Laynee Dynamic Functional Cranial Nerve Exam


Take your skill set to the next level by integrating the Autonomic Nervous System to improve your treatment outcomes.  Restoring breathing is the result of synchronized neurology.  By taking this course you will learn about the following concepts:

• Exploring the discovery process of brain mis-mapping

• Restorative breathing protocol for activation of all cranial nerves

• Restoring autonomic function as an essential baseline for success

Mastering the Dynamic Functional Cranial Nerve Assessment allows the practitioner to gather the data that creates a traditional baseline that looks beyond anatomy.  You will learn the implications of asymmetric cranial nerve function and how it can limit progress of treatment and the optimal care that we strive to achieve.  Discovering any mismapping in the brain that blocks the signal from the mouth to the brain allows the patient and the practitioner to overcome treatment obstacles and delays that can be both costly and frustrating.  

The Dynamic Functional Cranial Nerve Sequencing program supports balancing and integrating the Autonomic Nervous System.  The ANS or involuntary system is the foundation for health when balanced.  However, in a state of imbalance, dysfunction or disease can make treatment outcomes unpredictable and less than ideal.  Learning this method involves training in the baseline data collection with identifying dysfunction in the sequencing of the 12 cranial nerves and the oral developmental reflexes.


The Laynee Restorative Breathing series of courses has been endorsed by leaders in the airway awareness movement, sleep medicine physicians, osteopathic physicians, ALF Therapy dentists, TMJD dentists, orthodontists, human performance practitioners, preventive medicine clinicians, neurodevelopment, pain management, sports medicine, physical therapists, occupational therapists, orofacial myologists, oromyofunctional therapists, speech and language pathologists, psychologists, chiropractors, naturopathic physicians, acupuncturists, midwives, lactation specialists, doulas, ENT physicians, pulmonologist, Cranial Sacral Therapists and parents internationally.

Please join us in attending this program to learn a foundational method to improve not only your patient’s well-being but your own! 


Introduction to Dental Cranial Therapy

4pm-6pm  Lecture and Lab

Dr. John Laughlin will introduce the concepts of  Dental Cranial Therapy.  The goal of this elective is to allow the practitioner to begin to feel comfortable and effective at integrating cranial concepts in their critical role in providing  ALF Therapy.  This elective offers both lecture and hands-on opportunities for gaining familiarity with the dental cranial relationship.
