A study reviewed the outcomes of over 150 patients treated through the Upledger Institute of CranioSacral Therapy. Patient ages ranged from infants to 68 years and included those working with 10 different practitioners working independently, as well as those treated by a single practitioner working within the National Health Service.
Seventy-four percent (74%) of patients reported a valuable improvement in their presenting problem. Sixty-seven percent (67%) also reported a valuable improvement in their general well-being and/or a second health problem.
Outcome by diagnostic groups suggested that Upledger CranioSacral Therapy is particularly effective for patients with headaches and migraine, neck and back pain, anxiety and depression, and unsettled babies. Seventy percent (70%) of patients on medication decreased or discontinued it, and patients’ average general practitioner consultation rate fell by 60% in the six months following treatment.
