Partnering for YOUR Success

Upledger Institute International has partnered with London College of Osteopathy and Health Sciences in Ontario, Canada to offer an online program called:
Upledger Health Science Essentials (UHSE)
Comprised of two courses, Applied Anatomy and Physiology (80 study hours) and Pathology
(15 study hours), UHSE is a highly visible approach to gain insight into how structures and
systems of the human organism function together in health and disease.

This program is an opportunity to refresh and update your skills. Or if you do not already have this training or you are located in an area that does not require a hands-on license to perform CST, this program will fulfill the educational requirement for Upledger CST and for Upledger CST Certification.

Client's Review of CST

Read a first-person account written by a client of CST who has seen various therapists, including Dr. John E. Upledger.

My first experience with CranioSacral Therapy was one of the most unusual experiences in my life. 
There’s a U in Success!
Are You Ready for the Next Level?
Upledger Institute International is proud to provide quality education and training opportunities for you to excel in your career. In order to assist you in achieving your educational and career goals, we encourage you to follow our recommendations designed to help you prepare for the next level of study.

In return, we ask that you be self-responsible for taking the time to develop competency with CST techniques, anatomical knowledge, palpation acuity, and at the SomatoEmotional Release 1 (SER1) and above level, the facilitation of SER which incorporates imagery and dialogue. Class time alone is not sufficient for developing competency to progress in the curriculum. All students need to take time between classes to review, assimilate, and clinically apply what was taught before taking the next class.

Mentorship Has
its Benefits

Becoming a skilled and magnificent practitioner of CranioSacral Therapy is about more than the techniques of CranioSacral Therapy. It is also about the art of doing the work. The IAHE Clinical mentorship program is designed to give you the support and the flexibility you need to help you improve your art and your practice of CranioSacral Therapy.
Articles of Interest
In Australia, an effort to label all alternative (traditional, complementary) medicine products as “based on pseudoscience” has failed.
This article is important to share, as many times complementary healthcare modalities are maligned by saying there is not enough science behind them. People who watch the news or read mainstream news have the impression that “scientific” medical research is remarkably valid and always progressing.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” (Dr. Marcia Angell, NY Review of Books, January 15, 2009, “Drug Companies & Doctors: A Story of Corruption) 
Let's work together to create the healthiest healthcare system.
