3 Professional Advantages Gained from Craniosacral Training

Registration is underway for our multi-day Pediatric Craniosacral Therapy Training courses!

As an Occupational Therapist with 13 years of experience, including nearly a decade of pediatric-focused craniosacral therapy, Bek created an entry-level and an advanced-level course after noticing a growing local and national need for craniosacral therapy services. She has long been a passionate continuing education teacher in the field, and hopes to equip fellow healthcare professionals with extended knowledge and skills to give their practice a leg up and provide much-needed care to community children.

Bek’s craniosacral therapy approach is informed by her extensive background across multiple modalities. Her courses integrate principles drawn from occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, neuropsychology, and traditional medical practices.

Interested healthcare professionals will begin with Pediatric Craniosacral Therapy Training Level 1, Bek’s entry-level course that spans 21 total hours of training across 3 days. Course objectives include a thorough introduction, plus learning to assess craniosacral and structural function, administer basic pediatric craniosacral treatments, review and apply patient history, review craniosacral-related diagnoses, establish trust with children and parents, and participate in guided hands-on practice and demonstrations.

Participants who complete the course will be awarded a certificate upon conclusion. Check with your licensing board to confirm whether your time in class is applicable toward individual licensing requirements.

Overall, participants will glean many professional benefits from craniosacral therapy training. Here are the top 3:

1. Give your practice an edge

Whether you’re an MD, naturopath, chiropractor, occupational therapist, physical therapist, speech-language pathologist, midwife, licensed massage practitioner, or International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, craniosacral therapy services are in high demand — especially for parents who are searching for a qualified and trustworthy provider for their babies, children, or young teens.

2. Expand your knowledge bank and skill set

Once you can apply your newfound craniosacral therapy background, your practice as a whole will benefit from drawing upon an expanded knowledge bank. Especially in your work with young patients, you will be able to more thoroughly assess their symptoms and arrive at the most optimal treatment plan.

3. Make informed decisions about the health of children in your family

Your healthcare knowledge doesn’t end when you’re off the clock. If you have children of your own, or if your extended family includes children, the ones closest to you can benefit from your personal guidance and knowledge as they seek to become their healthiest selves.
