RNR Part 1 Brisbane 2023

5 August 2023 @ 8:00 am - 6 August 2023 @ 5:00 pm

$770.00 – $1,680.00

If you are keen to better understand early brain development and how it can affect us in life then this two-part course is for you.  Whether your patient is young or old, some basic procedures can be utilised to assist the integration of retained, or regained, neonatal reflexes. The ‘corrections’ are quick and easily included in your standard appointment schedule.

The full course is held over two weekends. Part 1 (5-6 August 2023) & Part 2 (9-10 September 2023) make up the course. Below you will see a few ticket options for registration. You can register for both Part 1 & 2 together or separately.  If you are choosing to register for Part 1 and Part 2 separately, you’ll find Part 2 tickets available in the September listing accessible via the Seminar Calendar page.

*Registration is an ideal next step for those practitioners proficient in muscle testing and cranial fault assessment and correction.

Dr Susan Walker and Dr Trent Banks will teach you how to:
๏ Perform structural corrections to assist RNR integration. Cranial and standard spinal adjusting methods are used.
๏ Identify and explain each of the retained neonatal reflexes
๏ Assess the neurology and biochemistry of the neurotransmitters associated with each RNR and give you the tools to test for and support your patients’ neurochemistry.

What is Included?

๏ Two comprehensive manuals covering 18 RNR procedures. The second manual will be given at Seminar 2 on the second weekend.
๏ Manual 1 & 2 are given at the respective seminars only to those attending
๏ Morning tea, lunch, & afternoon tea each day
๏ Online teaching resources for pre-seminar learning.

What is a retained neonatal reflex?

In the womb and in early life, when the decision making process has not fully developed, your brainstem has several reflexes called ‘primitive’ or ‘neonatal’ reflexes. They help you to grow properly and safely. For example, they help you in the birthing process, breast feeding and grasping on to things. As you mature these reflexes are no longer needed so they take a ‘back seat’ and the higher brain takes control. This is an essential and normal stage of your development, allowing you to perform the more complex tasks required in classroom learning, movement control and social interactions.

However, anything that interferes with normal neurodevelopment such as birth trauma and CNS inflammation may allow these reflexes to remain dominant. THIS IS A RETAINED NEONATAL REFLEX. This can result in your nervous system having an automatic and inappropriate response to normal day to day environmental stimuli. This is how retained neonatal reflexes can adversely affect your development, learning and behaviour.

Using specific RNR techniques founded by the late Dr Keith Keen DC, further developed by Australian Chiropractors and now taught all over the world, we can assist in the integration of these reflexes that could be holding bright children back.

  • *Registration is for those proficient in muscle testing and cranial fault assessment and correction. A background of Applied Kinesiology study is encouraged. Applied Kinesiology Certification (ie. having sat the AK exam) is NOT required.
  • ‘Refresher’ must have completed the full RNR course previously.
  • ‘Students’ will be asked to present current university student card.
  • Cancellations received in writing no later than 27 July 2023 for Part 1 or no later than August 31 2023 Part 2 will be given full refund of registration fee.
  • Late cancellations received between 28 July 2023 – 3 August 2023 for Part 1, and between 1-7 September 2023 for Part 2 will be reimbursed 70% of registration fee.
  • No shows or last minute cancellations received 48 hours prior to commencement of the seminars will be reimbursed 50% of the registration fee.
  • This two part program has been assessed by CAA (National) Ltd and allocated 31.75 Formal Learning Hours.
  • While this is a long awaited and highly anticipated course, if for some reason minimum number of attendees are not met, the course may be cancelled. We advise you to not make reservations without considering their cancellation policy prior to our confirmation of commencement, as we take no responsibility for loss of funds due to cancellation of accommodation and transport.
