Here is an example of real cranial work being done live on a patient in real pain. This is not the stuff being taught for ceu credit.

hello all! I do plan to take craniosacral class with upledger. I took a 16hr introductory class that was offered through my school and I found it fascinating to say the least. I was wondering if anyone had any insight to craniosacral therapy and the possible benefits it might provide to a person regarding the dimensional shift, especially children. I do know that craniosacral therapy can help children with emotional disorders, autism, adhd. I was wondering if anyone had any insight on if the change in our atmosphere/environment/gravitational pull could effect the sphenoid bone, spinal pressure, sacrum etc ?..any comment would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Michele and Char,  I'm so glad I happened to log on at the right time to catch your conversation thread.  I will look forward to following up.

For instructors or therapists in biodynamic go to ,

and for info on visionary cst. It will probably be easier to find someone close to home that teaches biodynamic but will have to travel some to get to Hugh Milne. There are books available too. Franklyn Sills wrote a two volume set called Craniosacral Biodynamics, Michael Shea wrote Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy: A Primer; and Hugh wrote a two volume set The Heart of Listening. Even if you never take a class of his, I strongly recommend his volume 1 to further develop any therapist, he is amazing!

After I took some of the Upledger classes I did a year-long apprenticeship with a therapist in my area named Ken Dipersio.  He had received his training through Upledger and another teacher named Jim Greene.  Both of these guys teach a lot about the different "tides" of the body, the different rhythms of the body that can be palpated and used for diagnosing and healing.  Here are the links below. These guys would be a good start and good people to contact for more advice.

Last year I won a local award for best Craniosacral Therapist from a local magazine.  It was quite an honor and was completely unlooked for.  The reason I bring it up is because I believe that getting my start in Upledger and then learning more "outside the box" as it were has made me a better therapist and has given me more "tools in my toolbox" to use with clients.  Education is power!

Char or Michele, so where would I find the additional training that you are talking about in biomechanical (early Sutherland), biodynamic (later Sutherland) and visionary approaches.  I thought the Upledger training I have received so far was wonderful and plan to continue that journey when a class is running near my home but that is not as often as I would like, and I would love to followup on other training options.  I really have not seen these classes mentioned anywhere.  Where have I not been looking.
