Course Description: This 2 day lab-intensive, introductory course includes concepts and techniques for assessment and treatment of the tissues & structures associated with the central nervous system, including the hard and soft tissues (osseous, suture, joint, membrane) related to the cranial system. Comprehensive palpation and assessment of the CRI (cranial rhythmic impulse / craniosacral rhythm) is presented. This course covers suture and join restrictions and treatment of the cranial and facial vaults, including the TMJ; the sphenobasilar joint and cranial and facial articulations; osseous dysfunctions and treatment of the cranial and facial vaults; and dura mater restrictions and treatment.
This exciting and unique content which is presented in The Cranial Therapy Series is integrative for all professionals, all health care disciplines, and all client populations. The material will provide a solution for headache, spinal pain and disability, chronic pain, cerebral palsy, closed and traumatic brain injury, and all other orthopedic and neurologic related client populations. The physical and occupational therapist can restore movement and functional activities; the speech therapist can address speech, swallowing and oral-motor function; the body worker will improve health and wellness for better living.
