Teaching parents to treat their child

(See expanded description below)

With Temprana Therapy parents and caregivers are taught the basics of Reflexology to assist in the treatment and balancing of their child’s health concerns. Parents will learn how to touch specific points and zones on their child’s face, hands and feet. The parent works with the child  at home 3-6 times a week for an age appropriate length of time. If  the rehabilitation skills are used often, parents can help to improve and sustain the child’s general health. This rehabilitation therapy not only improves the child’s health but encourages a loving and personal interaction between parent and child.

Treatment protocols include:

  • Allergies and high fevers
  • Concentration
  • Memory recall
  • Constipation and diarrhea
  • Anxiety in children

  • Learning disabilities
  • Stroke rehabilitation
  • Colic
  • Ear infections

Temprana Therapy  (Expaned Explanation)

Temprana Therapy has been conceived and developed for over 30 years by reflexologist Lone Sorensen. Temprana Therapy methods, techniques and concepts were approved by the Filadelfia Kurhuset State Rehabilitation Center of Denmark in year 2000. This Center specializes in brain damaged and brain dysfunctional clients.

Temprana Therapy is a specialized system in which oriental medicine, South American Indian knowledge and experience, and modern medicine meet to create a new unique therapeutic methodology.

It is based in the combination of different techniques including:

v Face Reflex Stimulation

v Neuro-Foot Reflexology

v Hand Acupressure

v Muscle Stimulation

v Brain Gym

Temprana Therapy is a stimulation of acupressure points, nerve endings and blood vessels. This unique combination of techniques results in a re-establishment of the biochemical flow between the CNS (central nervous system), the hormonal system, and the energy systems of the body.   The main objective is to achieve significant improvements in a person suffering from a variety of issues such as brain-medullar damage, vision, hearing, or learning problems, and/or problems that may have arisen due to a difficult labor and birth, an accident, or a chronic disease.

The different modalities that are part of Temprana Therapy are focused to put the systems of the body in balance.  Without such balancing improvement is questionable. The client’s responses will vary.  This is why Temprana Therapy uses various ways to create different forms of stimulation, to make sure that every structure in the body receives some type of stimulation.

Temprana Therapy can:

v Improve hearing problems, whether their origin is physical or psychological.

v Improve mobility from paralysis or spasticity.

v Assist dyslexics with concentration problems and hyperactivity.

v Help individuals with syndromes like Down’s syndrome utilize his/her abilities to the maximum to help the person live a richer life.

v Allow clients with speech problems, depending on the origin of the problem, potentially recover this function.

v Help accident victims who cannot eat normally because their ability to chew and swallow has been impaired, regain this function.

v Re-balance the body systems of children with epilepsy (whatever the cause or the type of epilepsy might be) to achieve results that could not be thought of with traditional techniques. Many of the children are now medication free and symptoms free!

v Assist autistic children to live as whole and normal life as possible.

In order for Temprana Therapy to function there are four very important considerations:

1)     Early intervention

2)     Frequency of treatment

3)     Constancy of treatment

4)     Professional assessment.

1) “Temprana” means “early” – one of the most important factors to achieve good results is to begin Temprana Therapy as soon as possible after birth, an accident, or an illness.

The sooner Temprana Therapy begins, the better the results.

2) Another factor of great importance is the frequency of sessions.  It is different from case to case and the type of intensity with which the person has to be stimulated, depends upon the seriousness of the individual problems. Usually a session is conducted 3 to 7 times a week, 1 to 2 hours per day.

3) The stimulation must be constant and can last months or years, depending on the situation.

4) It is necessary to have a qualified professional therapist with the ability and depth of knowledge to analyze each child or client individually and to develop the treatment plans and instructions for the parents/caregivers.


The objective of treating children with problems is to allow them to achieve their maximum capabilities, within the limits that his/her problem presents.  So many times we have been amazed at the improvements and results that are achieved with Temprana Therapy, even though conventional medicine and prognosis indicated that such results were impossible.

In summary, Temprana Therapy:

v Improves the quality of life for children and parents.

v Alleviates the challenges and difficulties of daily living, increasing the capacity to learn.

v Provides physical contact with the child, which according to scientific research, is of significant benefit.


ALL children, no matter what their problem is can benefit from Temprana Therapy.  What can differ are the results, which depend on each child’s problem.


The Nervous System is dynamically changing; it organizes itself, it does not follow a pre-established course, it is highly flexible and adaptive, it is never static, and it is always developing new neural networks. This plasticity provides a great potential for change. To achieve this change Temprana Therapy helps simulate change to achieve positive outcomes.

Course for parents

Parents with children with deficiencies or neurological problems are a likely to have the most success from these treatments, due to the fact that these children require daily stimulation for between one to two hours. Parents are instructed in the basic techniques and then work with the child under close supervision and support by a Temprana Therapy Professional Practitioner.
