CRANIOSACRAL BASICS: an introduction

Craniosacral Therapy is a holistic healing practice combining sensitive hands – on bodywork with the meditative use of the inner eye and inner ear. It is through light touch that the practitioner is able to feel subtle patterns of motion within the body – rhythms, pulls, pulsations – emanating from deep within the core structures of the body. By gently facilitating the subtle unwinding of these deep structures within the body, the Craniosacral therapist can enable the release of Craniosacral restrictions. Release at these profound regulatory levels in turn enables the release of disease conditions throughout the body.

In this one-day (sometimes 2 day) class, you will:

  • learn what Craniosacral Therapy is. (I will present a simplified version of the anatomy and physiology of the craniosacral system)
  • discover how to recognize the rhythm of the craniosacral system
  • learn basic craniosacral techniques to relieve pain and promote relaxation
  • receive hands-on instruction in craniosacral techniques that you can use on your family, friends or patients
  • experience your innate ability to provide healing energy to others and yourself.

This class is open to anyone who is interested in learning the fundamentals of Craniosacral Therapy.
