The digestive and respiratory systems in pediatric Osteopathy
3 days workshop
A healthy digestive system at birth, when it is really functional, is necessary to prevent respiratory and sensory-nervous problems later.The visceral input and information from the digestive system follow the afferent visceral fibbers through the spinal cord, the brain stem and limbic system; then informations are sent through the autonomic nervous system in a systemic way to the body in order to maintain homeostasis. These same neuropeptides are found in the respiratory system.
This 3 days workshop will explore the anatomy, embryology and osteopathic connections. The osteopath can be a fulcrum, listening and sending vibratory informations through a vibratory fulcrum, helping the self healing process and enhancing the immunology of the baby.
This three days workshop will be essentially practical.
Some exercices can be done in the nature.
