Understanding and palpating the Cranium: Birth process and its consequences.

In the lecture we will deepen our knowledge in the palpation the of the skull. We will take the newborn cranium as a model, and we will use the understanding of the birth process to help us understand different palpatory qualities.
The aim of the lecture is to open new possibilities to develop good listening skills applied to the bone tissue that could be used to approach patients from the Cranial Model Perspective.

Tensegrity, Mechanotransduction and Interoception: the five loops of somatic dysfunction

During the presentation we will analyze a new paradigm of the neurophysiology of osteopathic treatment.  We will ask ourselves questions ending with a group work in which we will discuss two specific clinical derivations from this new perspective: somato-emotional liberation, the role of the psycho-neuro-inmuno-endocrinological system.
