Advanced CranioSacral Therapy

Dora Franco, B.Sc., D.O., BI-D ( ) completed the course Advanced CranioSacral Therapy. This Course is the last course of the core CranioSacral Therapy Curriculum.

It is especially designed to provide an in-depth mind/body experience for the serious CranioSacral Therapy practitioners, including in multiple-hands sessions, bringing their evaluation skills and palpatory capabilities to an outstanding level.

Experience shows that this hands-on approach, supported as appropriate by dialoguing, guided imagery, creative visualisation and a variety of other neutrally offered tools, is not only empowering for the individual, but can achieve complete resolution of long-standing and deeply held patterns of emotionally-caused dysfunction.

We understand that when we are truly experiencing emotion, as distinct from merely thinking about it, our awareness is operating through our limbic system or mammalian brain. The limbic system is what we dream with. Unlike our neo-cortex, or higher brain, which is dominant during analytical processes, it is a part of our brain where metaphor, pictures and symbols are the language, rather than the logical use of words. It appears not to have the sense of time enjoyed by our "smarter" neo-cortex. But the limbic system connects with our autonomic nervous system and metabolism, which is why our physiology can be affected, sometimes to extremes, during dreams.

Careful guided use of the limbic system provides a direct voice for the body, enabling us to listen to its messages unimpeded by analysis, diagnosis or conditioning. Recruitment of the limbic system as a channel for communication and change engages the mechanical and the emotional in concert, thereby helping to bring resolution to long-standing and resistant problems more quickly and completely than approaches that focus on the analytical neo-cortex.
