CranioSacral Therapy for Fibromyalgia pain

Frida Kahlo lived in chronic pain. Some think she may have suffered from Fibromyalgia.

Are you looking for relief from Fibromyalgia symptoms? Have you tried certain techniques but still found them to be too rough or overstimulating and so they were not effective? Maybe CranioSacral Therapy would be a good fit for you!

Fibromyalgia is now believed to be a result of pain sensing system that is hypersensitive. 

When the central nervous system (CNS) is highly sensitized, the brain is getting more messages for potential harm and fewer messages to filter pain. This results in more sensations being perceived as painful and amplified senses that are difficult to filter. Often, individuals with Fibromyalgia will be able to tolerate gentle work better than deep bodywork. This is where CranioSacral Therapy can be of great value.

Gentle touch is less likely to be perceived as a threat to a highly sensitive nervous system. CranioSacral Therapy stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system so the sympathetic (fight or flight) nervous system isn’t constantly engaged. Regular CranioSacral Therapy sessions can reduce the pain and agitation that accompanies Fibromyalgia.

There are also indications that some individuals with Fibromyalgia have endured traumatic events that has eventually led to the it’s onset. The Somato Emotional Release component of CranioSacral Therapy can facilitate healing and integration of these events that may be causing the CNS to be hyper vigilant.

Ultimately, only you can know what is right for you. While a therapy like CranioSacral may seem like an indulgence it can manifest positive change. I recommend trying 5 sessions, weekly, to really see how CranioSacral Therapy cab make a positive impact in your pain levels, sleep, and cognitive functioning.
