Integrating Craniosacral Techniques With Massage

Deep within the core of all living things there is a rhythm, "a subtle tide-like ordering and organizing principle called primary respiration." (Franklyn Sills)

We call this the Breath of Life, the body's inherent life force.

This class is designed to introduce the basic skills required in Craniosacral Therapy, such as presence, stillness, attunement, allowing, trusting the body’s innate ability to heal itself, and the exquisite touch at allows the practitioner to listen through their hands. The anatomy and physiology of the craniosacral system will be discussed. Basic techniques will be demonstrated and practiced.

We ask that you do not wear any scented products to this class.
