Craniosacral therapy

This seemed to help. I just wanted to share it with my friends on the message board. Keeping my fingers crossed we all get the help we need to get a good nights sleep.

Did you find out just by chance that this helped or had you learned about it. Was it one session or a series of treatments? Will you continue with this therapy for continued benefit.

Any relief from any source is to be appreciated and we are happy that you have found this.

I agree, if it helped, go for it but in my opinion cranial sacral therapy is complete quackery. My husband had two or three sessions and the therapist did things like run her hands slowly from head to toe about four inches above his body saying things like "I can sense that your liver is hot". Cliff thought he was going to get head and neck massages for headaches, which he did get very briefly the first time. He had to sign a contract for the next sessions which were all mumbo jumbo and no work at all on his head or neck. She wanted him to sign up for more sessions and even phoned him at home.

Well sometimes it’s good to get outside of the world of biology, physics, and chemistry.
