Introduction to Cranial Evaluation &
“I took this course in hopes to expand my pediatric knowledge and refine my skill set. I felt this course provided exactly that. Drs. Martin and Nancy are not only brilliant in the field, but their willingness to help and desire for you to learn is immense. It makes the course so much better. The material has a significant impact on your practice immediately. It allowed me to help so many more kids in the office in ways I wasn’t able to before. The material is heavy, but it’s presented in a digestible way as well done through Q & As that help guide you.
Personally, I feel more confident as a doctor and have provided my kids with better care.
Professionally, I feel I provide my patients and community a better facility with more tools at my disposal. Almost immediately after completing the course, my daughter suffered what appeared to be a concussion. Using specific cranial adjusting methods from this course, I was able to confidently help her in ways I wouldn’t have before.
The program and the material should be a part of the school curriculum. It’s so impactful and addresses subluxation and tension in ways I couldn’t without it. Both Doctors are incredibly bright but also very kind and helpful.”
Dr. Michael Smallwood
“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.”

“After 37 years in practice, I took the Introduction to Chiropractic Cranial Adjusting course this past winter. Having wanted to learn about cranial adjusting for a while, I turned to the experts and was glad that I did. This is a very thorough introduction, which gave me the knowledge, understanding and tools to be able to begin to implement what I learned from the course into my practice. I liked the online format as I could get to the materials at my convenience and also review the notes and watch (and rewatch) the videos until I understood what was being taught. My questions were all answered quickly and completely in the Facebook group.
For those familiar with Cranial adjusting, I would imagine this is a good review and will help with the nuances of the technique. For those, like me, who are novices, it’s a great way to start.”
Dr. Kim Stetzel
“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.”

“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.”
“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.”
Dr. Sharon Dongarra
“I was really interested in cranial work and it is not something I had learned in school, so I signed up! I learned a lot. My favorite part was the easy online accessibility that I could fit into my schedule and the relevant homework. The most surprising takeaway was the amount of movement and direction of movement of the cranial bones during inhalation and exhalation. This course is completely worth it. Dr. Rosen and Dr. Watson make it so easy to understand and immediately applicable to your practice. I loved every minute of this class and I believe it has helped me not only help build a healthy foundation for younger patients, but also provided me tools to help the non-pediatric patients.”
“I really enjoyed this introduction course in cranial adjustments.
I decided to take this course because I find it interesting to have many tools in our bag to offer the best for our patients, and the cranial work is important to consider. And also we see a lot of babies in our practice, so I needed some basics to increase my knowledge.
With this program, we can take the time to view and review the videos when we want. To progress at our own rhythm. The calls were really interesting and we could ask as many questions as we wanted.
In my practice, I try now to be more aware of the dural system, of the meningeal system, how they can impact the results of my adjustments.
I used some technique for patients with TMJ problems or with sinuses issues, or some headaches problems and it helped me to have faster results.
Dr. Agathe Vinault
“My wife and I had our first child and wanted to provide comprehensive chiropractic care for her that included cranial adjustments. We were able to care for our child in ways that we weren’t otherwise able to. My favorite aspect of the course was learning not only generalized cranial adjustments, but adjustments that are specific for certain conditions as well.
My biggest takeaway was the many ways a person can respond to a cranial adjustment and the cranial antidote for when they are not accepting the adjustments. I plan to utilize the CRI technique and RTRT to help all practice members have more balance in the dural meningeal system, better CSF flow and better reception to adjustments. I will also utilize the skull molding for pediatric practice members and evaluate for protrusions on newborns/infants when they first come in.
I would recommend this course to others. It is an excellent refresher on anatomy and physiology, explains when and why to perform cranial corrections and is highly specific in the art of performing them! This course has given me the confidence and knowledge that I need in cranial adjustments. The cranium and dural meningeal system are so intimately related to the nervous system and how it functions. I feel as though I am better equipped for individuals in a more comprehensive way!”

“Take this Intro to Cranial Course before the Cranial Immersion or the Pediatric Class. If I had taken this first, it would’ve made the pediatric course easier since some of the concepts were repeated in both courses. Practice, practice, practice. The more patients I worked with, the easier these techniques became and the more sensitive my fingers were to the CSF pulses. Trust the technique. Even when I wasn’t sure if I did something right, I would hear great feedback from patients and see changes even if I was using a new technique that I wasn’t 100% comfortable with yet. I finish each adjustment now with some cranial balancing and patients LOVE it. I know I am offering something no other DC in the area can do. I had a patient with swollen glands on her left side and severe ear pain and congestion come to me, and by working on her with these techniques, she had instant relief of her symptoms and her lymph nodes were back to normal by the next day.”
Angela Taylor, DC
“I took this course, I saw the need in the children. I started working in a family practice and there were little ones coming in with helmets. Their heads cake out oddly shaped anyway! So I thought there was something I could do about this. What I have found is that it is wonderful for funky shaped heads AND it has been a monumental shift in my effect with patients of all ages and head shapes! Everyone benefits from this: from adjustments moving more easily, to infant craniums rounding out, to speech development in non-verbal and limited communication autistic children. to adults maladaptation and experiencing panic. (with a THREE MONTH intro class) It’s truly been a climatic key in the path of my practicing. The most surprising takeaway is the profound effects of such little input. I would recommend this course because you are very thorough teachers and clearly care very much about the work you do. This is an astounding course that has immensely affected the people I serve. Thank you very much for sharing your gifts!”
Dr. Emily R. Whisman
“I wanted to refresh my cranial skills. I have taken a course with Dr Rosen in the ICPA. I loved learning the technique and the different conditions to use the techniques on. It was a great course; the homework forced me to re-listen. I wish that I had more hands-on practice while watching the course. I love the Eustachian Tube Cranial adjustment as allergy season has come into practice already. I would recommend this course because it is a great way to refresh your skills, understand the why behind the cranial adjusting and have more confidence cranial adjusting in practice. Refresh, learn and gain more confidence with new cranial adjusting skills. The skills you learn are ones that you can start using in practice right away.”
Dr. Madison Gilbert
“I took this course as I wanted to further my skills in cranial adjusting so I can better serve my patients, particularly my pediatric patients. I have taken Dr Rosen’s in person seminars before, and although those are very helpful as well, there is so much information and being online you are able to pause and go back and go at your own pace. I have already started using these techniques in my practice and they have been really impactful. Specifically in the babies that I take care of that I have tried everything else and nothing has worked. A 4 month old came to my office and her mom described her as a “mad baby”. She cried constantly and the only time she stopped was when she was feeding. The mom was drained and had gone to every specialist she could and nothing was working. The first thing I noticed when she came in was her obvious cranial distortions. I adjusted her and she did not stop crying. I left the room to grab something quick and by the time I was back in the room, she had stopped crying and looked up and actually smiled at her mom. It was so heartwarming and amazing to see how powerful that kind of adjustment was! I got so much out of this course. I think the only thing I struggled with was trying to visualize hand placements and motions over the computer but after going over everything it became more obvious.”
Annie Schmidt, D. C.
I wanted to take this class to gain knowledge in order to be able to better treat children (and adults) in my practice. There was great basic knowledge of cranial anatomy and a great base of cranial adjustments as well as learning to feel the different pulses and movements in the cranial region. I have more confidence in treating TMJ problems and helping my pediatric patients. I had an adult patient with a TMJ problem that was not resolving with my typical treatment. Now I know how to release the sphenoid and frontal bone and was able to get him to heal. Thank you for a great class! It was all new information to me, so I was overwhelmed as first. I kept watching the videos over and over and by the end, I felt as though It was really coming together for me.
