The Craniosacral Therapy Alliance (CST Alliance) was developed in 2009 to provide craniosacral therapy education and training. We are a group of teacher therapists who realized that students and therapists at the local level were looking for help in refining their skills, seeking answers to their treatment questions and searching for support with clinical considerations. We could see a real need for opportunities to study, trade sessions, teach and work together to share new and current craniosacral therapy (CST) experiences.
CST Alliance is a continuing education provider with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) #451232-10 and awards CEUs for all CSTA Curriculum classes.
We believe by teaching small groups of practitioners in local areas we can increase the availability of CST to the general public, as well as increase interest in CST instruction to a wider variety of practitioner. In this way we can all help heal each other in this troubled world.
The classes offered at CST Alliance are new and original but based on the traditional teachings of William G. Sutherland, D.O., and John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M. For all of us, John Upledger was our direct teacher. Our classes combine new anatomical study and theory moving forward principles taught by Sutherland and Upledger and their teachers, A.T. Still and Emmanuel Swedenborg.
Our classes are newly designed in content, format and structure to enable the student to absorb information and have precious supervised time to practice under the guidance of experienced clinicians. We also offer support for the student between classes to integrate what they have learned so they can better assimilate new information and skills as they move forward in the work.
All CST Alliance classes are taught by world-class craniosacral instructors who have decades of practical teaching and clinical experience.
Students from all over the U.S. and Canada attended our annual conference in September. Attendees shared and exchanged ideas and learned about the latest CST research; palpating cranial nerves; treating ourselves; and ethics. As you can see, smiles were everywhere! Thank you to all of those who attended. We are honored by your support and dedication to move CST forward!
