Training in complementary therapy (KT)

Training in complementary therapy (KT), the method Craniosacral Therapy (CST) and the specialization in Craniosacral Biodynamics

In these modules we will practically explore the nature of complementary therapy and how the view of the KT-profession can be implemented in the existing practice and skills.

We will explore the specific attitude that is required to create the therapeutic connection with clients that are unique to the profession.

The interactive and empirically oriented teachings give new depth to the orientation to Health and salutogenesis as guiding principles.

Through dialogue and meaningful encounters, we experience how resources and resilience can be fostered to empower clients in their recovery skills.

The practical verbal aspects serve to explore the client’s potential and allow for a process that leads them to greater self-awareness and self-regulation.

The practical work on the treatment table is dedicated to the principles of craniosacral biodynamics. There we will explore the orientation to the Health and the cooperation with the Potency of the Tide, which correspond to the salutogenetic approaches of KT.

Each approach and principle are process-oriented, meaning that the therapists enable clients to perceive, sense and feel themselves, to be connected to themselves and to receive tools to implement their insights in everyday life.

The terminology of KT is practiced and filled with content that comes from experience.

These skills also serve the writing of the essay for the equivalency procedure for OdA KT.
