Course Description

In this workshop you will learn techniques for energy cyst and SomatoEmotional Release. These releases allow many patients to let go of cell and tissue memory which can be a cause of pain and illness.

You will learn how to apply CranioSacral Therapy techniques to help patients at a deeper level by developing improved listening and comprehension skills leading to an understanding of dialogue methods and therapeutic imagery. You will also review and enlarge upon the release techniques for the avenue of expression.

The aim of the workshop is to develop techniques for comfortable holistic mind-body resolution of problems and obstacles related to patient progress and growth.
