"Love, love, love this course! What I love is that I get to see babies treated in real time in a clinical environment. I get to see how Jonathan works with babies and communicates with their parents. He then breaks the session down, piece by piece, to point out what he is doing and feeling. He is masterful at communicating the relevant and most topical information you need for clinical application. I'm a Craniosacral therapist and Birth Doula. I've taken other peds courses through Upledger and Allison Hazelbaker (both fabulous). This course filled in missing pieces for me and most importantly linked the material to clinical applications. There is plenty of new material here that I can integrate into my CST sessions."

Hello and Welcome!

This course allows limited numbers of participants in order to maximize interactivity and allow frequent Q&A

The curriculum has a very strong practical focus and it's extensive use of clinic footage will provide you with the skills and confidence to treat babies straight away.
Due to the limited numbers on this course and that Dr Evans' Babies course that ran in March of this year sold out very quickly we would recommend that you book onto this course as soon as possible.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course the student will have the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to perform a hands on examination and treatment of a baby.

Required Prior Learning

The pre-requisite for this course is prior experience of working ‘hands on’ with patients. No prior experience of working with babies is needed. Students with prior experience of cranial or craniosacral therapy will find this course a particularly good fit for them. However, there are many other practitioners who will also really benefit from this course so if you unsure it’s for you, just get in touch and we can chat further about it
