In this class, students will learn how to safely approach, handle, and offer CranioSacral Therapy to small animals, especially dogs, of all variety of shapes, sizes, and breeds. 

The emphasis is on the core principles and practice of Upledger CST, and includes listening stations, diaphragm releases, cranial vault anatomy and techniques, anatomical differences amongst breeds and species, clinical considerations, including pathological processes and diseases transmitted from animals to humans or humans to animals, gait analysis - normal and faults, as well as a multi-step protocol for offering CST for small animals. Class time consists of lectures with plenty of hands-on lab time (practice is on animals only).

It was a great class and it really was (an) amazing review and deepened my understanding of CST. ~ May, 2015

Taking the small animal class taught me so much.  I was surprised how different the techniques are for animals.  ~ May, 2015

I think this class helped me understand the human craniosacral system much better. ~ May, 2015

Puts the human work into an even clearer perspective. ~ May, 2015

These techniques are very valuable for animals with "behavioral" problems - often the problem is pain induced. ~ May, 2015

Amazing experience. Lots of great information, techniques explained and shown in excellent, easy to understand way. ~ July, 2015

Sandi has a very thorough knowledge and understanding of all the concepts. She is a very charismatic instructor with hands-on approach. Sandi also exceeded my expectations - excellent course material and manner of teaching. ~ July, 2015
