Overview of Craniosacral Therapy

This is an opportunity to sample the Upledger Institute’s CranioSacral Therapy 1 (CS1) workshop studied by more than 125,000 healthcare practitioners worldwide. This six-hour program is a mix of lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice designed to teach you the benefits of CST along with some basic techniques you can use in practice and for your own health.

In this class, you will develop and/or refine your light-touch palpation skills by learning how to palpate and evaluate the craniosacral rhythm, a subtle physiological movement affecting the entire body. You will also learn how to locate subtle restrictions in the connective tissue system and correct those restrictions using gentle myofascial techniques.

Core benefits

Refine light touch palpation skills and basic myofascial unwinding techniques.
