Introduction to Craniosacral Massage
Brandy Bilkovich, LMT
License: WA MA00012256
With Brandy Bilkovich, LMT
Tuesday, April 25th, 10-2 PM 4 CE's
Massage has been a part of Brandy's life since I she 6 weeks old. Her mother and pediatrician thankfully understood the benefits massage would have on her overall health. This early experience, combined with the desire to help others inspired her to get her massage license in 1999. She would say that her massage style is geared to treatment massage, whether that is treatment to quiet the mind and body or treatment to alleviate pain and dysfunction.
She has more than 20 years of experience as a Massage Instructor and has taught all subject matters, She's also been able to write Massage Curriculum for Massage Schools around the country.
Craniosacral massage is a gentle technique that helps balance the Cranio Sacral Fluid (CSF) throughout our Central Nervous System. By tapping into the waves of CSF, the practitioner can help guide the client into a deeper state of relaxation and balance throughout the body. Brandy is excited to share some techniques you can add to your table routine immediately after taking her class.

With the use of cupping, therapists will lift tissues instead of pushing on them. This simple tool has many benefits, including improved localized tissue circulation, tender and trigger point release, stress relief and increased fascial plasticity.
Each student will receive a set of 6 silicone massage cups to take home and start using right away in your practice!
Learn how to add dynamic cupping to your table massage, in a variety of areas and for different reasons. This is a fantastic self care tool for LMT's forearms, shoulders and tight fascial bands.
