CSD: CranioSacral Dissection
CSD August 25-27, 2023 Baltimore, Maryland


  • Observe cranial dissections on an unembalmed cadaver.
  • Study two frozen craniums - one that is hemi-cut and the other transverse cut.
  • Perform hands-on CST.
  • View and work with the entire dural tube and the cerebella.
  • Observe dissection of the Avenue of Expression and thoracic inlet.
  • Explore the thorax and abdomen (time permitting).

    In this course, you will explore human anatomy with a craniosacral focus and develop increased anatomical knowledge through hands-on dissection, palpation, exploration and discovery. This workshop is designed to offer you the unique experience of evaluating restrictions prior to dissection. Once the dissection occurs you can then visually and tactilly explore the areas evaluated. Additionally, you will be able to apply craniosacral techniques to the cadaver and feel tissue changes externally and internally.
