Basics of Cranial Sacral Massage I December 1, 2020
Instructor: Lin Roussel
Out of stock
This class offers the therapist a variety of ways to help enhance and polish a traditional massage, including techniques to gently assess the body, comfort and ground clients, based on many different teachings and philosophies.
This day includes a brief history of CranioSacral Therapy and its founders, Still, Sutherland and Upledger, a comparison of CranioSacral Therapy’s beginnings and what we know today, as well as different ways we can use soft, gentle techniques as opposed to deep and invasive modalities to physically and energetically help improve our clients’ relaxation and pain management.
This is a ¾ day of demo and hands-on practice. Students should bring 2 flat sheets, dress comfortably and bring or wear socks.
*This is not an Upledger Cranio Sacral class, though some hands-on techniques may be similar to Upledger’s, and some holds may mimic those in the practice of Reiki. The techniques are taught for comfort and relaxation only, and the notion that we can move cranial bones, feel/stop/start cerebral spinal fluid, feel “restrictions”, diagnose disease and disorder, feel and absorb energy, read peoples thoughts and minds, and treat trauma is not taught or supported in this class.
