  • Cranial therapy

Everything starts at the beginning of 1900, when the doctor and American osteopath William Sutherland maintained, contrary to an established credo, that the skull's bones are not firmly fixed, but can move in relation to one another. He noticed a subtle physiological movement, without any apparent cause, in cerebrospinal liquid. It led him to declare that this movement was attributable to a fundamental vital force, “breath of life”. He named it primary respiratory movement. Respiratory: because it corresponded to the breathing of living tissues. Primary: because this mechanism would underlie others, of which heartbeat.

In this training, the student will learn the theoretical and practical foundations of the skull and his annexes therapy. Seminars allowing the acquisition of a diploma in cranial therapy are the following :

Cranial therapy 1 – general points, anatomy, biomechanics and osteopathic treatment of the temporal bone and frontal chains

Cranial therapy 2 – Occiput, sphenoid bone and SBS

Cranial therapy 3 - Parietal, frontal and ethmoid

Cranial therapy 4 - Face bone and temporal-mandibular articulation

  • Study and osteopathic treatment of venous sinus, of dura-mater and ventricles
