A few days ago, I was given the opportunity to help a patient who was still in severe pain seven days after abdominal surgery to remove a cyst on her ovary. Her surgeon told her she’d be back to normal in seven days and she reported that she was still feeling a lot of pain on that side and it was radiating to her back.
She was discouraged by the continuing high level of pain and worried that it might mean her chances of successful pregnancy were now slim.
While she was squirming to get comfortable on the treatment table for acupuncture, I laid my hands gently on her head and cradled her neck in one of the simplest and most gentle cranial sacral treatment manipulations.
She reported feeling immediate relief and I felt her body relax.
Within a minute or two, she commented, “Your hand on my right shoulder is releasing tension down my back and into my right hip. I feel so much better!”
When we are in pain, it can be easy to focus on specific site of the pain and forget that everything in our body is interdependent. By restoring the natural balance of the entire body, CST unleashes your natural healing ability and allows your body-mind-spirit to flourish in good health!
CST is a light touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and improve whole body health and performance…physically, mentally-emotionally, and spiritually.
