how do you do sub occipital release? you're just supposed to push straight up, right??? That's the only way I've seen it done, so I'm just making sure Im not doing it wrong.

I hated OMM, but I actually taught this to my wife for when I get headaches -- it's been a lifesaver for me. I imagine I'll teach it to many patients in the future.

I have no idea, I just let the body talk to me and tell me what it wants. Just wait and breath. When the sinus says "okay, I'm ready" I guide her into gentle release. Doesn't everyone get that OMM is a humanistic device which requires empathy just like any other form of holistic tx?

Dean of DO school: So what qualifies you to be the new head of the OMM department?
