Learn craniosacral and trauma release work in a professional training
Help others feel better and release their trauma safely and effectively
Release your own trauma
The Craniosacral Institute, offers a functional and biodynamic approach to craniosacral and trauma release work in a professional training over four modules.
Courses are designed for the beginner as well as the advanced student. In a typical class you may find massage therapists, naturopaths, acupuncturists, physiotherapists, shiatsu practitioners, myotherapists, kinesiologists, psychotherapists and other body workers, and some with no previous background in bodywork.
Although there is an emphasis on completing the program as a whole, each workshop stands on it's own; one, or all four may be taken.
We emphasize being receptive and practicing embodied presence and spacious listening and following.
When we practice Craniosacral Release we honour the inner wisdom of the client. The beauty in coming from this place of receptivity, presence and listening, is that it creates a greater degree of trust, openness and self-expression from the client.
When we come from a place of I’m going to fix you, I know what is best for you, it can create resistance, push back, tension and stress.
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 remember a time in the past when that happened?
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.
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.
