Craniosacral Therapy for Concussions: Balancing the Cerebrovascular System

This 4-day course is instructed by Michael Shea, PhD.
A course fee of $395 with a $100 nonrefundable deposit due by February 1. 

The schedule for the course is as follows:
Thursday, March 22: 9:00am-5:00pm
Friday, March 23: 9:00am-5:00pm
Saturday, March 24: 9:00am-5:00pm
Sunday, March 25: 9:00am-5:00pm

This craniosacral therapy course will explore the cerebrovascular consequences of impact trauma to the face, neck, and head. New research shows that concussions decrease blood flow to the brain indicating both short and long-term consequences physically and psychologically. Students will learn to work with the effects of concussions and mild traumatic brain injuries now common in everyday life and all age groups. Specific protocols will be taught to increase proper circulation in the brain and neck. Restrictions in the cardiovascular system from mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBI) will be explored with new craniosacral therapy skills for the arteries of the head and neck.

This course is open to any licensed manual therapists interested in learning about head injuries and how to gently work with them. Previous experience with craniosacral therapy is not necessary. This course is a complement to its sister course called Craniosacral Therapy for Concussions: Rebalancing the Cranial Base. Either course can be taken without the other. When both courses are taken, the student will have a very effective set of tools to work with a wide variety of impact trauma from car accidents to sports injuries. The following therapeutic skills will be taught:

 • New craniosacral therapy protocols for the cerebrovascular system.
 • Increasing blood flow to the brain.
 • Identifying and relieving specific vascular restrictions in the cranium.
