CSIREX: CSIR: Palpating and Treating the Extremities: Anatomy, Palpation, Mapping, and Application of CST to Issues Caused by Inflammation in the Extremities
CSIREX-V October 14-17, 2021 Virtual Pacific Time (San Francisco)

Teacher/Presenter:

This course will build on the information and techniques covered in the CranioSacral Therapy and Immune Response training.  

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.
 

Description:
The major focus of this class is learning how to address traumatic injury, arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions of the arms and hands, legs and feet. Like the other upper level classes in this series, this course builds upon the information and techniques covered in the CranioSacral Therapy and Immune Response training.

As human beings we use our arms and legs constantly and injuries to the extremities are quite common. In addition, there are many chronic inflammatory conditions that affect the extremities. The role of the immune system in such issues is often overlooked, but as is true for other areas of the body if symptoms are present, the immune system is involved. It is critical that we as CranioSacral therapists be able to address this important and subtle system of the body.

In this class, students learn to palpate all the various structures in the extremities – skin, muscles, bones, joints, arteries and veins, nerves, lymph, etc., determine if there are restrictions or inflammation present in those structures, and learn to address and treat those issues using our process-oriented CST approach. That is, rather than learning how to "fix" such conditions and suppress the symptoms, students 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.

Due to the on-line format in which this class will be taught, all practice session will involve palpating and treating yourself, not a partner. This has the advantage of improving your skills at self-treatment and evaluation. The skills you develop doing this self-palpation will be immediately applicable to the treatment of your clients.

YOU WILL BE PROVIDED THE ON-LINE ACCESS INFORMATION 5-6 DAYS PRIOR TO THE COURSE. Please respect the integrity of the work and the program, and the privacy of participants and presenter/s. No still or video screen captures are permitted during this program.
