Craniosacral Therapy Edmonton | Sherwood Park
History of Craniosacral Therapy
In the late 1800s, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still discovered that many illnesses could be treated through careful manipulation of the musculoskeletal system – without the need for dangerous surgery or drugs. This was a major step forward in medical science and lead to the development of Manual Osteopathy. More than a century later – in the mid-1970s – Dr. John Upledger took it one step further and developed Craniosacral Therapy (CST).
Dr. John Upledger derived his ideas from William G. Sutherland. Sutherland began teaching a course at the American School of Osteopathy in the 1940s regarding Osteopathy in the Sacral Field. The course’s popularity and teaching grew. Upledger, a doctor of Osteopathy, later developed the protocol and steps used in CST today.
