This four day course builds on the concepts and fundamental skills of CS1. The course begins with the study of cranial base dysfunctions as perceived, diagnosed and treated by Dr William Sutherland, the father of cranial osteopathy. In this course, students learn how to integrate Dr Sutherland’s techniques for identifying and evaluating lesions into the Upledger "10-step protocol", and how to apply correction when needed.

Students can expect to take away skills to localise and correct motion distortions of the spheno-palatino-vomero-maxillary complex, and restrictions of the teeth. Evaluation and treatment of the hard palate, the mandible and temporomandibular joint are presented and practised to complete the exploration of the masticatory system. Upon completion, students should be able to evaluate general vitality, motivation, emotional status and biochemical dysfunction using the CranioSacral rhythm. Student will also have had the opportunity to observe and/or participate in the process of SomatoEmotional Release®
