FREE Cranio Sacral Therapy Training Resources
Hello and Welcome,
My name is John Dalton. If you are reading this I am going to assume you interested in learning to become a cranio sacral therapist and are wondering if it is the thing for you.
In my working life I have been a carpenter, a cameraman, a scriptwriter, I have even been a television presenter. I can say without question that being a cranio sacral therapist is the most fulfilling work I have ever done.
It is challenging, demanding and highly pressured work. It requires
me to be very sharp mentally while at the same time deeply meditative.
It demands a high level of confidence while at the same time being
comfortable with uncertainty. At it’s core, helping people in pain
– physical, emotional or spiritual – is a wonderfully satisfying
practical application of compassion.
My motivation behind Open Source Cranio is making cranio sacral therapy training information freely available to people in developing countries.
For me this is a no brainer as cranio sacral therapy is very effective and doesn’t require any technology to practice. Just a pair of hands.
My intention is to provide improved healthcare where it is needed so badly while at the same time creating jobs for the people who become cranio sacral therapists.
If you are from a developing country and want to learn cranio
sacral therapy I want you to know that I don’t pretend to even
begin to know the challenges you face in this endeavor.
I am counting on you to let me know how I can better tailor this site to help you.
I borrowed the term ‘Open Source’ from the computing world where
it is defined as, ‘A model of operation and decision making that
allows concurrent input of different agendas, approaches and priorities.’
The current model for cranio sacral therapy training is to make
the student pay for information and demonstration. There is little
focus on assessment and this has the long term effect of devaluing
the therapy because of inconsistent training outcomes.
Put another way, not focusing on assessment can produce some
very incompetent cranio sacral therapists
With Open Source Cranio I am making my cranio sacral training
information available on this site for FREE.
Do I think you can learn to become a cranio sacral therapist from a website?
But I do think you can get the same amount of information and instruction
as you would attending a 4 day weekend in a class of 40 with one trainer.
What I think you should pay for is mentorship and assessment.
I hope that other schools will adopt this model and focus more on
assessment and recognition of prior learning.
How To Get Started
To get you started I suggest you read the Training FAQs to get a
