Healing Hands is a retreat intended for learning, healing and growth.
Study Craniosacral Therapy while restoring mind, body and spirit nestled in the magical riverside jungle of Koh Phangan, Thailand.

Together, we move through the fundamentals of Craniosacral Level 1, understanding how to work on both ourselves and
others while strengthening our connection to intuition.

Journey with us in Thailand through 7 nights of renewal of spirit, energy and community.

It is through this process of healing ourselves that we may ultimately heal others.

THE EXPERIENCE

Craniosacral Therapy Level 1 with Kari Toft
In this certification course, study Craniosacral Therapy by learning and understanding the different teachings of this healing modality, combining both Upledger and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapies. Certificate provided upon completion.

Yoga and Breathwork with Jamie Lee Mock
Yin yoga, breath work and guided intuitive practices will be held to deepen our connection to our physical bodies as well as our intuition. This understanding and connection to self will lead to a heightened experience when practicing Craniosacral Therapy on others.

Nourishing Thai Meals
Let your body be nourished and supported by delicious and nutrient-packed meals prepared by resident chef at The Yoga House.
Two vegetarian meals will be provided each day, with the third meal available to students from the wide array of local restaurants in town.

THE CERTIFICATION

Craniosacral-based treatment is now one of the most successful and fastest-growing approaches to mind-body healing.
It’s both a medical system with precise anatomical criteria and a therapeutic art requiring the practitioner to feel, interpret and move energy.  Craniosacral Therapy is a form of manual therapy that goes so much deeper than the physical body.

This is soul work.

We are holistic beings and if one aspect of ourselves is out of balance or experiencing dysfunction, Craniosacral can be a helpful healing modality. Expect to have your mind blown.

THE COURSEWORK

Combining both Upledger and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, we will learn to work with the cranial rhythm,
pelvic and respiratory diaphragms, thoracic inlet and hyoid bone.

Learn to work with both osseous and membraneous restrictions while identifying and releasing restrictions at the sacrum, in the dural tube and within the bones of the skull.

An in-depth introduction to Anatomy will be covered:
Frontal Bone, Temporals, Sphenoid, Parietals, Occiput, TMJ and more.

By the end of Level 1, students will have the skills and techniques to compete a 10-step protocol.

Students will receive a booklet and a certificate upon completion.

THE PROGRAM

Mornings begin with intention, moving through a yin yoga practice, breathwork and time by the warm ocean.

We then move into the Craniosacral Therapy Certification Coursework followed by time enjoying the exotic land.
Each evening, we gather together to share and connect.

During your free time, we highly encourage rest and relaxation. 
This is a wonderful time to be present in nature, reflect, swim, stargaze, relax in quietude,
receive healing treatments, unwind oceanside or simply be.
