International Craniosacral Therapy Awareness Week
October 14 - 20, 2019

We are pleased to join our craniosacral colleagues across the globe to raise awareness of the benefits of Craniosacral Therapy.
If you are considering craniosacral therapy for your own well-being or development, below are some free resources providing information on Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST).
For those of you who practice biodynamic craniosacral therapy (BCST), we encourage you to use these resources to tell people about this therapy. Consider offering a talk or a few free sessions in your local community, like the ones listed below that our association’s Board members scheduled during Awareness Week.
