Instructor: Randall Gibson, M.Ed., LMT – in cooperation with the Upledger Institute, Inc. 




In this class, you will develop and/or refine your light-touch palpation skills. You will learn how to palpate and evaluate the craniosacral rhythm, a subtle physiological movement affecting the entire body. You will also learn how to locate subtle restrictions in the connective tissue system. Then you will use fascial release techniques and Direction of Energy to correct those restrictions.

This is also your opportunity to sample the Upledger Institute’s CranioSacral Therapy 1 (CS1) workshop studied by more than 85,000 healthcare practitioners worldwide. This twelve-hour program is a mix of lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice designed to teach you the benefits of CST along with basic techniques you can use in practice and for your own health.
