In CranioSacral Therapy: Touchstone for Natural Healing, John E. Upledger, DO, OMM, recounts his development of CranioSacral Therapy. He shares poignant case studies of restored health: a five-year-old autistic boy, a man with Erb’s palsy, a woman with a fifteen year history of severe headaches, and numerous others. And he offers simple CranioSacral Therapy techniques you can perform at home on yourself or loved ones.
“Why should it surprise us that we can tap into the body’s own inner wisdom to facilitate a positive response through the use of our hands and an innate desire to help? In my mind, this is health as it was meant to be—a natural collaboration between two human beings on a multitude of different levels, all simply allowing the body to do what it was born to do best.” —John E. Upledger, from the Introduction
“I have long sought an introduction to craniosacral therapy for those who don’t know what it is or imagine it has to do with spinal injury or is only for sick people. In fact, CST is a natural manual medicine, preventive as well as curative, psychological and emotional as well as anatomical and somatic. Much as Iceland contains powerful underground shear forces and vital fluids, so does the human body. Their balance and release affect every aspect of life. This anthology opens the door to general mainstream understanding.” —Birgir Hilmarsson, founder and director, The Upledger Institute, Iceland
