Introduction to Craniosacral Therapy (16 hour version)
Join us for two days that could change your life! Here is an opportunity to sample the Upledger Institute’s Craniosacral Therapy course studied by more than 90,000 healthcare practitioners worldwide. This mix of lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice will teach you the benefits of CST along with basic techniques you can use in massage therapy practice and for your own health. The Polarity Healthcare version is the Upledger Craniosacral Therapy Introduction class expanded to 16 CE hours.
Please know that this class is much more than an introduction to a particular technique. You will develop and/or refine your light-touch palpation skills by learning how to palpate and evaluate the craniosacral rhythm, a subtle physiological movement affecting the entire body. You will also learn how to locate subtle restrictions in the connective tissue system and correct those restrictions using gentle myofascial techniques. Most important of all, you will learn to follow the body’s inner wisdom rather than always trying to control or direct it. The concepts and skills from this class can transform your practice and your life.
