Superior Oblique Muscle and Brown’s Syndrome  ~ Kaden’s Story

This is Kaden’s story about the Superior Oblique Muscle, Brown’s Syndrome Symptoms and how we balanced his eye’s.

February 22, 2015

“Our son, Kaden, was complaining of double vision and headaches for a few months before he was diagnosed with Brown’s Syndrome. The Pediatric, Strabismus, Neuro and General Ophthalmologist specialist he was seeing recommended a wait and see approach and then eye surgery if his symptoms didn’t worsen in 6 months.

We as parents could not wait and watch our otherwise healthy and happy child suffer from debilitating headaches for 6 months! Kaden’s behavior was changing, his patience was running low, he was acting out at school, and unfortunately his little sister was getting the brunt of his frustration.

We also wanted to find a more natural approach to help our son. After hours on google and forums researching Brown’s Syndrome and ways to cope we found Felisa Holmberg. Her previous success with Brown’s Syndrome gave us hope and we quickly set up an appointment to meet. Felisa was so helpful and reassuring during our communication before our first meeting letting us know what to expect and making Kaden feel at ease.

When our son met Felisa he warmed right up to her open demeanor and quickly settled in for the session. He felt relaxed and comfortable, able to remain focused and in the moment for the entire 1.5 hour session. During the appointment Kaden had many reflex like movements going on that he would not normally do. Felisa later explained that his body was adjusting to the tension being released in his brain. Kaden left the appointment in good spirits and feeling bright.

During the week to come we noticed changes in his eye movement. He could now look up with full range of motion in both eyes though it still hurt. He seemed happier and no longer complained of headaches, his relationship with his sister was on the mend and his teachers noticed that he had much more patience and focus at school. It has been a few weeks since the appointment now and I am now noticing that he has full range of motion in both eyes and is not complaining of any pain. His energy levels are amazing and he is back to all of his extra curricular activities with no problems.

We will be seeing Felisa again to continue her work with Kaden and look forward to more success.”

3/3/15 UPDATE:

“We had our checkup yesterday and the doctors were shocked at how much better his eyes are!! Kaden did amazing with every test they gave him. I hope this helps you get the word out. I told the doctors what you have done for him but she seemed uninterested and said it was probably the Advil. It’s a shame they are not more open to natural healing. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. I have just put the paperwork in to update our passports and then we will be coming down for another visit. Looking forward to seeing you again.” Stephanie and Matt
