General Information


cranial sacral

Here is one mom's testimonial in support of of Cranial Sacral Therapy.

Cranial Sacral Therapy has helped keep my son healthy!  He would get head and chest colds from the first day back at school and we would battle them all year.  When we first started this therapy, I noticed he wasn't getting sick, but figured I had the right vitamin combination.  Then the teacher that had told me about cranial sacral therapy, mentioned that her daughter stayed healthier while they were receiving therapy.  I had attributed his good health to the right combination of vitamins.  I now believe that the vitamins helped, but it was the cranial work he was having done that was the key!  We quit going to the therapy since it is somewhat expensive and sure enough he got sick again.  We have started again (its worth the expense in the long run!) and his dad and I have been sick and most of the kids at school and so far (knock on wood) he's stayed healthy!!!

Cranial Sacral work can be done for many different aliments having to do with the nervous system.  Injuries to the head, neck and spine, headaches including migraines, dizziness, and even babies with colic to name a few.

You can go to an Osteopathic Physician for this type of therapy or to the Upledger Institute website.  Dr. John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., D.Sc., is credited as pioneering the field of cranial sacral therapy.  On his website, he lists by state the therapists that have gone through his training.  Some of his books include: 

  • Your Inner Physician and You:  CranioSacral Therapy and Somato Emotional Release

  • A Brain is Born
