CranioSacral Therapy 2 

Level 2 of the Upledger CranioSacral Therapist 

Education Program

Course Description:

- CST2 course starts with the description of the functional disorders of the cranial base, the way they were diagnosed and treated by Dr. William G. Sutherland. During the course participants will learn how to integrate the Sutherland technique into the system of the 10-Step Protocol, in order to realize and locate lesions, blocks and to carry out the necessary individual corrections.
- We examine the masticatory system by monitoring and treating the hard palate, the mandibula and the temporomandibular joint.
- With the help of the course participants will be able to refine their techniques to diagnose and treat the motion distortions of the sphenopalatine-vomero-maxillary complex, as well as, the blocks of the teeth.
- Participants gain skills to observe and evaluate general vitality, motivation, emotional status and biochemical dysfunction using the craniosacral rhythm as the significance detector.
- You can learn four whole-body examination techniques that are based on the perceptible physiological phenomena: arcing, craniosacral motion, fascial glide, dural tube mobility / paravertebral movement.
- Moreover, the participants can have a look into the application of SomatoEmotional Release® and Energy Cysts release.

- Submission of the application documents (1 copy of the Application Form filled in completely, 2 copies of the Course Contract signed on each page, 1 piece of a photo not older than 6 months) within the given deadline;

- Prior the course a successful CS1 Level Exam at a previously confirmed date by Orsolya Gábriel. Level Exam Fee: 16.000 HUF Level Exam application deadline: April 1st, 2019, exam deadline April 18th, 2019 the latest.
- Active participation in three CranioSacral Visceral Cranium sessions as a patient, by three different, CST-T certified therapists being at least at level 4 (SER2). Names and contacts of the therapists who meet the requirements can be found with the help of the search engine under the 'Students' section of the website by checking the 'Therapists for Demo Treatment' check box.
This latter condition is inevitable for more reasons. On one hand, students can experience themselves the direct impact of the cranium visceral and sphenobasilar lesion treatment techniques they are about to learn. On the other, that is even more important, the experience gained from professional therapists makes it possible for the students to give each other feedbacks during the practical sessions of the course. Finally, it is of great importance not to have the three treatments by the same therapist.  This way students can gain wider personal experience from several sources, without being influenced by the personality and style of treatment of one therapist. We suggest you leaving 5-7 days between the therapies, so that the body could adjust to the changes occurring due to the therapies. Please avoid having any therapies 7-10 days prior the course.

Additional Information:
Some techniques require the usage of rubber gloves provided by the course organizer. Participants being latex-sensitive should take care of gloves made of other materials themselves.
At the end of the course students will receive a certification issued by the Upledger Institute Hungary. The issue of the certification is subject to the students’ presence during the whole period of the course, as well as, to their active participation and cooperation. The issued certificate does not qualify for individual medical activity!
Participation in the course only does not give the right to use the title ‘CranioSacral Therapist’, or call the activity ‘CranioSacral Therapy’, until the CST-T (CranioSacral Therapy Technique Certificate) exam is passed successfully after the course, covering the learning material of the CST1 and CST2 courses.

Moreover, we would like to draw the participants’ attention to the Edict No. 40/1997. (III.5.), as well as, to the NM Decree No. 11/1997 (V.28.), that professional practice of the techniques learnt in the course is subject to authorization. The participant is obliged to meet the legal requirements in order to carry out professional practice.
