Event Description

This advanced class begins with a brief overview of the first level and then moves on into finding, evaluating, treating and re-evaluating areas of restriction that have created dysfunction within the cranial system. Students will learn advanced techniques to work with areas located at or around primary cranial nerves, sphenobasilar junction, ears, eyes, nose, temporomandibular joint, mandible, throat and hard palate. Class covers different ways to locate and release physical and emotional tension in order to assist the body to return to a natural balance.  Students taking this level of training and advancing their skill level have found to be more in demand for this work.

Craniosacral Therapy

While there are many different approaches to the practice, all forms of Craniosacral Therapy (also called CST or cranialsacral therapy) are designed to promote a healthy central nervous system. The modality uses a light touch and can be performed while your client is fully clothed. Craniosacral therapy sessions are typically a stand-alone service.

The idea of manipulating cranial bones, spine, neck and sacrum or the flow of cerebrospinal fluid forms the foundation of most craniosacral therapy CE classes. However, some are based on the idea of essential energy pathways that run through the body. Courses in SomatoEmotional Release (SER), which uses the techniques of craniosacral therapy to help patients recover from negative emotions and trauma, are also available from some craniosacral therapy education providers.
