Craniosacral Introductory Workshop
- Course Details
Presented by Lauren Christman, assisted by Kelly Chadwick
Whether you are an Acupuncturist, Nurse, Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, Massage Therapist, Naturopath, Medical Doctor, or any other healthcare professional, the skills you learn in this workshop will enhance and complement the work you already do with your patients.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, dynamic and holistic approach to accessing the human capacity for health and vitality, using generally light touch to interface with the nervous system and fluid body. The Craniosacral Introductory Workshop introduces basic Craniosacral methodology and techniques, including related anatomy and physiology of the cranial wave, individual cranial bones, the membrane system, and the core link between the cranium and sacrum. In addition to the technical and analytical learning, students practice techniques to develop sensitive hands, an open heart, and the inner stillness needed to apply this work. At the end of this class, students will have the foundation for cranial therapy, including the theories, the personal presence, the ability to perceive the cranial rhythm, and the most fundamental hands-on techniques in Craniosacral therapy. This class is a pre-requisite to the Craniosacral Certification Program, Core Series, and some Elective Classes.
Lauren Christman’s love of teaching was sparked first as a faculty member at the Brian Utting School of Massage (1995-2003). Team teaching across all topics was the foundation of this licensing program, and this became a guide for her approach to the classroom. During this time, Lauren also entered the world of continuing education by assisting her mentors in craniosacral therapy, structural bodywork and professional ethics. In 2005, she completed a teacher training with Tom Myers and began teaching Anatomy Trains classes regionally and nationally. She later became a Senior Faculty member in Myers’ Structural Integration training (KMI), teaching nationally and abroad, from 2007-2013. Alongside these programs, Lauren began developing short courses with her husband, Richard Polishuk, in Intraoral Work, Pediatric Fascial Balancing and Myofascial Balancing. In 2017, she began teaching the Craniosacral—A Healing Art certification program based in Seattle. This program offers an expansive umbrella under which Lauren can share her love of anatomy, osteopathic principles and treatments as well as a rich exploration of the healing process.
