Praise for Our 10-month SOT Pediatric Certificate Program

Stephanie Leindecker, D.C.

I have really enjoyed this program. I love to continue learning and I love the ability to go back and re-watch the videos, especially when a new case comes in. There is so much information and it has certainly improved my abilities and confidence in helping all of my patients! Thank you! Although I love in person seminars, it is not always possible to make it, so having this option has been wonderful.

Dr. Frances Bigas

It was awesome. A lot of info and should integrate the hands on with the course. It was very helpful to have the videos to go back and review techniques.

Dr. Kathy Cantwell

I am so very thankful for Marty and Nancy for bringing us this class. I will be studying my notes for the rest of my career and beyond! I have learned so much and have so much more confidence in my daily treatments. Since I already had my cranial certification through SOT, I was grateful to have this class on line rather than in person so I could stop and back up the videos to re-watch them. Also, I have yet to see Marty take a breath while he is teaching - lol. Having his pediatric textbook has also been a wonderful adjunct when I need a quick reference. My patients love his newest book as I have several copies laying around the office for all to enjoy. Having just taught my first class last year, I have a greater appreciation for what goes into making slides and notes. Marty, I cannot thank you enough for your love and dedication to our profession and for all of your training to help us to help the little human beings that will be the future of our planet! You rock!

Dr. Wendy Coburn

I just want to thank you for creating this online program for so many reasons! To help me grow as a practitioner to help more kiddos and families, (helping adults too), helping me stay engaged and learning, (a passion to always g row and learn), during this crazy season of no gatherings and travel. This course has been inspiring and I wish I could imprint all the teachings in my brain and re-watch the videos when I need insight. I know asking questions too will help! This course has also shown me to share more with parents about their child’s physiology and not avoid details. Parents are more engaged and interested in hearing about the dural meningeal, CSF, sphenobasilar respiratory connection, the cranial sacral, and the neural system and how it pertains to findings and corrections versus speaking about subluxation and its impact on function and healing. Like attracts like. I’m analytical, so why would my patients not want to know the details. Thank you for showing us how to communicate - the doctor shares were so important And I apologize I was not in person for almost all of them. I am grateful they are recorded to go back and learn more! I love the format of watching, reading and engaging as it solidifies concepts and someday soon hope to connect in person! Thank you Dr. Martin Rosen and Dr. Nancy Watson

Praise for Introduction to Cranial Evaluation and Adjusting Protocols

Dr. Susan F. Waletkus, DCTrue life Chiropractic

I highly recommend taking Introduction to Chiropractic Adjusting (CCA). When I saw the opportunity to have a class online with the Drs. Rosen and Watson, I could hardly wait for it to begin. I have always been interested in cranial work and who better to learn from then ‘The Masters’. I have attended live seminars, but I am one who needs repetition and extra time to grasp concepts, so the format of an online class suited my learning style. On Monday, a concept was addressed in a short video that appeared in our email. Thursday, we received a second email which was a ‘Call to Action’. This helped to organize the concepts presented on Monday. I must admit, occasionally Dr. Rosen talks a little faster than I can comprehend so I could slow the presentation to 75%, and watch several times. There were also several doctors call/zoom meetings to have questions answered and brainstorm with colleagues. Upon completion of the course, I am now a member of the Facebook group for questions, interesting cases and continued learning. Thank you Marty and Nancy.

Kathy Cantwell, D.C.

This is an amazing program. I love the fact that it is virtual so I can go back and re-watch and take better notes than I would otherwise be able. Dr. Rosen is such a gift to our profession and I am a better doctor for taking his program!

Robert R. LaRusso, D.C.

I just completed your online cranial course. Even at this stage of my career I have a strong desire to learn. Ever since my undergraduate work and learning of a sphenoid bone has intrigued me to no end! The intricacies of how and what Marty teaches appear to “light” me up inside! Since taking Drs. Rosen and Watson's courses all my practices have grown beyond beyond! I do not advertise, nor do have any signs outside all four of the facilities that indicate that I work here! I still find that I have a strong desire to be more and do more and study more…until God wants me to stop! I LOVE Marty’s tutorials that are sent to us during the courses…that are great and informative! I do get behind a bit because I do work a lot…even at this stage of my career! But instead of binge watching TV, I binge watch Marty’s tutorials! I so appreciate you Marty and of course you Nancy as well…and ALL that you offer our profession. Thank you from my heart.

Sarah E. Rowley, D.C.

I enjoyed relearning about the importance of CSF fluid and how it moves. It is helpful to explain to practice members why having cranial work done is important to their overall health. I have noticed more and more of the practice members having cranial problems and how profound the work can be in their overall health and there is always something you can learn and be better at. It was a nice easy pace to keep up with each week and even if you fell behind, you could easily catch up. That was great for someone that does not have much extra time but wants to learn. The videos were very helpful for me to learn since I am a visual person. It is important to have someone help so you can practice on them otherwise it is harder to apply the information and techniques. Overall, the course was great and I would take another in the future.

Francine Lajoie, D.C.

It is always a pleasure to take a class with Dr. Rosen. Each time, I learn more and feel more confident in my skills in Pediatrics and Cranial Adjusting. This introduction to Chiropractic Cranial Adjusting is well organised and easy to follow with plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

Ray Bunch. D.C.

I have completed the Chiropractic Cranial Course with Drs. Rosen and Watson. It is clear to me that they really want to teach this technique well and have their students learn it well, use it, and help many others. If you have never done cranial work before, you will learn why it can be so powerful and also learn a good many cranial adjustments that you can use in your practice without having to alter your typical patient visit too much!

Dr. Sharon Dongarra

Recently I had the pleasure of taking Peak Potential Institutes online Introduction to Cranial Adjusting class. I had previous experience learning from Drs. Rosen & Watson through the ICPA. There was so much knowledge and experience to be shared it was a little overwhelming. I was a student back then and those weekend seminars felt a lot like drinking water from a fire hose in addition to all the information my brain was already processing. I definitely learned the value of cranial adjusting but I wasn’t able to integrate the technique into my work in clinic and upon graduating I joined an established practice that didn’t use cranial adjusting in their systems. Fast forward to private practice, I began to notice that while I often got great results with my practice members sometimes I’d hit a wall. Either people didn’t get better or they couldn’t hold their adjustment. Cranial adjusting would always come up for me and I was feeling pretty frustrated at the need to refer these cases to a local CST for resolution. So, I began to seriously revisit the idea of learning this powerful work when I saw this course. To be honest, I was a little unsure about how effective taking a technique class online would be. I’m so glad I set those concerns aside though because let me tell you; unlike those weekend seminars I had a front row seat. The videos were at once informative but short and to the point making them easy to assimilate. They were not rushed and were organized in a very effective and easy to understand manner. I replayed many of them which you can’t do live and I even had the option to slow the speed of the video if I needed extra time to absorb what was being said. The videos were supplemented with transcripts, excellent notes, homework to help integrate the skills, multiple opportunities to connect via zoom and ask questions and an active Facebook community from which I learned a lot by others questions. At the end of this course I am equipped with several techniques and parameters for when to use them that have already improved my clinical outcomes. If you are considering taking this course I cannot recommend it highly enough. It’s well worth the investment in yourself and your practice members. I’m looking forward to diving deeper into the topic with further modules as time goes on.

I really like the online format. It has the flexibility of working into my schedule instead of the other way around like most seminars. It also allows me to go at my own pace and take detailed notes which I have referred back to several times in the office.

Praise for Chiropractic Care of the Pregnant Patient

Dr. April Kosinski

Taking this course will give you a better understanding of SOT and how it applies to prenatal and even postnatal patients.

Dr.Claire Gordon

I would highly recommend this course to others. The content is extensive and well taught. All of the aspects taught on the course are applicable to daily Clinical practice.

Dr. Stephanie Rittenour

This course is a phenomenal source of information to help your pregnant patients. It is hands on experience coupled with other information that can help everyone have the healthiest and most comfortable pregnancy. I would recommend it!! Great information, clinical pearls and things that can immediately be implemented into practice.

Dr. Claire Gordon

Drs Martin and Nancy Rosen are amongst the most dedicated Chiropractors alive today. Their drive to share their experience and knowledge is exceptional. They don't hold back with regard to what they teach and go out of their way to support their students and fellow Chiropractors. They cover a very wide range of topics within the parameters of the course content and teach with real thought for their learners. I can't imagine anyone regretting doing this course - that includes those who have recently graduated and those who are as long in the tooth as I am - I have been a Chiropractor over 25 years! I hope that you enjoy the courses as much as I have.

Julie Uren, D.C.

Chiropractic care for the pregnant patient is by far the best chiropractic technique course on pregnancy I have done. The modules were clear and the video demonstrations made the course easy to follow. The Q&A sessions were fabulous for clarifying and reviewing the modules. Martin and Nancy were so well prepared and available for any questions. I would definitely recommend this course.

Praise for SOT® - The Three Categories

Dr. Nick Novakoski

This was my first experience with SOT. I started implementing bits and pieces into my practice and my patients started seeing better and better results. I received a voicemail from a lifelong chiropractic patient after running her through the system for the first time. She told me that was the BEST she had ever felt after an adjustment. By the end of the course, I had completely changed my entire exam and adjusted protocols to fit the 3 category system. Drs. Rosen and Watson do a wonderful job of explaining and simplifying complex biomechanics and neurology. If you are looking to standardize your analysis and adjusting protocols, while still maintaining a high level of individualized care, this class is for you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
