14. til 17. oktober 2017:
Hestanámskeið 2 : CranioSacral Therapy: EcoSomatics Equine 2 (ESE2).
This class provides an opportunity for Equine Professionals and/or CranioSacral Therapists to continue to explore and expand their equine CST skills and interspecies communications. Course material is more in depth, and techniques learned in Level 1 are reviewed, expanded upon, and augmented by techniques to include sutures, neural pathways, and kinetic chains. Course syllabus includes: Craniofacial Junction, Facial bones & techniques to release sutural restrictions, Stomatognathic system, Thoracic sling and suspension, Sternum and Rib techniques, advanced Sacrosciatic Ligament release techniques, Hyoid Apparatus, Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), Nuchal ligament and Regional Tissue Release of Cervical Spine, Fascial Glide techniques, Stay Apparatus, Extremity anatomy and techniques, and more.
Pre-requisite: ESE1 + recommend completion of 75 equine treatment sessions after completing ESE1 + confidence with palpation of CSR in equines; differentiating between stillpoint and significance detector and variability and depth of each + recommend receiving prior CST sessions on self (at least another 3) requirements after completion of ESE1
VM4 The Thorax (VM4)
After taking Visceral Manipulation: Abdomen 1 and 2, you’ve become acquainted with the feel of the different abdominal organs and local restrictions. In the Thorax workshop, you’ll take an expanded look at the functional biomechanics of the thoracic cavity. You’ll also explore the relationship between the hard frame and soft frame with its countless articulations for respiration, circulatory requirements and upper body movement patterns.
- Explore visceral fascia of the throat and thoracic cavity.
- Review the anatomy, biomechanics and function of the thoracic organs.
- Study the biomechanics of the cervical, thoracic, rib cage and shoulder girdle complex.
- Learn techniques to release the soft tissue components of the thoracic inlet and hyoid apparatus.
- Practice listening techniques within the thoracic activity.
- Understand practical integration of the thoracic cavity organs.
- Learn integration of the thoracic organs with the complex ligament systems of that body region.
- Discover techniques for differentiating between somatic and visceral causes for thoracic and spinal problems.
- Special Focus on Pleura, Lungs, Pericardium, Heart, Mediastinum, Thyroid, Trachea, Esophagus, Sternum, Rib Cage and Thoracic Plexuses.
„I have attended several of the Barral Courses in Dublin, all of which have been excellent. Each time I come away with a deeper appreciation and knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body. The applications are gentle and skillful, and amazingly effective. These courses have opened up new broader dimensions in how I practice Osteopathy. I would highly recommend Barral Courses.“
31 oktober til 2 nóvember 2018 Brain and Cranial Nerve Manipulation (NM4)
- Explore in detail the anatomy and function of the brain and cranial nerves.
- Discover typical pain patterns that arise from dysfunction of the brain and cranial nerves.
- Learn evaluation methods and treatment techniques to facilitate normal functioning of these nerves.
- Learn differential evaluation skills to determine skull, suture and brain fixation.
- Explore how compressions of the brain cause dysfunction in the cranial nerves.
- Discover how intercranial pressure affects the function of the entire body, and cranial techniques to bring about normal functioning.
- Learn practical integration into treatment sessions.
Hestanámskeið 1. CranioSacral Therapy: EcoSomatics Equine 1 (ESE1)
This class provides an opportunity for participants to develop and expand their non-verbal dialoguing skills through the exploration of inter-species communication. Therapists learn to listen with their hands, their hearts, and their inner wisdom. Course content includes introduction to equine anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics, as well as CranioSacral techniques for horses. Theory and practical application is included. Participants receive lectures in the mornings, with afternoon practice sessions entirely on horses. Course syllabus includes: Introduction to CST, CranioSacral Rhythm, Listening Stations, Tissue Release, Fascia/Connective Tissue, Fascial Diaphragms and techniques, Cranial Vault anatomy and techniques, Intracranial Membrane System and Spinal Membrane System, Dural Tube, Musculoskeletal System, Scapula, Sacrosciatic Ligament, Equine Behavior, Energy and Awareness, Safety around Horses, and more.
Pre-requisite: CST training and experience for humans with horse experience and a desire to offer CST to horses, or equine professional background without CST (human) training or experience or special permission from Instructor and/or Satellite and recommend receiving prior CST sessions on self (at least 3)
These courses have been developed for CranioSacral Therapists to have direct experiential contact with equines. The best way to appreciate the benefits of Equine CST is to Experience Equus – what it is to be (a) horse.
When we open our minds, our hearts, and our hands, we have the potential to gain a deeper, inner understanding from which empathy, concern, and respect for nature ensues. We offer our healing hands to them, the horses. In return, they teach us, allowing us the opportunity to experience “what is“, in constant connection with both our personal internal environment and the external environment that surrounds and encompasses us. As we engage with and observe these magnificent, sentient, emotional beings, we become open to new ways of “seeing“.
These workshops provide an opportunity to enhance our non-verbal communication skills, to study body language, and to explore energy bubbles and boundaries, in addition to learning CranioSacral techniques for equines. It is the hope of these courses to facilitate “what is“ to come into our hands…connecting heart with hands with heart.
Manual Thermal Evaluation and Introduction to Visceroemotional VM5
Course Length: 4 Days
Synopsis: VM5 studies the use of Manual Thermal Evaluation to evaluate and improve organ functions.
- Learn the use of Manual Thermal Evaluation to find restrictions and organ dysfunction in the body.
- Explore the synchronicity between the body and brain, and how that affects the health of a person.
- Discover how the brain uses the internal organs to discharge and express excess energy (often of emotional origin) and how that affects structural integrity.
- Practice working with energy loss, locating structural restrictions contributing to pain, and managing a therapeutic session.
Prerequisite: VM3 (The Pelvis) and VM4 (The Thorax).
Required Advance Reading: Manual Thermal Evaluation by Jean-Pierre Barral, RPT, DO;Understanding the Messages of Your Body by Jean-Pierre Barral, RPT, DO.
