Pre-requisite Workshop(s): Experience with sensitive, light-touch palpation, and palpation of the craniosacral rhythm. It is expected you have a working knowledge of this anatomy: cranial bones, sutures and intracranial membranes.


In this course, you will study the three primary areas of trauma as they relate to whiplash: physical laws, evaluation and treatment. The instructor will present appropriate lecture, demonstration, and supervised hands-on lab sessions addressing such topics as restrictions in the meningeal system; soft tissues of the cervical and cervicobrachial regions; and the lumbosacral region.

You will obtain maximum benefit from the class if you have a working knowledge of cranial bones, sutures and intracranial membranes. A few sample questions you should be able to answer are:

1. The coronal suture is between what 2 bones?
2. The occipito-mastoid suture/jugular foramen is between what 2 bones?
3. The falx cerebri is predominately (or mostly) under what suture?
4. The attachments of the tentorium cerebelli are:
a. frontal bone, petrouss part of temporal bone, occiput
b. occiput, parietal, temporal, bones, anterior and posterior clinoid processes of sphenoid bone
c. occiput, parietal and temporal bones, maxilla

Advance Preparation: To prepare for the course we suggest that you read:

Supplies: PLEASE BRING A MASSAGE/TREATMENT TABLE. Due to liability issues, meeting sites may not allow banquet tables to be used as treatment tables. Additionally, treatment tables provide a safer and more comfortable environment for the lab portion of class. We understand some travel may not make massage/treatment table transport possible – when you receive an email from us asking about massage/treatment tables, please simply reply accordingly.

AFTER you sign in and pick-up your name tag at the seminar, set your massage/treatment table in front of the pre-set chairs in the meeting room.

Attire: Comfortable, loose fitting clothes. As many of these manipulations require an exposed abdominal cavity, we encourage you to bring a bath towel, clothing suitable for skin contact (lab clothes), and appropriate undergarments so that you are comfortable if they are exposed during the lab sessions. During trades you may be in varied stages of undress, but during lecture time and in common areas of the meeting site outside of the classroom, please return to a fully clothed professional appearance. Due to potential chemical sensitivities of your classmates, please refrain from wearing perfumes or oils to class. Due to the nature of the work, short finger nails are required.
