CST BioMechanics 1: Body


This sixteen hour course is an exciting, hands on therapy experience that supports you in reaching a deeper understanding of each individual you seek to help. Exercises in mindful awareness bring deep insights into the clients’ physiological patterns that inhibit health. You will gain knowledge of developmental embryological patterns that provide the template to restore health and balance. With awareness and understanding, you will recognize root causes of dysfunction that arise through injury, trauma experience, genetics, disease and other causes.

Craniosacral Therapy Biomechanics 1: Body teaches perceptual palpation of the structural body, the fluid body within the structure, and the underlying frequencies and fields of energy. In a systematic approach, through lecture, demonstration, mindfulness exercises and practical, hands on technique labs, you will use the knowledge and skills gained to perform release techniques for the whole body. Each technique is a window into the wholeness, designed to offer profound results in the path toward wellbeing.

In this course the emphasis is on accessing the fluid body through the window of the fascia. Fascia contains the fluid and is under the direct influence of fluid body shape and tension. Biophysics states that, in the body, the container takes the shape of the fluid. Therefore, when we change the shape or organization of the fluid, the container (fascia) will change to contain the new shape. The need to do deep structural work is often not necessary, as the structure re-settles into its original embryonic pattern for health under the direction of fluid changes.

CST is gentle, supportive therapy performed largely through autonomic connection with an open mind and heart. It is from this interconnection with each other that therapist and client enter the healing process.
