Book Description
Craniosacral therapy is based on the belief that functions of the human system are maintained and integrated by a biodynamic force known as “primary respiration,” or the breath of life. Found in the brain, spinal cord, and bodily fluids, this rhythmic pulse promotes healing and health. Written for students and practitioners but accessible to lay readers, this text presents the fundamental concepts and techniques of a method that redirects the cerebrospinal fluid to areas of imbalance, thus enhancing overall health.

Book Description
Craniosacral therapy improves the central nervous system, strengthens resistance to disease, enhances overall health, and treats a wide range of ailments, including learning disabilities, autism, post-traumatic stress, and cancer. Using a lighter touch than other techniques, this method mobilizes the pressure of cerebrospinal fluid and the bioelectrical connectivity of fascial tissue to affect sites of physical and emotional trauma. In this book, the founder of craniosacral therapy tells the story of its development in the 1970s and outlines its methods, practices, differences from similar therapies, and superiority to invasive treatments such as surgery. Dr. Upledger uses stories from his patients' and his own experiences to describe the methods and benefits of this fast-growing therapy.

Milne,a 3rd generation Scottish osteopath, has the celtic gift of healing through word and touch. He shares the long multi-cultural history, precise techniques and profound implications of cranial work with quiet passion and reverence. His approach is an extraordinary blend of clinical expertise and spiritual authenticity. A must for any therapist using this approach.

The "inner physician" is that part of the psyche that can heal--when one becomes aware of the psycho-emotional issues that come with pain. Dr. Upledger describes his methods through personal accounts such as that from Mary Ellen Clark, the Olympic diver, whom he cured of dizziness.


Reader Reviews
a very readable and helpful book, December 29, 1999
Reviewer: mizrani from Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia
being a freelance writer i need to keep up with health issues and i found this book not only readable but also helpful in explaining the link between the brain and physical/emotional health. my nephew who has attention deficit disorder is being treated using CST (craniosacral therapy) and has improved immensely,so the book helped his mother and i to apply and understand some of the techniques. i recommend this book especially for mothers with autistic children or children with learning disabilities.

A Must read for Trauma and Abuse Survivors, July 11, 1999
Reviewer: Marcie2236@aol.com from Sandy, Utah
When I was 16 yrs old, I was brutally raped and beaten. I did what I had to do to survive. I repressed all memories of the attack. It did not exist in my mind. My body was another story. It recalled in great detail the abuse I suffered. My body reminded me daily with unexplained pain in all parts of my body. I suffered from chronic strep throat from being choked, countless ear and eye infections trying not to "hear" and "see" the abuse. The pain was still there in my ribs from being kicked. I spent the next 14 years in and out of hospitals where I was diagnosed with everything from leukemia to the standard "it's all in your head". The pain was unbearable at times and I would be rushed to the hospital where the physicians would find nothing wrong. They took out my appendix for the heck of it and eventually I had a total hysterectomy to combat the big"C" (cancer). It took years of counseling, and numerous anti-depressants to heal my mind. Which is great in itself, but the physical pain was still there and remained a medical mystery. Through somato release and cranial-sacral therapy I was able to become a whole person free of pain. Dr. Upledger's book is well written and easy to understand. Anyone who has unexplained pain owes it to themselves and their families to read this book and put its theory to the test.

Terrific! A must read for anyone with chronic physical pain., December 9, 1998
Reviewer: A reader from Maryland, USA
I have been in chronic pain for 1 1/2 years following a twisting fall down a flight of 8 concrete steps. I tried traditional medicine and medication, chiropractic, traditional swedish massage and nothing seemed to completely relieve the pain, although the chiropractic therapy did help to some degree. My family physician suggested I try myo-facial massage. It happened that the therapeutic massage therapist she recommended also was a practitioner of cranio-sacral therapy. I had never heard of cranio-sacral therapy and was doubtful. However, the therapist loaned me a copy of Dr. John Upledger's book and began this therapy method on me as an adjunct to the myo-facial massage . This combination of therapy has produced tremendous results. The book has also opened my eyes to a non-invasive, holistic type of therapy, cranio-sacral therapy, which can be extremely useful for a lot of problems people experience for which traditional medicine has failed or not provided complete results. The book is an easy read of a truly technical topic. It will provide much in the way of insight to anyone who reads it. I urge others to read it and to discuss its merits with your family physician and other medical practitioners. This is a book about a little known therapy which can produce astounding results! Well worth the time and money!

Reader Review
Excellent look at the function of part of the nervous system, December 25, 1998
Reviewer: A reader from SF...Sukka Free
Blood brain barrier, cerebral spinal fluid circulation, the layers of dura, locations of vesicles and other structures...all the things my anatomy/physiology professors spent not-quite-enough-time on. Putting it all together at a level that someone with a reasonable knowledge of anatomy can absorb, this book resembles a textbook in some ways. Vague on actual practices of this therapy, but personally I don't care because the a/p is the meat of the book and it's very interesting and enlightening.

Book Description
Craniosacral Therapy II: Beyond the Dura marks yet another step in understanding the craniosacral system and its significance in the clinic. Building on concepts set forth in his pioneering work Cranioscacral Therapy, Dr. Upledger further explores the anatomical and physiological bases and clinical implications of several important aspects of the craniosacral system.

The first chapter looks at the cranial nerves and how they can be effectively influenced by craniosacral therapy. In the second chapter, the author, through words and pictures, dissects the fascial anatomy of the neck from the perspective of the craniosacral system. Chapter 3 scrutinizes the temporomandibular joint and TMJ syndrome. The final chapter focuses on those concepts and discoveries which have unfolded in Dr. Upledger's clinical practice since the publication of his first book.

Rounding out this volume is an extensive glossary of technical terms and concepts related to the theory and practice of craniosacral therapy.

Reader Review
Not a simple read!, May 7, 2001
Reviewer: A reader from Salt Lake City, UT United States
This book is not so much a book on Craniosacral therapy technique as an indepth anatomy textbook. Upledger explores in great detail each of the cranial nerves, the structure of the neck (focusing much attention on the hyoid bone), and the TMJ. He uses medical terminology and an information-dense writing style. Fortunately, there are well labeled diagrams on nearly every page to correspond with the text and illustrate what is being discussed. I found several useful pieces of information to improve the use of Craniosacral therapy with my clients, but I had to search to find these pieces. This is a book I will have to read over and over--not necessarily because I enjoyed the book, but because it has so much information it is difficult to absorb in one reading. I recommend the book if Craniosacral work is a significant part of your bodywork practice and you need more information for working in clinical situations. Be warned! It is not a book you can just keep on your shelf and pull out to quickly look something up in the middle of a therapy session. It is a book to be studied.

Book Description
Craniosacral Therapy is the most practical, comprehensive textbook in this rapidly growing field of therapy involving the cranial bones, meningeal membranes, cerebrospinal fluids, and whole-body connective tissues. 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.

Two hundred drawings and photographs illustrate the mechanisms underlying the craniosacral system, and vividly demonstrate how to perform craniosacral techniques in the clinic.
