About Elemental CranioSacral Work 1

21 CEs  NCBTMB

  In this training, Brian will guide you through the pathways of the Central Nervous System and the Cranial Nerves.  You will learn various CranioSacral "holds" to free the cranial nerves and allow the nervous system to return to balance.  

  Brian has developed this particular way of working with the foundations of CranioSacral Therapy blending his many years of practice and research and his own connection to nature.  Students who have studied with him say his course is a perfect balance of the academic and ethereal.  

  If you are looking for new ways to approach your clients' nervous systems, to hold space for their healing with clinically proven techniques for accessing the CNS, this course is for you!

NC LMBT #13797, NCBTMB Provider #858336

Brian Loftin (LMBT 13797) has been in private practice since graduating from the Florida School of Massage in 2003. Not long after this, he began studying Visionary CranioSacral Work with Hugh Milne, author of the Heart of Listening, and a 3rd generation Scottish Osteopath. Brian began assisting Hugh in his work, helping to teach classes up to and after he became certified in the work in 2010. Since this time, Brian has studied Biodynamic Cranial Touch, Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy with Charles Ridley, Active Dreamwork with Robert Moss, the Feldenkrais Method with Paul and Julie C. Rubin, Visceral Manipulation, graduated from the Spirit of Learning Teacher Training Program at the Body Therapy Institute, participated in Gil Hedley’s 6 day Human Dissection Lab (where he got to fully dissect the brain, cranial nerves, and spinal cord on his own!), and is now enrolled in the Holistic Herbalism Program at the Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine. He has been teaching his own unique blend of most of these experiences since 2012. He has this essential takeaway from all of these learnings: that we are inseparable from our own internal and external Nature, that healing doesn’t come from without, but within, and that the powers that made, nourish, and sustain the human being is far greater and edifying than any obstacle that may seek to fracture it. 

Brian’s greatest passion is to gently connect people to the subtle stories that reside within us all, that stir our feelings, urge us onward, and compel us to embody our human experience in profound and magical ways. He combines effective, compassionate techniques with a Taoist principle of non-doing and non-attachment, effectively achieving a natural flow with and within his clients’ fields of being. As Robin Williams’ character said in the movie Patch Adams, “You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you’ll win.”
