Introduction to CranioSacral Therapy
Please click on the below icons for more information about this course.
Course Description: Craniosacral Therapy is built around the concept that we have craniosacral fluid that runs throughout our bodies. When balanced, the body finds homeostasis and runs like a well-tuned machine. When this fluid is out of balance, the result can be sickness, pain, and other maladies.Craniosacral Therapy focuses on healing. It works on many levels of human functioning, and the healing journey that ensues when the body and mind become entwined with that journey. This journey centers around the central nervous system and the factors that influence it.Craniosacral Therapy’s premise is that the Central Nervous System can be contacted, sensed, and worked with. The client is very involved in the healing process; as a result, clients are able to recognize their own responses to stimuli and how their vitality and inner resources are affected.Students will be exposed to the Breath of Life, which is the essence of health. Craniosacral Therapy teaches ways of connecting with that essence and working with it to attain healing. There are some psychodynamic factors in this modality; students who are interested in finding the links between mind, body, and healing will find this modality fascinating.Craniosacral Therapy has been known to help with many issues. Your clients may want to take a truly interactive approach to their healing processes; this modality encourages this. If you are looking for an innovative way to approach pain relief and healing with your clientele, this course is for you!
