So, i had a massage interview for a chiropractic office yesterday(and landed it, booyah!). But in chatting with the chiropractor, he mentioned cranio-sacral therapy and had nothing but good things to say about it.
This seriously keeps coming up for me so I'm curious to learn more about it now. Anyone practice this type of therapy? Know anyone who does? What sort of results do you see? How much does it cost to be trained typically(and how long)? Is it worth it?
I know a few of the members practice both of these modalities and I am looking for some more information.
What should I be looking for in a program that teaches these modalities?
What are the certifications needed?
I am looking at using these plus cranial sacral in my business. I am planning to do massage for PTSD (Iraq Vets mainly) using cranial, Multiple Sclerosis ( reflexology, my sister who has MS gets a lot of benefit from this) and acupressure for general health. I would like to hear from people who specialize in these types of clients to see the best way to go about getting clients and what special situations have arisen in your practices that I may come across.
Any stories or information would be greatly appreciated. I am taking the NCBTMB test as soon sometime in January (waiting on letter to register) and will be taking a Cranial Sacral class in June if all goes well.
I thought I would introduce myself. I am a registered massage therapist who lives and works in Ottawa ontario canada. I have been practicing for just over 2 years. I do mostly therapeutic massages, deep tissue, active release techniques.
This looks like a fascinating group, with a ton of information. I look forward to getting to know people, and learning more... always more to learn
I just learned you have to be certified in every massage technique individually. Swedish, deep tissue, so on. True, right? But when you go to Spas they claim you can get a wide variety. So my question is do they hire a different person for each, or do they allow you to do different techniques?
