Craniosacral techniques are safe and easy to use. Craniosacral therapy brings balance and improves health by working with the structures around the central nervous system (i.e., bones of the spine and skull), as well as the fascia system (the continuous membrane throughout our entire body). Learn how to feel the craniosacral rhythm that permeates all parts of the body, and use techniques to work with muscles, joints, arms and legs, as well as several key areas in the abdomen and chest. This class has been created due to the numerous requests from those who wish to use these techniques with friends and family, but who aren’t eligible to take our craniosacral courses offered to health practitioners.
