The Brain Therapy Curriculum is an advanced-level course that takes us to the next realm of manual therapy. It explores the brain, spinal cord, white matter, grey matter, and, at this level, brain nuclei such as corpus callosum, septum pellucidum, indusium griseum, fornix, thalamus, globus pallidus, amygdala, hippocampus, brainstem, cerebellum, etc.
The body often aligns itself around these precise structures, and they are frequently unaddressed key/dominant tissue restrictions.
The techniques presented in this Course may help most of your patients. It can specifically help pathologies such as closed-head injuries, whiplash, headaches, dyslexia, cerebral palsy, cognitive behavioral dysfunctions, learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease. Students will learn specific techniques to release brain-centered restrictions as well as the damaging effects that these restrictions cause.
Brain 1 is an advanced class that uses a slightly different paradigm by working extensively with the brain parenchyma, grey and white matter, cranial and spinal structures instead of only concentrating on the cranial bones and membranes.
This work requires perceptual skills to address tissue microstructures, and we will have specific exercises in the class to help build these skills.
In the cerebellum, this class will propose different ways to release these structures, and once learned, you will understand how these structures are repeatedly one of the most important and yet least often addressed components of somatic dysfunctions.
Many topics will be covered in the Brain Therapy classes, in general, including:
- 1. Cranial bones (intraosseous and interosseous lesions) Claustrum
- 2. Cranial membranes in all anatomical directions
- 3. Fluid: 3 distinct compartments
- a. Subarachnoid spaces and cerebral cisterns
- b. Brain parenchyma and the glymphatic system
- c. Ventricles
- 4. Grey Matter: 3 and 6 layered cortex and brain nuclei
- 5. White Matter: 3 types of organization
- 6. Electromagnetic field (EMF) of the brain
- 7. Emotions, as well as mental or spiritual dimensions.
I know that the normal brain lives, thinks, and moves within its own specific membranous articular mechanism." - Sutherland WG, The Cranial Bowl, Free Press, First Edition, 1939, reprint 1994, pp 51.
Bring comfortable, loose-fitting clothes.
