CST Basic Elements 3

BE3: The Anterior Cranium

18 CEUs, $498, Pre-requisite: BE2 or equivalent training

This class moves the understanding of the structural continuum of the craniosacral system forward. We learn the bones of the face and the hard palate, their individual movement and their relationship to each other and the cranium as a whole. We will explore in detail the sphenoid, highly regarded as the keystone of the cranium by William G. Sutherland, D.O. We will study Sutherland's work regarding the aberrant movement patterns of the sphenoid and its reflection throughout the craniosacral system. The attending student now has a complete working knowledge of the craniosacral mechanism and all of the structures directly affecting it. The student will be able to apply the principles of light touch, intention and tissue release to facilitate the body's ability to heal itself.

Suggested reading: "Lessons From the Sessions, Reflections of Journeys in Craniosacral Therapy" by Don Ash, PT, CSTA-CP-I, Introduction by John Upledger

In this book Don Ash presents a collection of essays on clinical lessons learned from his patients as a definition of CST for the patient and as a clinical example for the therapist. Written in 2005 and still highly recommended by patients and therapists who have said "It's a great read!" It's not mandatory to take the class, just suggested.
