The discovery of the Dural Pulse by Dr. John E. Upledger was the foundation for the groundbreaking work that he would later coin as CranioSacral Therapy. The development of this therapeutic approach earned Dr. Upledger recognition in TIME magazine as one of America Next Wave of Innovators for his proven clinical applications of this therapy.

From 1975 to 1983, Dr. Upledger was a professor of biomechanics at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University. While he was there he led a team of anatomists, physiologists, biophysicists and bioengineers who performed and published the clinical research that formed the basis for CranioSacral Therapy.

In 1985, after decades of research, Dr. Upledger founded Upledger Institute International to teach people worldwide about the value of this effective approach. Today, the Institute is one of the most respected training venues in the world, with more than 90,000 alumni. Dr. Upledger also founded the Upledger Clinic the same year to provide treatment to individuals suffering from pain and dysfunction, and to continue his groundbreaking research in a clinical setting.

3Educational Programs

Few, if any, light-touch-therapy training venues have received as much critical acclaim as that received by Upledger Institute International. The reason is clear - it's where practitioners can gain effective instruction on non-invasive bodywork direct from the source.

For over 22 years Dr. John E. Upledger, his curriculum developers and his staff have been training many of the most highly regarded light-touch therapists in the world.
