Cranial Mobilization III
Certification in Cranial Mobilization is currently being formulated and will be awarded to practitioners that complete the series of classes and pass the appropriate written and practical exams. There will be between 5 and 6 classes in the series.
This 3rd level course will consist of a continuation of the specific evaluation and treatment of the cranial complex focusing further on honing your skill level that will allow you to treat deeper cranial structures as well as specific sutural articulations. Time will also be allocated for practicing and refining evaluation techniques and strategies to hone in more specifically on the more primary lesions. This course will cover the theoretical and practical-lab application of the following topics:
- Further understand the ongoing role of the Primary Respiratory Mechanism (PRM) in diagnosis and treatment
- Further develop palpation skills for maximum effectiveness in evaluation and treatment
- Further develop the concept of lesion hierarchy and priority for treatment
- Perform cranial localization and release for the temporal complex consisting of the sphenopetrous, petrobasilar, sphenopetrous ligament
- Develop understanding of the importance of the facial bone complex for overall cranial motion
- Perform an evaluation and treatment for the falx cerebri, falx cerebelli, and tentorium cerebelli using multiple cranial sickle techniques
- Perform evaluation and treatment of the mechanics and articulations of the ethmoid, and the vomer and their importance for dural membrane restrictions
- Initial exploration of the treatment of the encephalon utilizing the cerebral hemispheres and the 3rd ventricle
- Appropriately plan for the next treatment using the results of your re-evaluation and the response of the patient
