Intracranial Membranes and Fluids

* The cost is £150 for each single online 2-day class, or if you book it as part of a bundle of 5 or more classes then they are reduced to £120 each.

Part of Craniosacral System Essentials or the set of 10 or 15 courses.

This is the second in our series of online courses and will move inwards from the cranial bones, diving deeper to the intracranial membranes so important to cranial work.

Then we will swim through the ventricles in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), understand the blood supply and venous drainage to / from the head and brain and how all these aspects are inter-related.

Recent developments in CSF research in this field will be included so you will feel you are up-to-date with current understanding.

But most importantly we will make all of this relevant to what you might feel with your hands when working with cranial techniques.

You will also get:

  • Workbook

    A workbook to print out before the online class and use during it as well as afterwards for review

  • Handouts

    Print the slides we will refer to and annotate during the teaching time or access them afterwards to remind you what we learned

  • Recording

    You will get the zoom link to join the online class plus access to the recording of your class which students find excellent for review

What we will cover:

  • We will explore the different layers of the meninges and how and where they attach

    Why are they even called dura, arachnoid and pia, how are they different, and what is important about they way they cover the brain and the spinal cord?

  • What spaces these meninges enable and why this is important

    Understand the dural sinuses, the routes they house for venous return and cerebrospinal fluid drainage, and how this continues outside of the head...

  • Discover the intricate details of how blood gets to our brains

    Which are the arteries that deliver and the why do they take such curious routes into our craniums!

  • This class will help you consolidate your understanding

    We will also incorporate as much hands on participation and interaction as possible - this will be by using zoom's amazing 'breakout rooms' where you can chew over aspects of the material with your fellow students, answer questions or complete tasks that are set; by using the workbooks so we can actively label diagrams and create notes together; and by answering the questions I put to you all - even if you are on mute!
