I have been in chronic pain for 1 1/2 years following a twisting fall down a flight of 8 concrete steps. I tried traditional medicine and medication, chiropractic, traditional swedish massage and nothing seemed to completely relieve the pain, although the chiropractic therapy did help to some degree. My family physician suggested I try myo-facial massage. It happened that the therapeutic massage therapist she recommended also was a practitioner of cranio-sacral therapy. I had never heard of cranio-sacral therapy and was doubtful. However, the therapist loaned me a copy of Dr. John Upledger's book and began this therapy method on me as an adjunct to the myo-facial massage . This combination of therapy has produced tremendous results. The book has also opened my eyes to a non-invasive, holistic type of therapy, cranio-sacral therapy, which can be extremely useful for a lot of problems people experience for which traditional medicine has failed or not provided complete results. The book is an easy read of a truly technical topic. It will provide much in the way of insight to anyone who reads it. I urge others to read it and to discuss its merits with your family physician and other medical practitioners. This is a book about a little known therapy which can produce astounding results! Well worth the time and money!
