Craniosacral Training in Colorado Springs 2013-New Dates

Join us in 2013 for Craniosacral Training in Colorado Springs, CO with Dr Faith Christensen and Dr Allison Nabours.

Craniosacral Therapy started in the osteopathic community in the early 1900’s as a way to feel restrictions in the cranial bones and fascia. By freeing the cranial bones and the fascia, the practitioner is able to assist the body in regaining normal function in the nervous, lymph, hormonal, myofascial, and gastrointestinal system. Craniosacral Therapy is a whole person therapy focusing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Craniosacral therapy is founded on the belief that the body knows exactly how to heal. The role of the physician is to help you heal yourself and facilitate the healing process. The primary goal in a Craniosacral session is to not only treat your condition, but maximize your health overall.

Craniosacral Therapy I explores the philosophy, history, and principles of Craniosacral therapy as well as providing practical hands on assessment and techniques to treat a wide variety of conditions.  No prior training or prerequisites required. Class is accredited through the National Massage and Bodywork Association (NCBTMB) for 24 continuing education hours for massage therapists.

Part I:
Increase physical palpation skills to rely on as a highly sensitive and intuitive health care tool
Locate the source of physical problems by assessing the myofascial system, chakra and energetic systems of the body.

Part II:

Utilize techniques that rebalance the autonomic nervous system to release accumulated life stress held within the tissues of the body.
Learn techniques to realign the bones of the head: frontal, parietal, temporal, and sphenoid to enhance blood flow and CSF flow.
