Farming and the web - people standing by tractor - Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy

Farming and the Web

Farming can be a dangerous occupation.

A thirty-eight-year-old man presented with whole-body pain centered in his neck and back. He had digestive issues with many muscle spasms.

He has suffered two major farming accidents in his life. When he was eighteen, he fell twelve feet and landed on his left hip. When he was twenty-eight, a hard blow to the top of his head compressed his neck and spine.

These two injuries have compromised all aspects of his life. He has trouble getting around, and the pain wears on him emotionally. Instead of actively farming, he repairs tractors, a less strenuous job. Over the years, he has consulted with a cranial osteopathic physician, chiropractors, and other health professionals without positive results.

He presented with an expected zero-second brain cycle and a tight fascial web. The Gillespie Approach is different from “adjusting” or “fixing” modalities because providers just listen to the body and let it direct the healing. We completely trust that the body can heal itself beautifully.

When I held his left leg, I was hoping that it would go back in space and time to revisit that first accident. It did as the hip fascia was pulling hard into his lower back.

When I held the back of his neck, I was hoping that it would go back in space and time to revisit that second accident. It did as the fascial web was pulling down into his spine.

I spent the entire session listening to these two areas and allowing the body to do what it needed to do to release its craniosacral fascial web. At the end of the session, his system opened nicely with a sixty-second brain cycle.

My hope is that he continues therapy to allow his body to self-correct as much as possible. Gillespie Approach Training can unlock the healing door for many patients.
