Cranio-Sacral Therapy is an Osteopathic technique in which gentle manipulation of the cranial bones and the “Cranial Rhythm” are used to balance and regulate the body. In many ways Cranio-Sacral Therapy is an extension of Qi Gong, Chinese Tui Na and Bone-Setting, and energy work. It is often the therapy of choice for head injuries, TMJ, trauma from dental surgery and many kinds of bony and membranous restrictions that affect brain and spinal function.
This class covers the key aspects of Cranio-Sacral Therapy in an hands-on course aimed at producing clinical skills that are immediately practical in a clinical setting. Students will learn a basic 12-Step Sequence for assessing and treating the movement of the Eight Cranial Bones. They will also learn how to work with the facial bones, teeth and hard palate. Connections will be made between Cranio-Sacral work and theories of traditional Chinese medicine. Relationships to acupuncture points and Tui Na techniques will also be discussed.
Your instructor, Tom Bisio has 30 years of clinical experience using Cranio-Sacral Therapy in conjunction with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
