Course Details

This course requires a minimum of BE1 and BE2 (or CST 1 if taken by Upledger or McKeel Seminars). It is also useful for those with more advanced cranial training. It is a hands-on course with plenty of table time and a chance to see our mechanical CST components put into clinical use and how we can end up “stacking” these techniques.

The course begins with an introduction to Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory and its relevance to all therapies, including CST. Polyvagal theory shows an integrated and synergistic system with both parties working together in the service of survival and thriving, rather than the classical interpretation of an antagonistic relationship between the sympathetic and parasympathetic.

systems. A heart rate variability app is introduced to allow the therapists to measure autonomic change pre- and post-craniosacral therapy.

Orthopedic assessment including extremity scans, are introduced, and reviewed to allow the therapist to integrate orthopedic assessment, craniosacral assessment, and fascial assessment into pre- and post-treatment to show more objective measures/signs of craniosacral treatment sessions. A client is assessed and treated in front of the class demonstrating the integration of these orthopedic, cranial, and fascial assessment tools before and after treatment. The client is brought in for day two and three of the course to see treatment changes during this period as well as the integration process. It also allows the therapist to see how we take the structural components taught in the BE1 and BE2 course (CST1 if taken by Upledger or McKeel Seminars) and begin to learn how to follow the lines of tension in the body for an actual injury or dysfunction.

Quantum physics is introduced to allow for a better understanding of the energetic changes (signs of release) that occur during craniosacral sessions and the potential for somato-emotional processes (SEP) occurring which is a natural lead into the SE1 and SE2 courses taught through CSTAlliance.

This is a good way to review and gather the mechanical components of CST or answer clinical questions that you have from using CST. I hope you will join me.
