Dora Franco, B.Sc., D.O., BI-D, ( www.terapia-sacrocraniana.blogspot.com ) completed the Course CranioSacral Dissection, which was developed by Dr. Upledger and coordinated with the assistance of Clarence Nicodemus, PhD, ND, RMT, of the University of Texas Medical Branch.
This workshop was designed to offer CranioSacral practicioners the unique experience of evaluating restrictions prior to dissection. Once the dissection occured therapists could then visually and tactilly explore the areas evaluated.
Additionally, therapists were able to apply craniosacral techniques to the cadaver and feel tissue changes externally and internally.
The last but not the least, I got myself the opportunity to do actual dissection under the instructor's supervision. All cadavers have been untouched by "fixing" agents thereby allowing for an experience as close to working with live tissue as possible.
- Observe cranial dissections on an unembalmed cadaver.
- View and work with the entire dural tube and the cerebella.
- Observe dissection of the Avenue of Expression and thoracic inlet.
- And also explore the thorax and abdomen.
