This initial course in the Craniosacral Certificate of Competency focuses on patient assessment that includes the musculoskeletal system, body diaphragms, craniosacral rhythm and cranial membranes, as well as recognizing patterns of restriction.

Participants must be licensed health care practitioners who are licensed to touch. We can also accept students who are training in those fields.
The fascial system and its critical role in health and well-being will be discussed, from the specific to the whole body (including the membranes of the head). You will learn to recognize and assess the craniosacral rhythm at various points in the body, and to use it as an assessment tool. Learn to perform the still-point technique and dural tube glide, and explore the role of these techniques in normalizing tensions throughout the body. Additionally, we will cover the importance of the various membranes within the craniosacral system, including ways to assess restriction within the membrane system, and recognize its implications on general well-being and health. The seminar includes a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice. There are 23 in-class hours plus 5-10 hours of pre-reading assignments.
