Kingston, PA  18704 About the Instructor:
Dr. Richard Cohen, the first native English speaking practitioner certified by
the International Vojta Society and the only one on the East Coast, has
developed a program to help chiropractors and other manual therapists
appreciate how the principles of movement development can be used in the
analysis of the pain patient or the patient with movement disorders. This
program will help attendees understand the principles of movement
development and how these principles change our view of the musculoskeletal
system and its role in movement. Your appreciation of movement and muscle
function will be enhanced and changed by your attendance at this program.Read what past participants have said: “Thank you for a great seminar.  The information was excellent and at a very high level.  I feel much more confident about my Vojta abilities now and also have a greater understanding of how to use different positions to treat certain problems.”    Jeff Remsburg

“I think that the weekend I spent with you was a huge turning point in my ability to apply the principles to all my treatments.  It was as if a light was turned on in my brain and I can see things better.”  Gary Bowman, Illinois Spinal and Sports Rehabilitation

“I think the layout and content of the seminar is the missing link in the fundamental understanding of developmental kinesiology.”  Vice Lujan

“The course and attention to the hands on applications helped not only to reinforce what I learned in other courses but it took my understanding to another level.”  Leon Aibinder, D.C., New York, NY

“Before this seminar I was intimidated by how difficult to understand the Vojta/Reflex Locomotion technique seemed to be.  Dr. Cohen’s clear explanation and demonstration along with his clinical applications made the technique not only straight forward but a welcome and immediately useful addition to my tool box.”  Steve Henderson, D.C., Kansas City, MO.

“This class is a must for any practitioner wishing to restore normal movement patterns and functionality in their patients.  It has opened my eyes to a whole different level of treatment- a subconscious, involuntary level.”   Kerri Nelson, D.C., Atco, NJ

“Dr. Cohen presents Vojta/Reflex Locomotion in a simplified and easy to learn set of steps and procedures.  It is easy for someone new to Vojta to pick up the basics and implement them into practice.  The hands on time and one-on-one attention we received allowed us to feel and see the effects of the therapy first hand which made a big impression on me.  I would definitely take another seminar by Dr. Cohen and would recommend this seminar to other doctors of chiropractic.”  Richard Strunk, D.C., Kansas City, MO.
