Service Description

Visionary Craniosacral Work® 3 – Advanced Content Class Visionary Craniosacral Work® with the Cervical Vertebrae and First Rib In this one-day, eight-hour class students will focus on the sub-occipital transit, the cervical vertebrae, and the first rib. Beginning with a foundation in embryology, anatomy, physiology and pathology, students will be shown, and then practice, manual therapy and craniosacral approaches to this area. For clarity in the teaching process, the cervical spine will be divided into four soft tissue quadrants – anterior, posterior, left lateral and right lateral. An overview of the carotid and jugular vessels, the spinal cord, and cranial nerve XI will be included with a study of the cervical muscles and ligaments that are important in craniosacral work. Students will learn the basic embryology of the vertebral column, noting the differentiation of ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm and the emergence of the primitive streak and the first four occipital somites after day fourteen. The concept of the ‘Lutz’ will be discussed. The ossification chronology of the occiput, the neck and first rib will be studied. The relationship of the atlas to the posterior cranial fossa, to the foramen magnum and the brainstem will be outlined. Students will be asked to study the bony anatomy of the superior surface of the atlas, including the ‘reniform’ atlanto-occipital joints (AOJ). Students will learn about the fascicles and the other ‘check ligaments’ of the AOJ. From there we will investigate the physiology, pathology and dysfunction of the sub-occipital transit of cervical spinal nerves 1, 2 and 3, noting their passage into the brachial plexus and their route through the anterior triangle of the neck. *8 CEUs - NCBTMB approved
