Craniosacral Therapy 1-2 (Elective)
This two (2) course sequence is designed as an introduction to the theory and practice of craniosacral therapy. The name is derived from the bones involved. Included are all bones of the cranium and sacrum as well as the associated facial network. The concept is based on the physiological principle that the flow of fluid within the body is important in health, that the body possesses its own inherent healing capacity, and that structure and function are directly related to one another in health and disease. The rhythm of the craniosacral system is palpable as are the vascular and respiratory systems. Methods for evaluation and treatment of the entire body are described, observed and practiced. Palpatory skills are learned and developed. The student leaves with a ten step protocol for therapeutic application. Craniosacral 2 is recommended to deepen the therapeutic application of the technique. 100% attendance is required, with practice time out of class.
