In their own words

Watch this 5-minute video to learn how CranioSacral Therapy has positively impacted the lives of these Veterans.

What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle manual therapy that uses light touch to relieve pain, stress, and discomfort.

A CranioSacral therapist uses the careful placement of hands to locate restrictions in the CranioSacral system and assist the body in releasing those blockages.

CST encourages the body’s natural ability to repair injury and heal physical and emotional trauma.

CranioSacral Therapy for PTS Vietnam Veteran's Study.

Twenty-two Vietnam veterans, from 10 states within the U.S., served as voluntary subjects for this study.  Six veterans were enrolled in each four two-week intensive CranioSacral Therapy programs.

All but one participant were diagnosed as suffering from combat related Post Traumatic Stress as she served at a field hospital located very near the line of battle.

This video shows the effects of CranioSacral Therapy on these veterans.  For more information, call Kim at 360-705-1133.

Dolphin Assisted CranioSacral Therapy

In this wonderful 17.5 minute video you will experience the magic of Dolphin Assisted Therapy.

The Dolphin-Assisted Therapy intensive programs are 4-day intensive programs featuring select teams of therapists working together to address the specific health concerns of each individual in the lovely setting of Freeport, Grand Bahama Island.

Participants spend time each day in multiple-therapist sessions in the water where dolphins are present and free to interact with the group.  The remainder of the day is spent in multi-therapist sessions on land or in the water.  For more information, call Kim at 360-705-1133.

The Ricky Williams Foundation Launches Concussion Program

Concussion Program

Five former professional football players, including Ricky Williams, recently participated in the five-day intensive manual therapy concussion program and preliminary pilot research project.

The players were treated by 23 therapists from around the U.S., Canada, France and Australia. Therapies utilized during this program were primarily CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and Neural Manipulation.

 The objective of this study was to demonstrate that advanced therapies administered by certified, licensed manual therapists would help to alleviate the symptoms of post concussion syndrome.

Ricky Williams, who played professional football for 12 seasons and, like all players, suffered repeated trauma to his head and body during his career, strongly supports this pilot program.  In describing one of his best seasons as a player, Williams said, "During the summer before the 2009 football season, I went through the CranioSacral Intensive Program at The Upledger Institute looking to deal with some nagging physical complaints I had from past injuries.  I ended up getting the relief I was looking for and much more.  I credit much of my well-being and my 1000 yard season to the multi-modality manual therapy program I experienced at Upledger."

The Ricky Williams Foundation is teaming up with the Upledger Institute Clinic treatment using Upledger CranioSacral Therapy, Barral Neural Manipulation and Barral Visceral Manipulation.  The results from this study are far reaching – not only can these manual therapies help people with sustained repeated trauma, such as with professional football players, but also those who have been in many types of accidents.
