We commonly found oral trauma, resulting in eye, sinus, jaw, and throat issues, in our research babies. It could first present as a nursing issue, a tongue-tie, and later a possible thriving problem with breathing, sucking, and swallowing difficulties. At the beginning of the research we did local CFT/IDM techniques to help clear these issues piecemeal. But in the Summer of 2011 Krissy discovered that most of these issues originated in the pectoral areas. The fascia here would pull and connect the dots into the neck and head. These issues would not fully clear until the pectoral regions were strain-free. In most cases the pelvic fascial strain was pulling on the pectoral areas, causing the head and neck issues. Hence, embracing the connecting the dot philosophy became critical for infant therapy.
I have extrapolated this concept to my adult/child practice. I know when someone presents with a head/neck issue, the problem probably started as birth trauma in the pelvic/pectoral areas. I also know that we will need to get back to that time and space for authentic healing.
