Tulsa, Okla. – Massage therapy (MT) instructors Ross Ashcraft (Department Head) and Sharon Truelove attended the Upledger’s Institute International workshop given in Oklahoma City, Okla., for four full days October 6, 7, 8 and 9 to learn Craniosacral Therapy.

“I was thrilled to experience first-hand the profound results of the gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system. It’s wonderful to experience, learn and pass on to others something so gentle and healing. It’s also used as a preventative health measure,” said Truelove.

Upon returning from the work shop both Ashcraft and Truelove introduced the modality to the MT class by way of using a still-point. A still-point places the client’s head resting in the therapist’s hands in a particular way that acts like a reset button to the Craniosacral system. The students loved learning how to do a still-point and, better yet, receiving it.

“It is amazing how such a powerful transformation can happen because of such small efforts,” said Ashcraft.

The Massage Therapy Department is planning to make Craniosacral Therapy a part of their continuing education program in the near future.

The Massage Therapist plays an important role in the growing healthcare fields of preventative healthcare, sports and wellness systems. Students of the CCC MT program learn anatomy and physiology of the body as it relates to soft tissue injury and treatment. Students engage in supervised hands-on training in traditional Swedish massage and other modalities such as hydrotherapy, sports massage, clinical protocols, chair massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, lymphatic massage, and therapeutic spa treatments.
