Baby Brain Score and Gillespie Approach Mission

Dr. Barry Gillespie created the Baby Brain Score and Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy. His and his associates’ goal is to have the Baby Brain Score and Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy in use worldwide for every birth. We also foresee the mother-to-be receiving Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy before conception to ensure better hormonal function, less strain in pregnancy, an easier birth and better overall health for the newborn. We believe that these two steps will promote happiness and peace to the planet.

Dr. Barry Gillespie’s vision is for the Baby Brain Score and Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy to be in use worldwide for every birth so that babies are in the best position to enjoy robust health throughout their lives.

The Baby Brain Score Measures Neonatal Neurophysiology

The Baby Brain Score (BBS) is a screening tool that measures neonatal neurophysiology. It is an effective method of manually checking the brain function of a newborn. If there is neurological compromise, the application of Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (CFT) in the first few minutes of life can help improve or correct the structural effects of fetal and birth traumas. Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy can prevent many diseases from appearing later in life and, more importantly, promote optimum cognitive brain function.

The Two Principles Behind the Baby Brain Score and Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy

  1. Craniosacral motion: The brain needs to breathe. It has to expand and contract smoothly to function correctly.
  2. Fascial (connective tissue) restriction: The fascia has to be free for the body to function optimally.

A medical article, “A Research Proposal Evaluating the Effectiveness of the Brain Score and Craniosacral Fascial Therapy for Neonates,” about the Baby Brain Score was published in The Internet Journal of Pediatrics and Neonatology (2010: Volume 11, Number 2), a peer-reviewed medical journal. It discusses how the effects of a difficult pregnancy, an arduous labor, the use of forceps/vacuum suction, a Caesarian section, the umbilical cord wrapped around the throat/body and other traumas can impair the function of the newborn’s brain and spinal cord.

Fetal and birth trauma can cause diseases from serious brain injury, including autism, cerebral palsy and epilepsy, to less-severe nervous system diseases such as ADHD, strabismus and reading (dyslexia) and speech disorders. Fetal and birth trauma can also cause the more-common pediatric illnesses of colic, esophageal reflux, constipation, digestive issues, nursing issues, sleeping issues, asthma, earache, headache, rhinitis, neck ache, jaw pain and scoliosis.

Baby Brain Score Medical Article

Dr. Barry Gillespie created the Baby Brain Score (BBS) in 2006. This screening tool quickly assesses brain function in the first few minutes of life. A compromised Baby Brain Score alerts professionals to the immediate need for Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy.

Infant Research Article

Kristen Myers, Michael Myers, Priscilla Kercher and Dr. Barry Gillespie completed their infant research paper in 2014. They found that Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy/Infant-Driven Model was able to correct infants with many conditions that have plagued the human race since the beginning of time.
