Distinctions in Craniosacral Work

Mary Reis, LMT

Craniosacral work has evolved since Dr. William Garner Sutherland, the father of Osteopathy in the Cranial Field, died in 1954. Thanks to Dr. John Upledger making Craniosacral Therapy ™ available to non-osteopaths, three main approaches to the work are available for Massage Therapists to study. Most therapists don’t know the difference between the approaches, and this lecture will introduce each one: Biomechanical, Functional, and Biodynamic.  2 CE class.
