"CST Handbook: Basic Elements in Craniosacral Work" by Don Ash, PT, CSTA-CP

This publication is required text for the CST Basic Elements 1 class. You can either pick the book up your first day of class ($25) or have it shipped to you in advance for an additional $5 ($30) within the U.S. Please click the button below to select the shipped or not-shipped price. 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. Revisions from 2015 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.
