A Life That Matters: Transforming Faces, Renewing Lives
by Ken Salyer, MD,
a BTD'15 Presenter  
A Life That Matters is a fascinating book by surgeon Ken Salyer who has devoted his life to helping the world's most unfortunate children grow up with faces that allow them to know they are part of the human community - assured that they are ordinary in the very best way and fully capable of being loved.   


This moving book focuses on the stories of children whose lives have been transformed and their personal testaments to how precious their "normalcy" now is. And it is these children who inspired Dr. Salyer to found the World Craniofacial Foundation to offer hope for poor children in still-developing countries who otherwise would be shunned, locked away, or abandoned.  


In a voice that's compelling and always impassioned, he issues a call for a new worldwide understanding of the rights of the terribly disfigured, and he encourages readers to be inspired by the lives of these children and to transform our own challenges into triumphs. $17.00 each

Case Report
Cary Strohmeyer and Use of CST
as Part of a Cancer Treatment Team

Submitted by Suzanne Aderholt, OTR, MOT, CST-D
He and his family's names used at his request. 

Cary Strohmeyer and his wife Donna have a stout belief in the use of CranioSacral Therapy and how he is certain that it helped him through brain surgery. Cary and his wife Donna had been introduced to CST through their daughter Gracie; they had been making the three hour round trip from west Texas bringing her in for treatments for several years and through her response to her treatments, had learned how beneficial CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is for boosting our body's healing abilities.

The Body Alchemy Trilogy     
By Rebecca Ridge, PhD, LMT, CST-D 
Rebecca M. Ridge has created an exciting and enriching new curriculum entitled, The Body Alchemy of Relational Neuroscience. This trilogy of
Rebecca Ridge, PhD, LMT, CST-D
courses teaches CS therapists how to deepen their therapeutic relationship with clients. It includes specific skills to manage intense states of body dysregulation caused by a loss of trust and safety due to abuse, complex trauma and early childhood neglect from a body therapy perspective.

In Body Alchemy 1, students will learn how to:
  • Establish clear ethical boundaries when working with sensitive emotional memories.
  • Kinesthetically distinguish differing emotional energy fields and respond appropriately to them.
  • Repair the body of trust and apply specific skills to assist a client's nervous system to regulate and reconstruct their history.
  • Communicate with and balance the limbic system through various channels of the amygdala and cingulate gyrus.
  • Balance the vestibular area of the brain stem through positional release techniques.
  • Understand the long term effects of trauma, neglect and abuse on the nervous system.
  • Apply attachment theory to their understanding of a client's healing process.
