Program 2

Integrated Cranial Therapy

A multi-dimensional, eclectric blend of powerful,healing traditions for the treatment of chronic pain, stress and injuries in the cranium, presented in a 3 day intensive format.

Training Dates in Denver, Colorado:

Introductory Lecture - 2024 Dates to be announced (sign up to be contacted)

For content, refer to syllabus below.


**Neuromuscular Therapy for the Cranium

**Sutherland/Upledger Cranio-Sacral Therapy

**Fischer/Stone Cranial Mobilization

The 3 systems of cranial therapy are then integrated into a 52 step protocal treatment plan

There are 3 stages to Cranial Therpy--1) rehabilitation 2) core relaxation/normalization 3) rejuvenation/regeneration

The cranium is the vital pattern setter for the entire body, a complex network of tissues, glands, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, membranes, nerves, arteries, veins, capillaries and fluids.

This is the wrapping of the primary control center for the body, mind, emotions, instincts and other functions that are yet unknown.

This can be used a therapy by itself, or combined with deep tissue and other therapies to carry the work to an even deeper level.

With the integrative approach, the prepartory work of releasing the myofascial system of the cranium before the more subtle work of cranio-sacral therapy is given, create a more powerful, synergistic effect, maximizing therapy time.

The Cranial Mobilization of the Fischer/Stone tradition is a further enhancement for the over all balancing of the cranium.


**slowing down the aging process

**accidents, injuries, direct trauma

**severe blows to any part of the body

**headaches of all varieties: migraines, cluster, tension, sinus

**sinus congestion, pain and infections

**depression and other emotional problems

**acute systemic infections

**tinnitis, ear problems, ear pain, hearing loss

**anxiety, hysteria, post-traumatic stress, insomnia

**T.M.J. syndromes, jaw, face and scalp pain

**whiplash and neck pain

**learning disabilities as well as other disabilities such as austim, cerebro-palsy, attention deficit disorders, seizures, hyperkinesis, dyslexia and developemental delays

**visceral dysfunctions such as ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, asthma, irregular heart beat

**vision problems, blurred vision, eye pain

**can increase intuition, creativity and dreaming

**assists a person in times of transition and change, helping to adjust to upheavels and turmoil

**chronic pain syndromes of a wide variety

**arthritis; rheumatoid and other joint disorders

**low back pain and scoliosis

**autonomic nervous system disorder: Raynaud's syndrome

Integrative Cranial Therapy does not replace competent medical treatments, when needed. This therapy works in conjunction with skilled allopathic care. Those in severe pain are reccomended to work with their medical doctor as well as receiving regular Integrative Cranial Therapy
