 - Touch Therapy for the Critically, Chronically and Terminally Ill
Touch Therapy for the Critically, Chronically and Terminally

It is such an honor to be able to provide this workshop to you. For so long the dying experience has been pushed to the back of the mind so that it need not be faced up to or dealt with until it is actually happening within one’s realm of family and friends. The challenge I put before you is to open your mind and set aside how you have previously approached the subject of death and dying in order to realize through touch that you can be an integral part of easing away the fear of dying in the last days of another’s physical existence. Death is such an incredible spiritual experience. It is the culmination of all we have thought, known, doubted and believed suddenly thrown into an arena often referred to or defined as ‘transition’. I hope to dispel the definition of ‘Death’ as being an ugly word and show you ways to embrace and find peace within the amazing event of the physical to spiritual transitioning.

With its low-impact, nurturing approach to working with the spine, the skull, the diaphragm, and the fascia to release pain in the body, Craniosacral Therapy has become an increasingly popular healing method. Rhythm and Touch explains in detail how it works. Divided into two parts, the book follows a simple, step-by-step instructional model. Part one guides the practitioner in discovering the craniosacral rhythm and learning how to interpret and respond to its cues. Following the line of the spine from pelvis to neck and head, this section develops a protocol for a basic session. It details how to touch the body and support the inner healing process. Part two offers a thorough review of the brain’s protective and nourishing environment, the cranium. It introduces new means of assessing and easing restriction in the relationship of cranial bones. Moving outward from the cranium, this section describes the bones of the mouth and face, their interrelationship and motions, and how to assess and release the results of injury.
