What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, and improve whole-body health and vitality.
CranioSacral Therapy was pioneered by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as a professor of biomechanics. He then founded the Upledger Institute, which provides continuing education for therapists around the world.
