CranioSacral Therapy/SHEN

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a form of bodywork or alternative therapy focused primarily on the concept of "primary respiration" and regulating the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by using therapeutic touch to manipulate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium. To do this, a practitioner will apply light touches to a patient's skull, face, spine and pelvis.

At the beginning of last year I went into adrenal failure - I couldn't sleep, eat or do anything more than struggle a few metres to the nearest place to collapse into - and I could find absolutely nothing to help me. I had taken sleeping pills, B12 injections, and doing anything and everything that I thought might help to absolutely no avail. On the advice of my massage therapist, I contact Jason Jackson, an Auckland craniosacral therapist, and booked in to see him with no expectations. 

Within two sessions my appetite was finally stimulated and I was able to start eating again. Within three sessions I was off the sleeping pills and sleeping almost completely through the night for the first time in four months. I don't know what happened, or why - but it was the most incredible turn around for me and ended months of utter misery. Although I used it for just the immediate needs of restoring my sleep and appetite, I fully intend on going back again to see whether it can aid in deeper, longer standing physiological issues.
