I am more of a sports chiropractor with soft tissue techniques and I found that my knowledge in pediatrics was very low. In Quebec, the pediatric part if very basic and we do not see the cranial techniques.
This is a whole new world of cranial observation for me. It's all new. I was observing asymmetry, but I wasn't able to treat. This course puts words to the observation. Before this course I was never able to evaluate the palate and this course confirmed the importance of the vagus nerve.
I am more thrilled to see babies in my practice and I don't refer to them out anymore. I am more confident to take responsibility for plagiocephaly.
This summer, I had a 6 month old with plagiocephaly and infant torticollis, He wasn't able to rotate his head completely and was able to turn from back to belly on one side. It was an osteopath that referred me to this patient. After 2-3 treatments, he was able to do full head rotation and back to belly to back on both sides. He loved chiropractic treatment with all smiles the whole treatment.
I had taken Dr Rosen's ICPA class many years ago and got to a point in practice that I needed more knowledge in cranial work. Dr Rosen is the guy for the job.
There is so much information, take one or two parts to start and get good at those then build on that. Specificity is everything, take the time to do a full evaluation. You are what your patients need. You are learning this information to better help and serve.
I have more confidence in my exam and cranial adjusting. I can see and feel what is happening with more specificity now, thus giving my patients better care.
After the cranial class, I used some of the sphenoid work on a toddler that I had been stumped on with improvements. Now he sleeps great and the parents are super excited.
I am so blessed to have the opportunity to learn under Marty and Nancy. The breathe of knowledge that they share in order for others to better serve their patients is a blessing to the chiropractic profession.
I took this program to expand and enhance my skills relevant to the increasing pediatric population in my office. My takeaways are that you can never have enough knowledge or training, that learning from Dr Marty is a must for any provider caring for infants and children and that incorporating technique a little over time does not have to be intimidating.
I have an increased awareness of cranial distortions already walking into my office and it is easier to assess and correct cranial distortions.
Recently, a newborn came in with skull/cranial distortions. Occiput was bulging. After incorporating techniques from this class, there was significant changes in the occiput. Over a few weeks of treatment, skull measurements changed within normal ranges.
Drs Rosens are so welcoming and truly care about their students. The success of their program is apparent and the service they providence is much needed in the chiropractic world!
A driving factor on taking this course was one of my mentors, Courtney/ Seeing the way she implements this material in practice and the knowledge results she gets with pediatric patients. For those interested in this course, be a sponge, just sit and listen. Then get hands on in the breakout. Trying to write everything will distract you from all the gold of information. Be open to shifting the way you see the human body/nervous system. Be prepared to WANT to take thie series multiple times.
This program has revolutionized the way I see the pediatric nervous system and the way I evaluate/correct subluxation.
I had a 6 month old patient come into the practice with a neurologic tic of dropping and swinging his head. I applied the CSF/SOR balancing techniques I learned in this series and after 7 days the tic stopped. She is now 2 years old and it hasn't returned.
Thank you so much for teaching this wealth of knowledge.
I decided to take this course to broaden my skill set and knowledge in pediatric patients. I wanted something that was comprehensive.
Taking this series has allowed me to offer and use different techniques in my practice. I love that the program is hands on, steady pace and full of important information which you can relate to many patient cases. Dr Marty and Dr Nancy's willingness to help and teach is remarkable.
This program has impacted my practice by giving me a larger "tool box" to pull from when examining and treating patients. I love being able to offer treatments which will impact their lives forever.
I have applied these techniques in various situations both in practice and with my own children at home. I have had a few patients who have had increased dural tension and are unable to relax. After doing these techniques, they were able to relax and were less colic.
At home, my son (9 years old), had a terrible bike accident and hit his head on a telephone pole. He has had dull pain in his head since then. He did suffer a concussion at the time of the accident (3 years ago) After one of the programs, I examined him and worked on him. He had extension of the occiput and some frontal bone issues. Since working on him, had has had less overall pain and his energy has improved drastically.
I have enjoyed this program tremendously. The environment is very low stress and friendly. The hands on component is what I have enjoyed most. Learning from like minded doctors has been very enjoyable.
I took this program to learn about treating pediatrics and to have a better understanding of SOT/cranial techniques.
This is a very comprehensive program that covers everything from techniques to conditions and using techniques for different conditions. The material learned helps a lot in everyday practice/cases and the notes are also very helpful because you have them to refer back to. You learn how and when to apply/use techniques learned in the course when you come across certain patients. Currently in my first year of practice as an SOT doctor, this program has helped a lot when treating cases I didn't know how to start or resolve. This course has helped a lot with treatment of conditions in children (and adult) that I had a hard time figuring out what to do. It's taught me a lot of useful techniques that I've either forgotten and/or need a refresher on.
Currently I have quite a lot of kids coming from a pediatric dentists that have class II or class III that are severe. They've all been able to start coming out of their class II or III and j ust need a bit of bite fixing because of their growth of the maxilla or mandible.
There was one kid that was a severe class II and it didn't matter what the dentist did, either using elastics or expander, he would not go forward in the upper palate and his mandible was also stuck. After working with him for 8 visits, he had almost no anterior head carriage. he finally started expanding forward. Afterwards, because he was 12 years old, they put in an expander in for two weeks to help and he had so much expansion in two weeks that they didn't need to keep it in any longer. He also stopped tripping over himself in soccer practice and can run without hip pain.
I wanted to gain further understanding on treating pediatrics, especially with evaluation and adjusting protocols. Pediatrics was an area I was interested in growing in to be able to provide this service that was lacking in my community.
I think this course is full of information, so much so, that it would be beneficial to take this course multiple times to master the material. Great program to help gain confidence in communicating with the public that chiropractors should be the primary healthcare providers for any child with a neurological deficit. There is a good combination of theory and practical application with a lot of hands on during the course of the seminar.
Taking this program has increased the amount of tools available when treating pediatric cases. I am finding that results are happening much faster with the new tools that I have been able to slowly implement into our practice. I have also used a lot of the general information learned in the seminar in spinal workshops that we offer to our patient to help increase their knowledge.
Currently I am working on a severe plagiocephaly case in an infant who has a twin brother with normal cranial alignment. Progress has been made in the severity of the deformity. Mother has noticed significant improvement in the shape of the cranium and also in the head carriage positioning.
Great course and thank you!
I took this program to deepen my knowledge in cranial adjusting, increase my tool box for babies and children and learn more SOT protocols.
Three takeaways I would like to share about this program, are an in depth information of all common pediatric issues and adjustment protocols for treatment and more in depth cranial knowledge, learning the sphenoid and all its motions and how to properly adjust it and confidence in helping children and babies resolve their primary subluxations.
This program has impacted me as a provider by making me more confident in correcting subluxations and speaking to parents. It has impacted my practice by increasing the number of babies being served and getting relief from their issues.
Learning proper palate and intra-oral evaluations from this class and textbook, have increased helping more babies born in the birth community I serve with latching and TOTS. I had a case of treating a mom. The midwife went and clipped the tongue tie at day two of life.
Since I had established care with mom, I came to check her son. He had uneven palate and a sphenoid in extreme torsion. I was able to use SOR and help release his sphenomaxillary and sphenobasilar joints. Also applying fruit jars all helped with increasing his latch on one side. Mom also reported less pain and spit up. Continued care of him eventually had him functioning and cleare of his sphenobasilar restrictions.
I have enjoyed taking this course spread out and congruently with the 10 month online course. It is really putting the puzzle together. So thank you for what you guys are doing for the profession and grateful to study with you.
I'm very passionate about helping infants/kids and wanted to learn about cranial adjusting because I had heard about how beneficial it was but had never taken any courses.
I would recommend looking at the notes ahead of time. There's a lot of information and its helpful to have seen the material prior. Ask questions and get clarity, otherwise you get lost. This is especially with the cranials, Don't try to do it all in the beginning. It can be overwhelming and taking it one piece at a time helps make it more manageable.
I adjusted a sphenoid of a practice member and she reported at her next appointment that her headaches, that she'd been having "forever" improved significantly.
I really enjoyed this series and am planning on taking it again in the future.
I decided to take this program again to improve clinical skills and serve the members of my practice. I have a better understanding of the dural meningeal system and improved competency in my pediatric cranial adjusting. I am better able to care for children, especially involved cranial cases. With a child with plagiocephaly and developmental delays, I was able to completely assess, plan and adjust.
Great course, I will take it again and again and again.
I took this program as a student because I was looking for a different perspective in treating babies.
This program has much value for students and doctors. You get to learn many applicable techniques to use to access patients. You get greatly expanded knowledge that you don't get in school. This has reshaped what chiropractic could be and how important our work is for the development and health of children and adults.
During my clinic, the way of approaching occiput analysis and assessment has greatly increased my success rate. Overall this has helped my understanding and application of SOT.
Thank you for allowing me to shadow and see how you treat people and animals. I still have a long way to go and I am grateful of all the work you do to spread SOT. I would not know the stuff I do now, if it was not for your teaching
I decided to take this course because my own son had an amazing experience with cranial work and I've always been intrigued by it. Dr Rosen is known to be the best to learn from!
My three takeaways are that the nervous system also lives above C1, that cranial work is great for everyone, but especially the touch cases and that having a tool belt of objective neurological indicators is one of the most valuable investments in time and money you can make.
The outcomes that have been witnessed have been amazing. I am on a team of other chiros, but I am the only one that practices like this and the difference is notable. Having a better understanding of the neurospinal cranial system has helped me to better understand subluxation as a whole.
I have had a 3 year old non-verbal autistic girl who speaks after cranial work. The has actually happened twice in the last 6 months with two different little girls. Both had previous OT/PT intervention to no avail. I had a little being with severe CW sphenobasilar strain and was checked by the state for disability (to qualify for services). It took 3 months to get the appointment and in that time we were able to make immense changes.
This training has provided me with guidance and certainty where other techniques and courses have left me feeling unsatisfied. I hope to continue my mastering of SOT based neuro-tonal work to help my office, to help spread the work of Major DeJarnette.
I decided to take this course because I have seen first hand the power of this work from watching Dr Marty profoundly help by boys (age 6 and 4). I wanted to learn this work more deeply and continue to become more proficient with it.
Marty is a master, you will learn a ton. Be ready to drink from a fire hose. You will need to retake his seminars and read his book a lot to get a grasp because there is so much to learn.
Nancy and Marty have been teaching for a long time and do a great job, I enjoy them very much and highly recommend their work.
Taking this program has inspired me to work hard and find time to study this work and get more proficient with it. I am spending more time evaluating and adjusting the cranium.
I use the sphenobasilar release a lot and feel an immediate change after doing so. I also use the fruit jar technique a lot and that helps a lot.
Krissy and I love and appreciate Nancy and Marty so much! Thank you for being our mentors and friends. We are so grateful to have you both in our lives.
I took this course because I have studied Dr Rosen's classes before and I knew he was the one to take my cranial knowledge to the next level for the best results in my practice.
My three takeaways are:
1. visual analysis to figure out the primary cranial lesion
2. vagal release
3. It helped my understand my SOT(tm) indicators and how to go about treatment.
My plagiocephaly results have gotten so much better since taking this series.
I had a 13 year patient working with a dentist for palate expansion. His teeth started to flare out toward the back. After evaluating and specifically working with the external temporal intraoral techniques, the cranium unlocked and he was able to progress through the dental work appropriately.
The pediatric certification program is a gold mine of quality information. The depth of the pediatric exam is such that, when done, there will be no doubt in your mind what needs to be done and why. Clinical certainty is such an important part of practice, and the information gained throughout the program has significantly uplevel my clinical certainty. In addition to an in-depth overall exam and analysis procedure that's taught, there are also several condition specific indicators that have also been impactful and helpful in practice. Daily in practice I'm able to apply the information gained through the certification to not only better serve my community, but also to feel good at the end of the day that we were able to offer our patients the finest of what's possible in chiropractic. Thank you Drs. Rosen and I look forward to continuing on this journey!
Thank you, truly, for offering the program. It has made a big difference.
If you see kids, (or don't see kids yet), been in pediatrics for 3 months or 30 years, taking Dr Martin Rosen's in-person seminars or seminar series is a no-brainer. The technical proficiency, clinical excellence and conviction to check, adjust and recheck kiddos is unlike anything we have in the profession today. If you're on the fence, just jump in. The future of our children depends on it.
Dr. Rosen's classes are gems! I have had the pleasure of taking a handful of his courses throughout the years but the pediatric certification really helped to pull all the material together. Each seminar gave me more confidence in my skills as a pediatric chiropractor. There is always more to learn but I now feel confident in thoroughly assessing and correcting the pediatric cranium. The knowledge Dr Rosen shares, from the analysis and adjustments to talking points for patient education, truly is invaluable. Investing your time in this series will not be something you regret! I'm so happy to be serving my patients at a higher level and am so grateful for Dr. Rosen's ability to share his work!
Dr. Marty and Nancy are truly a gift to our profession. The incredible amount of research and experience that you will learn in these seminars will equip you with confidence and resources to be able to treat the pediatric patient efficiently.
I've taken different courses from Marty, and each time you gain new information. This course has been pivotal in getting amazing results in my pediatric population in my practice. They are the real deal!
Thank you Dr. Rosen's for your continued contributions in our profession.
This was truly one of my favorite courses thus far in practice.
I can't recommend Dr. Rosen's Certified SOT Pediatric Practitioner course enough! I work exclusively with pediatric chiropractic patients and this series has absolutely helped me become more specific and confident - even after almost a decade in practice seeing infants and children. Understanding SOT Cranial adjusting has helped me elevate my examination and adjusting skills, especially with infants and the immense growth and change that takes place in the first few years of life. Drs. Marty and Nancy are an engaging and passionate team that make hands-on learning relatable and easy to implement. Their knowledge is invaluable.
If you care for infants and children, this seminar series is hands down the best for hands-on training. You will have the tools to bring your practice to the next level so that you can change lives and change the future.
What was a game-changer for you?
I've always felt confident in my ability to help my patients. Although, I couldn't help but feel that there were limitations beyond my grasp for best serving each child that visited my practice.
It wasn't until this past year that I finally could wrap my head (no pun intended) around what was missing: the cranium. Seriously, 80% of chiropractors won't even see pediatric patients. At a time when the brain and the immune system are crucial in development!
An an even smaller number are Certified in THIS sacro occipital cranial technique.
I can't even begin to express my gratitude and excitement to have learned from one of my original instructors 22 years ago.
Why such a game-changer? As much as we do to be low tox, there's no chemical solution to a structural problem and I've finally connected the dots between the two.
Who's coming along to find out what's beyond the information overload and get the real root cause?
Dr. Rosen's seminar was definitely one of the best ones I've been to to date. The amount of clarity you get and certainty you get in adjusting and assessing pediatrics is mind blowing. I have grown so much in my knowledge and ability to take awesome care of kiddos in such a short time that I will definitely be taking more classes with him soon. Keep learning and keep growing. And if you want to learn some amazing techniques and assessments. The pediatric SOT cert is the way to go.
Dr. Rosen is not only an amazing chiropractor but an amazing instructor. I have learned so much from taking classes with him and Dr. Nancy through Peak Potential Institute. Their Pediatric SOT Practitioner Certification program has really given me the education I needed to better serve my pediatric practice.
Taking Dr. Rosen's Pediatric SOT series is one of the better decisions I have ever made for my practice. I first met Dr. Rosen while in school when I first took his ICPA seminar. The integration and depth of information were unlike anything I had experienced in any seminar. His certification series took that experience to a new level. I feel more confident and certain than ever before in delivering the highest quality of chiropractic care to children, especially infants, in my practice. That certainty has translated into more commitment for children and entire families in my practice than ever before.
In over 11 years of practice, I have never learned as much from a seminar series as this one! Drs. Marty and Nancy are the pediatric experts in our profession. Just to sit with them for a few weekends is a real honor. This series is loaded with technique and science as well as the art of what we do and it will leave you wanting more, needing more! I plan to continue to study with them every chance I can.
When I first arrived in Boston for the weekend series I felt quite overwhelmed as a recent grad. However, Drs Watson and Rosen made me feel completely at ease as they helped me understand with one on one time throughout our hands-on experience portions of the course. This really helped me better understand the material and how I could better serve my patients. I was also much more at ease during the next two weekends and learned a great deal on how to help the babies in my area. I enjoyed the weekend series so much that I've signed up for several other courses since and will continue to learn from Dr. Rosen and Dr. Watson for years to come as I truly believe that the knowledge I'll gain with them will help me best serve my pediatric/perinatal patients!
I just completed Dr. Martin Rosen"s Certified SOT Pediatric Practitioner Program. As a seasoned Chiropractor in New York City with forty years of experience Dr. Rosen's Seminars...along with the CSPP are MUST TAKE seminars for everyone who holds a Chiropractic degree! The immaculately organized material along with Marty's enthusiastic presentation gives you the necessary tools to accurately and effectively treat your patients like never before...as young as a new born up to your elderly patients. As you learn the "indicators" as Marty presents them and then a protocol to address the problems you will surprise yourself as to the results you thought of achieving but haven't. Marty's work WILL enhance your practice as a practitioner and especially you as a person. The presence of Marty's wife Dr. Nancy Watson also adds an expertise and presence that enhances Marty's presentation of the material. Her extensive knowledge and up beat nature are also keys to the seminar's experience as a whole! I am grateful to them both! If you are "on the fence" about taking Dr. Rosen's seminars, then make the time and the investment...you will be extremely happy that you did!
As a chiropractor who loves specializing in pregnancy and pediatrics I knew that this would be a good fit for a continuing education class. What I didn't realize was the amount of information I would take away that would impact my entire practice.
Since taking these classes I have seen craniums balance, sleep and function improve greatly from all of our kids. We had parents who were considering neuro exams with doctors realize that it was no longer necessary after seeing the progress their kids were making and understanding the neurological exams I was performing.
I have also seen huge improvements in our adult population with sinuses, decreasing of blood pressure, patients who haven't slept through the night for years now sleeping through the night.
Marty & Nancy are an amazing team and create an ideal environment for learning. Every weekend I walked away with pertinent knowledge to integrate into specific chiropractic patient care that continuously improves outcomes.
If you're on the fence about committing to the seminar...commit! Our patients have been so amazed with my take aways and keep bringing in more family members for care.
I made the trip from Iowa 3 times and can’t wait to come back for more classes.
I can't begin to speak highly enough about the Certification Series! I had originally taken Dr. Rosen's class through the ICPA courses and that class is just a drop in the bucket in comparison to what is taught in the Certification series. The ICPA class was an introduction to Dr. Rosen's work, but even his stand alone 16-hour Pediatrics class is at least twice as much information as the ICPA class was.
The Certification Series blows both out of the water. It is where you truly begin to work in the world that Dr. Rosen has created in the evaluation and care of Pediatric Patients!
I have been out to Boston to attend Dr. Rosen's seminars multiple times, repeating classes and each time I learned something new, understood a bit better, and reviewed a portion that I had missed the previous times. I intend to continue to repeat courses over and over again to strengthen my understanding of the material even more! They are that good!
Having Dr. Nancy Watson and Dr. Erin Rosen assisting in the teaching is a God-send as well! This ensures that you are getting tons of hands-on guided closely by Master Doctors that live these techniques every day! Not one of my questions has ever went unanswered!
I promise you, taking the Certification course is worth every penny and more. But I do caution you: hold onto your hats and come ready to dive deep! Dr. Rosen never leaves you hoping for more information! You will tap out before he does!
When deciding on attending this series or not, I was unsure of what to expect. Would it align with prior cranial teachings? Is it worth the travel and expense? I have to say I have no regrets. The program was well thought out, well organized, with an abundance of knowledge to absorb. Everyone was so inviting and personable I felt like part of a family. I highly recommend Dr Rosen's teachings to anyone that wants to see peds.
Fantastic series of seminars! Drs. Martin Rosen, Erin Rosen and Nancy Watson are a wealth of knowledge, bringing years of experience to these classes. They teach you practical applications of pediatric adjusting techniques that you can go back to the office and use that week. The structure of these classes is taught in a way that you learn everything hands on and you can feel that they really care if you are "getting it". If you are looking to expand your knowledge of pediatrics/pediatric adjusting, I would definitely recommend taking this whole series.
The SOT Pediatric Certificate Series by the Drs. Rosen was amazing. I find myself using the information and techniques I learned every day at my clinic, to the benefit of my patients, their families, and my reputation.
I found the information accessible, well laid-out and really fascinating. The passion these doctors have for this topic blends well with their depth of knowledge. I appreciated having the notes in advance and how they put the information together in different ways for review at the end.
I would recommend this class to anyone who works with children. If you were lucky enough to take Dr. Martin Rosen's class through the ICPA over the last fifteen years, this builds on that foundation and takes it to the next level. Taking the series over three weekends really allowed the information to simmer and take root before we built on the next layer each time. I am grateful to Dr. Martin and Dr. Erin for this series and for their professional expertise.
Dr. Martin Rosen delivered the pediatric certification series in a clear, organized, and masterful presentation which raised my practice to a new level, giving me more ways to help my pediatric patients. Dr. Erin Rosen clarified, answered questions, and demonstrated with her own impressive expertise. Additionally, I even took home gems that I can apply to my adult patients.
I met Dr. Martin Rosen in 2017 in a seminar in Wisconsin. I learned a lot and it made me want to learn a lot more. In 2018, I took another seminar in London and my willingness to learn increased even more. When I saw the first certification started, I was sure that I'd do it completely, and, no doubts, it was the best decision I have ever made. The series is terrific. Dr. Martin Rosen is a great teacher and the Rosen family makes the practice extremely pleasant and easy to understand. I'm already using all I've learned in my training. I look forward to taking more and more seminars of this amazing family. Dr. Rosen's books and DVDs help me a lot and I'm confident to say that the learning with him changed my life.
Having taken the introductory course to Cranial Sacral work with Drs. Marty Rosen, Erin Rosen & Nancy Watson I was inspired to take the full certification series. Each weekend I was able to delve deeper into my understanding of Cranial palpation and adjusting, honing the skills necessary to bring back to my patients. In the introductory course I was overwhelmed with the vast amount of content while at the same time inspired with a new sense of purpose. Each seminar, I would get a little more comfortable with my ability to feel the slight movements available in the cranial sutures all while getting a better understanding of the vital role it all plays in our patients overall health and well being. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is thinking about adding this work to their practice. I love the family dynamic the three of these amazing practitioners brings to the seminar and I am honored to have learned from their experience. They are my people.
Amazing series of seminars! As a new graduate Drs. Martin Rosen, Erin Rosen and Nancy Watson are a wealth of knowledge and an incredible resource! This series builds on what I had learned in Dr Rosen’s ICPA class but compared to this series that is a drop in the bucket. This series brought a new level of confidence and competence to how I approach pediatric patients. I use the skills and knowledge from this series on a daily basis! Considering the years of experience behind these classes the information is accessible and integrated wonderfully with hands on learning. It is fanatic to leave a seminar where you can implement what you learned on Monday and the instructors truly cared if you understood the material. I can’t recommend this series highly enough!
This is an excellent seminar series. The pediatric evaluation and the cranial work that is laid out in this certification series should be considered the gold standard. Each seminar in the series builds off what was learned in the previous one. Having now completed the series, I am confident in my skills and proficiency in pediatric care and pediatric cranial work. Drs. Marty, Nancy, and Erin are great teachers and truly just want the material covered in the certification series to be carried on to the population through all of the doctors who have gone through the courses.
If you have the desire to work with pediatrics in your chiropractic practice, taking this series is an absolute must! Dr. Rosen is an excellent teacher, in both lecturing and delivering an amazing hands-on educational experience. The series content is broken up in just the right amount of information so that you can absorb, practice, and implement what you learned very easily that next day in your office. Since having taken this course, my pediatric practice has boomed with referrals due to the success stories I have achieved from utilizing the techniques taught. I can't recommend this series enough - you will not be disappointed!
Dr. Rosen is an amazing Pediatric Chiropractic instructor and teacher. I have taken most all of his seminars. I am now a Certified Pediatric SOT Chiropractor. He is extremely knowledgeable and I highly recommend his classes.
