The School of Inner Health is honored and excited to host Emily Martin as Guest Instructor teaching a course she has developed from her years of education and experience with babies, families and craniosacral therapy.
About the Course –
The Supporting Babies in the Cranial Field course is designed as an embodied experience for established Craniosacral Therapists who are looking to build foundational skills specific to babies. Our intention will be to deepen our knowledge, expand our hands-on skills and become confident navigating the multifaceted family field.
This is an advanced biodynamic course for RCSTs to deepen their understanding of the unique dynamics of supporting babies to arrive & embody within their unique family field. This course will include building skills to hold the field of parent and baby together.
Students will review the stages of a vaginal birth process & explore the specialized anatomy of infants & birth imprints. Some of the imprints in posture, body & cranium expressions that parents seek BCST for will be discussed including Colic, Torticollis, Plagiocephaly and Brachycephaly.
These explorations will occur in the context of practicing & honing skills of presence & recognition in this early life field as students will explore their own birth & postpartum material.
For babies & their families navigating their first months together, being met with embodied understanding & knowledgeable hands can have far reaching impacts for feeding, bonding & development. In this class we will discuss what these impacts look like & expand the knowledge we need to be effective supporting these experiences.
Craniosacral Therapy for babies and children is becoming more well known, in-demand and recommend by main-stream medical providers. Currently, the need is outpacing the number of experienced, knowledgeable practitioners. This course is an introduction to this rich and rewarding field with hands-on skills you can immediately apply to your practice.
* Upon enrollment, students are asked to provide a copy of their diploma/certificate in craniosacral therapy.
