Education of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Level 4 incl. Repetition Day 3

The Ventricles and the Diaphragms: Clinical Skills of Engagement

Course content

In this level of study students will learn important skills based on Dr. Sutherland’s discovery that the fluid systems of the body hold stress and trauma. The work from the previous level is expanded as students explore inertial fulcrums and begin to learn further ways of relating to them. Within this context, various craniosacral approaches to fluids and tissues are taught as non-verbal, kinesthetic conversation skills. Students learn to listen to the story, or history, of the client as it comes through the tissues and fluids, and to use particular skills to converse with them.

As this process deepens, students learn to offer options and to help the system access ist innate potential for health. These skills include the biomechanical approaches of craniosacral traction, disengagement, fluid direction and the use of lateral fluctuations. These are offered as conversations in which the system has a context for the telling of the story or history of the client.

Additional attention is placed on the clinical role of the twelve pairs of cranial nerves and on stillpoint facilitation. Students learn to deepen their understanding of the classical skills of CV4, EV4 and CV3. Therapeutic approaches to hyper- and hypo-arousal states resulting from shock and trauma will also be introduced.
