The body is our ‘earth-suit’ and, along with our mind, the receptacle of our total life experiences. Our spirit is that which moves us…our vital force. In trauma, this body/mind/spirit continuum must be considered. The question “What am I really looking at?” is key in assessing each individual and devising the appropriate treatments. The whole person, their history, posture, gait, culture, environment, work, family and beliefs are all-important considerations in uncovering the source of pain.
Over the 36 hours of teaching we will:
- Present an overview of the anatomy and physiology of the architecture and function of the dural system and cranium.
- Explore concepts of osteopathy, theories of the heart and gut brains, the electromagnetic field (torus) and cellular memory.
- Have an in-depth discussion of trauma and injury and their difference.
You will learn techniques for:
- Measuring the cranium and other landmarks.
- A system of compression/decompression for the dural and nervous system.
- Releasing the cranial sutures.
- Palpating the cranial rhythm throughout the body
- Release of the muscles of the face, the throat, the neck.
- A nine-step procedure designed to open the cranial venous system and restore vitality.
This is a four-day ‘hands on’ intensive taught in a retreat setting. Due to the nature of the subject material and in order to provide adequate individual attention, the class size is limited to twelve. It is designed with professional health care workers in mind yet it can also accommodate those with an intense desire to learn.
Participants will learn effective techniques for treating concussions, head trauma, whiplashes, migraines, dizziness, nausea, balance issues, tinnitus, falls and impacts, tempero-maxilla joint problems, sequellae of MVAs, and more. The course includes a detailed illustrated manual, an excellent reference toolbox for techniques and related anatomy.
