Course Details
In this three-day craniosacral therapy class, we deepen our awareness of the innate ability of the body to heal itself. We explore the notion that the body has an inner voice and can express itself–and that the awareness of this expression can be used as a therapeutic tool. The student will learn how to palpate fluctuations in the craniosacral rhythm that reflect the body’s self-correcting mechanisms.

New skills offered will include direct communication with the inner wisdom through dialogue, listening and palpation of changes in the craniosacral rhythm and the tissues. Techniques to facilitate mobility of the tissues of the “Avenue of Expression” (as described by John Upledger) will be taught to assist the communication process.

Recognizing and honoring the patient’s biological process and the ability of the body to express itself will be central themes of this class.
