The Craniosacral Connection:
An Overview of Craniosacral Therapy

The Craniosacral Connection is a mix of lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice designed to teach you the benefits of craniosacral therapy along with powerful techniques you can use in massage therapy practice and for your own health.
