Lynn Van Norman will be presenting The Berry Method.

The Berry Method, developed by Lauren Berry, is a unique, corrective technique, utilizing muscle, ligament, or organ positioning.

With trauma, tissues such as ligaments or muscle can become displaced (for example, the medial collateral ligament of the knee shifting because of a twisting fall). While rubbing the area might loosen it and cause it to feel better for a while, it would still remain out of position, thus making the knee unstable and prone to further damage. By shifting the ligament back into place, proper mechanics is restored, sometimes immediately.

Similar work done very gently can also be applied to the visceral organs, such as a dropped bladder. Lauren believed the body had a memory and, with a little encouragement, body organs would want to return to their proper place in the whole of the organism.

The meeting will be from 6:30 - 8:30 pm and participants are eligible for 2 hours of CEU's. Anyone can attend the meeting for free, however, to receive the CEU's there is a $5 fee for OMTA members and a $10 fee for nonmembers. Remember to bring cash or a check! We cannot accept credit cards at this time.

We try to end the meeting at
8:30 pm and then have a period of time to network when we are done presenting.
Due to budget constraints, we will NOT be offering complimentary snacks. Please feel free to bring your own snacks/dinner with you.
We are located in Lane's New Downtown Center across from the public library at 101 W. 10 Street. We will be meeting in room 105.
