CS1: CranioSacral Therapy 1:
Assessment of Central Nervous System and
Fascia for Full Body Treatment Protocol

CS1 October 5-8, 2023
Charlotte, North Carolina

CranialSacral Touch applied to sub-occipital areaDiscover how CranioSacral Therapy (CST) works with the body’s natural rhythms to assist people with a variety of conditions. CST is unique — it helps identify the source and facilitates healing, leading to optimum health and vitality.

CranioSacral Therapy:

    • Assists in autonomic nervous system regulation to help to turn down sympathetic overdrive.
    • Addresses the interfaces of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, such as at the myodural bridge where tensions can be broadcast up and down the entire dural system.
    • Works with the body’s fascial network to improve representation in the somatosensory cortex.

Learn from the institute named for the developer of CranioSacral Therapy
Dr. John E. Upledger! After CS1 you will be able to immediately and easily integrate Dr. Upledger’s 10-Step Protocol into your practice.

Pre-requisite Workshop(s):
Professional healthcare practitioner, a student in a healthcare program or graduate awaiting licensure/accreditation with experience in sensitive, light-touch palpation.

For those who wish to take CS1, and live in a state or province that does not require a healthcare hands-on license to practice CST, the following minimum study is required:

1. 80 hours of Anatomy and Physiology and 15 hours of Pathology. One way to satisfy this requirement is through the home study coursework, Upledger Health Science Essentials, http://shop.iahe.com/Product-List/All-Products/Upledger-Health-Science-Essentials, available through the London (Ontario) College of Osteopathy.
2. 3 hours of ethics, such as our video-Ethics in Action, available at http://shop.iahe.com/Product-List/All-Products/Online-Video-Ethics-in-Action, or other accredited organization program

This course will introduce you to the anatomy and physiology of the CranioSacral System through our practical hands-on “learning by discovery” method. You will learn advanced palpatory skills, fascial and soft tissue release techniques, and a concise 10-step protocol for evaluation and treatment of the entire body via the CranioSacral System. To supplement class instruction you will receive a fully-illustrated, comprehensive study guide.

PLEASE BRING A MASSAGE/TREATMENT TABLE. Due to liability issues, meeting sites may not allow banquet tables to be used as treatment tables. Additionally, treatment tables provide a safer and more comfortable environment for the lab portion of class. We understand some travel may not make massage/treatment table transport possible – when you receive an email from us asking about massage/treatment tables, please simply reply accordingly.

AFTER you sign in and pick-up your name tag at the seminar, set your massage/treatment table in front of the pre-set chairs in the meeting room.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing (preferably no jeans.) A light jacket is recommended because temperature can be difficult to control. Due to potential chemical sensitivities of your classmates, please refrain from wearing perfumes or oils to class.
