I will also be offering a free twenty minute scan and light touch cranial release for all those who are interested.

Craniosacral Therapy and the CEO of Aetna Insurance

Albert Stern

Mark Bertolini is the CEO of the third-largest health insurer in the United States, Aetna insurance. Recently the Financial Times ran a profile on Mr. Bertolini describing the personal story leading him to be viewed as a maverick among those in charge of insurance companies. 

When his son was ill with a rare cancer Mr. Bertolini found that a hospital staff would view his son, "...as a disease, not a person.” This type of insight has given him insight into moving his company forward.

Craniosacral Therapy and Soldiers with Traumatic Brain Injuries.

Albert Stern

There is a wonderful pilot study in the Journal of Bodywork & Movement Therapies! This study looks at the effects of "light touch" therapy such as craniosacral therapy on active duty soldiers who have experienced brain injuries. 

The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center has tracked more than 300,000 traumatic brain injuries in soldiers since 2000. That is a frightening number. 

The study worked with soldiers undergoing headaches and anxiety. Two sessions of personalized light touch/craniosacral therapy were provided in a two week period. Ninety percent of the participants experienced improvement! 

For example, one participant said, “I feel normal and I haven’t felt like a normal person in years.”

Brain injuries are serious and difficult conditions. Craniosacral therapy is a non-pharmaceutical way to reduce serious, life-altering symptoms. I hope the military will continue to explore craniosacral and other hands-on techniques as a tool to help soldiers with brain injuries.

Study: Significant Reductions in Pain from Craniosacral Therapy

Albert Stern

The Clinical Journal of Pain is a peer-reviewed publication which investigates all aspects of pain-related research. The mission of the journal is to publish research regarding, "promising new pharmacological, surgical, and other therapeutic modalities," in the treatment of pain. 

It is very exciting to see research regarding craniosacral therapy published here! 

The research is titled, Craniosacral Therapy for the treatment of chronic neck pain: a randomized sham-controlled trial. This paper details a study of 54 patients who were treated with either craniosacral therapy or fake (sham) treatments. The patients received eight treatments once a week. Pain levels were measured before treatment, at the end of treatment and three months later. The results were fantastic. 

-  50% pain relief was reported by 44.4% of the craniosacral patients.  
-  20% pain relief was reported by 74.1% of the craniosacral patients. 
-  There were also "significant differences" regarding movement and quality of life. 

These findings are similar to what I find my clients experience with my craniosacral work. It is great to see this work published and exposed to other healthcare practitioners.
