Holistic Practictioners We Love!: Dr. Martin Rosen

My intention is for this to be the first of many  “Holistic Practitioners We Love!” posts.  If you have a holistic practitioner that you and your family love!, please send me a comment or an email so we can get the word out about him or her!!

Dr. Martin Rosen is a chiropractor at the Wellesley Chiropractic Office, located in Wellesley, Massachusetts.  Many, many, many thanks to my dear friend (and Dr. Rosen’s patient!) Andrea for the introduction.

Why We Love! Dr. Martin Rosen

One of the many reasons why we love! him is that he has had a great deal of experience – and success! – over the years with the Webster Technique.  The Webster Technique is a chiropractic technique used to turn breech babies.  In her article entitled, “Alternative Medicine Can Turn Breech Babies”, Julie Brill reported that, “Dr. Martin Rosen, a chiropractor in Wellesley, Massachusetts has only had one case where the baby did not turn in twenty years of practice. He states “it‘s a non-invasive procedure and when applied correctly has no negative side effects.” It involves an evaluation, gentle contact on a ligament near the tailbone, then gentle thumb contact on the abdomen. It takes five minutes and usually needs to be applied one to three times. Rosen adds, “When dealing with breech pregnancies it is important that all options be considered before more drastic measures are necessary. The Webster Technique is a non-invasive, safe, and reliable alternative.””

Patient Testimonial

Andrea, a patient and huge fan of Dr. Rosen, writes, “Not all patients respond to conventional treatments, just like not all respond to alternative treatments.  When it came to giving birth, conventional methods just didn’t work for me.  Yes, with my first breech pregnancy I grew two beautiful, very healthy girls, but the cesarean recovery was no walk in the park.  And let me tell you, when Mamma isn’t doing well, it makes things much rougher for the newborns than it needs to be!  Many forget that it’s a delicate balance.  Then came the second breech baby and I just knew there had to be a better way.  It took a lot of work, but I found it:  Dr.  Martin Rose.  I had a really hard time finding anyone that would perform the (Webster) technique for me and most chiro’s told me straight up (without seeing me) that it was a difficult thing to do and they weren’t willing to practice with me.  However, I thank my lucky stars that I found the guy who practically wrote the book on turning breech babies!  It was only while I was waiting for the first treatment I found out he has ~90% success rate, including turning twins.  Boy, do I wish I found him sooner!  Needless to say, consumers really need to realize what is available to them and be open to different approaches.  Otherwise, with the failed external version, it would have been another surgery for us and I/ we would have been miserable… again.  Instead, I had an amazing experience with my second birth and it makes me sad to think that if I took my first OB’s advice, I would have been deprived of that beautiful experience!”
