This book is a well-illustrated clinical introduction to cranial manipulation techniques that takes the reader through the underlying concepts and examines the techniques themselves. As these techniques become increasingly known and in demand this is the first book that clearly and practically explains them to manual therapy practitioners. An introductory section on the relevant anatomy and physiology is followed by a short history of the development of cranial methodology, as it is relevant to practice today. Specific techniques are outlined in straightforward language and combined with high quality illustrations to show hand positions, direction of motion, etc.

Book Description
What is cranial osteopathy? How and who does it help? This no-jargon guide explains this increasingly popular therapy. Cranial osteopathy is gentle and non-invasive. Like osteopathy, it is based on the theory that the body heals itself, and the best way to aid the process is to promote balance in its structure and mechanics. Cranial osteopathy specifically addresses the relationship between bones and related structures in the head, face, spine and pelvis within the healing process. Its effects can be powerful and long-lasting. Using case studies and line drawings, this manual describes what happens in a session and explains how cranial osteopathy can help with common and more serious problems, such as whiplash, RSI, musculo-skeletal problems and mental illness. The text also shows that cranial osteopathy can be used at different stages of life such as infancy, the menopause and old age. The book is rounded off with a section on other complementary and natural therapies that encourage wellbeing.

Book Description
With more than one hundred illustrated techniques, Atlas of Manipulative Techniques for the Cranium & Face is one of the most comprehensive sources of cranial techniques available.

Organized by bone, each technique is illustrated through remarkable drawings which graphically depict the placement and movement of the practitioner's hands on the patient's head. Accompanying text systematically describes the purpose of the technique, the position of both patient and practitioner, the points of contact, and the movement of hands and fingers in relation to the cranial motion.

The concise, systematic description of each technique and the vivid illustrations which accompany the text have contributed equally to the success which this book has enjoyed throughout the world.

Book Description
While there is considerable diversity in the forms and styles of cranial manipulation, all would agree that a thorough understanding of the sutures of the cranium and face is essential. Yet until now, no one has given these important structures the attention they deserve.

In this ground-breaking work, the author describes the structure and motion of the sutures in much greater detail than ever before, showing with extensive photographic evidence how the bones of the cranium actually move, and how the practitioner can optimally affect that movement. Based on many years of experience in both the clinic and anatomy lab, Dr. Pick's analysis is supported by over 300 photographs and illustrations.

Systematically examining each of the sutures, including those of the face, vault, and base, Dr. Pick brings clarity and precision to these descriptions. Everyone who touches the head with a therapeutic intent will learn many valuable lessons from this book.

This is likely to become the standard reference on the cranial sutures for many years to come, and is an essential book for all practitioners of cranial manipulation.
