Rogers JS, Witt, PL: The Controversy of Cranial Bone Motion.
J Orthop Sports Phys Ther. 1997;26:95-103.
In this article, Mr. Rogers, MS PT and Mr. Witt PhD, PT and Associate Professor, Division of Physical Therapy, University of North Carolina,
Chapel Hill, review and discuss cranial bone literature as it relates to CranioSacral Therapy. Their review of the literature suggests that the "possibility of cranial motion appears real and worth further inquiry." In their discussion, they note "biomechanical evidence clearly shows that adult human suture has properties very distinct from that of cranial bone, making it highly improbable that sutures are completely ossified as some authorities have contended."

In this study, the authors found that the intraexaminer reliability exists when a rhythm is palpated by therapists trained in CranioSacral Therapy and that the rate is reproducible by a given examiner. The authors also found that "there was no relationship between the rate of the CranioSacral Rhythm of a subject and the subjects and the examiner's heart and respiratory rates

The Effects of Upledger CranioSacral Therapy on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Symptomatology in Vietnam Combat Veterans by John E. Upledger, DO, OMM, Barry S. Kaplan, MD, Russell A Bourne, Jr. PHD, ABPS, Richard B. Zonderman PhD, Subtle Energies & Energy Medicine, Vol 11, Number 2. (2000)
The Upledger Institute provided two-week intensive Treatment for Vietnam veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as diagnosed by the Veteran's Affairs medical division. These patients received psychological evaluation tests at the times of entry and exit into and out of the program. The therapy used primarily was CranioSacral Therapy and its progeny Energy Cyst Release, SomatoEmotional Release and Therapeutic Imagery and Dialogue. The results obtained strongly suggest that PTSD may be more successfully treated when the therapy includes corrections of the craniosacral system, the release of foreign energies and conscious-nonconscious integration.

"A Daughter's Wild Ride" by Constance Hale, Alternative Medicine, April 2003.
The writer describes how while riding a horse she suffered a fall and a resulting anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear. After following the prescribed treatment of rest and anti-inflammatory medication she felt little relief from the pain. She tried a course of CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release which aided her greatly in not only relief from pain but also in uncovering and resolving feelings related to the accident and her childhood.

"In Body Mind Healing, Clients May "Release" Without Recalling Trauma", by Martha Bramhall, MSW, LISW, YourHEALTH Magazine, February 2004.
The article discusses how body mind healing helps rid the mind and body of residual psycho-physical effects related to a past traumatic physical or emotional experience. These incidents leave energy imprints on the body. During a session, the therapist works to release these imprints to gentle manipulation and dialogue.

"SomatoEmotional Release: A Whole-Person Treatment, by Alice D. Lindsey, MS, LMT, CST, PATH Newsletter, January 2006.
