Course Description

Fascial impairments contribute to pain, limited mobility and functional disability.  Review physiology of the craniosacral fascial systems, assessment and interventions for 3-D transverse fascial planes, and the body’s craniosacral/fascial relationships.  Practice craniosacral and fascial releases to release abnormal tension including sacral, frontal, parietal, temporal, occipital and mandibular releases. Apply compression and distraction interventions to facilitate motion of the extremities, joints, cranial base, thoracic outlet, pelvic floor and respiratory diaphragm.  Assess fascial strain patterns using general and local listening for posture sway and and balance testing to identify and treat primary fascial tension patterns. Promote fascial mobility using direct and indirect techniques for improved mobility, balanced posture and function. Review current research on the efficacy of this manual therapy to manage pain, promote function and manage mobility limitations.

  1. Describe fascial and craniosacral anatomy and function in normal and pathological conditions.
