Room E1180

This experiential course introduces Craniosacral Therapy through its history and philosophy along with an emphasis on foundational anatomy and physiology for the craniosacral system and connective tissue fascia. Lecture, demonstration, and practice techniques explore and treat joints, fascial diaphragms, and fluids. Techniques will utilize basic osteopathic principles pioneered by Dr. William Sutherland and introduced to therapists by Dr. John Upledger. In addition, this course teaches exercises in mindful attention with the goal of understanding embryological patterns for growth, health, and balance. Discovering palpable disturbances in core health patterns enable the therapist to identify root causes of dysfunction that arise through injury, trauma imprints, genetics, disease and other causes. Gentle, corrective Craniosacral Therapy techniques for the body are then introduced and practiced that dissipate pain while increasing range and function. Therapists will gain a foundational understanding of the history, philosophy, anatomy and physiology of the craniosacral system, utilizing this knowledge to practice a systematic, experiential approach to evaluate the craniosacral rhythm, its overall health, restrictions, and effects throughout the body. Therapists will develop listening skills to achieve autonomic connection and correction while performing techniques to assess and treat the vertical midline, pelvic, respiratory, thoracic, and cranial diaphragms, heart-C3 fulcrum, atlas occipital joint, and cerebrospinal fluid flow. Integration of techniques into existing practice will be discussed throughout the class.

Addressing the Face and Jaw with Craniosacral Therapy

Friday, Sept 13th and Saturday, Sept 14th

8:00am - 5:00pm (1 hour of lunch break each day)

This in depth, sixteen hour course, is one of three courses leading up to certification, and though it is labled "Level 3" levels 1 through 3 can be taken in any order, as they address different parts of the body, rather than building on top of one another in complexity. This course introduces Craniosacral Therapy through its history and philosophy with an emphasis on foundational anatomy and physiology for the cranial structures and craniosacral system. Demonstration and practical application of biomechanical techniques explore facial structures including bones, sutures, intracranial fascia, and fluids. In addition, this course teaches exercises in mindful attention with the goal of understanding original embryological patterns that provide the template for growth, health, and balance. Discovering palpable disturbances in core health patterns enable the therapist to identify root causes of dysfunction. Gentle, corrective Craniosacral Therapy techniques for the face, mouth, and jaw are then introduced and practiced that dissipate trauma imprints, decrease pain, and increase function. Therapists will gain a foundational understanding of the history, philosophy, anatomy and physiology of the craniosacral system, utilizing this knowledge to practice a systematic experiential approach to evaluate the craniosacral rhythm, its overall health, restrictions, and effects from face, mouth, and jaw structures. Through lecture, demonstration, and practical labs, therapists will develop listening skills to achieve autonomic connection and correction while performing techniques to assess and treat the cranial diaphragm, frontal and temporal bone compression, seven lesions of the sphenobasilar synchondrosis, mandible, and nasal bones. Intraoral techniques for the zygomas, maxilla, palatines, vomer, ethmoid, and teeth will also be demonst rated and practiced. Integration of techniques into existing practice will be discussed throughout the class.
