Introduction to Craniosacral Integration Therapy
Instructor: Nurit Nardi, MA, LMT, RCST
Craniosacral Integration, a powerful hands-on approach that treats and supports the body’s wisdom and its innate ability to heal, is a wonderful tool to add to your existing massage practice. It gently addresses the spine, skull, sacrum, and fascia to treat pain and trauma as well as supports the body’s self healing process. Craniosacral Therapy has been around for a long time, but lately it has become increasingly popular therapy due to its effectiveness and safety. This workshop provides a thorough introduction to a powerful and unique light touch therapy.
