    Virtual Lectures/Discussions Jan 19-Feb 25

     

    Expand Your Osteopathic Skills

    Highly regarded by its practitioners and patients alike, the study of osteopathy in the cranial field includes broadening and deepening the perceptual skills of the practitioner, as well as intensive study of the anatomy and physiology of the cranium and its inter-relationship with the body as a whole.  Learn how this approach can be applied for the benefit of your patients in the prevention and treatment of disease, and enhancement of health. What You Will Learn
    • Explore the components of the primary respiratory mechanism, including articular, cerebrospinal fluid, fascial/membranous and nervous system anatomy.
    • Deepen your understanding of the body as a dynamic unit with a capacity for self-healing.
    • Establish the basis for palpatory diagnosis and treatment.
