4.     CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY
       Presenters: Duffy Sweatman, Claire Waumsley

       We are all familiar with the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Like them, the
       craniosacral system also influences many body functions. An imbalance in this system
       can adversely affect the brain and spinal cord which can result in sensory, motor and
       intellectual dysfunction.

       In this course Duffy Sweatman and Claire Waumsley introduce you to the anatomy and
       physiology of this system and present you with some basic hands-on techniques to use in
       your practices.

       THIS EXCITING NEW COURSE HAS BEEN ACCREDITED WITH CPD POINTS.

             FUNCTIONAL SPINAL STABILITY VIDEO
     -The OMTG has bought two copies of this video produced by Helen Jones

                                        It is entitled:

     “FUNCTIONAL SPINAL STABILITY – A PHYSIOTHERAPY
                         HOME
                  EXERCISE PROGRAMME”

This video aims to:
 Improve awareness of neutral spinal posture;
                                       6



    Facilitate use of spinal stabilising muscles in a variety of postures;
    Demonstrate maintenance of neutral spine and postural muscle tone with
    the addition
     of load such as limb movements or weights.

                                      and

                           DIANE LEE’S VIDEO

       IMAGERY FOR CORE STABILISATION
 This video is one on the assessment and treatment of pelvic impairment
                                     using
 core stabilisation. She recognises that the exercise programme needs to
be individually prescribed since not everyone has the same motor control
                                   patterns.
