The frontier of 
Mind/Body Healing Dr. Robert Weissfeld About NeurOntogenics
L.E.A.P. (Learning Enhancement Advanced Program) is a kinesiology-based program designed to improve learning ability, creativity, and mind/body coordination by pinpointing and addressing specific areas of the brain that affect learning, and relieving their individual stress patterns that may result from head injury, other physical or emotional trauma, or unknown factors of origin.
Recent understandings suggest that most learning disabilities do not stem from a single, specific area of the brain, but rather from difficulties in bringing together information from various brain regions. L.E.A.P. systematically evaluates stress or imbalance in specific areas of the brain related to learning, and their  ability to interrelate,  and allows targeted treatment of those that show stress.
The L.E.A.P. technique specifically relieves stress as it affects aptitude, motivation and performance. The human brain performs extremely complicated electro-magnetic functions and, like any other organ, shows symptoms of stress. Under stress, the brain's blood supply is redirected for 'fight' or 'flight' in the body, and the higher brain logic and creative centers progressively shut down. With this shutdown, the synchronicity of brain function is lost and we just cannot 'think' clearly, we can only react. The more automatic programs take over the show. We blame ourselves for not trying hard enough, when the true culprit is disturbance in brain integration. The brain switches off when we could be welcoming new experiences. The LEAP program can help children and adults to restore appropriate patterns of brain activity to use more of their potential.

Many can benefit from LEAP, students may wish to relieve exam anxiety with the LEAP techniques, executives may want the LEAP techniques to maximize organizational skills, including goal setting and planning. Athletic ability can be enhanced using the LEAP techniques for children and adults. Eye/hand coordination, gross and fine motor skills, stamina and energy levels can often be significantly improved following the LEAP Brain Integration procedures resulting in enhanced sports performance and general coordination. Below are just some of the problems LEAP can help correct.



LEAP – Learning Enhancement Advanced Program, systematically addresses functional aspects of learning, including perceptual and motor aspects of function as well as internal organization of the brain, using therapies derived from acupuncture and chiropractic. LEAP is a method that is based on the understanding that much of what happens following TBI is the establishment of new, less than optimal modes of physiological function. While most rehabilitation methods attempt to retrain the brain/body using an additive relearning model, LEAP uses a neurontogenic model of treatment.

Neurontogenic therapies employ a subtractive or eliminative model to restore latent normal function without specific retraining. The foundation of LEAP, then, is based on the idea that normal function is not lost, rather it becomes buried under post-traumatic adaptations that occur directly from and following brain injury. Thus, LEAP is most effective when actual organic damage is not present or minimal, as in mild to moderate TBI.

Expanding beyond LEAP, which is focused on brain organization and cognitive issues,   the neurontogenic therapies (neuro-behavioral approaches to rehabilitation, wherein learned patterns of behavior are systematically addressed and eliminated as the cause of altered behavior) are also applied to other areas of posttraumatic function, neuromuscular and emotional PTSD symptoms.

To illustrate imagine you hired a consultant to help you make sure an important project gets done at work. The project includes duties distributed among various departments and employees within those departments. The consultant makes sure that the work environment is clean and that the employee cafeteria is open and serving nutritious food. Poorly nourished workers won’t think well. She then polls each department, asking if there is stress in the department, and attempts to remove internal departmental stress. Polling the mail room gives an indication of whether information is getting in and out. We then see if each department can communicate with each other department. Because each employee already knows her job, the project can then continue more smoothly.  

LEAP helps the brain to be more organized, get information in and out, and have communication between the various parts so as to act appropriately on that information.  That will take care of many issues around processing of information.  It is an unknown the extent to which it will solve any particular problem.  

The process you go through with LEAP also addresses tension and pain in the body as a ‘side effect’ because we are working with the body to address the brain.  It also works with PTSD and specific factors of 'undigested' emotion or trauma memory that may be affecting brain function, so relaxation may also be a side effect of the work.
