Cranial Sacral Therapy for the Entire Face and Sacrum

October 29, 2016 - October 30, 2016


October 29 & 30, 2016

9am to 5pm

14 CE hours


with Joe Belanger

Did you know that you have five extremities and not just four? Our head can be thought of as the fifth extremity, and its joints (called sutures) need to be mobile for optimal health and wellness. These sutures can be the source, or lead us to the root, of dysfunction and patient complaints. In this practical 14 contact hour course, Joe will take the mystery out of cranial sacral technique and explain it in a manner which is easy to grasp and immediately applicable in attendees’ clinical environments. This course will introduce the philosophy of osteopathic manual therapy and examine in-depth the cranial-sacral system and the role it has in neurophysiology, biomechanics, patient symptomatology and illness. Joe will share the musculoskeletal system’s role in health and illness as well as the true value of a symptom. Through lecture (PowerPoint presentation), complete course manual, skull models and bones, demonstration of techniques, patient histories and supervised hands-on practice, we will explore each of the bones and sutures of the facial region ( frontal, nasal, ethmoid, zygoma, maxilla, palatine, vomer, teeth, mandible) and explain the influences these structures have on patient symptoms. We will experience what normal movement is for each bone and identify and release the key restriction(s) within these regions. The final two bones covered will be the sacrum and coccyx and their impact on this very dynamic system. In a treatment methodology which is often shrouded by some in “mysticism”, Joe is able to share and explain cranial technique in a manner which is easy to grasp and immediately applicable in attendees’ clinical environments. Explore this fascinating manual therapy approach and treatment paradigm and expand your understanding on how structure, energy and emotions can influence function, symptoms and illness.
