ZZI.) Craniosacral Introductory Workshop (Seattle September 13-15, 2024)


Product Description

Instructor: Lauren Christman, LMT, CCST; NCBTMB #450788-08

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, dynamic and holistic approach to accessing the human capacity for health and vitality, using generally light touch to interface with the nervous system and fluid body. The Craniosacral Introductory Workshop presents basic Craniosacral methodology and techniques, including related anatomy and physiology of the cranial wave, individual cranial bones, the membrane system, and the core link between the cranium and sacrum.

In addition to the technical and analytical learning, students practice techniques to develop sensitive hands, an open heart, and the inner stillness needed to apply this work. At the end of this class, students will have the foundation for cranial therapy, including the theories, the personal presence, the ability to perceive the cranial rhythm, and the most fundamental hands-on techniques in Craniosacral Therapy.

This class is a pre-requisite to the Craniosacral Core Series, Certification and most Elective classes.

What participants have said about this class:

  • "This course will positively impact what I do. I can get back to being soft and gentle, use more intuition, and save my thumbs!" — P.B.
  • "I want to thank you again for the magnificent Introductory class. You were right when you said that whether we used craniosacral or not, our practices (actually my life) would be transformed by listening and being present in an expanded way." — Beverly C.
  • "I was gushing about your class to my colleagues this morning..that was the best technique class ever! What impresses me is how you took the time to walk in the shoes of the learner and create exercises, metaphors and experiences that make the work accessible. I'm super impressed and inspired...and thankful that you put so much thought and effort into creating your class." — Roselie R.
