What you'll learn in this massage class:

This may be different from any other Cranial Class you have taken. In this class we will be using the Osteopathic Ortho-Bionomy principles to work on the Cranium.

We will be working with the:

• Structure (Phase 4)- Skin, Muscles, Bones
• Unwinding (Phase 5)
• The dynamic of how relaxing the practitioner deeply relaxes the client
• Reflexive patterns of the head to the rest of the body
• Energetics of the Cranium (Phase 6)
• Anatomy and Physiology, and Body/Mind Relationships

With the influence of the different nerves, blood, meridians, and brain stimulation going through the neck, head and face, the effects of this work can be quite powerful. It gives the saying “Get your head together” a whole other meaning.

The Ortho-Bionomy Cranial I Class can be applied to the Associate Training Program and the Registered Practitioner Program as an elective, and is a required class for the Registered Senior Practitioner Program.

The skills and sensitivity gained from this class can be used with any modality throughout the whole body.

Prerequisite: ONE 16 hour Ortho-Bionomy Class or permission of instructor. Bring two sheets to class.
