Whether your patients are suffering from acute or chronic pain, craniosacral therapy can help. Craniosacral therapy uses very light pressure to detect restrictions and restore balance to the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system is made up of the dural membrane that covers the brain & spinal cord and the cerebrospinal fluid contained inside. It has been described as the deepest layer of the fascia. Like fascia, restrictions in the craniosacral system can cause pain and dysfunction and compromise the performance of the musculoskeletal and neurological systems surrounding it. Craniosacral therapy is an effective treatment modality for head, neck & back pain, including post-concussion syndrome, migraines & headaches, acute & chronic neck & back pain, sacroiliac joint dysfunction and much more. You will be able to incorporate these techniques into your massage sessions or use them separately. This course will give you an excellent background for further craniosacral training.
