Originally written in 2010, and updated for 2015, this book is a teaching manual designed to be a ready reference to accompany the study guides of each class. It includes anatomy and easy-to-follow pictures of hand placements as well as details about the basic manual techniques. It also includes new and updated definitions for terms like arcing, energy cyst, release, blending and presence. Don wrote this book to honor the work of Upledger, Sutherland and the Biodynamics model.
2015 revisions include: new, original diagrams of the cranial membranes, the exiting CSF from the spinal nerve ganglia, our classic diagram of the rhythms of the body--made famous from our "What is CST?" poster--the new and exciting hand placements for the frontal lift technique and our original thoughts on progressive technique methodology of the "Unfolding Balance of the Craniosacral System." We have also included new narratives about: thinking out of the box; how to set intention; and technique order and progression while still respecting the presentation of the body.

Breath Venting: A Simple Guide to Body Awareness and Tension Release by Way of Breath
by Sarah Ash and Don Ash, P.T., CSTA-CP
Body of Water, Ocean of Mind: Essays on the Fluid Dynamics of Craniosacral Work by Don Ash, P.T.
In this, Don Ash's latest book written in 2011, he explores the dimensions of fluid consciousness of the waters of the brain (cerebrospinal fluid or "CSF") offering new insights about directing intention in CST. He presents new anatomic detail and research to support his view and acknowledges the historic contributions of the founders of CST from Swedenborg, Still and Sutherland to Upledger.
This is an audio presentation on breath meditation as a way of clearing tensions and stress from the body. This simple practice provides patients with a tool to use as a wonderful self-help technique between sessions of CST or anytime a stressor appears in their lives. This is a great way to lead the patient to independence and a better quality of life.
