CST for Birth - NO UPCOMING EVENTS
Join Laura for a half-day workshop on craniosacral therapy and myofascial release techniques specifically designed to support the birthing person. These techniques can improve birth outcomes, parental comfort and a smoother recovery. This workshop will entail approximately 1-1.5 hours of lecture including a short history of CST, what CST/myofascial unwinding is, examples of how this work can be applied and more! We will enjoy a potluck to build community, network among attendees and get to know each other as birth professionals. Following the potluck, participants will have the opportunity to practice hands-on techniques so that they can feel the release of fascia, changes in the body, learn how interconnected the body truly is through personal experience, and feel confident in their newly attained skills.
Some of the techniques to be learned are diaphragm release, cranial balance, standing sacral release, and uterine unwinding. We will also briefly talk about several important techniques for infants that can be done as soon as baby is born to help them short-term and long-term.
This workshop is intended for birth workers such as doulas, midwives and nurses who support families during their birthing time. Space is limited to 8 people per class. Register today!
