Prerequisite: Professional healthcare practitioner, student in healthcare program or graduate awaiting licensure/accreditation with experience in sensitive, light-touch palpation, successful attendance in CranioSacral Therapy 1 (CS1) and a thorough working knowledge of the 10-Step Protocol. Course participants typically include a variety of healthcare professionals, including massage therapists, acupuncturists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, speech therapists, athletic trainers, midwives, nurses and more.
Therapy 2 (CS2) greatly expands the work learned in CS1 and completes the
biomechanical CranioSacral Therapy training. The hands-on sessions will focus on cranial base dysfunctions, the masticatory system-hard palate, mandible and temporomandibular joint, whole body evaluation and the energy cyst with regional unwinding.
- Cranial-base dysfunctions as
assessed and treated by Dr. William Sutherland, the originator of Cranial
Osteopathy. These strain patterns
can produce profound full-body effects.
- Review of the 10-Step
- Adverse strain patterns of
the face, to include: nasal bones, zygomatic bones, maxillae, vomer, and
palatines. Stressful patterns of
the bony face can cause a myriad of issues related to the face, throat,
intracranial membrane system, the entire body and physiological systems.
- Arcing is an assessment
technique used to locate primary strain (lesion) patterns. Advanced CS practitioners use this
assessment technique most often for its accuracy and speed.
- Regional Positional Tissue
Release is used to locate body positions that are most helpful in
releasing lesion patterns. It is an
elegant and efficient treatment process.
- Facilitated Segments are
spinal cord areas that can cause debilitating issues. Using a process to locate these segments
and then treat them is essential to a CS protocol, especially when working
with clients experiencing chronic issues.
- Fascial Glide is an
assessment technique used to precisely locate fascial lesions. If more than one lesion is found then a
process of determining the primary lesion will be used.
- Discussion of adaptation of
CS technique for children.
- How to effectively integrate
techniques from CS1 and CS2 into treatment sessions of any length, or in
combination with other modalities.
- Discussion of SomatoEmotional
- Build the foundation to understand the craniosacral system and study techniques to effect change
- Discuss and describe the anatomy and physiology of the craniosacral system and its relationship to illness, pain and dysfunction
- Practice and refine your light-touch palpation skills to access subtle restrictions in the body by focusing on the cranium, sacrum, craniosacral rhythm and related soft tissue
- Evaluate and treat sphenobasilar lesions and bones of the hard palate as they relate to the craniosacral system
- Discuss application of craniosacral techniques for children
- Demonstrate and evaluate the fascial segments
- Demonstrate and evaluate arcing, fascial glide, dural tube and listening stations
- Demonstrate energy cysts, definitions, clinical significance
- Demonstrate regional tissue release
- Demonstrate facilitated segments
