Craniosacral Therapy defines the physiology and anatomy of the craniosacral system, its function in health, and relationship to disease processes. It provides practical instruction in developing and extending palpatory skills which will greatly benefit all forms of manipulation, as well as basic physical diagnosis.
A gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system — the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord — CST boosts the body’s natural healing processes.
Two hundred drawings and photographs illustrate the mechanisms underlying the craniosacral system, and vividly demonstrate how to perform craniosacral techniques in the clinic.
“At this point in time is it even necessary to recommend this book, which has become a timeless reference for our art and techniques? There are very few reference books like those of Still and Sutherland, yet for me, John Upledger should be placed among these legendary figures of osteopathy. I consider it my great good fortune that I had the opportunity to meet him and work with him.”
–From “An Appreciation of John E. Upledger” by Jean-Pierre Barral, D.O.
“Dr. Upledger has the ability to provide simple, concise, clinically sound reasoning for many previously unexplained craniosacral findings. There are numerous, well-defined diagrams and illustrations by Mr. Vredevoogd, M.F.A.”

“The ideas and methods in this book have had a profound impact on my practice… Highly recommended to all chiropractors who wish to deepen their understanding of cranial work.”
