Benefits of membership
Why become a member?
By becoming a member of the CSS you are ultimately supporting CranioSacral Therapy in the UK and the practitioners who choose to work deeply with this approach.
You are supporting and being a part of the ongoing development work that we engage in, supporting our members in their professional capacity which gives them backing should they ever need it.
As a qualified practitioner we are there to support you. We have done a lot of work over the last 10 years towards self regulation and through this route now enable our qualified practitioners to be regulated with the General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapies. Find out more about them here.
This means that any member of the public can check the credentials of a practitioner which ultimately aims to ensure that complementary and alternative therapies have a standard background of education and training and core principles and ethics from which to work.
“I have found that being a member of the CSS gives me a sense of being supported from behind the scenes. Knowing that there are others who share a love of the work and want to see it grow in recognition and availabliity in this country (and all over the world!) gives a great feeling of being part of something wonderful." sally
