African Institute of Cranial Studies
The South African
Institute of Cranial Studies (SAICS) was founded in 2000 by Al Pelowski (1942
– 2009) to teach CranioSacral Therapy in southern Africa.
His legacy lives through the work of the practitioners and teachers he
exists as a community of teachers, tutors and students who promote the
study and practice of CST in South Africa,
and more recently, Mauritius.
Studying for a
diploma in CST involves a serious commitment of time and resources. The CranioSacral approach to anatomy and
physiology is revolutionary. Students learn to
integrate the arts of deep palpation and dynamic holding with the best of
biomechanical and biodynamic philosophy.
This journey is
transformational – you will never look at life in the same
CST has many
applications. Stress and trauma of
all kinds can be addressed with this approach and it has value in resolving
the symptoms of various conditions.
It is particularly effective with babies and younger children. As a
therapy it can stand alone or be integrated with other modalities. Midwifery, bodywork, dentistry,
optometry, veterinary science and many other disciplines can be enhanced by
the cranial way. There are
approximately 17 000 CranioSacral practitioners in over 40 countries around
EXPLORE THE CRANIAL WAY….
Therapy (CST) is a dynamic hands-on approach to health and well being. It is client led, gentle and
reflective rather than directive ways of holding. Its intention is to create a safe and
contained space for the client’s healing process to emerge.
No two living
creatures will respond to life events or to cranial holding in the same
within us are the true healers of disease.
Each person is
unique and it is the person, not the disease,
that has to be taken
care of .
