Sadly Hubby and I did not recognize the importance of the Dura when he wrote this in 1996. :-(

I just read TREAPANN. YIKES! Don't anyone do this! It is *NOT* needed!

Obviously Dr. Bart did NOT do his home work, such as Dr. William G. Sutherland in 1939, yes 39.

Babies are born with skulls unsealed, and it is not until one is an adult that the bony carapace is formed which completely encloses the membranes.

“Modern Medicine”, the one that can't seem to figure out a simple chronic pain problem with my wife says that the Skull bones become one calcified unit some time in our teens.

Sutherland's premise is that the bones are distinct, and must be free to move for proper health. The movement is only on the order of millimeters, but movement none the less.

To prove his premise Sutherland took a foot ball helmet and drilled holes in it (Not his head!!!) applied some bolts and thumb screws ect. This allowed him to adjust the pressure on the cranial bones at various pressures and angles. His wife documented his shifts in behavior, as things were fiddled with.

The medical community largely does not accept Sutherland's work. However a Dr. John E. Upledger, D.O., F.A.A.O independently discovered, in 1974, some thing related called the Craniosacral System.

The Craniosacral System is the Dural tube that lines the spine and the inside of the brain. You've all heard of Spinal Fluid, but did you ever stop to think what this Fluid was held in, Where it came from, How it was replaced, How it circulated? Upledger answers all of these questions.

According to Upledger a dysfunction any place in the Cranioscral System can cause any type of symptom. Anything from skin rashes to Ceribral Palsy, dyslexia, Hyperactivity, ect. Upledger claims a 50% success rate in the treatment of some of the “Incurable” problems of our time.

The treatment is simple external manipulation of the C.System, Cranial Bones ect.

There are people all over the world certified to do this. In the Dallas area alone there are over 50 people listed as certified in at least Level-I (There are many aspects to Upledger treatments).

While nothing is ever a cure-all, Upledger's work is well documented, and independently verified.

The laymen introduction is “Your Inner Physician and You: CranioSacral Therapy. Somato-Emotional Release” by John E. Upledger D.O., O.M.M ISBN 1- 55643-148-1.

The doctor's book, with lots of nice drawings and X-Rays, that I can even understand, is “Craniosacral Therapy” by John E. Upledger, D.O., F.A.A.O & Joh D. Vredevoogd, M.F.A. ISBN 0-939616-01-7.

There is a second volume that I've not yet seen “Beyond The Dura Mater”.

You can get this books and more from The Upledger Institute [Outdated contact information removed.]

My wife is undergoing treatment now to see if it helps with her pain problem. She said she feels much more relaxed for days after a treatment. So far not much in the way of pain relief for her problem.

Another important book is the “The Egoscue Method of Health Through Motion” by Pete Egoscue, ISBN 0-06-092430-6. If you want to stay healthy do what the this books says, if you want to get well do what this book says.

The *STRUCTURE* of the body is far more important than most realize. The so called M.D.'s of our time only look at the biochemical aspects. A bad structure, like bad posture, can have bizarre biochemical ramifications.

All of these are external treatments and/or exercises with no drilling necessary…
