Event description
The skills you will learn are useful in any manual therapy practice, including osteopathy, myofascial release and remedial massage.

About this Event

This seminar explores several approaches to nervous system balancing drawn from osteopathy, energy medicine, and modern research on nervous system resiliency. Specific skills for stress management, enhanced immune function, and increased vitality and motivation will be taught. Diverse sources including craniosacral therapy, polarity therapy, polyvagal theory, and leading edge research inform our practice. The seminar emphasizes hands-on approaches to balancing the nervous system. The skills you will learn are useful in any manual therapy practice, including osteopathy, myofascial release, remedial massage, physiotherapy, as well as somatic psychotherapy, naturopathy, nursing, and other health care professions.

Students in this training will be able to:

• Articulate distinctions among central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems

• Specify unique anatomy related to each of the above

• Discuss the physiological complementarity of the two autonomic branches—sympathetic and parasympathetic

• Demonstrate bodywork contacts for working with each branch of the autonomic nervous system

• Describe three levels of nerve facilitation, the physiology of hyperactivity in the nervous system that creates self-perpetuating feedback loops between the NS and the rest of the body

• Cite the basic premise of polyvagal theory, and reasons why different aspects of the vagus nerve behave differently

• Name three styles of stress responses in relation to the autonomic nervous system

• Demonstrate two different bodywork approaches to mitigating stress effects in the body
