Her biggest complaint was a deep tightness in the pit of her stomach extending to her mid-back. She presented with a zero-second brain cycle; her craniosacral fascial system may have become stuck from the birth process when she pushed hard four or five times.
In connecting the dots in therapy, the fascia from her tight diaphragm was straining into her cranium, creating her zero-second brain cycle and headaches. At the end of the visit she experienced significant relief as her diaphragm released and her brain cycle opened to 130 seconds.
She did not have any symptoms from the tearing; this fresh strain released nicely at this visit. We believe this pelvic floor strain, left untreated, could have created many issues where the fascia could start pulling on all the superior structures in time.
In my perfect world she would have been treated in the hospital with her newborn. Currently, this approach for mothers is unknown in the conventional birthing world. In my mind the mother-child dyad needs to go home happy.
