The Body alchemy of Relational Neuroscience is a specialized course designed specifically for CranioSacral therapists working with patients who have experienced long term complex abusive relationships stemming from early childhood traumas, abuse or neglect that have occurred during the developmental cycles of life.  Their deregulated nervous system is often the underlying cause for the anxiety and depression which propels people to seek medical attention for their problems. This course prepares CS Therapists to manage these intense states helping to regulate your client nervous systems, release shock and tension patterns and rewrite more positive narratives.

In this course you will learn:

  • Specialized craniosacral techniques for balancing the nervous system and related areas of the brain.
  • How to create and hold a calm therapeutic presence.
  • How to gently release the freeze/shock from the body and brain.
  • Skills to help the client rebuild resilience and re -experience trust.
  • Appropriate deep body communication that engages the wisdom of the body mind.
  • How to develop clear, supportive boundaries for working with clients who have a history of anxiety, emotional deregulation, dissociation, and chronic pain.

The Body Alchemy is a 3 Day, experiential course that combines integrative CST therapies, with expressive arts therapies, psychodrama and specific somatic therapies that will allow the body to safely process emotional hurt, pain and fear. Through a relational neuroscience process that interacts with the body mind you will learn how to alchemically transform the client’s belief system so that they can reframe their past into a more cohesive, integrative, positive whole.
