Cranial Sacral Therapies for Animals
July 25-26, 2015
Sturtevant, WI

Cranio-sacral technique is an excellent therapeutic modality for patients that are compromised or with advanced pathology. It is a very low intensity and amplitude technique that when applied correctly it can provide an overwhelming influence on not only the autonomic nervous system, but on the patient’s healing process.

Cranio-sacral technique will greatly improve your palpatory skills and provide you with another treatment modality to bring back the patient to full function (or as close as possible) without exceeding the metabolic rate of the patient.

National and international speaker Dr. Neal Sivula will be sharing over 30 years of experience utilizing this modality.
