Due to COVID-19, we are making decisions about whether to hold or reschedule our classes about a month in advance of class start dates. We have consistently made the decision to reschedule since March 2020.

Many classes listed below say they have waiting lists. Some of them actually have openings. We are suspending registrations for them to accommodate people who are registered for classes that will be or that already have been rescheduled. We encourage you to contact us if you would like to be placed on a waiting list for any class. Our Waiting List Policy.

We look forward to meeting in-person again to study and practice CST when it is safe for us to do so. We are continuing to add more offerings into 2021 and 2022 in order to accommodate the people we are transferring to future classes. Please feel free to check in with us before registering if you have questions.

August 30-September 1, 2021 – waiting list

CST – Beyond The Basics Class Description
This is the next step after CST – The Basics. It’s a general Craniosacral Therapy class for people who want more advanced tools for treating adults (not babies, not children, not necessarily pregnant and postpartum people). The focus of this class is to gain more technical skills and weave those skills seamlessly into the fabric of our intuition and intention. This class is a required prerequisite for the General CST Certification. It is also the required prerequisite for CST for Pregnancy Birth & Postpartum.

CST – The Basics with Carol Gray.

In addition, students must be licensed, certified or student health professionals (CNM, CPM, DC, DO, IBCLC, LAc, LDEM, LM, LMT, MD, ND, NP, OT, PA, PT, RN, etc.) or otherwise legally entitled to practice touch therapy. Students may also register if they have instructor approval. Ask me.

In this three-day class we will learn how to apply and refine the basic assessment and treatment tools learned in the earlier class(es) with Carol. This will include a mini-review of material presented in the CST – The Basics class.

We will learn how to detect dysfunction and restore balance in the cranial base, hard palate, floor of the mouth and facial bones. This class includes lectures, demonstrations and lots of hands-on practice. You will learn how to palpate, evaluate and treat the anatomical components of these structures if your assessment leads you there. In order to maximize learning success class enrollment is limited to six students.
