Pregnancy Birth & Postpartum CST Classes

 

The following classes are designed for people who want to learn CST skills for pregnant, laboring and postpartum people. The Subtle Hands-On Skills class is the foundation course. It must be taken first. Next is CST for Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum. After that, students are eligible to take MamaSpace Yoga® Prenatal Prescriptions, MamaSpace Yoga® Postpartum Prescriptions or CST for Pregnancy Birth & Postpartum – Advanced Clinical Skills. Students who have completed CST for Pregnancy Birth & Postpartum – Advanced Clinical Skills are eligible for Pregnancy Birth & Postpartum CST Certification.

 

Subtle Hands-On Skills: The osteopathic manual therapy assessment and treatment skills taught in this class form the foundation for my other classes. I have elected to teach these skills first, but they are not necessarily beginner skills. Some of these skills are taught at the more advanced levels in other Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation programs. Some of these skills I have developed myself and are exclusive to this class. Read More…

 

CST for Pregnancy Birth & Postpartum: There is no question that expectant and newly postpartum people benefit from Craniosacral Therapy. Yet, there are so few people to treat them. I have spent years developing the techniques I teach in this class. I am passionate about enhancing mobility in pregnant people’s bodies. This includes the bony pelvis, the abdominal organs, plus the support structures and lower segment of the uterus. Read More…

 

CST for Pregnancy Birth & Postpartum – Advanced Clinical Skills: This class gives students the opportunity to observe more demonstration treatments, continue practice under my supervision and participate in a group case review process. That’s all we do in this class. I give four demonstration treatments (two pregnancy and two postpartum) and my students each treat four pregnant/postpartum people. As a group we review all of the treatments provided during the class (28 treatments in all). Read More…

 

MamaSpace Yoga® Prenatal Prescriptions: I have long recognized that we can accomplish a lot with specifically focused CST treatments to help pregnant people. I also know that the effects of seated occupations, driving, television and internet use conspire to undo some of this good work. More needs to be done – ideally every day. Since 2015 I have been developing a system of prenatal yoga with specific mobility goals that pregnant people can do either in classes or on their own.  Read More…
