Confidence. Certainty. Simplicity.
THREE trailblazers are coming together for ONE purpose: Dr. Monika Buerger, Dr. Elizabeth Mumper, & Dr. Scott Siegel
This impactful seminar will cover modern-day chemical, physical and emotional stressors and their effects on the developing nervous system and WHY this is considered to be the Neurobiology of Disease.
The First 1,000 Days! From preconception to prenatal to preterm to postnatal to polyvagal, we will dive into WHAT you can do to support the developing nervous system. We will take a close look at how parental stressors and nutritional status are passed down via intergenerational mechanisms and can affect epigenetic loads and genetic expression.

Coming Fall 2024!
The area of tethered oral tissues (TOTS) has taken the world by storm over the past few years. Dr. Buerger has been putting the pieces together and teaching about TOTS from a neuro-focused lens for the past decade!
The research has been pouring in with regards to fascial tension and the effects on the nervous system and brain function. And, as always, Dr. Buerger has been diving into all of it and is preparing to share it in this AMAZING certification course. From vertebral subluxations, to tethered oral restrictions, to chronic pain and neurodevelopmental considerations, the course will tie together the broad implications for these “tethered roots” and nervous system function.
This course will also bring you Brain Building, Bonding, and Breastfeeding through the lens of Polyvagal Principles and neuromotor function of the tongue. It will also explore postural control, forward head posture, feeding, and the “picky eater”. Evaluation and management considerations for easy implementation will also be addressed.
Current research trends as to the “cause” of TOTS will be explored as well.
Are These CE Classes for YOU?
Our classes are packed with usable and pertinent information for chiropractors and chiropractic students to help them understand and manage the ever-increasing loads of stress posed upon individuals in the modern-day world. The information in our classes will set you apart from other practitioners in your community as the ‘go-to’ for those that have not achieved results from other modes of care.
8 hours CE Credits!
Fostering Optimal Neurodevelopment
Primitive reflexes should be integrated by no later than the first year of life. Dr. Buerger will cover how to evaluate primitive and postural reflexes in the older child (ages 4 and up). She will also demonstrate specific integration maneuvers and specific exercises that can be applied for each reflex should they remain active. Because each child’s functional capacity is different, she will also address how to modify/adapt these depending on the ability of the child. She will also discuss the important role that chiropractic care has on the integration of primitive reflexes, the development of postural reflexes and the development of the sensory-motor systems.
This course is packed full of critical information that can change the tide on a child’s health, development and success in life!
9 hours CE Credits!
The Ties That Bind
It’s NOT just about breastfeeding or speech, it’s about maximizing human POTENTIAL! Chiropractors and other practitioners all across the world are seeing more babies/children with tethered oral tissues (TOTs). These fascial restrictions are wreaking havoc on spinal and cranial structures. If not addressed, these restrictions can lead to chronic subluxation patterns as well as neurological stress and abnormal sensory-motor development.
This course will cover all aspects to consider when it comes to tethered oral tissues: potential reasons for increased number of cases, biochemical pathways, toxic stressors and nutritional deficits linked with TOTs, spinal and cranial biomechanical insults as the result of TOTs, and sensory-motor dysfunction and neurophysiological ramifications associated with TOTs. Assessment and identification of TOTs, spinal adjustments, cranial-sacral care and myofascial techniques to help manage these cases will all be covered.
8 hours CE Credits!
Derailed: The Hijacking of our Children’s Neurodevelopment
With the ever increasing rise in neurodevelopmental disorders and childhood illnesses, it is important that the Doctor of Chiropractic working with children have an understanding of the multitude of factors that can be attributed to this epidemic. In addition, they should be well versed in various stressors that can potentially disrupt optimal neurodevelopment and have concrete tools to help cultivate a preventative approach using the philosophy of a chiropractic lifestyle. They should also be aware of atypical development patterns in the first year of life that can alter the trajectory of neurodevelopment- potentially leading to physical and/or mental illness later in life.
6 hours CE Credits!
Mastering Heart Rate Variability and Vagal Tone
What is Heart Rate Variability? What is the BEST way to measure it? What is the connection between heart rate variability and chiropractic? How can I implement the use of heart rate variability into my practice?

Chiropractic, Colic and the Microbiome of Children
Recent years of research has shown that there is a connection between the gut and the brain. This bi-directional axis is the core of our physical and mental health. The integrity of the microbiome of the mother (MOM) and the microbiome of the baby (MOB) have a profound impact on neurodevelopment as well as the neurobiology of disease.
In this fascinating course, Drs. Haavik and Buerger will walk you through this incredibly important topic using science, application and communication from a chiropractic approach. They will give you hands-on tangible information to implement into your everyday practice care plans as well as how to communicate an effective science based message to your community.
