‘CranioSacral Therapy training has changed my therapeutic mind; 

I’m learning to listen to the body and let it guide me to what it needs’


We help you up-level your hands-on skills, lighten your touch and deepen your connection…

What if you could have:



“Before I found CST, my hands had started doing ‘something different’ when I was working with people, but I wasn’t sure quite what it was. Embarking on the training filled the gaps in my understanding of what was happening… and then took what I could feel, and work with, so much further…”



Our training is (so much) more than just a new set of techniques

(Even though the techniques we teach are actually awesome)

Among MANY other things you’ll discover:

      • A profound and powerful way to connect with and support people of all ages (who bring all sorts of issues)
      • That an extraordinarily light touch has remarkable effects on deep structures and processes within the body – leaving clients searching for words to explain the transformational shifts they feel (as there are often no words!)
      • How to gently untangle the physical, mental and emotional stresses that affect a client’s health and life, to bring respite, relief and deep change within.


And all the while… the client is the one doing the work. Ah yes. We listen, follow, support and sit alongside the process, and don’t have to figure it all out.

That shifts the ‘fix-it paradigm’. (Phew, that’s a relief.)


You may find…

…this paradigm shift takes you further – influencing not only how you work, but how you view health, wellness, life…

You start to bring your clients to what they didn’t even know they needed. 

They make breakthroughs that surprise and delight them.


Is this the sort of thing you’re looking for? Then I’m glad you’re here.



When you train with us you’ll: 



But becoming a qualified Upledger CranioSacral Therapist brings you so much more…




You receive lots of treatments (as well as giving them) – a hugely important part of the training, so that you intimately experience the change and transformation CST can bring about.

You do your own inner work and as you dive into the process more deeply, you improve your own health on every level – a great win-win!

Along the way you forge friendships and relationships that often stay with you far beyond your early training days.

You go on a journey that is as unique and individual as you are… 

The destination? (Where do you want to get to?)

It’s up to you but here’s what others say:


Which of these are you? 

Already a Therapist? You’ll need the Core Pack to add this to your practice, get competent and qualified.

Not a therapist yet, but you want to build a thriving, joyful, prosperous business will make your soul sing?
Training From Scratch is your pathway.

and would impact my entire family, all for the better…”



Hi, I’m Caroline Barrow; I run the Upledger Institute in the UK.
Our mission? To support and build on the buzz and excitement students feel as they take this work out into the world.


I remember the moment I decided to become a therapist.

I’d always been fired up by how we can live at our full potential, how these miraculous bodies of ours work and how we can help and support others along our journeys. Contemplating life late one night, I was suddenly hit by the realisation that becoming a hands-on therapist was a path that would tick many of these boxes.  

I did some amazing training and learnt some awesome ways to treat, but there were still sessions that seemed to lack something. I knew I could trust my hands as I worked, but didn’t always understand what they were feeling. I wanted to be more effective, but I actually felt confused about what I should be doing. Which was frustrating.

CranioSacral Therapy changed that. It gave me the science to back up the woo woo and increased my confidence. It gave me another perspective, and fabulous tools, for what was happening in practice.

And it continuously helps me to become a better therapist – a work always in progress. Now I run the institute in the UK, organising the classes and teaching, constantly spurred on by those moments when people’s faces light up feeling something new.

Twenty-five years on, what CST brings to the table still blows me away: I am left awed by clients, inspired by students and always deeply grateful.
