CranioSacral Therapy for Chronic Depletion

A Specialized Training for Therapists

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

As a CranioSacral therapist, you are able to offer something uniquely supportive to clients who suffer from chronic depletion, once you know how to recognize and treat it.

When clients have been under long-term stressors, their bodies, minds, and spirits can become profoundly depleted. The result can be challenging and unpredictable for even the most experienced practitioners.

Clients who are chronically depleted can have unpredictable treatment reactions, little apparent gain from therapy, and extremely complex presenting problems. In short, a lot of factors come together and make it likely the complex client will terminate treatment early and the practitioner will feel unsuccessful. With today’s increasingly complex world, more and more of our clients are showing up chronically depleted and looking for help.

In this course for CranioSacral practitioners, you will learn:

  • Skills for working with the complex and chronically depleted client
  • New assessments methods
  • Effective techniques and strategies in client coaching
  • How to work with patterns of dysfunction rather than isolated restrictions.

Being a skilled practitioner of CST is an art form as much as it is a skill set. After spending this weekend with Eric Moya, you will take home a variety of ways to tailor your sessions to meet the needs of your patients, leading to greater fulfillment for you and well-being for them.
