Cranial Structural Bodywork

is a National Board Certified Provider of continuing education for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and is an affiliate of Surgical Alternative, Inc and Carolina Structural Therapy LLC.  The organization was founded by Peggy Boyd LMT, CSBE,CSET, CCSP, (Surgical Alternative) and Greg Spindler, LMT, CSBE, CSET  (Carolina Structural Therapy) who have over 40 years combined experience learning, teaching and applying different cranial and bodywork techniques and their effective applications.  After speaking with many therapists past and present, that have been exposed to cranial or structural bodywork therapy,  who found to find the language and techniques  extremely difficult to understand. We knew that there was a more effective and easier way to learn and integrate cranial and bodywork techniques into your practice, so we created Cranial Structural Bodywork workshops to empower therapists and healthcare professional with highly effective and easily understood techniques.

What’s the difference between Cranial Structural Bodywork and other Cranial Therapy?

We teaching using an “active kinetic approach.”  We define Active Kinetic Approach as a way for the client to participate with therapy. Actively moving (kinetic) and releasing stuck, congested, muscular skeletal tissue directly (direction of difficulty) and indirectly (direction of ease) in different postural patterns. The body is constantly going into and out of postural patterns. However, at times the body can get stuck in patterns and even partial patterns. Therefore, treating soft tissue pain complaints with actively directly and indirectly can be beneficial for attaining faster results with cranial therapy and bodywork.

Our Cranial Structural Bodywork classes are hands-on, interactive, taught in familiar vernacular, easily understood and implemented on your next client. Our classes are designed for therapists  or healthcare professionals still in school and those more advanced. The information and skills learned in this class will have you feeling empowered and confident while allowing you to expand your practice by expanding the conditions you can effectively treat.
