How B.E.S.T. (Basic Evaluation of Structural Tension) Relates to Breast©

Judy Terwilliger

Speaker: Judy Terwilliger , RN, CMT, FBT

Duration: 60 Mins — Credits: 1 CERP, 1 Dietetic CEU

Gold Lactation Online Conference

Note: The presentation will be available at the GoldLactation.com website through June 1st, 2017.

Abstract:

This lecture/course is intended to familiarize the medical and allied health community in the recognition of the often-overlooked muscle-related structural barriers to breastfeeding. It provides a discussion of clues to the predisposing factors of these barriers and explores their affect on infant “functional mobility” as it relates to the achievement of successful breastfeeding.

It is intended to improve the clinician’s assessment skills as they work with the mother/infant dyad in resolving breastfeeding difficulties/dysfunctions by development of insight into these often hidden and profoundly destructive structural manifestations.

Recognition of these barriers with an emphasis on self-help techniques and when/who to refer parents/caregivers to for help, together with how to best meet their teaching/training needs across cultural barriers, is discussed. The ultimate purpose is the achievement of insight to improve the clinician’s evaluation process, better enabling them to promote, enhance and even save the breastfeeding experience of the families served.

To be a successful advocate for truly functional breastfeeding that promotes joyful, prolonged retention, your assessment skills of infants’ musculature must look beyond oro/myofacial structures using a whole-body approach.

Course Information


Course Synopsis:


How B.E.S.T. Relates To Breast 1

Learn Structural Assessment Skills for Infants/Children learning to quickly evaluate for muscle tension and its involvement in noted Breastfeeding Dysfunctions and Developmental Delays. This class will add new eyes to your practice and tools in your skill set to bring resolves.

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:

  • Overlooked structural manifestations

3. Gain insights into an improved evaluation process

  • Aid resolve breastfeeding difficulties for the family unit

4. Recognition of Structural Barriers with an emphasis on:

  • Self-help techniques, teaching/training parents across cultural barriers
  • When/who to refer parents/caregivers to for help

Course Outcomes:


How B.E.S.T. Relates To Breast 2

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

Class Format: Similar to a breakout session where these is some lecture/demonstration but a lot of discussion and time allowed for questions and answers. Come and learn an essential skill.

Note: Wherever possible a live demonstration will be incorporated. Please be aware, however, that since Ms. Terwilliger is skilled to release any child whom she evaluates in class for educational purposes, she will likewise offer a therapeutic release at that time. Those student’s attendance whose licensure permits manipulative work on infants are welcome to ask further questions.

Tension and Temperament a Muscle Journey: Evaluating the Behavior to See the Need.

Holistic Moms Event March 2016

Thank you again for the wonderful talk!

– Janine Bowen, Chapter President

Often times our children express themselves in ways that seem out of sorts, angry, mean spirited and down right selfish toward family, friends and each other. Is this just a character issue or could it be more?

 

Come explore ways to evaluate your child’s temperament as it relates to their musculature.

 

We will discuss clues to actual muscle tension that affect behaviors, explore avenues of self help and self soothing for your child and determine when and where to refer out for help.We will also discuss how Functional Bowen™Therapy works to resolve these issues, how it differs from acupuncture, CST, chiropractic care and a host of other treatment modalities.

Breastfeeding Mother

Though the actual delivery process is managed in many ways for the best possible outcome, it is still highly likely that despite these best of efforts, baby’s response to the birth process is traumatic. It’s really no one’s fault! It is simply a hidden barrier that baby has developed from his/her exposure to the developmental and birth process. When this structural problem is properly acknowledged, evaluated and therapeutically relieved – normal functional movement in baby is restored. The joy of breastfeeding is saved. Tears of anguish become tears of joy, as this connection miracle is reborn with family peace and sanity restored. — Judy Terwilliger
