Beames CST Training Centre

We teach you how to use craniosacral to improve the lives of babies and parents in your community.

Parents are struggling with their babies, and you can help them. 

Learn how to help with these symptoms

Nursing Issues

Parents think it's their fault that their baby isn't feeding well. But what if it was something within the baby's body that needs to be addressed that would improve the latch?

Pre/Post Tongue Tie Revision

A tongue tie brings on so many problems with feeding, digestion and sleep. Some families choose to do a revision and some don't. Either way, tongue ties should be addressed.

Sleep issues

A hungry baby, an uncomfortable baby, a gassy baby, an overstimulated baby, a refluxy baby, a sore baby, a tired baby all create poor sleep and it wears on the whole family.

Colic

Imagine a baby screaming all day long and not being able to help them. Parents know their baby is in pain, and they have no idea how to help them. 

Gas/Reflux

A baby that is swallowing too much air has to get it out somehow. They grunt it out, they scream it out, they spit it up and they are generally very upset. 

Head Shape

With the advent of the Back To Sleep Campaign came the baby head shape woes. Infant heads can shifted into non-preferred shapes if left in the same position for long periods of time.

How does it work?

Craniosacral therapy works to release fascia within the entire body. 

Assessment techniques help to see the baby in a new way. Symptoms will no longer be seen as a problem that the parents just have to live with, but as a sign of what can be treated with CST.

CST treatments take a baby that cries incessantly one day to calm and smiling the next - using gentle touch that relaxes their body and stimulates the nervous system.

CST unlock the questions about symptoms. Symptoms lead to areas in the body that need to be treated. Structure effects function. Improve the structure (ei. muscles and fascia), improve function (ie. latch, pooping)

Some techniques change the head shape of a baby and their latch and digestion will improve. There is only good that can come out of a well performed treatment. 

Benefits of CST

It is truly amazing the kinds of changes babies can see in just a few treatments.

Better Feeding 

Improved muscle function and head symmetry will help them to latch better, gain faster, and even enjoy the feeding experience. Decreased pain for the parent is another added bonus.

Improve Mobility

CST helps to loosen up a baby's body to make it easier to move around. Easier movement equals better mobility and a better chance of hitting milestones on time.

Relieved families

Relieving parents of their worries, letting them know that there really IS something that can be done about their baby troubles is priceless. They will thank you for the rest of their lives for giving them a better start with their baby.

Better sleep

A baby that is comfortable in their body, not trying to push out gas bubbles, and who is calm and relaxed (because their parents are calmer now, too) will usually have a better nights sleep. It might even continue on for a while!

A message from the Founder

Meaghan Beames, RMT

Founder, Course Creator, Instructor, Registered Massage Therapist

If you're here, I know for sure that you have a desire to help people. You are an empathetic soul wanting to make the world a better place, even if that means you're helping one baby at a time.
 
I see you, I understand you, I am you.

I have always been drawn to helping people, and craniosacral has made it possible for me to improve the lives of over 500 families.

My mission is to teach others how they too can make an enormous impact on the world around them.

If 1000 practitioners can treat 1000 babies, that means 1 million babies and families will be helped.

Imagine the ripple effect. Be part of that ripple.

There will be 3 Live Virtual classes where you will be introduced to the assessment and treatment techniques, and you will be practicing these techniques on someone in your household.

If you pass, a certificate of completion will then be granted.

No!
You can learn SO much from just the Infant CST Level 1 - Part 1 class, and you will be able to use that knowledge to treat babies.

However, if you're serious about helping babies out with latching issues, this course is what will bring you to the next level of your treatments.
The ICST Level 1 - Part 2 - has 5 days of In-Person class held in Toronto, Canada. In-person classes are from Monday to Friday 9:30am to 5:30pm.

We will learn how to do cranial releases that will target a chompy, or weak latch and get more clinical practice treating real babies in the Lab.

The next cohort for CST Foundations begins May 30, 2022. Registration closes May 27, 2022.
