This Asian Bodywork and Craniosacral Techniques training provides students with hands on training, assessment, and treatment planning. In some people standard massage treatment strategies don’t always apply when their patterns of imbalance have become deeply established.
Chronic illnesses often represent a complex interweaving of health and pathology that demands an approach that is made with extreme care and accuracy. It must address both the gross anatomy; the organs, parts, and structures of a body that are visible to the naked, and the subtle anatomy.
Deep listening, subtle palpation skills of craniosacral therapy combined with the sophisticated theoretical and technical repertoire of Asian bodywork is what students will learn in this workshop. You’ll develop the skills to directly support and encourage areas of stagnation or difficulty while gaining a deeper appreciation for the body’s healing process “as it happens”.
Gaining hands on experience treating key structures and organ systems along with a careful view of assessment, treatment planning, and the long-term healing process is the objective. Participants should have prior training in Asian bodywork therapeutic massage. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a sheet and face covers for a face crescent, or a pillowcase.
