Continuing Education- Cranial Techniques & Applications

Cranial Techniques & Applications - Level 1

Technique focus:

This course teaches cranial technique applications that combine elements of Cranial work following the models of Dr.’s Sutherland, Upledger, and Littlejohn.


• Indications and contraindications

• Applying cranial techniques with special attention and focus on decompressing the cranium. Understanding the fundamental principles of craniosacral therapy including:

  • How to accurately identify barriers, restrictions, and abnormal motions throughout the cranium and the rest of the body

  • How to determine the significant relationships of the altered movements of the cranium and their impact in the body

  • How to use proper biomechanics and accurately and safely apply short and long leverages

  • How to determine when it is most appropriate to use client passive or active assistance

How the techniques work:

The techniques work through mechanical and neurophysiological reflex mechanisms. These mechanisms are those that have been experimentally and clinically proven and validated through the commonly used Cranial techniques as modeled by Dr.’s Sutherland, Upledger, and Littlejohn.
