch. This method will then equip you with a better understanding and deeper insight into your baby's personal development—leading to a brighter future for the next generation.

ML™ is a therapeutic approach to optimize an individuals movements through touch. By assessing any weakness in the initiation of movement. ML™ can identify and reinforce rotation within an action, increasing range of motion. ML™ application uses three key steps - initiate, stimulate and enhance functional development.
