Research, theories and philosophy are undoubtedly critical to validate the Chiropractic and therapeutic professions. However... without precise adjusting skills, our words are of little use.
If we caregivers want to actually apply our skills to help parents and children to breastfeed, we must gain the confidence of the medical/birth professionals to make referrals. A huge barrier to that confidence; however, is that there simply is not a continuity of care among all Chiropractors and Bodyworkers. WHO do they confidently refer these babies to? Not all therapists are trained to deliver the very specific care that these babies require. That's an unfortunate fact.
This Technique course is designed to be a comprehensive introduction to specific cranial adjusting. You will walk away with a knowledge of functional movement, how to identify pathological presentations, AND how to very specifically address them. This is not meant to be all encompassing of cranial/sacral therapy or Chiropractic technique. It is meant to teach a concept... to give you a global understanding of HOW the joints and soft tissues react in relation to each other and HOW dysfunction occurs. Only once you have gained that understanding can you build on your skills to correct the specific issue.
Our goal is to give you a working knowledge to use immediately in your practice to support breastfeeding, to build relationships with other birth professionals, and to actually make a meaningful improvement in the life of the struggling baby and parent.
OK... Here we go!
