In this short one-day CPD course, we shall discover the purpose of how the craniosacral system maintains the environment in which the nervous system functions. We will learn how to perform a cranial base release and work with Thai Sen meridians lines, to understand the relationship of fascia, and how to activate and tone the Vagus nerve.
Thai Sen lines are a complete system and very effective model to follow, however, there are some contradictions on the precise location of these lines between some schools. Most professionals though and myself seem to agree that Sen Lines are energy lines of connective tissue, known as the myofascial pathways between muscles throughout the entire body. This network of fascia is so vitally important because it provides stability and structure to the body, enables movement of muscles, metabolism to take place, protects the vital organs and nervous system, allows for communication between cells and boosts our immunity to fight infection to name a few functions.
The Theory is online and provides all information, however, the theory will be reinforced while doing the practical.
- The science of energy and breathing with techniques to relax the Vagus nerve.
- How the craniosacral system maintains the environment in which the nervous system functions.
- The major role in the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord.
- What the system is comprised of and the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
- The four diaphragms and the Vagus nerve.
- How the Thai yoga Sen Lines (meridian energy lines) relate to connective tissue, known as the myofascial pathways.
- In the practical session you will learn:
- Breathing techniques to relax the Vagus nerve.
- Holds for a Cranial base release.
- Work with Thai yoga Sen Lines and myofascial pathways.
This course will help you develop your hands on sensitivity to bodywork, working intuitively and learn to listen to the craniosacral system and its rhythm.
