Cranial Suture Spinal Alignment

26-27 October, 2024   Nottingham

A gentle yet extremely effective way to adjust misaligned vertebrae and sacroiliac/sacrum through the cranial sutures (joints of the skull bones). No “cracking” involved!  The cranial sutures are connected to the vertebrae via proprioceptive circuits (part of the proprioceptive nervous system). By touching with sensitive, skilled contact we can facilitate a deep level of freedom, release and alignment of the vertebrae and also the underlying energetic patterns.

This is subtle and sensitive work and the approach requires a profoundly deep, respectful and spacious listening as well as an expanded perception. As a practitioner you will develop a greater sensitivity and skill to see, hear, feel energy. The receiver becomes more aware of their own journey towards alignment – in their body and life.

This is part of the Shiatsu ShinTai bodywork approach developed by Saul Goodman. The aim is to facilitate deep levels of health, freedom and consciousness through touch. More about  ShinTai here

On this workshop we will explore

  • Proprioceptive practices to enhance sensitivity and awareness
  • How to prepare the receiver to optimise these adjustments
  • Assessment of vertebral misalignments
  • Cranial suture correlations with vertebrae
  • Cranial suture adjustment technique for the vertebrae and sacroiliac/sacrum
  • Self-treatment of cranial bones
  • Bone Ki activation
  • Cranial Stillpoint technique
