Advanced craniosacral therapy seminar on the gut microbiome

Advanced seminar for craniosacral therapists and cranial osteopaths

How might orienting to the gut microbiome support digestive health, restful sleep and psychological wellbeing? We will explore pathways of communication between the gut microbiome and the central nervous system, known as the 'microbiome-gut-brain

complex. Through this lens, we will look at common scenarios in clinical practice, including digestive issues, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), as well as sleep disruption, stress, trauma, depression and anxiety. The primary focus will be the application of this understanding in craniosacral practice. This seminar deepens into material from previous classes while remaining accessible to those new to the subject.

By the end of the seminar, you will be able to:

• Confidently describe the communication pathways of the microbiome-gut-brain complex and apply this knowledge in craniosacral treatment.

• Assess meaningful craniosacral interventions to support digestive health and psychological wellbeing.

• Understand digestive issues commonly seen in clinical practice, including IBS, SIBO and celiac disease.

• Discuss the relevance of the gut microbiome in anxiety, depression, sleep disruption, Adverse Childhood Experiences and PTSD.

• Explore the two-way relationships between the gut microbiome and the stress response system, including the role of the vagus nerve.

• Recognise the relationships between the gut microbiome, sleep and circadian rhythms (body clock).

• Orient to the microbiome-gut-brain complex and the gall bladder in craniosacral treatment.
