Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle yet profound method for enhancing the function of the nervous system and returning balance and mobility to the whole body. This safe and supportive process allows for the release of deep-seated trauma held within our body and supports in reconnecting with and expressing who we are at the deepest level.
Learn craniosacral and trauma release work in a professional training over three modules

Release your own trauma
The Craniosacral Institute is an innovative craniosacral school founded in 1995 by Michael Aaron, DC. We offer intuitive cranial sacral training, emotional and trauma release work and are committed to the students gaining mastery in this field, so that they may support others safely and effectively in realizing their fullest potential.
The trainingemphasizes an intuitive, non-analytic, functional and biodynamic approach to cranial sacral therapy, trauma and emotional release. We listen, follow and allow the body's innate intelligence and inherent health to express itself fully, and support our clients in being fully present in their bodies.
Our approach to craniosacral therapy is one of compassionate reverence, deep embodied listening and presence.
We Believe health is always present and that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself; healing always comes from within.
The North Wind and The Sun
The North Wind boasted of great strength. The Sun argued that there was great power in gentleness.
"We shall have a contest," said the Sun.
Far below, a man traveled a winding road. He was wearing a warm winter coat.
"As a test of strength," said the Sun, "Let us see which of us can take the coat off of that man."
"It will be quite simple for me to force him to remove his coat," bragged the Wind.
The Wind blew so hard, the birds clung to the trees. The world was filled with dust and leaves. But the harder the wind blew down the road, the tighter the shivering man clung to his coat.
Then, the Sun came out from behind a cloud. Sun warmed the air and the frosty ground. The man on the road unbuttoned his coat.
The sun grew slowly brighter and brighter.
Soon the man felt so hot, he took off his coat and sat down in a shady spot.
"How did you do that?" said the Wind.
"It was easy," said the Sun, "I lit the day. Through gentleness I got my way."
Imagine a time when you had something deep to share with someone, yet in order for you to share it, you needed to feel completely safe. You needed them to just listen. Not impose, try to fix or change you, just listen. Can you imagine a time in the past when that happened? Can you imagine a time when it didn’t and with the other person’s good intentions, you felt stifled?
Craniosacral work offers this level of deep listening, without imposing or trying to fix something, allowing the client’s body to let go and express itself, maybe for the first time.
