Last August Kristen Myers made the discovery with the infants at baby day that the fascial strain in the shoulders almost completely controls all of the structures above. I took that finding to children and adults in my practice. As one example, last September a patient in her 50s presented with severe neck pain and headaches. This person had a big onion. Once the brain started to open, I concentrated on the shoulders and pelvis, just like we do with the infants, during every visit. I gave NO therapy to the neck and almost no cranial work. At every visit there would be nice releases in the pelvis and shoulder/upper back area. Consequently, she has felt significant relief in her neck and head. Her brain cycle was 290 seconds, up from zero seconds. She told me today that she just visited her osteopath for a check up. Before seeing me, she had gone for neck adjustments weekly for 5 years. The doctor was amazed that her neck was loose and in perfect alignment. I know one case does not make a scientific proof, but I am seeing similar results with my other patients. As practitioners, please take strong note of this work. Thank you Krissy, you have made an incredible discovery that will eventually help billions of people.
