The Creation of Craniosacral Therapy: A Modality that Can Benefit Everyone by Abi Keene

It was the early 70’s and Dr. John Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., was assisting on an operation on one of his patients.

For as long as I can remember, chiropractic has been my ‘first line of defense’ for all my ailments. Growing up in a home/office building where my Dad practiced chiropractic, I can recall sneaking down the staircase to catch him between patients. I was an active child and any time I had headache or sports injury etc… I would simply ask “Daddy can you fix me?” and he would!
