I told unbelieving parents: “I feel that there is a good boy inside of your son. I am hoping that this therapy will allow him to come out.”
A six-year-old boy presented with severe hyperactivity and bedwetting issues. His mother said in desperation: “We just cannot get through to him. He falls apart quickly and pees in his pants. He was a terrible sleeper as a baby and is still a bedwetter.”
Sure enough, he had a zero-second brain cycle and severe neck, throat, and pelvic strain on my examination. I suggested a series of treatment visits to help free up his fascial web.
One of my great wishes for the birth profession is to fully understand that a cord wrap can tighten the fascial web and possibly create a lifetime of havoc. Even if the cord is immediately unwrapped, that fascial strain can still remain. Any cord wrap strongly indicates therapy at birth—as soon as possible after the injury.
At my first visit, the web started to release, with his brain cycle opening to 70 seconds. Because his neck muscles were so tight, I asked mom to massage them at home for five minutes a day.
At the second visit, mom said: “What a difference in my son. He was a good boy for two days but then went back to his old self.” That telIs me therapy is working perfectly.
I explained that the top layers of fascial strain let go, which gave him temporary relief, but the deeper layers surfaced. Many visits are usually required to completely peel the onion of trauma. I am expecting a “good boy” at the end of treatment.
I have tremendous empathy for these children. Through no fault of their own, they can be sentenced to a lifetime of needless suffering. Maybe this story will help the world wake up to what is possible for newborns.
