This timely course teaches beneficial skills for enhancing immune system functioning. Craniosacral Therapy was originally developed within osteopathic medicine, with its understanding of physiology and health. You will learn how to contact the inherent health in yourself and clients. We will study how the immune system is compromised by stressful circumstances, and ways of supporting it to return to balance. Obviously, this is a critical time for using these practices in our lives and with our clients.
The course is open to everyone, as we feel it is important to get the word out about this valuable work. Ideally, students will have background in the healing arts and possibly prior exposure to Craniosacral Therapy, however, this is not prerequisite. The seminar is open to all.
Specific course content includes:
- Ways of recognizing the inherent health in living systems.
- Supporting the natural dynamics of the healing process.
- Understanding the body’s stress circuits, anatomically and biochemically.
- Bodywork methods for reducing stress and enhancing immunity.
- The nature of consciousness, mind, and spirit in relation to immune functioning and overall wellness.
This seminar offers critical information for practitioners in the healing arts. Keeping the immune system strong is fundamental during a pandemic. For people who have had Covid, this work helps to restore immune system balance. If you work with long-haulers who have residual symptoms, this work reaches the deeper imbalances that have maintained the responses. Healing is always possible, and this course explores the essential dynamics of healing.
