Introductory Craniosacral Therapy Training

Introductory Craniosacral Therapy Training

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a safe, natural form of hands-on healing that helps people heal and blossom as they release pain and suffering. CST is a potent alternative to allopathic medical care, as well as a deeply healing supplement to all conventional health care techniques.  Learn how powerful your healing can truly be, with this effective, non-invasive modality proven to relieve pain without medication.  Take our introductory Craniosacral Therapy Training program.

Our introductory course in Craniosacral Therapy is for you if you are looking for an exciting healing journey or a career-expanding adventure.  This three day workshop provides you with a practical and fun introduction to CST.  In this training you quickly begin using your healing hands in an altogether new way– with gentleness, intuition, and technical accuracy.  You also begin connecting with the wavelike craniosacral rhythm and learn over 15 CST techniques that you can immediately put into practice to release structural and energetic blocks.

Whether CST is performed on its own or as an adjunct to your current practice– from surgery to spiritual healing– you and your clients will be awed by the results.  For massage and physical therapists, rolfers, and chiropractors whose bodies are wearing out from hard manual labor, the gentleness of CST can transform and prolong your careers.  For nurses, physicians, and psychotherapists seeking effective natural healing forms with virtually no negative side effects, this calm practice will rejuvenate you and deepen your patients’ healing.  For lay people, the warm, supportive environment of our training program provides you with an ideal place to combine personal healing with a sacred inner journey.  Come join us!

The goals of the introductory workshop are to give students a useful and practical introduction to CST, to teach students how to begin helping their patients release and resolve pain using CST, and to stimulate further interest in this hands-on healing modality.

Program Prerequisites

  1. Your Inner Physician and You by John Upledger
  2. Initial healing session with Dr. Wish (cost $295).

The purpose of the initial healing session is both for me to get to know each student in a meaningful way and for each student to get a sense of me. This is not only a technical training, but also an intimate sacred healing journey, and we each need to decide whether or not to continue this intense journey together. Also, it is my responsibility to make sure that my students are safe as they touch one another physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I try to screen out anyone whose participation might be a detriment to themselves or others. This is a very alive training in which many students open to wondrous inner states they have never before accessed. Likewise students are exposed to levels of human suffering that they may have never before worked with. Getting to know each of you through our one on one session allows me to more fluidly guide and instruct the group in this miraculous healing art, as we develop your unique healing gifts and gently transform your wounds.
