In this workshop you'll learn gentle techniques to normalize the craniosacral system and allow the body to self-correct. By unraveling pain and dysfunction at the source, you'll naturally help eliminate stress, strengthen resistance to disease, and enhance health in every dimension. 

Course Highlights: By the end of this 4-day workshop you should be able to:

• Describe the scientific foundation and principles of CranioSacral Therapy - and why it's the key to relieving pain and dysfunction at their source
• Demonstrate finely tuned palpation skills you can rely on as highly sensitive and intuitive healthcare tools
• Identify the subtle craniosacral rhythm and interpret its patterns to accurately evaluate dysfunction and improvements
• Locate the source of physical problems by traveling through the fascial system, that complex web of tissue that impacts all body structures and systems
• Release dural tube restrictions to enhance interactions between the central nervous system and the rest of the body
• Use techniques that produce dramatic health and relaxation effects, including Direction of Energy and Still-Point Induction
• Work with approaches to a number of common ailments such as TMJ dysfunction, head and neck pain, central nervous system disorders and many more
• Put a simple, effective 10-Step Protocol into practice right away
