Sunday, September 23, 2018 – 10 am-5 pm

with Dr. Jeff Rockwell, MA, DC, DOMP

Class will include a brief review of the autonomic nervous system and the Polyvagal Theory. Discussions on new neuro-activities for shifting the autonomic nervous system states to your advantage.

While the class includes hands on procedures, they are simple and can be learned by anyone with an experience in bodywork – both receiving and giving.

These techniques are ideal to use in any style of manual therapy practice. Even if you are not a practitioner, but are interested in developing your healthiest nervous system, practicing these techniques on others will strengthen your social engagement system and, additionally, you can perform most of these techniques on yourself.

Gentle nerve techniques (Dermo-neuro-modulation and Neuro-dynamics) for all five cranial nerves that comprise the social engagement system. In other words, you will learn how to treat the various branches of the trigeminal nerve, the facial nerve, the glossopharyngeal nerve, both the ventral and dorsal vagus nerves, and the accessory nerve.

That’s a lot to learn in one day, but I guarantee we will have a lot of fun learning together. And at such a beautiful place – Sausalito Healing Arts, right on the Schoonmaker waterfront marina. Longer, two day workshops will be offered  October 13-14, and November 10-11. (therapists/practitioners of any kind) wanting to utilize Polyvagal approaches in their practices. This one-day class, September 23, will be a prerequisite for entry into the longer, more advanced workshops.
