An Important Aspect of the Work at Birth

The work at birth offers so many benefits. For a few babies this one advantage maybe monumental.

An adult patient has been dealing with in-utero strain for nine years. At every session she accesses those strains, but never fully releases them. Recently, she felt that her left arm needed to continue to move into an even more strained position, but her current anatomy prohibited her from doing that. I was puzzled.

I realized that two birth advantages are flexibility and a small body. If we had seen this patient then, she probably could have gone into that extreme position where the fascial web could have fully released. But after growth and the aging process, she was not able to recreate that fetal fascial strain position to fully heal.

Another adult patient has been treated for eleven years. She has exhibited many upper-body conditions like head, jaw, neck and chest pain over that time. Basically, she continues to return to a deep arching strain pattern, where pain is inhibiting her from completing the session.

My thoughts go back to the infant research where we worked with hundreds of arching babies. I later worked with a severely arching baby where the back of the head was touching the back of the legs (Sandifer Syndrome). This arching strain pattern can create a lifetime of health issues.

My sense is that this adult patient needed to go into this position for correction. Because of aging and growth, she was not able to fully recreate that birth strain, possibly inhibiting her from experiencing complete relief.

Our work deals with universal and timeless facts—every human being spends time in a uterus and experiences birth. Ninety percent of us have soft-tissue strain from deliverylabor, and fetal traumas. Let’s work the tightness out on day one to prevent a lifetime of suffering.
