Craniosacral Therapy (5 CE Hrs) -

In this continuing education (CE) course on craniosacral therapy, John Hoffmann, LMT, discusses how craniosacral therapy, a light touch technique, helps palpate the fluidity of the craniosacral system and eliminate restrictions to the flow that can cause illness, pain, and dysfunction. He demonstrates the strokes and a complete routine for providing a complete therapeutic session on the body from the cranium to the sacrum. In addition to written text, video excerpts are included for discussion of the topics and for visual, step-by-step demonstrations of craniosacral therapy techniques. Also included are: benefits and contraindications, origins and theories, craniosacral system's anatomy and physiology and how the system affects the body’s well-being, and how to integrate craniosacral therapy with other modalities. Resources are included for licensing and further information.

This course is worth 5 CE hours
