It helps to improve neurological function so that areas of the brain are more strongly connected. It uses physical movements and provides immediate improvement in the performance of the brain.
Our brain is divided into 2 parts. Right brain and left brain. In normal routine work, we use only one part of our body. Either left hand or right hand. The right hand is connected with the left brain and the left hand is connected with the right brain.
So by continuous using one hand, we strengthen the one part of brain while the other part of the brain remains idle. So day by day one part becomes stronger and stronger and the other part become weak. Our brain gets imbalanced.
By doing Brain gym exercises we are trying to balance both the parts again. Here we use both parts of the body simultaneously.
