The typical human body is asymmetrical in both structure and function. Contributing significantly to these asymmetries is the body’s neuromusculoskeletal compensations for the almost-universal presence of two chronic craniosacral patterns: a Right Torsion and a Left Lateral Strain. Chiropractors, osteopaths, physical therapists and others use a wide variety of modalities to treat cranial, spinal, and pelvic patterns and their compensatory neuromusculo-skeletal dysfunctions.
However, manual muscle testing and other evaluation procedures from Applied Kinesiology demonstrate that both the chronic Right Torsion and the Left Lateral Strain patterns, as well as their compensatory neuromusculoskeletal patterns, are almost always still present in both the general and clinical populations. These findings indicate that the treatment procedures currently in general use are not effective in treating these chronic patterns.
The chronic Right Torsion and the Left Lateral Strain patterns can be considered ‘pseudo-structural’ in the sense that the position and function of the cranial components, and the resulting chronic patterns of musculoskeletal compensation, are long-standing. (See CranioSomatic Syndrome). Their resolution requires special treatment procedures to release the cranial soft-tissue holding elements and mobilize the osseous cranial structures.
Hancock CranioSomatic Institute presents a series of workshops which provide the concepts and procedures which can permanently eliminate these two chronic cranial patterns and their associated compensatory musculoskeletal dysfunctions. The procedures do not need to be repeated. (See CranioStructural Integration).
A brief description of each workshop is presented below these notable features.
Notable features of the CranioSomatic Therapy workshops:
Cranial models are used as teaching aids in class. These realistic models facilitate understanding of cranial anatomy and the application of cranial techniques.
The student / instructor ratio is typically no greater than 12 /1 to maximize the effectiveness of our unique training approach.
Detailed manuals are included in the workshop tuition. These ensure accurate recall of the workshop concepts, minimize the necessity of taking notes, and facilitate correct use of the procedures in clinical applications.
The CranioSomatic Therapy workshops build on knowledge and skills developed in the preceding workshops and are designed to be taken sequentially, as listed below:
