Tad Wanveer Biography

Tad Wanveer, LMBT, CST-D has been involved in body work starting in 1987 in New York City, specializing in CranioSacral Therapy since 1993, and joining the staff of the Upledger Institute in 2001 where he served both as clinical therapist as well as head of the Intensive Programs.  Tad moved to Cary, North Carolina in 2006 where he established and currently treats clients at the Cary Center for CranioSacral Therapy, LLC.

Throughout his career Tad has been honored to work closely with John Upledger, D.O., O.M.M. (the founder of CranioSacral Therapy). The time spent in discussion with and working with Dr. Upledger in the clinical setting has been profound and pivotal in Tad’s understanding of the human body and the application of CranioSacral Therapy.

Mr. Wanveer is a certified practitioner of CranioSacral Therapy (CST). He is also certified by the Upledger Institute to teach CST1, CST2, all levels of Clinical Applications Classes, Tutorial Class and Clinical Symposium.

Tad has created three new CST classes. Each class has a different focus, such as: using a glial cell model of the brain and spinal cord during CST, applying specific CST protocols developed by Tad to treat common conditions, and CST teaching methods.

Mr. Wanveer teaches internationally, has been published in numerous periodicals, and has illustrated various works written by Dr. Upledger such as the book Cell Talk, study guides and articles; and produced a DVD set called,
“In Motion. An Animated Exploration Of The Craniosacral Rhythm”.
