CranioSacral Therapy 2
4 days Seminar
The course begins with the study of cranial base dysfunctions as perceived, diagnosed and treated by Dr William Sutherland, the father of cranial osteopathy.
You learn how to integrate Sutherland’s techniques into the “10-step protocol” and how to apply individual correction when needed.
Evaluation and treatment via the bones of the face and hard palate, the mandible and temporomandibular joint are presented and practised to complete the exploration of the masticatory system.
You can expect to take away with you skills to localise and correct motion distortions of the spheno-palatino-vomero-maxillary complex and restrictions of the teeth. You should be able to evaluate general vitality, motivation, emotional status and biochemical dysfunction using the craniosacral rhythm. You will have been shown how to adapt techniques for use with babies and young children, and introduced to the principles of facilitating SomatoEmotional Release®.
