Theme 2020: Cranio as Connecting Field

Unlike other fields, craniosacral therapy has not yet received the research attention it deserves. This conference aims to provide an international and interdisciplinary platform for researchers and healthcare practitioners (incl. CS therapists, osteopaths, physiotherapists, physicians) to present and discuss academic research, clinical studies as well as best practices in the field of craniosacral therapy and adjacent fields, such as fascia, vagus nerve, cranial osteopathy, etc.

With our theme “Cranio as connecting field”, we invite you to participate in the debate about how craniosacral therapy is able to connect different fields of knowledge and practices together.
