This is Version Two: without voice announcement - Highly recommended for use during therapy sessions. Tracks indicate position changes for (CranioSacral Therapy) CST 10 Step Protocol.
The cello tones on this recording have not been mechanically enhanced or digitally altered in any way. This CD was recorded live in the HealthPlex at the Upledger Institute in North Palm Beach, FL while three Upledger therapists were performing the CST 10 Step Protocol.
A few suggestions for using The Healing Cello - CST 10 Step Protocol CD are:
1. As an audio guide, each track is between 2 to 4 minutes in length. There is a G-note drone between each track to maintain continuity and identifies each new track. This is meant to give the therapist time to change to a new position without disturbing the patient or the flow of the work.
2. Many CranioSacral therapists have already been successfully using The Healing Cello - CST 10 Step Protocol CD during regular treatment sessions. There are no rules. Feel free to shuffle the tracks or loop them for your individual needs or taste. You will find the body will respond differently each time. Follow your instincts--no feeling is wrong.
3. The Healing Cello - 10 Step Protocol CD has also had successful results when used and/or blended with Therapeutic Massage, Reiki, Meditation, Visualization Therapy, and Yoga.
