Larry VanBloem

Larry VanBloem practiced outside of Salt Lake City at the Cascade Center. He and his associate Jeannie Murdock Gwilliam faced charges of gross incompetence and gross negligence before Utah's State Department of Professional Licensing. The petition to the board states that VanBloem uses "compression holding therapy" in which he lies on top of the child and "uses his body weight to compress the child client's chest and, thereby, to restrict the child's breathing, promote fear and induce "belly breathing" and that "children attempt to resist these procedures by kicking, sobbing,, screaming and biting." (Petition, 2002)

Larry VanBloem was killed in a car crash December 10, 2004
