The body is designed to maintain balance at all cost. So when you see someone limping or favoring one leg, it is logical that the other leg is doing something that it would not be doing if they were walking normally. The body kind of torques and twists to accommodate the leg, so one shoulder will generally drop lower than the other and probably be rotated a little more forward, etc.. What do you think happens to the neck? And is the neck attached to the head? Sure! So lets look at the backwards.
It is know that there are 22 bones in the head and they are connected by sutures of a sort. These suture areas allow the 22 cranial bones to flex, ever so slightly to allow for the pulse of the brain. Just think of when a baby goes through the birthing canal. In the past, it was believed that those flexible bones would fuse together and then never move again. Now we know they still move, just minimally. However, they can become stuck or unable to move for many reasons. Some believe the movement of the cranial bones through the birthing canal is a necessary trip to kick start the pulse of the brain, otherwise, they become stuck and lead to asthma, illness etc. The common use of forceps and suction during birth might also be restricting the pulse from starting.
Once the bones are immovable, all types of things become restricted in the body. Why? Because the Dura Mater connects nearly everything from the brain, through the spinal nerves and this material eventually connects to the fascia (which covers every muscle fiber and group of fibers in the body). If the bones are restricted, the Dura Mater is not able to work properly, eventually the body has to compensate so it twists itself up over the years. Eventually, one day you look in the mirror and one hip is higher than the other. One shoulder is higher than the other, your head is slightly tilted and cocked to one side. One leg is shorter than the other, etc. But all you notice is this slight limb that seems to be getting worse even though you have never had an injury and your shoes wear out differently on one side. Of course an injury could also affect the cranial bones.
So here we are with these immovable cranial bones....what to do, what to do... There are techniques now which address just that, and take only minutes to do. I call them "cranial techniques" :)
Cranial Techniques loosen the cranial bones to allow movement again and the results I am getting are FASCINATING! 25 year ringing-in-the-ears is gone after one treatment. Pain is gone, vision starts to clear, improved mental clarity, neck pain gone, shoulder pain gone, numbness in the arm gone. Most patients say they feel they can finally take a deep breath without struggling or stand up without back pain. What I notice is that most people have one eye lower than the other or slightly more closed. After the treatment they are the same level and size!
I learned this technique several years ago, but only recently began to use it again. There are so many advantages. Nearly everyone has some type of structural holding pattern and can benefit. So if you are not near my offices in Fort Lauderdale, FL or Kelleys Island, OH, try to find someone in your area and give it a try. I recently worked on a 50 year old, that has practiced yoga for years and even she exclaimed it helped her.
