Helping Children with Learning Difficulties!

Sunflower therapy (also known as the Sunflower Method) is a holistic healing approach intended to help children with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD. It involves a number of techniques, including applied kinesiology, physical manipulation, massage, homeopathy, herbal remedies and Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).

The Sunflower Trust was founded in 1995 in the UK by Mark Mathews, a Guildford osteopath.

The Sunflower Therapy is a new and effective approach to helping children with learning and behaviour difficulties.

In a comprehensive step by step process, the child's muscular-skeletal system, neurological responses, diet, nutrition and psychological state are assessed and treated naturally.

Research shows that this method can bring children greater health, happiness and confidence, and ability to achieve more of their own potential.
