An Integrative Treatment Approach for Cerebral Palsy and Brain Trauma

By Dr. Nishi Bhatt,

Integrated Medicine Practitioner

In children, cerebral palsy injuries and brain traumas can exert a substantial influence on their motor development and physical capabilities. Dr. Nishi Bhatt, an experienced integrated medicine practitioner with more than a decade of expertise in caring for neurodiverse children, has personally observed the difficulties these youngsters face. Contrary to common misconceptions that exclusively relying on Western medicine yields no benefits once there are no positive outcomes, Dr. Nishi has encountered and overcome such challenges. She has found that with the right interventions, remarkable improvements can be realized within a relatively brief timeframe.

Cerebral palsy and other neurological impairments present significant challenges in treatment due to their impact on motor skills, cognition, behavior, and sensory processing. Present treatments, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and medications, offer temporary relief, but symptoms tend to resurface once these interventions are discontinued. Despite these challenges, Dr. Nishi has formulated a distinctive treatment approach that takes a holistic perspective, effectively alleviating symptoms for extended periods even when her therapies are no longer actively administered to the child.

What is Naadi Yoga?

Naadi yoga is an evidence-based alternative therapeutic approach developed by Dr. Nishi Bhatt that utilizes subtle energy techniques to enhance overall functioning and independence. At its core, Naadi yoga recognizes that health, ability, and well-being arise from the balanced flow of prana, or vital life force energy, throughout the human energy system.

The goal of these therapies is to enhance individuals' ability for energy to move freely, process sensory information adaptively, and engage confidently within their environment by restoring harmony to the subtle energetic body and release the trauma and move body back to its perfect state.

During the course of the last 15 years, Dr. Bhatt has enhanced Naadi yoga through the integration of various therapies, including acupressure, and those previously mentioned. This personalized approach is meticulously designed to align with the individual energetics of each patient, considering their medical background and condition, along with utilizing modern diagnostic tools such as digital assessments like MRI, fMRI, CT scans, Bera, and visual parameters. These therapies address root energetic imbalances rather than just addressing surface symptoms. Dr. Bhatt helps clear obstructions and rebalance the natural circulation of prana through non-invasive energy work.

Close to 40,000 individuals have successfully derived safe and effective benefits from Naadi yoga. They have discovered relief from incapacitating challenges, such as chronic pain, spasticity, seizures, emotional detachment, low IQ, motor dysfunctions, global developmental delay, and more. Moreover, these individuals have witnessed enhancements in their overall functioning, ultimately leading to healthier and more fulfilling lives. The parents and guardians of children, in particular, consistently return to Dr. Bhatt due to the approach's effectiveness, which fosters enduring well-being from within.


Most people think that it takes a long time for therapies that combine different approaches to work. However, Naadi yoga is different because it can bring about positive changes relatively quickly. What's even more impressive is that it's very effective, especially for neurological disorders. Instead of just treating the symptoms, Naadi yoga looks at the underlying causes of these issues and helps improve overall well-being, often leading to noticeable improvements faster than you might think.

Understanding Subtle Anatomy and Prana:

Much like the way chi kung maps out vulnerable pressure points, Naadiyoga has a deep knowledge of the body's subtle energetic anatomy. There are specific energy points, known as meridians, that have an impact on organic functions and structure when manipulated. Naadiyoga therapies aims to enhance the physical and mental energies of the entire body by targeting specific points in a transformative manner.


When the energy within us circulates unimpeded through these key points, we can attain peak health, and a child's body can return to its inherent state of perfection. Nevertheless, structural damage, immune disorders, genetic predispositions, or emotional trauma can obstruct these points, diminishing our body's natural defenses and rendering us more vulnerable to illness. The techniques employed in Naadi yoga are aimed at clearing these blockages and reestablishing a state of pranic equilibrium, thus promoting overall well-being.

How does the Dr Nishi’s treatment work?

Through engagement in her therapeutic activities, she utilizes specific handling techniques to facilitate adaptive motor responses from the patient. During a crawling activity, for instance, Dr. Bhatt may apply downward pressure on the patient's lower back to elicit extension, promote weight-shifting, and facilitate an adaptive motor response.

The sessions are personalized according to the evaluation. Dr. Bhatt’s therapies focuses on functional, goal-oriented activities that are meaningful to the patient. For example, a child may practice standing while "brushing" a doll's hair to improve balance and bilateral coordination while participating in a motivating activity.

These therapeutic methods adopt a foundational approach that commences with the cultivation of basic motor and reflexive skills, progressing gradually towards more intricate capabilities. The therapist carefully arranges activities in a sequence, starting with the simplest tasks and gradually moving towards more challenging ones, thereby building upon emerging skills.


Naadi yoga is administered in one-on-one sessions with a licensed Naadi yoga therapist. During each session, her team conducts a comprehensive evaluation of the patient to assess their strengths, challenges, and clinical priorities. Based on the evaluation, Dr. Bhatt develops a personalized Naadi yoga plan with specific techniques customized to the patient's needs.

The core methods of Naadi yoga include:

  • Tactile input - techniques that apply controlled touch to the skin and joints to facilitate motor responses. For example, brushing, stroking, applying deep pressure, and performing joint compressions.

  • Proprioceptive input - activities that provide sensory feedback from the muscles and joints. Examples include resistance exercises, active motor tasks with resistance, and joint compressions.

  • Vestibular input - techniques that stimulate the vestibular system in the inner ear to facilitate enhanced coordination and muscle tone. Examples include swinging, rocking, spinning, and acupressure.

  • Visual-motor integration - activities that require visual tracking, eye-hand coordination, bilateral coordination, and sequencing skills. Puzzles, games, and crafts are commonly used.

  • Basics of movement - exercises that focus on postural control, balance reactions, muscle strengthening, and range of motion. Examples include rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, and walking.

  • Self-care and daily living skills - practicing activities of daily living skills such as dressing, and hygiene to improve and enhance the functionality of real-world tasks.

  • Sensory diet - a personalized schedule for the patient to receive appropriate sensory input throughout the day to meet sensory needs and improve regulation.


Research has shown Naadi yoga to be highly effective for infants, children, and adults with neurological, developmental, orthopedic, or sensory conditions. Some potential benefits include:

  • Improved motor skills, such as sitting, standing, walking, reaching, grasping, and fine motor coordination.

  • Enhanced sensory processing through the modulation of sensation. sensations. Better regulation of arousal states, social participation, and behavioral organization.

  • functional abilities such as self-care, handwriting, feeding, communication, and daily living skills.

  • Greater inclusion at home, school, and work, providing strengthened strength for learning, play, and socialization.

  • Facilitated neurological development by activating, integrating, organization organizing, and motor pathways in the central nervous system.

  • Improved trunk and head control, balance reactions, and postural stability through vestibular and proprioceptive input.

  • Decreased need for future therapy - Studies show that Naadi yoga results in long-lasting improvements that continue to benefit individuals in their daily activities even after therapy has ended.

Practices followed in Naadi Yoga Therapy:

Each Naadi yoga session follows these basic procedures:

  • Preparation: The Naadi Yoga Team assists patients in completing necessary documentation and guides parents through the form-filling process. They also set up a secure treatment area tailored to the patient's session plan and individual needs.

  • Assessment: Dr. Bhatt conducts a comprehensive evaluation, assessing the patient's current functioning through observations, tests, caregiver interviews, activity trials, baseline establishment, and formulation of a treatment plan.

  • Warm-up: To familiarize the patient with the session and enhance circulation, a series of activities, including range-of-motion exercises, respiratory exercises, and awakening techniques, are performed.

  • Activation Techniques: Specific therapeutic handling methods are employed to stimulate adaptive responses in the patient through proprioceptive, tactile, and vestibular stimulation.

  • Goal-Oriented Activities: Meaningful and relevant activities are chosen to target specific skills while actively engaging the patient. These activities are adjusted, equipped, and processed as needed to meet individual objectives.

After each session, Dr. Bhatt reviews the progress with patients and perform relaxation exercises to promote calmness. Additionally, they offer caregivers a set of home-based activities to sustain the progress achieved between scheduled appointments. Detailed documentation is kept for each patient, including performance, skill development, progress, and plans for future sessions. This organized approach ensures that patients receive individualized care and involves families in the treatment process.

Case Studies:

Here are examples of the effectiveness of Naadi yoga:

  • 5 -year-old with cerebral palsy
    Chief complaints: Low muscle tone, difficulty in sitting and walking, sensory overload, and tantrums.

       After 6 months: Improved core strength and balance. Enabled unassisted walking. A calmer nervous system

       with reduced meltdowns

  • 3 months -year-old with brain injury
    Chief complaints: emotional disengagement, no motor function, more than 10 seizures in a day, constipation, and constantly crying all the time.

       After 1 year: Developed focused attention, recognized his parents, started gripping, started rolling over, more         hunger, seizures stopped, able to stand and started walking,  . Developed self-and social awareness and self-           control. Better able to cope with symptoms.

  • 3-year-old with autism spectrum disorder

       Chief complaints: Sensory-seeking behaviors, echolalia, stimming, and a weak digestive system.
