I first saw a boy who continually banged his head on his left shoulder when he was two years of age. His family came from Asia, so I would see him every year or so for CFT. Last year his brain cycle was 240 seconds, but he was still banging his head. I thought that he was trying to free more pressure in his head. But yesterday at age 7, I checked his left shoulder, which had severe strain. I had it reversed! Apparently he was using his head to try to free up his left shoulder. When I worked on it, he started to wince in pain, but never said a sound. This is a child who was always all over the place acting out in CFT. It seemed like a part of him was grateful that this problem was finally being addressed. A few minutes of pain would give him a life of more freedom. The CFT puzzle is not rocket science; it teaches me how to look at a problem in different ways.
