This is an excellent preparation for the CST-1 Basics class. The focus is the first two days. Day 1 includes the history of CST, cranial rhythm lecture, the stillpoint and v-spread techniques. Day 2 includes a fascia lecture, diaphragm and core link/dural tube traction techniques. Lectures will be followed with demonstrations by the instructor and then labs so participants can practice what they have just learned. This will be followed by Q&A periods. There are short breaks in the morning and afternoon sessions and a lunch break. All participants will receive study guides and a CE certificate.

You’ll learn different ways to get more detail and depth out of your strokes. Techniques can be applied while your client is in prone, supine and side-lying positions. It’s not ~just~ about 2 footed strokes, it’s about being more efficient and smart with the work.
While there are many different approaches to the practice, all forms of Craniosacral Therapy (also called CST or cranialsacral therapy) are designed to promote a healthy central nervous system. The modality uses a light touch and can be performed while your client is fully clothed. Craniosacral therapy sessions are typically a stand-alone service.
The idea of manipulating cranial bones, spine, neck and sacrum or the flow of cerebrospinal fluid forms the foundation of most craniosacral therapy CE classes. However, some are based on the idea of essential energy pathways that run through the body. Courses in SomatoEmotional Release (SER), which uses the techniques of craniosacral therapy to help patients recover from negative emotions and trauma, are also available from some craniosacral therapy education providers.
Massage therapy continuing education courses are more than a hurdle to jump for license renewal. Massage therapists today are presented with an incredible array of opportunities to hone their craft, learn new techniques, and expand their practice into new areas. With topics ranging from new modalities to how to build a business, massage CE workshops offer something for every bodyworker.
For NCBTMB recertification, massage therapists must complete 24 credit hours of massage CE classes every two years. Three of those hours must be in research, three must be in ethics, and no more than four can be in self-care. Hands-on CE workshops, seminars, and distance learning offer plenty of ways to fulfill the 24-hour requirement.
