Quantum Reflex Integration
The Quantum Reflex Integration program integrates reflexes using the QRI Harmonic laser and accu-reflex points. Reflexes are the building blocks of development that form in utero and in early infancy. They are essential for the maturation of cognition, movement, and behavior. For example, the fear paralysis reflex protects the fetus, causing a freezing of movement when mother is in “Fight or Flight” mode. It thus prevents the fetus from making demands on the mother, and also blocks passage through the placenta of damaging hormones such as cortisol. An active fear paralysis reflex is often found in children with autism and OCD. This reflex prevents the person from “choosing” their response. They react first and often cannot think logically about their decisions.
Many factors can cause a reflex to be retained, including genetics; stress during pregnancy and delivery (e.g., C-section); environmental toxins; lack of movement; diet; aging; and brain injuries. Reflexes integrate in stages, have a time line, and affect the infant’s progress on all levels.
The low level laser used with the QRI protocols has remarkable photochemical effects at the cellular level. The laser’s photons penetrate to several levels of tissue, depending on type of laser diode, and can rejuvenate skin, fascia, bone, cartilage, and nerve tissue. Photons are absorbed by both the mitochondria inside the cell and the cell membrane. Stimulation of mitochondria increases production of ATP, which governs 80 – 90 percent of cellular activity, including replication. Effects also include decreased inflammation of tissue and improved circulation. In the case of nerve tissue, the laser helps to restore the myelin sheath, which increases the speed and efficiency of impulse transmission.
Cody, a 14-year-old boy from North Carolina with spastic cerebral palsy, experienced significant improvement in movement, cognition, and behavior with QRI™. For most of his life, one hand was tightly constricted into a fist, and he couldn’t straighten the arm. He was bent over at the waist, unable to stand or to sit straight, and he suffered nocturnal back spasms. He could not straighten his legs, and his toes were clenched. Cody is diagnosed with Oppositional Defiance Disorder, ADHD, autism, and OCD, and he is visually impaired.
After one QRI™ session, he could release the clenched hand and straighten his arm. Cody’s parents had exhausted traditional therapies without seeing improvement in his arm’s spasticity. After additional sessions, he was able to sit up straight in his wheelchair and lift himself up onto a couch. He can stand up (with support) and is making good progress toward walking. His back spasms have almost disappeared, his feet can lie flat with less spasticity, and he can straighten his legs. He is “popping wheelies” in his wheelchair.
Cody’s behavior and cognition have significantly improved, including a virtual end to temper tantrums. His hand flapping has almost vanished after using the Quantum Reflex Integration, QRI™ protocol for autism. On a speech assessment, his score improved from 20/50 to 47/50. He is able to focus better and really enjoys therapy. He noticed a picture that had been hanging in his home for years and asked, “Who is in the picture?” When his mother asked him why, he said, “Now I can see the faces, even the nose and mouth.” Friends and family comment on his continual progress.
More than 5,000 clinical studies involving laser therapy for physical conditions have been published, including over 200 double-blind studies. Prior clinical studies concerning cerebral palsy therapy demonstrated a subsiding of symptoms, particularly of spasticity (note references at the end of the linked article).

Studies have also demonstrated improvement for brain injuries, nervous system rejuvenation, osteoarthritis, tendinitis, back and neck pain, acne and other skin conditions, cosmetic rejuvenation, diabetic foot ulcer and venous ulcer wounds, dental disease, and numerous other conditions. Low level laser therapy has been shown to be free of side effects. Practitioners using QRI™ include physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, pain relief therapists, and laser therapists.
Quantum Reflex Integration, QRI is a program of reflex integration in which the practitioner targets a Harmonic sound and low level laser upon specific acu-points and reflex patterns. Reflex assessments are not necessary as reflexes are done in a developmentally sequential order for best results. The integration process, presented in the home program, is easy to follow; quick results are often seen. Using reflex integration, QRI has been successful in addressing many cognitive, behavioral, and physical challenges, including learning disabilities, autism, strokes, cerebral palsy, and Parkinson’s disease, and many more.
Quantum Reflex Integration
The QRI™ protocols are presented in a home program that parents find easy to follow; children enjoy the program and often request laser time. Therapists and parents in over 30 countries are seeing significant results using the QRI program. They also benefit by using the program for themselves as well.
Quantum Reflex Integration (QRI) combines the powerful effects of cold laser, sound, and reflex integration techniques to revive the nervous system for quick, visible results. These techniques re-pattern both primitive and lifelong reflexes for the development of efficient neurological processing.
Original reflex patterns may not integrate during the normal developmental stage and then interfere with many aspects of learning, physical movement, development, and behavior. Integrating a reflex increases the myelin sheath or connects nerve nets to allow rapid and efficient transmission of impulses along nerve cells.
Individuals with conditions such as autism, ADD/ADHD, brain injuries, cerebral palsy, dementia, learning disabilities, Parkinson’s disease, strokes, and pain are finding a reduction of symptoms with QRI™. Practitioners report that use of the protocols for reflexes often relieve and heal specific areas of pain faster. Although QRI works for individuals with specific disabilities, they also allow individuals to reach their potential by strengthening neurological connections.
Reflexes may not be integrated due to:
Lack of movement
Poor diet: sugar, GMOs, and gluten
Reflex re-patterning benefits clients of all ages and concerns. Reflexes affect us both physically and psychologically. Some areas that are influenced include:
Concentration & Focus
Reflexes affect everything we do from movement to cognition. Find out today how reflex integration can improve the quality of life for you and your family.
