We are hosting PRI Cranial Resolution at ProActive
October 14-15, 2023
ProActive will be hosting Cranial Resolution at our facility. This advanced course focuses on how our cranial structures, the cerebral, mid brain and cerebellar regions, that are responsible for underlying ANS tension and CNS tone, can be self-regulated through oscillatory integration of rhythmic function and alternating cycles of sense (midbrain disorders such as Parkinson's Disease). Discussion and demonstration on how postural adaptation to compensatory patterning can be resolved through lateralization of neural rhythms. Jennifer Smart will be teaching the course.
