Thank you for your interest in the health education programs offered by The Upledger Institute. At your
request, a space has been reserved for you in our four day CranioSacral Therapy I workshop being held
in or near Chicago, IL on Thursday June 11, 2009 - Sunday June 14, 2009, at Holiday Inn Chicago Skokie in Skokie, IL.
This course will introduce you to the anatomy and physiology of the CranioSacral System through our
practical hands-on "learning by discovery" method. You will learn advanced palpatory skills, fascial and
soft tissue release techniques, and a concise 10-step protocol for evaluation and treatment of the entire
body via the CranioSacral System. To supplement class instruction you will receive a fully-illustrated,
comprehensive study guide.
To ensure you receive the maximum benefit from the workshop, please know the definition and/or
location of the enclosed anatomical terms before the start of the class. The majority can be found in
CranioSacral Therapy I, Clemente Anatomy: Atlas of Human Anatomy, and Netter Anatomy: Atlas of
Human Anatomy. In addition, Dr. Upledger recommends that you read Your Inner Physician and You and
the first six chapters of the textbook, CranioSacral Therapy. These references may be ordered by calling
us at 800 233-5880.
If you have never experienced CranioSacral Therapy for yourself, it is recommended, but not required,
that you have a session prior to class. This will help you gain valuable insights into how the technique
works and what its effects are on the body. To find a CranioSacral Therapy practitioner in your area, log
