"I took Olivier Bazin’s Neuro-Visceral Manipulation of the Thorax and Abdomen (NVMTA)
in February 2018 in Palm Beach. The material was introduced very well and appeared to be very well researched prior to be presented at the workshop. Oliver exuded confidence and created the atmosphere of trust and ease.
I especially noticed his perfectly balanced posture in every procedure he performed.
In the weeks since the seminar,
I had a chance to perform many of the techniques I learned, and the result was great. I also like the location at the Upledger clinic and prefer it to any hotel setting.”

To Our TAs
We’re so grateful for our remarkable Teaching Assistants. To show our appreciation, we offered a BI TA Community Day on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 in Palm Beach, Florida.
Dee Ahern, BI-D, and Pierre Vey, DO, BI-D worked together to lead a wonderful event with open discussions and hands-on techniques. We thank all of the outstanding Teaching Assistants that could attend and look forward to another day of unity in the future.

  “Thank you so much! What a wonderful, connective, learning, sharing, appreciating experience.”

Allopathic and Complementary Healthcare - Let's Integrate Rather than Diminish
In Australia, an effort to label all alternative (traditional, complementary) medicine products as “based on pseudoscience” has failed.
The article is important to share, as complementary healthcare modalities are often maligned by many saying there is not enough science behind them. People who follow mainstream news have the impression that “scientific” medical research is remarkably valid and always progressing.
