Headaches

Planet from Circles Quilt

CranioSacral Therapy is great for headaches.

CST is great for headaches, especially long-term headaches that no longer respond well to other medical approaches. I work with the membranes around the spine and brain. Injuries can create tiny stuck areas in this membrane that pull on the surrounding membranes. That pulling is passed along until it reaches a weak spot that screams.

Tight shrink wrap can squish the brain or clamp down on blood flow deep in the brain. By finding stuck spots and teasing them apart, I can relieve the pulling and improve blood flow.

Or maybe your neck muscles have trigger points, which are tiny areas (the size of a lentil) that are tight and don’t let go. Blood vessels get to the brain by weaving between neck muscles. Tense neck muscles squeeze down on blood vessels, making it harder for blood to reach the brain or backing up the fluid flow from the brain to the body.

Or maybe some twisting reduces blood flow in the cavernous sinuses in your brain or in the glial (lymphatic) network in your brain. Brains need plumbers, too!

CST can help reduce headaches. And it’s very relaxing. You’ll snore. Extra points if you drool.

My career has been a random walk. I started out in lab science, then did science writing, then science fiction, then was a machine operator at a granite counter company, then massage school. In the massage world, I learned about craniosacral; took the first course right away and was hooked. I've been doing it since 2010, and exclusively since about 2013. I'm now a diplomate-certified craniosacral therapist through the Upledger Institute (it just means I'm at the second and highest level of certification). I'm going offroad now, adding in quantum healing. There's always more to come because I love to learn things. So stay tuned!!
