Cranial Sacral Therapy for the Entire Cranial Base & Parietals
May 20, 2017 @ 9:00 am - May 21, 2017 @ 5:00 pm$275
Did you know that you have five extremities and not just four? Our head can be thought of as the fifth extremity, and its joints (called sutures) need to be mobile for optimal health and wellness. These sutures can be the source, or lead us to the root, of dysfunction and patient complaints. In this practical 14 contact hour course, Joe will take the mystery and mysticism out of cranial sacral technique and explain it in a manner which is easy to grasp and immediately applicable in attendees’ clinical environments. This course will introduce the philosophy of osteopathic manual therapy and examine in-depth the cranial-sacral system and the role it has in neurophysiology, biomechanics, patient symptomatology and illness. Joe will share the musculoskeletal system’s role in health and illness as well as the true value of a symptom. Through lecture (PowerPoint presentation), complete course manual, skull models and bones, demonstration of techniques, patient histories and supervised hands-on practice, we will explore each of the bones and sutures of the cranial base (occiput, temporals, sphenoid) and the parietals. Time will be taken to explain the influence these bones have on intracranial structures and why this is so very important to the clients you serve. We will experience what normal movement is for each bone and identify and release the key restriction within these structures. Begin to explore this fascinating manual therapy technique and expand your understanding on how structure, energy and emotions can influence function, symptoms and illness. This class is appropriate for all levels of experience, from beginner to advanced.
