CranioSacral Therapy: Healing By Inappropriate Touch

Here's a picture of John Upledger, one of the main pushers of craniosacral therapy, performing his woo. Remember, craniosacral therapy posits a twisted telephone cord connecting the skull to the sacrum. All illhealth is caused by this, but it can be cured by "subtle" manipulation of the cranial bones (and less than subtle manipulation of the wallet).

Mr Upledger seems to be having some difficulty locating the patient's cranium...

This is not an aberration, but appears to be a standard craniosacral technique (note the craniosacral image in the lefthand sidebar).

  1. I'm intrigued about the name of it. It conjures up images that they have their heads (cranio) up their backsides (sacrum).
