Life at Zero-Second Brain Cycle

One of my patients had an aha moment.

A woman in her late 20s presented a few months ago with this list of conditions—headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, back tightness, brain fog, and generally feeling miserable. The best years of her life were centered around health challenges.

She presented with a zero-second brain cycle, a tight fascial web, and a traumatic birth history.

Over the course of a few months, therapy opened her craniosacral fascial system beautifully, and she felt like she was really alive. The difference in her life was night and day.

Recently, she was involved in a whiplash auto accident, and her old life returned immediately starting with the brain fog. Not surprisingly, at her office visit, her brain cycle had returned to zero seconds.

During that session, the pressure on her brain started to release, and her cycle opened to 70 seconds. She said that she felt her body coming alive again.

Her telling comment was, “How was I able to live all of those years while feeling so terrible?” I thought that feeling was all that you had ever known—you had never experienced what healthy brain motion and its positive effects were like.

In the big picture, about 134,000,000 humans are born every year. I always wonder how many will be challenged by their lifetime effects due to their birth trauma.

Every zero-second cycle patient presents with her or his own list of health issues according to the life traumas from conception. They will probably be searching for never-to-come answers and will settle with compromised lives without being the best they could have been.

If we could just acknowledge that those 40 weeks can create soft tissue tightness and some gentle massage at birth can change lives, I believe the world would be a better place for everyone. That is my wish for the planet.
