... craniosacral therapy (cst) in the philippines ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, osteopath, quezon city, manila)

Today is a special day for me, having graduated from Jim Green's Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Practical Integration Course.

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle touch therapy, developed by osteopathic physician John Upledger.  CST uses very soft touch which weighs less than the 2004 edition of the Philippine peso (5.35 grams).  What CST does is to improve the functioning of the central nervous system- by releasing any restrictions which impede the smooth flow of cerebrospinal fluid protecting your brain and spinal cord.

CST stimulates the body’s natural healing ability and is good for a wide range of medical and psychiatric conditions, such as:

* Migraine headaches
Chronic neck and back pain
Central nervous system disorders
Learning Disabilities
Emotional Difficulties
Anxiety and Panic Attacks
Stress and Tension-related Problems
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Jim Green and me.  It was an honor to be taught by 
the Albert Einstein of Craniosacral Therapy.

We had the privilege of being taught by Mr. Jim Green who provided us with such high quality instruction and supervision.  Even before the Upledger Institute was established, Jim Green was already receiving training and supervision directly from Dr. John Upledger himself.  In fact, Jim was the first CST practitioner to become certified by Dr. Upledger in techniques level certification.  In the 1990s, Jim taught more CST classes than Dr. Upledger did.  He not only had the enviable pleasure of working at the clinic alongside Dr. Upledger, but Jim and Dr. Upledger would trade CST sessions on each other on a regular basis.  These days, Jim Green with his wife Regina travels all over Europe, America, and Asia teaching CST.    

My classmates and I rewarded Jim Green with the healthiest
of Pinoy food:  bulalo, chicharon, sisig, etc.  Next time he comes 
back, we'll force feed him on a diet of IUD, betamax, adidas, 
helmet, walkman, tokneneng, and kwek-kwek.      

Thank you Jim for your generosity in sharing with us what you know, and for wanting us to become the best CST practitioners possible.
