Banyen's Description: 

A landmark book from the founder of CranioSacral Therapy, A Brain is Born explores the dramatic unfolding of the human form in all its potential. Join John E. Upledger as he takes you from the union of sperm and egg through the development of the complex circuitry that makes up the human brain. You’ll learn about birth, growth, function and dysfunction, and how all these aspects influence physical, mental, and emotional well-being. For easy reference, he also maps out the central nervous system and the functions of all its parts.

You’ll discover problems that can alter brain and spinal cord development in each of the first eight weeks of pregnancy, and then monthly right through delivery. A Brain Is Born details some of the insults and injuries that can affect the newborn and commonsense ways to avoid them. Perhaps most importantly, he provides an outline of simple physical tests that can help determine the status of a baby's nervous system, including a step-by-step process for treating potential problems through the use of CranioSacral Therapy and related therapeutic approaches.

This breakthrough book empowers parents with knowledge to help them make practical decisions concerning the health of their children. Invaluable for parents as well as for those who work with children every day, it gives everyone involved in rehabilitation a framework for frank discussion.

John Upledger has written Your Inner Physician and You as well as several texts on CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release.

Publisher’s Description: 

Witness the dramatic unfolding of the human form in all its potential. Join John E. Upledger, D.O.,O.M.M., as he takes you from the first union of sperm and egg through the development of the complex circuitry that makes up the human brain.

Youll learn about birth, growth, function and dysfunction, and how all these aspects influence physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Youll discover problems that can alter brain and spinal cord development in each of the first eight weeks of pregnancy, and then monthly right through delivery.

Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Upledger outlines a series of simple physical tests that can help determine the status of a babys central nervous system and, to some extent, the peripheral nervous system. Then he shows you, step-by-step, how potential problems might be treated using CranioSacral Therapy and related therapeutic approaches.

This breakthrough book empowers parents with knowledge to help them make practical decisions concerning the health of their children. And it crosses the boundaries of many disciplines, including embryology, obstetrics, pediatrics, neurology, and CranioSacral Therapy. A Brain Is Born is as valuable to expectant parents as it is to those who work with children every day.
