COMBINE CRANIOSACRAL, NEUROMUSCULAR, AND FASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY TO IMPROVE THERAPEUTIC OUTCOMES
Due to the complexity and flexibility of the head, neck, and shoulder complex, it is extremely vulnerable to injury, stress, and strain. As therapists, you know this and see it in your practice day after day. What you feel and see are unresolved trauma patterns that lead to pain, inflammation, and myriad dysfunction. Trauma overstimulates the autonomic nervous system (ANS), often igniting the fight, flight, or freeze response. Deep tissue work and other invasive modalities may add to the problem, denying successful therapy outcomes. In this seminar, attendees discover a deeply connective, extremely effective method of treatment to achieve long lasting results and successful therapeutic outcomes.
In a dynamic and integrative approach, Cross Country veteran instructor, Ken DiPersio, teaches a multi-modality method combining highly effective techniques from Craniosacral, Myofascial, and Neuromuscular therapies in an easily integrated 9-step protocol to rehabilitate the head, neck, and shoulders. During interactive labs, attendees practice gentle touch techniques that often lead to profound changes in the body structures, fluids, and fields. Utilizing supporting information from Quantum Physics, Biophysics, Biomechanics, Fluid Dynamics, and Human Embryology, discover foundational philosophies and develop hands-on skills that will expand your abilities, support the patient/client in their return to health, and expand your practice. Recent graduates and experienced therapists of all modalities will benefit and may integrate these principles and techniques immediately.
