Vaajma cranio training
Our study program is not only a comprehensive therapist education, but an opportunity to make the biggest and most important journey you have ever made:
- The journey home to your own heart.
Craniosacral work is a natural and holistic healing method based on the use of intuitive skills and conscious touch. We listen deeply, move energy and spirit, make small adjustments of bone structure, work directly with central nervous system, muscles and connective tissue and interact with the body's own intelligence, with the intention of personal and spiritual growth, and to bring the body, mind and soul back to health and balance.
About the education
About the education
The cranioacral education is an in-depth module-based education over 2 years part-time, with 9 modules of 4 days each. The entire education is designed as a personal journey and healing process with the goal that you will find the most authentic version of yourself in the process.
The education is based on craniosacral work, which is a natural and holistic healing tradition that stretches back many thousands of years. We find traces of this type of work in ancient traditions all over the globe.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the modality was assembled into a modern holistic system by the bioenergetic genius and visionary William Garner Sutherland. Later, several different craniosacral modalities have arisen from his students and their students again. At our academy, we embrace them all. For us it is not about the technique that is use, but how we use them.
In craniosacral work, we listen deeply to the rhythms of the soul, move energy and spirit, make small adjustments in the bone structure. We work directly with the cerebrospinal fluid, central nervous system, membranes, muscles and connective tissue, and interact with the body's own intelligence, with the intention of personal growth, to bring body, mind and soul back to good health and balance.
At our academy, we have a shamanistic basic philosophy, where contact with inner and outer nature is fundamental. In addition to craniosacral techniques, shamanic work and basic philosophy, sensitive touch, the art of listening, reading people's bodies, energy fields and psyche, you will learn to develop your own sensitivity and intuitive abilities.
We work on developing resilience, finding inner strength, joy, silence and deep calm through touch, meditation practice, breathing, yoga and other practices that bring you into contact with your soul's potential.

"For me, the studyprogram has had a wonderful balance between theory and practice. Both inside and outside the classroom, as well as in life in general, this has incorporated itself in a very natural way along my path. I have grown enormously in these two years, but the most important lesson I'm left with is that I already had all the knowledge inside me.
All I needed were the tools to get there."
"I have gained a deeper insight into life than I have ever tought was possible. I have learned most from my own intuition, but would never have understood the connection without Kjetil's guidance and advice. I am so grateful that he has given enough individual freedom trough the training so have been able to follow my own path"
"Kjetil is a fantastic good , friend, teacher and mentor. I can recommend this training wholeheartedly. He is a good and dedicated teacher in line with his destiny. Kjetil is genuine, a two-year training with him will change your life for ever"
"Everything is completely different. I know who I am Now and what I'm going to do. I'm open, see more clearly, o am well grounded and have an inner security that endures a lot more than before. I'm extremely grateful."
The training has been an incredible journey. I have learned to listen with my hands and to trust that with the help of simple techniques and by being present, I can help people to initiate healing processes within themselves. In In addition, I have learned an enormous amount about myself and experienced the power of cranio treatment. Nothing is the same as before. Fortunately".
"The combination of listening, reading, trial and error and receiving treatment has been very important.
Kjetil sees everyone. Is humble, but at the same time dares to be honest and challenge when it feels right.
Caring and clear. Funny.

How many students?
Minimum 10 and max 22 students per class. During each module, there will also be at least 1 assistant teacher per 5 students to ensure good follow-up and quality of teaching.
Practice evenings every second weekend during from September to June at our clinic in Strømmen, where students can come and practice and go through techniques together. After 2 modules you will have enough tools to start practicing on clients on a private basis. Otherwise, students practice and study at their own pace between the modules. It is recommended to set aside a few hours each week for practice and study. To succeed and integrate the techniques and become a good therapist, you should practice techniques for at least 10 sessionsand recieve at least two session yourself from fellow students or teachers of the academy between each module.
As a student at our academy, you get access to a network of students, experienced therapists and healers, who support and cheer on you along the way. A closed facebook group is created for the student group, where you can share information, your experiences and processes with fellow students. Together we are strong!
Personal process or certification track
Many students take the training primarily for their own healing and growth. To work with oneself, and to acquire a deeper understanding of oneself and life. If you choose to join the journey primarily for your own part, and not to become a professional healer, then you do not need to practice on clients between sessions and have your 160 hours of self study documented. You do not have to decide whether to become a therapist or not until second year of the training. Many experience that the knowledge and methods they learn during the training can easily be implemented in other types of work and in other parts of life.
If you choose thecertification track you have to take an individual exam when you are ready for it after you have completed 8 modules . Exam costs are 2500, - and include a theoretical home exam. Once you have passed the theoretical exam, we will arrange a practical exam where you will work on a client with a teacher present to assess your academic land intuitive level. To take the exam, you must have also received at least 10 craniosacral treatments outside the study sessions from a teacher or a craniosacral practitioner approved by the academy. (ask for list). You must also be able to document 160 hours of self-study and 50 practice sessions on clients. (this applies to everything from, treatments you give or receive from others , time you set aside to read the syllabus and immerse yourself in the subject).
What if you miss a module?
If you miss a module, you can take it later at the next opportunity at your place of study or other places where we run the training.
After completing all 8 modules, you will receive a course certificate for all 8 modules. After completing and passing the exam, you will receive a diploma that shows that you are an approved craniosacral therapist.
Can I work as an approved therapist after graduation?

But we need to talk to you and make an assessment of it before we accept you as a student. This is because of your and other students' safety is important to us, and that we want to create a safe atmosphere at the training for everyone.
The entire course of study is set up as a self-development process where you are guided through a process with the goal of finding your strengths and weaknesses, healing yourself and your family line, and developing yourself both as a human being and as a soul, finding your authentic self and becoming a greater resource than you are today, both for yourself, your loved ones and society. The techniques and methods that we use along the way are ancient and well-proven and are good foundations in both modern science and in the way shamans and healers have worked for millennia. At the same time, there is room for renewal and individual approaches.
