Introduction to CST

Introduction to CST

Do any of these sound familiar?

  • You're a bodywork therapist, and you're curious about CranioSacral Therapy. You've heard great things about the results that people have experienced, and you'd like to try it for yourself. But you're not quite ready to invest huge amounts of money or time in training until you know more about it.
  • You're a Massage Therapist, Physical Therapist, or Occupational Therapist, and you need some Continuing Education credits to renew your credentials. You don't want to take just any course, though; you want to learn about something you're genuinely interested in.
  • Your child, spouse, or someone you love receives CranioSacral Therapy treatment, and the results have been amazing. You wish you knew more about it so that you could use some of the techniques to help your loved one at home between treatments.
  • You're a healthcare practitioner who would like to learn about CranioSacral Therapy. Maybe you've even taken a CST seminar, but it was ages ago, and you feel like you forgot most of what you learned. You don't want to go back to take the class over, but you would love a refresher course.

If any of these sound familiar, then the
