Service Description

Visionary Craniosacral Work® 1 – Advanced Content Class The Jugular Foramina in VCSW® In this eight-hour class students will focus on the anatomy, physiology and manual therapy techniques as applied to the area surrounding the jugular foramina. This study will encompass bone and soft-tissue landmarks, building outwards from the foramina themselves, to include the major neuro-cranial bone structures. The study will begin with the embryology of the cranial base and cranial vault, noting the differentiation of ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm and the emergence of the primitive streak on day 14. The embryological study will continue through week 40, encompassing the ossification sites and ossification times of the major cranial base bones, as well as the closure times of the fontanel. Building on the understanding of embryological development and ossification chronology, we will study the relationship of the posterior and middle cranial fossa to the tentoria cerebelli and the brainstem. From there we will investigate the function, dysfunction and importance of cranial nerves IX, X and XI to manual therapy in the field of craniosacral therapy. Students will also be introduced to the relationship of CN XI, the Spinal Accessory, to the ‘Windows to the Sky’ points in Chinese Medicine. We will study the proximity of the external ear to the temporomandibular joint, and how craniosacral work can be used in the treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMD. The final segment of this class will be a 90-minute craniosacral protocol using manual therapy contacts to facilitate optimum function in cranial nerves IX, X, and XI. *8 CEUs - NCBTMB approved
