This is an opportunity to sample the Upledger Institute’s Craniosacral Therapy course studied by more than 85,000 healthcare practitioners worldwide. The sixteen-hour introduction to craniosacral therapy is a mix of lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice designed to teach you the benefits of CST along with basic techniques you can use in practice and for your own health.
Please know that this is much more than an introduction to a particular technique. 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. Most important of all, you will learn to follow the body’s inner wisdom rather than always trying to control or direct it. The concepts and skills from this class can transform your practice and your life.

and could go away practicing what I had learned.”
