Clinic Affiliate Program

For many years, Upledger Institute International (UII) and the Upledger Clinic have stood as strong and authoritative voices for the cause of complementary healthcare. Through the guidance of founder John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., therapeutic innovations such as CranioSacral Therapy (CST) now rank among today's most widely practiced and sought-after Hands On methodologies.

The Clinic Affiliate program was created in answer to requests by Upledger-trained therapists to affiliate their clinics with the Institute in a way that would distinguish their distinctive CST training and services. The resulting program offers the qualified clinics a full range of benefits that include authorization to identify themselves as a facility with Upledger Institute International, Inc., Affiliate designation for the practice of CranioSacral Therapy.
