Hayward, CA US
December 8, 2018

The “Hole In One” technique, also known as Toggle Recoil remains a mainstay in the realm of upper cervical chiropractic. As a standalone technique it provides the practitioner with a classic set of tools with which to address complex patient presentations. For many, Toggle Recoil is also a foundational stepping stone into learning other upper cervical techniques. In either case, it requires significant attention to detail from line analysis, instrumentation, postural assessment, and delivery of an adjustment with precision and intent.

Toggle Recoil is a timeless technique that has been respectfully ushered into modern day with an ongoing regard for the necessary attention to details. This 6-hour weekend will review critical aspects of the analysis and discipline needed for Toggle Recoil care. Attendees with walk away with a renewed excitement for the power of that one perfect adjustment.
