The Teachings of Dr Sutherland Part 1:

An Introduction to the Primary Respiratory Mechanism

This course is the first of a two part series that will allow you to understand and utilise the teachings of Dr. William Garner Sutherland. This course will be a pre-requisite for future courses such as Part 2 of this series and Cranio-Dental 1 & 2. 

What better way is there to celebrate summer than spending it in this stunning location, directly between tea tree lakes and the stunning beachside of Lennox Head, NSW. 

Course Directors: George Stylian and Dion Kulak

Date: Friday 24th to Sunday 26th February, 2017

Location: Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre, Lennox Head, NSW.

With a strong emphasis on practical application, we will look at:

•    the cranial base

•    palpation of cranial base strains

•    the treatment of the occiput and the vault 

•    venous sinus drainage

•    palpation and treatment of the corelink and how it affects the three diaphragms

•    assessment and treatment of the pelvis and upper cervicals

You will learn Dr Sutherland's integrative approach to treatment of these areas using techniques such as Osteopathy in the Cranial Field and Balanced Ligamentous Tension. This course will be followed by Part 2 on Friday 28th to Sunday 30th April 2017 which will look further into the growing child, the cranial base and the face as taught by Dr. Sutherland.
