About Us: CST Alliance Faculty
Roy Desjarlais, L.M.T., CST-D
Licensed Massage Therapist
Craniosacral Therapy Practitioner and Instructor
Owner, Center for CranioSacral Therapy, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Roy Desjarlais is a licensed massage therapist with over 24 years of experience. He took his first craniosacral therapy course in 1987 where it proceeded to change his life. Roy decided to leave his job as a graphic designer and obtain his massage license so he could practice CST full time. He then worked for two years in an orthopedic rehabilitation clinic applying CST to pre- and post-surgery patients and trauma patients. Roy then opened his CST clinic where he successfully treated a wide variety of acute, chronic, pediatric, and neurological disorders. In 1994 Roy was invited by Dr. John Upledger to work in the Upledger clinic. Over a period of 15 years at the Upledger Institute he was a clinician, instructor, curriculum developer, instructor ombudsman, certification developer and examiner, and finally Vice President of Clinical Services. He has developed CST classes and taught nationally and internationally for 20 years. Roy owned the Center for CranioSacral Therapy in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, which attracted a full-time patient load from all over Florida, the United States and overseas. 
Sheryl has been an occupational therapist for over 25 years and has been practicing craniosacral therapy for over 20 years. Originally from Ohio, that is where she opened her first practice specializing in craniosacral therapy. In 1999, she moved to Florida to work at the Upledger Institute. During her 11 years there she worked as a clinician, instructor, instructor ombudsman, and certification examiner. She taught the beginning through advanced level classes nationally and internationally, and worked closely with Dr. John Upledger, co-teaching all of John's upper level classes with him the last year before he retired. A few years ago, Sheryl moved to Waxhaw, North Carolina, where she has started a new practice specializing in providing craniosacral therapy services for clients of all ages and conditions. She continues to teach and mentor students of craniosacral therapy and is currently involved in developing classes and clinical outcomes research projects.

Update 2016: Roy was one or our original CST Alliance staff members and teachers. He passed on suddenly in the spring of 2016. His wisdom, kindness, compassion and skill as teacher, colleague, clinician and friend remains  an important influence for us today. He reminds us that no matter what, "there will always be good in the world." It is in this inspiration and pure "Roy Wisdom" that, with family permission and deep gratitude for his continued presence in our lives, we maintain his CST Alliance faculty status as living memorial to a wonderful person.
