CranioSacral Therapy is a whole body hands on application of gentle palpation, traction, compression, and rocking.  The approach with the techniques is to relieve or “release” restrictions, which impair nervous system functioning.  Rooted in Cranial Osteopathic technique, CranioSacral Therapy is now utilized by many healthcare providers, integrating these techniques to their approach to patient wellness.  The body of work presented to you in this class will credit the Upledger model of protocol as well as explore work described in Hugh Milnes ”Heart of Listening”.  CranioSacral work is not a diagnosis or a treatment plan designed by therapists.  It is a way of listening to the patient body; working with the most functional movement and allowing the body to move into new space, range of motion, sensation often experiencing freedom from pain.  The gentle palpations and delicate movements utilized allow the patient body to relax and self correct.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the anatomy and physiology of the CranioSacral system
• Understand the biomechanics (physics) of CranioSacral techniques
• Identify and practice palpation of the cranial motion/dynamic
• Evaluate CranioSacral motion at multiple sites in the body
• Acknowledge indications, precautions and contraindications for CranioSacral Therapy                  
• Create a proficient protocol for treatment
• Integrate the CS techniques demonstrated in this workshop in a therapeutic treatment

Please bring: A set of sheets and note taking supplies.

Course Details
ASAT™ C.O.R.E. (an acronym for Conscious, Ownership, Retrieval/Release, and Engage) is a unique approach to facilitation which helps clients exercise their unlimited capacity for conscious creation of life. ASAT™ C.O.R.E. helps identify and change the beliefs and agendas, along with their destructive life patterns, that form the 'first cause' of all problems mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. The efficacy of the ASAT™ C.O.R.E. approach lies in its ability to help the client become:

(C)onscious of the root cause of the problem quickly without getting bogged down by resistances. Once the problem is identified and the unaddressed beliefs, agendas and emotions (O)wned, lost gifts, strengths and talents can be located and (R)etrieved. Once retrieved, the limiting beliefs, agendas and destructive emotions can be(R)eleased and the energy and attention used to manifest the problem can now be redirected, along with the gifts, strengths and talents to (E)ngage, consciously, a more abundant, healthy and elegant future.

ASAT™ C.O.R.E. Counseling is not for everyone. But it is for those no longer satisfied with simply surviving and "getting by." Despite what the mental health "experts" say, the vast majority of people do not have mental health problems and are not in need of mental health professionals. Many within this vast majority are waking up and responding to the challenge of becoming who and what they were always meant to be. No longer satisfied with curing, they seek instead, real healing. No longer satisfied with fixing the same old problems, they seek instead to change them. These clients are looking, not for professionals who view them as "ill" or "dysfunctional," but for those professionals who can point the way to a forgotten capacity to handcraft a life of elegance, enchantment, abundance, magic, artistry and happiness...by conscious choice, not fate.
ASAT C.O.R.E Counseling Certificate Program includes a membership in The American Society of Alternative Therapists
