This course focuses on the anatomy and physiology of the 12 cranial nerves, how they might become dysfunctional, and how to help restore function using new and existing techniques derived from Upledger CranioSacral Therapy. Participants will:
• Briefly review of key CS1 and CS2 concepts.
• Learn new ways to specifically address cranial nerve dysfunction.
• Work on deepening skills related to palpation and therapeutic presence.
• Apply all the information acquired to increase their confidence and efficacy within a CST treatment session.
The course carries a prerequisite of CS2 to help ensure students have a strong foundation in Upledger’s CST paradigm and core skills. Like other Upledger CST courses, this one blends lecture, demonstration, and hands-on practice. Experiential learning of the material is given high priority. Throughout the workshop, students will receive comprehensive information on the 12 nerves beyond what is covered in other Upledger CST classes. As such, this course provides an excellent optional preparation or support for those moving into or already practicing advanced pediatric CST (CSP), obstetrics CST (CCPB), or The Brain Speaks (TBS) work.
