Integrated Cranial Health(TM) is a neurological system where we teach you how to neurologically monitor and change the direction of neurological messaging. It provides a simple manual system for one to monitor and change the nervous system for ease in function and elimination of pain. It looks at the person as both the object of function that can be changed as well as the subject from within which allows it to incorporate function of the self through its' own power.
The class teaches the Caregiver or person experiencing chronic pain techniques to heal their pain from a neurological level on a daily basis. Many of us are dependent on a manual therapist to keep our systems in constant communication and out of pain. The neurological techniques allow control and redirection over pain signals through the body so that the client and Caregiver can help heal the nervous system from home. Carolynn Thompson devotes most of her time to private clients in her practice, and this class stemmed from the systems she used to keep and eliminate chronic pain. Having worked with quads, brain injuries, debilitated movement and more over her 15 plus year history, this class was crafted to take the neural direction she provides clients in her private sessions to more people so they can become active helpers in their own healing.
The class explores the movements and relationships of the cranial bones. Demonstrations include how to release bones through pressurized sutures, correlations to the Trigeminal nerve and provides cranial nerve assessment among paired releases and releases found in the adjustment of threes.
Class meets Saturday from 930-500pm and Sunday from 9-4pm

We give therapist confidence in touching the spine and combining it successfully with what they know.

Over the years, schools, instructors and other therapist have asked Carolynn to teach classes on EHS, emotional balancing, mental awareness, meditation and nutritional advice.

Carolynn does not perform private orifice release in her practice. However, she has in the past and has trained in it through apprenticeship. She shares her skills and knowledge with those interested, and sets up the class based on the need presented. It is most often requested by sex therapist. Max class size is 12.
Carolynn is highly aware of the needs of desk workers and organizations to eliminate and reduce insurance claims. Working in the health service side, she is an expert at presenting information and providing display material for a healthy work environment. She does not measure and use traditional HS standards.
