Please join us for this unique Dissection Livestream event, The Cranio-Sacral System with Anatomy Trains author Tom Myers, and Master Dissector Todd Garcia.

This course will be provided over zoom webinar with multiple camera views, live chat and Q&A. Recordings will be provided via password protected streaming access for 5 days. This special dissection livestream format allows us to go more deeply into the relationships and applications to multiple manual and movement modalities, from athletic training to trauma resolution to osteopathy.
