Praise for:
Occipital Fiber Analysis & Soft Tissue Reflex Techniques (CMRT)

“I took this course because I’ve always been interested in SOT as I had the technique performed on me while I was a student and it was the most miraculous adjustment I had ever received. I was hoping to obtain new skills to help my patients meet their health goals, especially my pediatric population.

Three takeaways:

  1. Less can be more when it comes to making the impact you want on people’s lives and health.
  2. The body is an amazing healing machine and it has hidden indicators for things you never would have realized.
  3. The more you practice and perform CMRT, the more you will be amazed at what you can learn about your patient’s body and how to support their nervous system.

Personally, this program has reignited my passion for chiropractic care. I was down to very few adjusting patients as I mainly practice functional medicine, but this course has made me want to do more with my chiropractic skills. Professionally, I have seen tremendous results on the few patients I have practiced CMRT on. I want to continue to learn more SOT. This style of adjusting makes more sense than anything I was taught in school. I only wish I had pursued it sooner.

The first patient I tried it on was a patient suffering from anxiety. At the time, I had only watched a few of the videos. She had been complaining of left sided chest pain under her breast that would ease for a few days after her adjustment and come right back. I did the coronary protocol for emotional issues and she came back 4 weeks later telling me that the pain had been gone for 3 weeks until everything got stressful for the holidays. I was amazed. I’m excited to continue using the technique until I become proficient.

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and expertise. I loved taking this course and learning. I’m excited to implement the protocols more as I see things come up with my patients. I’ve already changed the way I talk to new patients so they understand that the chiropractic side is non-negotiable if they want to work with me because I believe in the power of CMRT. I can’t wait to continue learning for you both!”

Dr. Jennifer Vannoy

“I chose to take this course as I am always interested in learning about the many intricate connections are body has in unexpected ways. I have increasingly seen more patients with ongoing visceral complaints and want to be able to help them in the best way possible, and in a way that no other health care provider can do.

  1. The ability to go back through and re-play the content is so important when such a short video contains an entire protocol. Also having slides available for printing allows for review later on and a quick double check as needed in clinic.
  2. These protocols are applicable day 1 after learning the content. As I am slowly getting more experience assessing occipital fibers, I am able to ask patients if they have any coordinating symptoms to the CMRT content. So many patients are initially surprised that chiropractic care may help their digestive complaints, respiratory complaints, etc.
  3. SOT is an intricate and complex technique to learn and master, but each piece I learn furthers my understanding that the nervous system has so many ways of telling us what it needs and where the problem lies, as long as you know how to ask it. My mind is still blown with the story that was shared during the Live Q&A about Dr. Rosen noticing that a patient may have had cancer return/other pathological changes due to her changing and non-responsive occipital fiber.

These courses continue to motivate me to study and work towards mastery of content, especially when we are serving an entirely sick and unwell community. The people in my community are, sadly, not hearing about the impact chiropractic care has on the nervous system from other providers, and information in this course and other SOT courses I have taken so far help me to be certain in my communication with my patients.

I have been using the T3 respiratory syndrome protocols, especially all of the sinus releases, on at least 10 people per day, due to everyone coming in with congestion, post-sinus infections, post-COVID. Every single time the patients leave the office reporting drainage and immediate opening of their airways.

I have also been using the T3 protocols on a patient who had a severe bronchitis post-COVID and lost her voice along with other symptoms due to being ill. She lost her voice for several weeks and was unable to talk (she is a professor at a local university and was unable to teach) and continued to complain of difficulty breathing to her medical doctors. She has gone through several antibiotics and steroids without any resolution to her symptoms. I applied the stylohyoid muscle fixation protocol and within 48 hours her voice had mostly returned. I also have been continuing to manipulate the bronchitis point on her chest and pairing it with costal arch manipulation and post-ganglionic manipulation. Her O2 stats have been slowly increasing over the past few weeks and she is subjectively reporting ability to breathe more deeply, despite not taking any other medications at this time for this condition.

The videos are made with great quality and easily understood. This is content that every chiropractor needs to know to assist their patients in the best way possible.”

Dr. Bethany Carilli

“I have been studying the SOT paradigm for years and have been an eye witness to the benefits of CMRT in real time. I decided to take this course to gain the knowledge of how and when to apply the specific CMRT protocols in chiropractic practice. In my opinion, these techniques allow you to shift the stigma of chiropractic to be recognized as a primary care physician, which is how I wish to serve patients in my practice.

After taking this course, you could guarantee receiving: 1. Specific clinical applications. 2. A detailed checklist to guide you through specific protocols. 3. An understanding of neurological impact and change.

This course has given me further confidence as a primary care chiropractor and allowed me to provide clarity and potential for family members, friends and other practice members who have too often found an end path with certain health conditions and dysfunctions. With the knowledge I have gained I will strive to continue to shift the common misconception that chiropractic only caters solely to musculoskeletal conditions.

I have mainly utilized these techniques in identifying certain underlying problems that have negatively impacted expectations of patient progress. For example, a patient hadn’t been responding to care and after analyzing her occipital fibers and certain reflex points it led me to order further imaging to eventually find an issue with her IUD was perpetuating her issues.

Thank you Dr. Watson and Dr. Rosen for dedicating their lives to this incredible medical knowledge and art we know as chiropractic. I’m looking forward to continuing to study with them for as long as they continue to provide the knowledge they share!”

Dr. Matt Weintraub

“I must tell you that I’ve been practicing the CMRT protocols and I’m absolutely amazed at what is happening with my patients. The feedback has blown me completely away.

I never saw the true power of chiropractic care until now. I believe the world has reduced chiropractors to pain doctors. Even in school we were taught that chiropractic is mainly to manage pain. One of the reasons I got into functional medicine is because I didn’t want to be a glorified PT who could legally adjust a joint.

I can’t believe this whole time SOT was out there and I didn’t know that it embodies what chiropractic care was meant to be. It should be a part of every chiropractic curriculum.

Chiropractic is so much more than pain management and optimizing performance. It’s about restoring function to the organ systems, which is accomplished by removing all interference from the nervous system.

I remember professors telling us something to that effect in school, but they didn’t really TEACH us that concept. The treatment must go beyond the adjustment and restoring motion to spinal joints. There’s more to it and I feel incredibly blessed to have found the key that unlocked the true power of chiropractic for me.

Thank you so much for your dedication to teaching the skills of SOT. I want to learn everything I can. Where do I start??”

Dr. Jennifer Vannoy

“All courses by Dr. Martin are amazing. I can’t get enough of learning from him and his wife Dr Nancy. With the last course I helped a 6 month old baby with Down syndrome who was having a lot of reflux and 6 days without pooping. On the same day of the adjustment, the mother texted me saying that the reflux had improved by 70% and that he had pooped twice without any medicine. That was fantastic! So, I can tell you, the courses are amazing. I use learning on all my patients, children and adults. Dr. Martin changed my professional life. I am grateful to God for having met this wonderful family, because thanks to them, I am able to help many patients. I am very proud to say that he is my mentor and my inspiration.”

Dr. Lilian Aliberti

“Over the past four years I have taken many of Dr. Rosen’s Pediatric programs. When the first CMRT was offered, I immediately signed up! Even after forty one years of practice I am always looking for new tools to insert into my protocols. CMRT gives you a different and insightful way when addressing subluxations of the spine and their somatic relationships. The additional tools of CMRT have given me a greater insight into what is happening within the patient’s body. Just yesterday, I was working with the “rich” Occipital Fibers…specifically line #1 point 1 which brought me to the spinous process if T1, T2, and T10…all sore! I was able to resolve the tenderness as well as the associated organ related issues…so great!!!

Dr. Rosen makes a seemingly complicated protocol very understandable, applicable, and most importantly effective. All of Dr. Rosen’s teachings protocols will separate you from many other practitioners. When you work and promote from within yourself…enhancing your knowledge and abilities…controlling only what you do with the patient on your adjusting table, you will not have to promote yourself on the outside. Your work will speak for itself. Studying with Dr. Rosen has been a Godsend! It has become difficult to think about retiring…I keep on getting busier and busier…thanks to Dr. Rosen. Thanks Marty…”

Robert LaRusso, DC

“I am very excited to have started my SOT journey. I have seen the positive outcomes with using the SOT protocols. I will be studying CMRT through SOT Europe at the beginning of 2024 and this course has allowed me to prepare to get the most out of the live programme.

This CMRT course was an eye-opener, offering a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical skills. It emphasized a holistic view of health, underscoring the importance of spinal care in maintaining overall wellness. As a takeaway, this course has reinforced my belief in the power of chiropractic care and its potential to transform lives by optimizing bodily functions and promoting holistic health.

I’m deeply thankful for this online program, for the Q&A sessions, of which I was not able to attend many this time around. I found Doctors Rosen and Watson extremely approachable and welcoming and I will for sure be doing more courses with you in the future. Thank you so much for your support and kindness, it means a lot to me.”

Dr.  Ricardo Abrantes

“I decided to take this course after learning some pieces of the technique through the Pediatric and SOT course. I wanted to have an understanding of it as well as add another tool to my practice.

This program provided a wealth of information as all of your courses have. I do appreciate how it is broken up into small sections that you can review and move on as you are ready to. The doctor shares are always enjoyable. The questions asked are often similar to ones I had myself at some point in the course.

I have started using these techniques on some select patients as I work on learning the reflex points for each fiber and segment. I am hopeful it will give me some answers in some of my more challenging cases and give me insight into some organ systems that may be showing signs of stress for my patients.”

Dr. Kate Hoffman

“I took this course to further my experience. I practice applied kinesiology and thought this course would be very good to use in my practice.

The program was set up very professionally. It was very easy to use. The videos and written materials helped me learn at my own pace. I have seen very good results with it.

Our son has epilepsy. It has been helpful with balancing him out. On a personal level that’s priceless. Professionally it has given me more tools to use to help all of my patients.

I used these techniques with a patient with digestive issues. It really helped my patient with stomach pain.

Dr. Rosen and Dr. Watson were great. Both very professional and caring. They made sure that I would learn the materials so I can help as many people as possible.”

Dr. Chris Ambrosio

“I took this program to have more links to follow for patients with symptoms that don’t seem to make sense.

I love that I have new insight to certain patients that I didn’t see new ideas/solutions before; I love that I have new clarity from past CMRT classes and studying, to create a flow and more cohesive picture; the added videos with doctor training helped answer questions in common threads in this work and flow in a standard day. I have more confidence and skill

Recently working on some allergy and pneumonia cases… getting faster healing for the people than they reported having the past!

The added doctor videos were amazing! Your ability to point out keys and links were very helpful! The flow and when/where you charge patients and how flow works was very insightful… not recreating a wheel, etc. Thank you!!”

Dr. Stacy Carlin

“I wanted to learn something new. I was hoping to get something to add to my current treatments to work with more organic issues.

My three takeaways are:

  1. This is a great technique and tool to use when you’re stuck in a chronic subluxation pattern to breakthrough to healing.
  2. We can use specific embryologic contact points to balance the reflex arcs of the organ.
  3. Through finding the tender occipital fiber we can go to the chart and find the specific vertebrae that need to be corrected.

Personally I have gained some confidence and know with more practice that will just increase more. Professionally it has sparked an interest in me to continue to learn more.

I used the ileocecal reflex point on a patient suffering with constipation and other GI symptoms. I ran into them a few days later and they commented how much it helped them. They now have normal bowel movements and no more bloating.

Thank you for your time and creating this wonderful course.”

Dr. Rachel Grosik

I wanted to dive deeper into the occipital fibers and find out what to do about them once I have determined what I’m finding.

There are a lot of somatic complaints that have visceral components and without addressing those components, the complaint tends to linger. No system works independently.

This program has made me think deeper into patient complaints, and has given me tools to help more people.

74 year old female with recurrent right shoulder pain for almost a year. One respiratory protocol treatment and the pain was gone for almost two months.

Thank you for sharing this information.”

Amanda White, DC

“I needed a technique to stabilize my patients who came back with the same pattern over and over again

My takeaways are:   Listening carefully: the patient’s pain pattern can help identify their possible organ reflex pattern The post Ganglionic correction is necessary to end the protocol and balance out the organ activity The amount of stimulation (pressure) when correcting the occipital fibre and reflex is important for the correction to be done efficiently and for it to hold in time.

This program helped me to push my limits and dig deeper to find the root of the problem when my treatment didn’t last over time. Maintenance is easier to talk about when all the aspects of a patient’s symptoms have been handled.

The Adrenal reflex and Respiratory reflex were helpful to use during this period of the year, enabling the patient to keep the benefits of the treatment longer. In addition, the cranial balancing techniques, which can be included easily in every session, usually does settle the patient down and they end up feeling less on edge.

Thank you for the time you spent teaching us this technique and helping us for the past few months.”

Dr. Chloé Balay

“I took this program to better understand the CMRT protocols. To develop a concise approach to chiropractic care for patients who have dysfunction in organ systems and chronic subluxations.

Utilize all of the notes, resources and videos and review them several times. Dr. Rosen doesn’t waste words – he says a lot in a short amount of time. Reviewing has helped me get nuggets of information that it may have taken much longer to learn in practice.

This program has given me a methodical approach and therefore the confidence and competence to assist patients with chronic subluxation patterns and concomitant organ system dysfunction.

I used the T5 gastric protocol and had great results with chronic reflux.

Thank you for offering the course in this format.”

Dr. Laura Dowling

“I Love soft tissue work. I have been doing soft tissue for 27 years. I also love the idea of healing with the organ systems and linking the body to embryological connections via the postganglionic reflexes. I feel that this class was just more to everything that I have already learned from and with you. It is very complex information, and it really has opened my skill set.

My three takeaways are: 1. The order of finding and dealing with the line two fiber analysis and when to use the CMRT for visceral indicators. 2. The way to make and distribute a chart that has the subjective images of pain location and the actual fibers and vertebral level. 3. The interconnection of where and how each line two fiber and different organs may cross reference one another.

I have more learning to do and more study as I integrate this into my practice. I cannot wait to have the skill set to see the interconnections in my practice.

Wow, thank you so very much for sharing your information, knowledge, experience and life with us and for keeping the passion alive!”

Dr. Brooke Lee

“I took this course to have a more specific technique for organic challenges.

Each module is detailed, organized and well thought out.

I am able to apply the content to not only my patients but also my family.

I have a male patient with Addison’s disease who has been able to reduce his medications and able to put on weight since beginning care utilizing some of the CMRT techniques.

Love learning from you all!!”

Dr. Devin Reissing

“This course was intriguing and easy to follow considering the subject matter complexity. I have learned that this analysis and techniques is providing a unique window into the care and needs of my patients, helping to break those stubborn plateaus in care we encounter in or practice.”

Ken Cooper, DC

“The CMRT class is AMAZING! It adds the additional layer of information to helping your patients improve their overall wellbeing. There are times in clinical practice where subluxations aren’t clearing and you feel like you are missing a piece of the puzzle….this is for that. The information presented is invaluable and the ability to have live questions answered is key. If you are looking to up your game, and have a more well-rounded practice, don’t hesitate and take this course.”

Stephanie Rittenour, DC

“I love Dr. Rosen and his teachings so I knew I would learn something great by taking it!

This program is: Easy to use, clear cut format and always very informative!

This program makes me look at patients and health situations from a different perspective.”

Dr. Jessica Steenstra

“I wanted to increase my knowledge in a different area and provide more treatment options for patients especially patients with constant recurring symptoms or ones that need a different approach.

This program adds more choice to treatment options with visceral connections to treatment and is a reminder that a softer approach also valuable and very effective.

I am happier to assess and treat a wider variety of symptoms, better understanding of the links to other symptoms and referral patterns.

An 85 year old post cancer patient, constant dizziness and balance issues, mild to moderate temporary relief, treated left line 2/area 2 with T3 and instant changes no dizziness for much more prolonged periods.

Well run course, great access to questions etc. and good speed of delivery, sometimes difficult to follow the video demonstration and see exactly what’s being done, transcript helps, thanks for all.”

Dr. Tarryn Essex

“I took this program to improve my skills.

It has given me the ability to better evaluate the patient’s body and understand the connections.

It is helping to work with that intelligence of the body.

Patient was having pain on inhalation. Used the CMRT Patient could breathe without pain.”

Dr. Jean Squire

“I decided to continue after taking the SOT series in order to help patients with chronic issues/patterns.

1. After practicing and being able to identify active line 2 fibers, they can help the Dr. find the ‘lynch pin’, where the cause of a patients problems lie and what would give them the optimal chance to heal. 2. Through patients complaints /symptoms identify which fibers/ organs/ vertebrae are related. 3. Understanding of progression of subluxation from inferior tippage to rotation, closing off dural port and creating the visceral somatic arc.

This program hasn’t impacted me as much as the SOT series. I found it to be a lot of information and specifically for palpating the fibers. I feel I would have needed to be in person to make sure I am finding the correct areas. I do plan to continue to learn from my notes and hopefully integrate some of the most common protocols that we learned. I think the information is very interesting but very intense to learn.

I have found some active line 2 fibers and patients are amazed that it correlates to issues they are having. I have not had the chance to practice the specific protocols for the organs as I am still not proficient in identifying the fibers. I have practiced palpating and neutralizing fibers and associated vertebrae.

Living in Germany, I’m very thankful to have these online seminars to continue learning from abroad. I would love to someday make it to an in person seminar.”

Dr. Kelly Schubert

“I took this program for more understanding of using the line fibers in a more complete application.

CMRT allows for specificity and answers especially when cases prove to be more difficult and less straightforward in their response to care.

This course has allowed me to provide a more complete care plan for my patients. I use line fibers daily and now adding into it the depth of CMRT will take a bit to truly appreciate the applications!

You both are amazing!!! 🙂 Thank you for all that you do!!”

Dr. Kenneth Cooper

“I took this program to improve my knowledge on CMRT.

This program is very detailed.  There’s always more than what patients are complaining and anything can cause anything.

This program has made me more knowledgeable.”

Dr. Yusri Khir Johari

“I took this course because i wanted to extend my knowledge on my basic SOT.

This is a complete seminar with a lot of information. It is accessible with great sharing.

Thank you.”

Dr. Amélie Valette

“I love studying DeJarnette! This class really helped me integrate CMRT into my practice.

The CMRT course led by Dr. Marty Rosen was incredibly valuable. It provided me with a newfound certainty in treating patients with visceral-somatic reflex issues. The material was presented in a clear and understandable manner, making it easy to grasp. Most importantly, I was able to seamlessly integrate this new technique into my practice, enhancing my patient care.

It has given me more certainty when working with viscero-somatic issues.

I have cleared multiple patients with gallbladder and stomach issues! I seem to find more gallbladder, stomach, pancreas and ICV.

You guys do a great job! I really appreciate all your help.”
