Upledger Institute International’s CranioSacral Therapy Level One Intensive: Presence, Palpation and Protocol

Mar 11 - Apr 08, 2018 Begins in 2 weeks
with Karen Axelrod

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) utilizes very gentle touch to assess and correct imbalances in the craniosacral system – the membranes and fluids protecting the brain and spinal cord. CST is a powerful hands-on modality that addresses numerous sensory, motor, and intellectual challenges; central nervous system disorders; and chronic pain. Participants will be taught detailed anatomy and physiology of the craniosacral system, its functions in health, and its relationship to disease.
