What is CranioSacral Therapy
CST is manual technique that uses light touch and profound intention in order to help detect and treat physical and emotional tensions at their root.

This course is aimed at any health professionals or students (osteopaths, physiotherapists, psychologists, chiropractors, holistic therapists, massage therapists, doctors, nurses, midwives, etc.), and people who are interested in (physical or emotional) health.

Module I (Introduction to CranioSacral Therapy):

We will see the foundations necessary to understand the anatomy and function of the cranio sacral system** and the basic techniques needed to evaluate and treat. Students will learn techniques to release the fascia and soft tissues, and a 10-step protocol to assess and treat the whole body. In the course there will be a good balance between theory, demonstration and supervised practice.

  • Anatomy and Function of the cranio sacral system
  • Cranio sacral rhythm.
  • Fascia as a global body system.
  • Techniques to release the pelvic floor, respiratory diaphragm, thoracic inlet, hyoid bone and cranial base.
