The concept of the craniosacral system, its pathological significance and healing capabilities, was first recognized over 50 years ago. But, for nearly half a century, the craniosacral concept has been surrounded by an aura of mystery and has neither been accepted nor understood by the orthodox medical community. Now, however, this concept of dynamic activity involving cranial bones, meningeal membranes, cerebrospinal fluid, the intracranial vascular system, the movement of body fluids and the function of total body connective tissues is presented in a clear and comprehensible fashion. Craniosacral Therapy defines the physiology and anatomy of the craniosacral system, its function in health and its relationship to disease processes. The craniosacral concept, including many observed but previously unexplained phenomena and clinical syndromes, is discussed with clarity and precision. Methods to extend the range and depth of palpatory skills are described in a practical manner. Through dynamic illustrations and incisive text, numerous techniques to assist the self-correcting craniosacral mechanism are explained and demon-strated. These techniques apply craniosacral methodology not only to the cranial and sacral areas bu t also to the trunk, neck and extremities. Methods for diagnosis and treatment by whole body response are described. Craniosacral Therapy also puts the craniosacral concept to practical use through discussions of its application in the treatment of diseases that affect the various organ systems. Anyone who uses the hands as diagnostic or therapeutic tools will find Craniosacral Therapy to be a fascinating and instructive in-depth look at this exciting field of healing.

Small quarto, hardcover, fine in VG tan and maroon pictorial dj. 367 pp. Includes table of contents, appendices A-K, references, and index. Numerous illustrations which include b&w photos and line drawings. Developed by osteopathic physician John Upledger out of cranial osteopathy of William G. Sutherland. The concept of the craniosacral system, its pathological significance and healing capabilities, was first recognized over 50 years ago. But, for nearly half a century, the craniosacral concept has been surrounded by an aura of mystery and has not been fully understood by the orthodox medical community. In laymen's terms and with fascinating client stories, Dr. Upledger describes the tremendously successful results this method has had in the treatment of autism, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and many injuries and traumas of the head, limbs, and spinal chord. It also gives easy-to-follow, do-it-yourself instructions for several basic craniosacral techniques.
