Have you ever wanted to learn Cranial Sacral techniques similar to those created by Upledger, Barns, Sullivan, and other pioneers of Cranial Sacral Therapy and incorporate them into your massage? If so, this is the class for you!

Cranial Sacral Massage techniques are gentle, flowing hand-holds and movements done on a clothed individual. These techniques are used to assess the body and release “restrictions”, or trauma, which are thought to be trapped in the cerebral spinal fluid, fascia, and central nervous system (CNS) which may be causing disease, disorder, or illness. This modality is also used to promote relaxation and homeostasis throughout the entire body. It has been said that there is no disconnect between the body and mind and that sickness or discomfort may be caused by stress and/or unresolved trauma trapped in the body. Cranial Sacral Massage can help the client “feel” what physical and emotional issues have not been resolved within their body-mind, and with the help of the trained CST professional are many times able to release the trauma and manage the physical and emotional symptoms of illness, disorder, disease, and injury.

Basics of Cranial Sacral Massage l is an introductory class that covers different Cranial Sacral Therapy theories and explanations, as well as emotional release and the mind-body connection. The lecture part takes up about 85% of the class time, and the hands-on part of the class will cover the Three Comfort Holds and a Full Body Assessment.

Please wear comfortable, loose clothing to this class (pants, but no jeans, or shorts, skirt, capris or dress), and wear (or bring) socks. You will be asked to remove your belt as well. Bring a flat sheet and make sure your fingernails are short. Bring writing materials.
