"The lymphatics are closely and universally connected with the spinal cord and all other nerves, long or short, universal or separate and all drink from the waters of the brain."

Photos from our November 2017 Craniosacral-Lymphatic Integration Class:
The "Craniosacral-Lymphatic Integration (CLI) (TM) class from Don Ash is a three-day class for craniosacral therapy practitioners with a desire to enhance their practice with the knowledge and skills to integrate basic lymphatic manual technique into their CST treatment and practice.
In light of new and evolving research being published and appearing on sites such as www.CerebrospinalFluidResearch.com -- it is important that we explore and learn basic techniques in lymphatic drainage in order to enhance CSF re-absorption and make the Craniosacral System more efficient and our CST treatment more effective and complete. Note that the above-referenced website is "Fluids and Barriers of the CNS" an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers manuscripts on all CNS fluids and barrier systems in health and disease. It is affiliated with the International Brain Barriers Society (IBBS) and the International Society for Hydrocephalus and CSF Disorders (ISHCSF).

"What a wonderful health-giving three days Don and Sheryl provided. I was expecting a lot and got much more. Don did a masterful job teaching Craniosacral-Lymphatic Integration making it easy to understand and blend into my practice. I was blessed to be his demo on Sunday and experience first hand his Intention and Integration of CST and MLD that blended into an amazing Somatic Emotional Process. Then to put this experience into practice with Don's hands touching my hands and fellow student at the same time with feedback from both was very reinforcing. A very special Thanks to Don for making this Integration so easy and effective. My first client Monday, a long-time lover of this work, finished the treatment feeling her "Body of Water" and was still talking about "Water Wheels" and "Water Bars" as she was leaving our office. Don Ash is an incredible teacher that I will think about every day. Thanks from every drop of water in my body."
