I had a similar issue and what worked for us was to offer dd the breast about an hour after I bottle fed her. When she was full but not too full she was more willing to accept the breast and would nurse happily at that time. I made a point to do that at least once per day and we still enjoy an active nursing relationship at 14 months. She went through what felt like a long period of refusing the breast and this resolved that problem.
Go for the domperidone. It wasn't the panacea that I was searching for, but it was very helpful. And every other mother I know or have heard of using it has had great success with it.
Acupuncture can also help bring in your milk.
I would not see a cranio-sacral therapist unless I was really sure of his/her credentials. I was injured by a supposedly good, and very successful, chiropractor during my pregnancy and now see an Osteopath. She's taught me alot about how chiros and c/s therapists are offshoots of osteopathy and, especially people practicing c/s therapy, are often undereducated. She sees alot of people who are injured by inexperienced or undereducated therapists. That's not to say there aren't many awesome ones out there, but be sure to look around before you leap.
