This course bridges skills from Craniosacral Therapy to the vascular system. In particular, the various "tides" of the craniosacral system will be referenced through their activity in the cardiovascular system.  Of particular interest will be the long tide as it is called in Biodynamic Osteopathy. Based on new scientific information, Craniosacral Therapy palpation will be used to increase the function of the major arteries of the body.  The tone of the arteries is controlled by the autonomic nervous system which regulates the tension in the artery. Students will learn what a balanced artery feels like to lower stress in the client.  

This class will focus on the following arteries:

radial, anterior tibial, posterior tibial, subclavian, inferior common carotid and vertebral arteries.  These arteries are associated with osseous structures and thus easy to locate and work with. 

Biological health will also be discussed from a metabolic point of view in which cellular metabolism of the artery is greatly disturbed in the contemporary client.  Metabolic syndromes will be discussed in order to inform the students of an epidemic of such occurring in the United States.

This course fulfills the minimum requirements of necessary CE classroom hours for Massage Therapists in the state of Florida.
