  • perception of the craniosacral rhythm
  • knowledge and delivery of manual CST techniques

The attending student will be able to immediately apply basic CST methods to their practice that facilitate therapeutic change in the fascia of the body and the peripheral nervous system. In addition to practitioners, parents and sponsors of children and other loved ones with special needs can learn a safe, simple therapeutic touch that can be of help to those on a healing journey.
