CSIRAB: CSIR: Palpating and Treating the Abdomen: Anatomy, Palpation, Mapping, and Application of CST to Issues Caused by Inflammation in the Abdomen
CSIRAB August 17-20, 2023 Bellingham, Washington



This course will build on the information and techniques covered in the CranioSacral Therapy and Immune Response training, and will cover the physiology and pathology of chronic inflammation and the abdomen. The course will address craniosacral palpation of related pathologies, as well as strategies for treatment using our process-oriented CST approach. That is, rather than learning how to "fix" such conditions, you will gain insight into how to support the body's own self-corrective mechanisms so that the body itself can heal in those situations. In addition, participants will expand the boundaries of and greatly deepen the subtlety and specificity of their craniosacral palpation skills.

In the past, it was somewhat run down, but it has been remodeled and now seems to get good reviews.

If you prefer more luxurious accommodations, Tim suggests either the Hotel Bellwether or the Crysalis Inn & Spa . There are also several Bed and Breakfast places available in Bellingham.
