A letter from our director Quotes Our Director Cranio-sacral Work Home

"Children remind us of what's important. They help return us to a too often lost perspective, where we stand in relation to generations before and after us."
- Marianne Williamson
Hands on Heads,Inc. (Craniosacral Research) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to expanding the availability of cranio-sacral therapy to babies and children with autism and other learning disabilities.

Cranio-sacral therapy is a gentle, non-intrusive hands-on therapy based on the principles of cranial osteopathy. When autistic children receive cranio-sacral therapy on a regular basis, tantrums and head banging decrease, sleep patterns tend to improve, and emotional response and ability to focus increase. Most significant is the overall calming effect cranio-sacral work has on autistic children and children with Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

Unfortunately, this treatment is not widely available, and long term, regular treatment is prohibitively expensive for most families. Hands on Heads, Inc. will make this treatment available to autistic and learning disabled children in our office, at home or in the classroom on a sliding scale basis.

Hands on Heads, Inc. intends to expand the availability of cranio-sacral therapy by developing and implementing programs and classes designed to train parents, special education teachers and occupational therapists nationwide

Hands on Heads, Inc. will produce video documentaries and publish articles based on its ongoing research.
