For a more in-depth exploration of the wonderful world of Craniosacral we offer a course of eight weekends especially designed to make one feel like they can use and integrate the work into a practice. Our focus is on a combination of in-depth cranial anatomy, in-depth exploration of the internal subtle movements associated with our cranium and our whole body and treatment techniques utilizing these movements. In addition we will have a weekend focusing on whole body fascial relationships in the cranial context, with a look to structural assessment. Another weekend will give some basic coverage to the viscera and how to treat those oh-so-important organs. On the more exploratory side we will spend a weekend discussing trauma, birth and embryological development. Most of us have some history of intense experience that has shaped our body and mind and our clients can often use some insight into this. Toward the end of the program we focus on the more common conditions people may have that will benefit from Craniosacral work. So much can be done with a full anatomical understanding mixed with palpation skills and listening. We teach this class because we love the subject and the deep connection with human existence it allows. Come and deepen your ability to interact on this fundamental level.

Ethics

Trauma, Massage and Ethics

Many people don't understand how trauma affects the people around them, In order to more effectively and more ethically treat people with a history of trauma in their lives one can look into the causes, physiological processes and behavior tendencies of people with exposure to difficult events. Understanding and being able to intelligently and compassionately discuss how trauma affects us individually and as a general rule makes a working relationship more fruitful, safer and more ethical. We will spend four hours, first looking at the neurological and chemical aspects of trauma and then working with behaviors, and ways to work with those behaviors to the best end for all involved.

Students can submit paperwork for the Intraoral Endorsement with completion of this class.

Intro to Craniosacral

Explore the interesting world of our own internal rhythms with a look into Craniosacral therapy. We will discuss the anatomy of the majority of the cranial bones and sacrum, the meninges, especially the dura as well as the nervous system and the surrounding fluid. We will palpate the mysterious and healing movements of the above-mentioned structures with a variety of approaches from a more mechanical to a more ethereal perspective. Also included you will get some useful practice in client/practitioner boundaries. Come have fun and learn more about our amazing body and psyche. (TBA)
