For over 15 years Ruth has been working with babies, children and adults offering gentle Craniosacral Therapy with Myofascial Unwinding services. Now, there is a workshop for parents to learn what over a decade of experience and training has taught Ruth. This workshop is designed to teach the basics of CST and Myofascial release for workshop graduates to administer to their children and other loved ones. Students receive a Certificate of Completion on the last day of class.
Level 1–Foundational Course
Myofascial release and basic craniosacral techniques are a gentle, subtle, and effective way to help heal your family. The techniques learned in the workshop help release chronic tightness, aches and pains from slips and falls, and even playground injuries. Prerequisite: None.
Level 2–Intra Oral Releases
These gentle and subtle techniques can be used to mitigate pain and tension from dental work, braces, mouth guards, injury to the face or mouth, and stress that can lead to TMJ. Prerequisite: Level 1.
Level 3—Balancing Pregnancy and Newborns
Body Balancing techniques for those who work with pregnant people and babies. This level combines the techniques learned in the previous levels to help balance the pregnant woman to have a more comfortable pregnancy and labor, and after birth, to gently help mitigate the physical and emotional effects of birth on baby. Prerequisite: Levels 1 and 2.
