Course Description


Building on the knowledge and palpation skills acquired in Craniosacral Therapy (a pre-requisite for this class), The advanced level addresses the key to unlocking cranial vault dysfunctions that have not responded to the "Eleven Steps to Heaven" protocol taught in Level I.

Prerequisite: All of our classes are intended to serve as continuing education for massage therapists. All students must be licensed, certified, authorized, or otherwise credentialed to provide hands-on, manual therapy services in the state where they practice. All of our classes are approved by NCBTMB for CE hours. Most states accept NCBTMB hours. Some states may have different requirements or definitions of what is considered to be within the "Scope of Practice" for a massage therapist. If in doubt, please check with your state's Board of Massage. In some instances, advanced-level courses may have additional prerequisites that will be noted in the course description. 


All of our classes have minimum and maximum enrollments that can be accepted. If a class is getting close to being full, we may close online enrollment.
