Description


This course is an intensive version of the Functional Bowen™ Pediatric Application Process that has been specifically designed for those licensed Healthcare Professionals in the Breastfeeding, Maternal/Child Health & Family Support Field.

Synopsis


Baby Nursing

This course is a 3.5 day intensive packed with myo-fascial movement theory using a “global” approach to structural assessment and hands-on practice in use of The Pediatric Functional Bowen™ Method. This course teaches the clinician advance skills in working to resolve structural barriers in the mother/infant dyad who struggle with breastfeeding difficulties/dysfunctions. Further, it explores advanced assessment skills in determining those predisposing factors relating to these barriers and their possible affects on infant “functional mobility” in the achievement/retention of successful breastfeeding, normal structural development as well as meeting developmental milestones.

Outcomes


This course is intended to vastly improve the clinician’s assessment skills and provide commensurate manipulative tools in enabling them to assist in the resolve of the often hidden structural barriers and their profoundly destructive manifestations. A full list of objectives may be reviewed at the link below.

Judy Terwilliger is a Registered Nurse, Certified Massage Therapist and Functional Mobility Specialist who maintains a broad base of practice spanning over three decades. She oversees a busy pain management practice in Sacramento CA, and works extensively with rehabilitation physicians to effect therapeutic change across a broad range of myofascial/muscle pattern dysfunctions. From infants to seniors she promotes functional mobility, focusing on a wellness paradigm, therapeutically utilizing a tensegrity-based modality that she has developed and teaches nationwide called The Functional Bowen Method™.

Combining her Western Medicine background with her Complimentary Medicine studies, her focus on structure-function balance in the field of pain-management, from infants to seniors, using her Functional Bowen Method™ has seen many successes.

She currently is an active member of the National Society of Pediatric Nurses, the American College of Sports Medicine and has been a featured speaker on the subject of myofascial dysfunction assessment and resolves from Sacramento CA to Washington D.C.

Student Reviews by RN’s, IBCLC’s and other health professionals in March of 2017 / Pennsylvania:


“I thoroughly enjoyed how eye-opening this class was! Seeing the dysfunctions on an actual child and seeing them resolved only made me more exited to learn this…amazing! The progression pictures were so very helpful to solidify the concept of what happens in the body when dysfunction isn’t released early. Watching while children were worked on was so helpful, as was having Judy go through how to deal with different age groups.” Cara D.

“Very, very helpful to observe treating children. Explanations were clear and illustrations made things clearer.” Lynn P.

“I very much enjoyed this program and recommend all lactation consultants take it. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.” Kara P.

“I appreciate Judy’s ability to read her audience! She provides very technical information in a practical manner. She is impacting health care wherever she presents. Judy is very relatable, understanding, empathetic, knowledgeable and effective. She is improving the quality of life one infant at a time!” Donna D.

Course Objectives:


1. Recognizing or Becoming Aware of:

  • Often unseen muscle-related structural barriers
  • Predisposing factors affecting an infant’s “functional mobility”
  • Breastfeeding challenges that demonstrate Structural Dysfunction

2. Improve assessment skills of:

Be able to:

  • Identify the correlation between higher than normal muscle tonus and the often structurally-related breastfeeding challenges in the infant/mother dyad.
  • Identify at least three predisposing factors in a “normal” delivery that lend themselves to the hidden barriers to functional mobility.
  • Recognize structural manifestations (how they present) which may need referral to assist in the resolve of related breastfeeding barriers.
  • Define the following areas of Assessment, Adaptation and Intervention that are associated with these hidden structural barriers to breastfeeding.

How B.E.S.T. Relates To Breast 3

Those student’s attendance whose licensure permits manipulative work on infants are welcome to ask further questions.

NOTE: The How BEST (Basic Evalution of Structural Tension) Relates to Breast© class serves as an introduction of the need for assessment and a cursory way to go about it with self help strategies and referring as needed in mind.
