About The Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust

The Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust has been training practitioners in Craniosacral Therapy since 1989 and is established as a school of excellence offering in-depth courses in a clear and accessible way.

Our trainings emphasise the development of practical skills to provide the required foundations to effectively practice Craniosacral Therapy in a professional capacity. Student learning is comprehensively supported by supervision and feedback from tutors, and clinical experience is gained during the latter stages of the training at the Trust's unique teaching clinic in London.

Within the school's "biodynamic" approach there is an emphasis to work in cooperation with the underlying forces that govern our health. This involves taking a whole person and patient centred approach to treatment that incorporates an appreciation of body, mind and spirit.

Michael Kern

We have been at the cutting edge of the development of biodynamic Craniosacral practices and have a very experienced team of tutors including some of the leading teachers in the field.

The founder and principal of the school is Michael Kern, author of the highly acclaimed book "Wisdom In The Body - The Craniosacral Approach To Essential Health".

The Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust is fully accredited by the Craniosacral Therapy Association UK (CSTA), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and many other international craniosacral practitioner associations. The CSTA and CHNC are the professional bodies in the UK that maintain standards and protect both Craniosacral Therapy practitioners and their clients.

Successful completion of the course leads to a professional diploma in Craniosacral Therapy and graduates are awarded the designated letters B.C.S.T. (Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist). The B.C.S.T. award comes from the Trust as part of its membership of the International Affiliation of Biodynamic Trainings.

The Trust also offers:

  • a comprehensive programme of continuing professional development courses with leading teachers of Craniosacral Therapy and allied fields.
  • regular 'taster' introductory weekends in Craniosacral Therapy.
  • an interactive and experiential Living Anatomy foundation course.
  • a teaching clinic in London providing low cost Craniosacral Therapy treatments.

Working With Babies, Mothers And Pregnancy with Sarah Nesling B.Sc., M.A., R.C.S.T. on September 29th - October 2nd 2016

A very practical four-day advanced course to equip Craniosacral practitioners to work effectively with babies, mothers and pregnancy. This important and rewarding area of practice requires a sensitivity to the field between the mother and baby, as well as a range of hands-on approaches. The ability to skilfully treat babies and pregnant women also rests on an understanding of the anatomical changes that place during pregnancy and childbirth, as well as having clarity around the process of birthing, and medical interventions and their possible repercussions.
