The Dr. Sanet Lecture Series - Osteopathy in the Cranial Field

$ 2,400.00

Center for Balance will be hosting a series of talks with the esteemed Osteopath Dr. Steven Sanet. The 10-lecture series will cover the breadth of the traditional Osteopathic canon. This lecture will cover Osteopathy in the Cranial Field

Part 1: The Vault

This course is the foundation of cranial osteopathy. As an area of significant focus it will begin with the history of the modality from Dr. Sutherland and Dr. Weaver. The course covers the five phenomena, of which The Primary Respiratory Mechanism is derived. As the PRM fuels the focus of cranial it will be heavily emphasized as well as all structures involved in the vault and the diaphragms that follow.

The course will explore anatomy and theories of causation of the primary respiratory mechanism, the physiology of the PRM as well as contraindications and a protocol for treatment of the vault, diaphragms and sacrum.

Part 2: Advanced Cranial Osetopathy

This course will go on to cover Intraoral, the face, dorsum sellae and specialty techniques will continue our journey through the osteopathic cranial approach. Intraoral techniques will unlock physical maladies such as TMJ and cervical pain as well as emotional lesions via the 'avenue of expression.'

We will explore the effect of the PRM on the facial bones as well as discuss and demonstrate advanced cranial theories such as 'anterior midline and embryologic unfolding' and the role of the dorsum sellae, theories advanced by Dr. Sutherland and Dr. Weaver.
