Student Reviews of Functional Bowen™ Concepts I ©

“The course very effectively integrated concepts of fasciology & kinesiology with practical instruction in techniques to release hypertonic muscles & muscle groups. The course exceeded expectations in providing initial proficiency in correcting structural/postural imbalance in muscle groups. Proficiency is quickly provided by a protocol that systematically guided the practitioner through a sequence of releases that restores balance without spending too much time trying to identify the source of the difficulty.” – Ray Mc Clain, LMT

“This is an Amazing, efficient, very effective modality for creating and/or enhancing circulation and mobility, and improving posture. All techniques are grounded in formal A&P foundational training, and presented in sequentially appropriate context. Judy is a fabulous teacher with a rich history of experience to share in addition to a broad range of education that supports this basis for the techniques presented.” – T. Gelman LMT, PMTI Massage Schl Admin.

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 effects on infant “functional mobility” in the achievement/retention of successful breastfeeding, normal structural development as well as meeting developmental milestones. The information acquired in this course is devoted to learning advanced muscle release techniques in this patient population. It is lecture based with ample demonstration and practice with classmates (student to faculty ratio is 12:1 or less).

Objectives


Baby boy

The following objectives will be measured by active student discussion and demonstration during hands-on participation in each practicum session of the course. Participants will be able to:

  • Verbally demonstrate advanced knowledge of the interrelationship between patient’s birth/medical history including predisposing factors affecting an infant’s/child’s “functional mobility”, presenting posture as assessed to include often unseen muscle-related structural barriers and the outcomes observed in muscle pattern dysfunctions noted (i.e. breastfeeding and mobility challenges).
  • Demonstrate advanced postural assessment techniques for the purpose of quickly evaluating interrelated structural deviations to be differentiated/identified, therapeutically addressed and evaluated for corrections observed in the moment and with follow up therapy.
  • Demonstrate advanced differentiation between individual hypertonic muscles and muscle groups, identifying possible associated impingement syndromes, and learn the specifically associated structural deviations that present in these cases.
  • Demonstrate an advanced understanding of muscle dysfunction patterns and related structural outcomes for the purpose of understanding how best to develop a plan of corrective action through active muscle release with passive and active range of motion, as well as suggested parent-based home therapeutic exercise.
  • Demonstrate by means of direct participation, the acquisition of advanced muscle release and balance skills that will assist in actively correcting structural deviations.
  • Communicate and demonstrate ongoing advanced assessment strategies for assessing muscle compliance progress and evaluating related patient/client outcomes.
  • Demonstrate the use of collaborative strategies with parents/caregivers, allied health providers, referral resources, and patient/client care advocates.

CLASS EVALUATION of FUNCTIONAL BOWEN™ THERAPY CONCEPTS II – THE PEDIATRIC APPLICATION FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS


Class Evaluation by Professional Health Care Professionals.



“Excellent course! Thank you for your excellent, compassionate, and integrative work. The hands-on practice was imperative and your individualized attention to each participant’s needs was extremely helpful and supportive. The days are long but full of detail that makes it very worthwhile. Can’t wait to begin practicing right away!” – N. Johanson, SLP/CLC

“Judy has an excellent manner of explaining and demonstrating Functional Bowen Therapy™ in a way that a parent/caregiver is able to understand and continue what is done by the therapist at home.

Through this advanced assessment, including maternal history and the mother/child’s birth experience, one can easily understand the treatment objectives to be accomplished. Further the therapeutic outcome of the child with significant dysfunction, as demonstrated in class, was phenomenal.

“Judy is a natural teacher with extensive knowledge and experience. She’s passionate about helping others, who seek to help their patients/family, to be successful participants in the healing process.” – A. Etter RN

“Amazing! Every Nurse or Healthcare Professional should attend. Judy has taken Western Medicine’s scope of practice, which is typically narrowed in vision and completely opened up the healthcare practitioner’s perspective, offering a new and effective approach to assessment and care of these newborns, infants and children.” – H. Gillan RN

“It’s amazing how Functional Bowen™ Therapy can be applied to the pediatric population in helping correct early myofascial dysfunctional patterns and promote normal developmental growth.

Judy does an excellent job teaching and explaining the course objectives and concepts. She applies scientific knowledge and results from her own evidence-based practice to her class. I enjoyed the hands-on learning environment.” – J. Salonga RN

“As a therapist who has seen mainly adults previously, I feel it’s important to take this class to provide even more well-rounded adult-patient care, using these advanced assessment skills. I have used the Functional Bowen Method™ in my practice for several years now and find it amazingly effective. I attended to learn how best to apply it in the care of this age population.

Pursuing therapy for children of any age this course is essential because it stresses the effects of fascial pulling across the human frame. It also teaches a better way to think about, assess, and help through corrective body-work those structural dysfunctions in the infant/child population that often interrupts their growth and development.

I was impressed by the emotional/social component discussed relating to the parents as primary team-members and essential participants in the care of their child. This course provides clues at all levels and stages of growth that help the therapist better understand what dysfunctional issues they are actually seeing, quite possibly over time, and how best to help make positive changes.

These changes should be addressed especially in children who are unable to communicate for themselves to let us know what is wrong. Finally, this class gave us tools to alleviate their suffering/difficulties, thereby increasing their opportunity to grow in a healthy way and be successful in life.” – B. Shields CMP

“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.” – C. Decker LMT

“Very, very helpful to observe treating children. Explanations were clear and illustrations made things clearer.” – L. Potter L Ac

“I very much enjoyed this program and recommend all lactation consultants take it. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.” – K. Poremba RN, IBCLC

“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!” – D. Decker RN

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 effects on infant “functional mobility” in the achievement/retention of successful breastfeeding, normal structural development as well as meeting developmental milestones. The information acquired in this course is devoted to learning advanced muscle release techniques in this patient population. It is lecture based with ample demonstration and practice with classmates (student to faculty ratio is 12:1 or less).

Objectives


The following objectives will be measured by active student discussion and demonstration during hands-on participation in each practicum session of the course. Participants will be able to:

  • Verbally demonstrate advanced knowledge of the interrelationship between patient’s birth/medical history including predisposing factors affecting an infant’s/child’s “functional mobility”, presenting posture as assessed to include often unseen muscle-related structural barriers and the outcomes observed in muscle pattern dysfunctions noted (i.e. breastfeeding and mobility challenges).
  • Demonstrate advanced postural assessment techniques for the purpose of quickly evaluating interrelated structural deviations to be differentiated/identified, therapeutically addressed and evaluated for corrections observed in the moment and with follow up therapy.
  • Demonstrate advanced differentiation between individual hypertonic muscles and muscle groups, identifying possible associated impingement syndromes, and learn the specifically associated structural deviations that present in these cases.
  • Demonstrate an advanced understanding of muscle dysfunction patterns and related structural outcomes for the purpose of understanding how best to develop a plan of corrective action through active muscle release with passive and active range of motion, as well as suggested parent-based home therapeutic exercise.
  • Demonstrate by means of direct participation, the acquisition of advanced muscle release and balance skills that will assist in actively correcting structural deviations.
  • Communicate and demonstrate ongoing advanced assessment strategies for assessing muscle compliance progress and evaluating related patient/client outcomes.
  • Demonstrate the use of collaborative strategies with parents/caregivers, allied health providers, referral resources, and patient/client care advocates.

CLASS EVALUATION of FUNCTIONAL BOWEN™ THERAPY CONCEPTS II – THE PEDIATRIC APPLICATION FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS


Class Evaluation by Professional Health Care Professionals.



“Excellent course! Thank you for your excellent, compassionate, and integrative work. The hands-on practice was imperative and your individualized attention to each participant’s needs was extremely helpful and supportive. The days are long but full of detail that makes it very worthwhile. Can’t wait to begin practicing right away!” – N. Johanson, SLP/CLC

“Judy has an excellent manner of explaining and demonstrating Functional Bowen Therapy™ in a way that a parent/caregiver is able to understand and continue what is done by the therapist at home.

Through this advanced assessment, including maternal history and the mother/child’s birth experience, one can easily understand the treatment objectives to be accomplished. Further the therapeutic outcome of the child with significant dysfunction, as demonstrated in class, was phenomenal.

“Judy is a natural teacher with extensive knowledge and experience. She’s passionate about helping others, who seek to help their patients/family, to be successful participants in the healing process.” – A. Etter RN

“Amazing! Every Nurse or Healthcare Professional should attend. Judy has taken Western Medicine’s scope of practice, which is typically narrowed in vision and completely opened up the healthcare practitioner’s perspective, offering a new and effective approach to assessment and care of these newborns, infants and children.” – H. Gillan RN

“It’s amazing how Functional Bowen™ Therapy can be applied to the pediatric population in helping correct early myofascial dysfunctional patterns and promote normal developmental growth.

Judy does an excellent job teaching and explaining the course objectives and concepts. She applies scientific knowledge and results from her own evidence-based practice to her class. I enjoyed the hands-on learning environment.” – J. Salonga RN

“As a therapist who has seen mainly adults previously, I feel it’s important to take this class to provide even more well-rounded adult-patient care, using these advanced assessment skills. I have used the Functional Bowen Method™ in my practice for several years now and find it amazingly effective. I attended to learn how best to apply it in the care of this age population.

Pursuing therapy for children of any age this course is essential because it stresses the effects of fascial pulling across the human frame. It also teaches a better way to think about, assess, and help through corrective body-work those structural dysfunctions in the infant/child population that often interrupts their growth and development.

I was impressed by the emotional/social component discussed relating to the parents as primary team-members and essential participants in the care of their child. This course provides clues at all levels and stages of growth that help the therapist better understand what dysfunctional issues they are actually seeing, quite possibly over time, and how best to help make positive changes.

These changes should be addressed especially in children who are unable to communicate for themselves to let us know what is wrong. Finally, this class gave us tools to alleviate their suffering/difficulties, thereby increasing their opportunity to grow in a healthy way and be successful in life.” – B. Shields CMP

“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.” – C. Decker LMT

“Very, very helpful to observe treating children. Explanations were clear and illustrations made things clearer.” – L. Potter L Ac

“I very much enjoyed this program and recommend all lactation consultants take it. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.” – K. Poremba RN, IBCLC

“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!” – D. Decker RN

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.

 

 


 

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.

It also teaches a better way to think about, assess, and help through corrective body-work those structural dysfunctions in the infant/child population that often interrupts their growth and development.

I was impressed by the emotional/social component discussed relating to the parents as primary team-members and essential participants in the care of their child. This course provides clues at all levels and stages of growth that help the therapist better understand what dysfunctional issues they are actually seeing, quite possibly over time, and how best to help make positive changes.

These changes should be addressed especially in children who are unable to communicate for themselves to let us know what is wrong. Finally, this class gave us tools to alleviate their suffering/difficulties, thereby increasing their opportunity to grow in a healthy way and be successful in life.” – B. Shields CMP

“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.” – C. Decker LMT

“Very, very helpful to observe treating children. Explanations were clear and illustrations made things clearer.” – L. Potter L Ac

“I very much enjoyed this program and recommend all lactation consultants take it. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.” – K. Poremba RN, IBCLC

“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!” – D. Decker RN
