Certification Exams

Erin is a certified examiner for the Upledger CranioSacral Therapy Techniques and Diplomate Certification exams. For further information on scheduling to take the practical and objective (multiple choice) portions of the CST Techniques or Diplomate exam with Erin please contact us via phone or email.

The CranioSacral Therapy Techniques Certification process is a rewarding one.

Once you have successfully completed all requirements (completion of CST2, essay exam, practical exam and objective exam) you will be able to use the designation CST.  This designation communicates that you are an Upledger Certified CranioSacral Therapist – Techniques Level.

Once you have successfully completed all requirements (completion of ADV1, essay exam, practical exam, objective exam, preceptorship, case studies, publication) you will be able to use the designation CST-D.  This designation communicates that you are an Upledger Diplomate Certified CranioSacral Therapy.



•  Allow 4 hours for the full exam process (most often completed in 3 hours)
The practical exam will be completed first, followed by the objective exam.
When you come for your exam, you should be prepared to identify hand placements, core intent, tissue release, and be able to verbally articulate any techniques covered in CST1 and CST2.
When you complete the exam, you will ideally have an understanding of areas where you are strong in your practice as well as areas where you could improve – regardless of whether you have passed the exam or not.
For the closed book multiple choice, it is useful to make sure that you have read the questions fully and carefully.



•  Be thoroughly familiar with the content of core curriculum classes.
Have heard the material in both classes more than once.
Have significant clinical experience doing the work in addition to intellectual understanding.
Practice verbally describing the work and the techniques.



Mentorship in CranioSacral Therapy is designed to help you flourish as a practitioner. Becoming a skilled practitioner is about more than just learning skills; it is also about developing the art of CranioSacral Therapy. Whatever your level of development, training or skill level, Erin can work with you to create a mentorship experience that is tailored to your unique needs.

Reasons why some practitioners receive mentorship:

To become a better practitioner

To receive reflection and feedback on current skills

To review and deepen techniques

To prepare for certification testing

To consult on challenging client cases

To review and deepen technical detail

To consult on ethical challenges which naturally arise in clinical practice

To explore personal processes impacting on your professional practice

Erin offers a selection of times in her diary where mentorship session can be scheduled.  These times aim to offer people in different timezones the opportunity to connect.  These mentorship sessions are offered via Zoom and can be scheduled via the button below.  If you would like to share your mentorship session with a fellow practitioner, Erin is more than happy to work with you 2:1.


We’ve curated a selection of published articles and links to research/blogs/case studies that are relevant to CranioSacral Therapy.


Evolve’s mission is to empower people to take a creative role in their own health and wellbeing.

We offer an integrated approach to mindbody medicine through Holistic Manual Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release.
