what students are saying

Loved it! So thankful I followed my intuition and took this course.

Anastasia CST1-June 2022

Amanda does a beautiful job at instructing in a way I can grasp the material. She encourages you to trust what you feel and has given me confidence in adding this new modality into my practice. Loved the breakdown of the course in a very digestible manner. 10/10 for instructors preparation, patience and knowledge.

Stephanie- CST1 June 2022

Craniosacral Therapy is based on the theory that every cell in a healthy body expresses a rhythm this movement which is fundamental to life and which has been called craniosacral movement. At the core of the body the cerebrospinal fluid, which bathes and cushions the brain and spinal cord, expresses this motion in a tide and ebb flow; while bones, organs and other structures in the body each follow their own particular pattern of movement. Craniosacral movement is so subtle that it is barely measurable with instruments, but the hands of a trained therapist are able to perceive it.

In response to physical knocks or emotional stress, the body's tissues contract. Any stresses, tensions or traumas which have been stored in the body in this way will restrict the body's functioning. These show up in the way the Craniosacral motion is expressed.

Craniosacral therapists are trained to feel this subtle motion in the body, and can use it to identify areas where there is congestion or restriction. In this way they can identify the possible origin of the problem. Using the hands to reflect back to the body the pattern it is holding, providing an opportunity for the body to adjust and let go of the trauma or pain.​
