Registered Membership €120.00

Registered membership of IACST reflects a high standard of knowledge and expertise in Craniosacral therapy. Registered members are eligible to join the IACST when they have been awarded relevant qualifications and have undertaken supervised training.

In order to apply for registered membership of IACST you must be in receipt of a "Certificate of Completion" from your Craniosacral Therapy Educational Provider.  You must also have completed Anatomy & Physiology  ITEC Level 3 or FETAC Level 5 (or equivalent to these qualifications) and provide a copy of your certification (see below for further explaination). We also require an up to date First Aid Certificate (1 day basic course incl CPR is accepted), and an up to date Insurance Certificate covering you for craniosacral therapy. Evidence of CPD will also need to be provided.

It is also now required to have a Garda Vetting Clearance certificate (and Police clearance certificate for those who have been or currently are resident overseas)

Registered members may purchase their own webpage on the IACST website for an annual fee of €50.  Please contact the website manager, Cliona O Connell, at for log-in details and passwords. 

The membership year runs from November 1st to October 31st. On registration and renewal you will also need to provide evidence of CPD completed. For more information on this click here

New members will be invited to make payment for membership fees and garda vetting fees once an application has been received and has been approved.

Please fill in the online form opposite and an email will be sent to you automatically with a membership form attached which you should print off and return to the IACST Secretary, (the address will be on the end of the downloaded application form). Please ensure that all required membership documentation is sent with your membership form as failure to do so will delay processing of your membership.

Anatomy and Physiology Specifications:

From the 2016/2017 registered year, Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) will be included in the membership criteria for registered therapists of the IACST.
This is necessary to maintain alignment with government and European standards, for the upcoming voluntary registration, without which we run the huge risk of it becoming illegal to practice CST in Ireland.

The level required in A&P is FETAC Level 5, ITEC Level 3. If you have A&P completed but it doesn't state if standard is FETAC Level 5 or ITEC Level 3, then a letter WILL BE required from your education provider stating that this particular course OR module is equivalent to either FETAC Level 5 or ITEC Level 3.

The only exceptions will be for those who have already completed A&P to the level described above or it was included in a degree level programme or equivalent thereof. Examples are osteopath/physio/occupational therapist/doctor/nurse etc.

Students will not be required to have this certificate for student membership but will require it to attain registered member status.
