This class is a 3.5-day class covering cranial sacral concepts and basic techniques for the whole body and cranium. What is the cranial sacral system? It is the peaceful part of the autonomic nervous system, the parasympathetic branch that balances the sympathetic branch. These two systems control rest/digest and fight/flight conditions respectively.

In this busy world we are governed by our sympathetics and constantly acting as though we are running from the sabertooth tiger with the simplest of tasks. This is supposed to be balanced out by the peaceful parasympathetic system, a system ignored and neglected.

What nerves run this system? Nerves coming from the head/cranium and the pelvis/sacrum. This is the essence of cranial sacral therapy.

Learning how to work on the cranium and sacrum can balance the autonomic nervous system, modulate the excesses of our modern world and soften the impact of over thinking and over doing; these are the stresses that exhaust the sympathetic/adrenal system and overwhelm out ability to rest & relax/parasympathetic.

This class teaches you basic cranial and meningeal anatomy, the impact of the cerebrospinal fluid fow throughout the body, and some very effective, gentle manual techniques to treat the system.  There will be extensive hands-on experience and supervision, so that you can go from this class to offering basic cranio-sacral work to your clients.
