Instructor: Ellen Gayle Sovinee, NCBTMB Approved CE Provider #450498-07

Ellen Gayle has trained with several master teachers, assisted in over 50 Cranial classes since the 90’s and a CE instructor since 2003.

This advanced class is for students ready to take their cranial training to the next level.

We’ll begin with a brief overview of the first level and then move into finding, evaluating, treating and re-evaluating areas of restriction that have created dysfunction within the cranial system.
In this class, students will learn advanced techniques focusing on areas of dysfunction located at or around: primary cranial nerves, sphenobasilar junction, ears, eyes, nose, temporal mandibular joint, mandible, throat and hard palate. (addt’l. techniques may be included when working externally of the hard palate).
Class consists of lecture, demo and lots of hands-on practice.

“As trained under the guidance of 3 different osteopaths, I’m pleased to continue offering different ways to approach this valuable work as I somewhat did in my initial class.”

Pre-requisite: Completed one live course of cranial sacral therapy and have used some of the techniques learned in their massage/bodywork practice and Instructor’s Approval.

Schedule of this class and more are listed on instructor’s website:
