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. 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.

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.

Student Reviews by RNs, CMTs, and other health professionals:


“As a massage therapist, I am very good and successful at what I do. After learning Functional Bowen™, I was blown away at what I did not know. I am very happy to know this form of therapy and incorporate it in my practice, if not replace my massage techniques entirely. I am so grateful for the training.” – A.R., Certified Massage Therapist

“I really enjoyed taking this course. I felt like I learned a lot of useful tools that I can integrate in my nursing practice to help others in their healing process through this adjunctive therapy. I loved the hands on experience and the amount of time we had to be able to practice and apply the concepts that we learned. Judy is very knowledgeable and uses scientific evidence-based practice to support what she teaches. Judy also has a vast array of skill sets from her nursing profession of 30+ years that she is able to bring into her Bowen therapy practice. Great course overall!” – J.S., Registered Nurse

“The entire class and experience was fabulous!” – L.G., Certified Massage Therapist

“Judy provided a well thought out, instructive and informative class for the Functional Bowen™ Concepts I class. She was willing to answer any and all questions along with providing clear and articulate instruction for any difficulties presented by the students.” – D.L., Certified Massage Therapist
