Education and Training
Shambhala provides workshops and short courses in:
Myofascial Release Techniques
Designed for the remedial massage therapist, or other suitably qualified body therapist, who has already received some foundation training in myofascial bodywork. A range of advanced myofascial release techniques (both direct and indirect) are taught. Individual workshops generally relate to a specific body area and/or condition.
An introductory one day workshop is available for participants with no previous knowledge of craniosacral therapy. The workshop covers: a brief history of craniosacral bodywork and how it has evolved; understanding the ‘Craniosacral’ concept and the primary respiratory system; the range of therapeutic applications; hands-on skills. Participants practise ‘listening’ to the various expressions of craniosacral motion in the body. They are also introduced to simple techniques, including stillpoint induction, that impact the craniosacral system to promote healing.
For those interested in learning more, a six day foundation training course in craniosacral therapy is available. (Contact Shambhala for more information).
Trigger Point Therapy
