We live in a world that constantly challenges our bodies and our nervous systems. We have daily psychological, social, environmental, biological, and lifestyle challenges. Over time, these challenges can diminish our innate capacity for healing, self-regulation, and even our sense of being able to stay on top of our daily lives. Cycles of depletion get started which are difficult to reverse and compound one another. Reversing the depletion process and rebuilding our resiliency is a critical endeavor for our lives.
CranioSacral therapy is a gentle, noninvasive, hands-on technique to help detect and correct imbalances in the craniosacral system that may cause sensory, motor, or intellectual dysfunction. It is used to treat a myriad of health problems, including headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ dysfunction, chronic fatigue, motor coordination difficulties, eye problems, endogenous depression, hyperactivity, and central nervous system disorders.
CranioSacral Therapy 2 studies cranial-base dysfunctions as diagnosed and treated by Dr. William Sutherland, the “father” of cranial osteopathy. The course material and hands-on sessions will focus on cranial-base dysfunctions, the masticatory system-hard palate, mandible and temporomandibular joint; whole body evaluation; and the energy cyst with regional unwinding. An introduction to SomatoEmotional Release will also be presented.
The prerequisite for this course is Upledger’s Institute CranioSacral Therapy 1 (CS1) and thorough working knowledge of the 10-Step Protocol.
