CST Basic Elements 2

BE2: The Cranium

18 CEUs, $498, Pre-requisite: BE1 or equivalent training

This three-day class is a continuation of fundamental aspects of craniosacral therapy and builds on knowledge and applications learned in BE1, now focusing on the cranium and intracranial membranes. These topics will be discussed:

  • anatomy, palpation and treatment methodology of the cranial vault
  • meningeal membranes, cranial nerves
  • use of the cranial bones as handles to manually influence the fluid dynamics and reciprocal tension mechanisms of the craniosacral system
  • relationship of prominent facial bones to the cranial vault

The attending student--combining knowledge and skills acquired in this class and BE1--will be able to do a more thorough assessment of the craniosacral system and facilitate therapeutic change in the intracranial membranes that surround the central nervous system.
