The ShareCare seminar has been specifically designed by Dr. John E. Upledger for persons with no prior knowledge of anatomy or physiology. Dr. Upledger is the osteopathic physician who led the research team to establish the scientific basis for a craniosacral system. He has shown how the system could be used to evaluate and treat misunderstood malfunctions involving the brain, spinal cord, and a myriad of other health problems such as chronic pain and lowered vitality, and recurring infections.
Workshop participants with no background in manual techniques can learn about the craniosacral system and its influence on their overall health. The presenter, trained by the Upledger Institute, provides information on the history and theory of CranioSacral Therapy, then introduces a few simple techniques. Participants learn how to palpate the craniosacral rhythm, experience and induce Still Point, use the CV-4 self-help technique, apply direct energy, and decompress the TMJ. These techniques were designed to relieve headaches, reduce stress, control pain, promote relaxation, and to lead participants to a greater understanding of their role in their own health. This workshop provides a medium in which people may come to realize the natural healing abilities of the human body.
ShareCare is a one-day hands-on workshop that runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. It offers 6 CEUs for RN, LPN, OT, PT, SW, MD, LMT and LAc.
