Craniosacral Therapy vs. Osteopathy
Craniosacral Therapy comes from Osteopathy. The developer of Craniosacral Therapy, Dr. John Upledger was an Osteopath.
Osteopathy was created by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, M.D. at the end of the 1800’s. A few prominent Osteopaths have made significant contributions to the profession. Of them is Dr. William G. Sutherland, D.O. and Dr. John E. Upledger, D.O.
Dr. Sutherland’s contribution to the profession of Osteopathy parallels that of the practice of some ancient cultures, on what many consider the most important area of the body, the head.
Dr. Sutherland developed, “Cranial Osteopathy”. The implementation of Osteopathic principles on the cranium. He discovered the inherent mobility between the plates of bones at the sutures that comprise the cranial-bowl (head).
Dr. John E. Upledger expanded on Sutherland’s principles and created CranioSacral Therapy, a healing hands-on approach taught to over 100,000 practitioners worldwide since the mid 1980’s.
