I’ve been hearing a lot about people using Bio Cranial therapy for fibromyalgia pain management over the last few years and decided to have a treatment recently to find out exactly what’s involved and what the effects are.
I will say right away that it was an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable experience. I didn’t feel like the therapy did anything special that I have not experienced with other forms of massage however. Although this doesn’t take anything away how relaxing and rejuvenating it felt.
To see how Bio Cranial therapy can help you if you suffer from fibromyalgia let’s take a look at what this condition means. What is known to help relieve some of the pain and discomfort, and how Bio Cranial therapy works.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes most suffers a great deal of pain and discomfort. This can affect the whole body, or it can affect certain areas across the body.
Some of the other symptoms that a sufferer may experience include:
- Stiff muscles and joints
- Feeling extremely tired and run down
- Difficulty sleeping, which leads on to fatigue related issues
- Increased pain sensitivity
- Difficulty concentrating and with memory
- Developing irritable bowel syndrome
Unfortunately, the causes and reasons for fibromyalgia are not exactly known. It’s known to be caused, or as a result of chemical imbalances in the brain. Causing the sufferer to feel pain in a different way, and affecting how their nerves in their body react to pain and the messages it sends to and from the brain.
A lot of people who take part in physical activities are affected by this condition. This is believed to be due to some trauma, injury, or infections picked up due to the impact of the sports. It can affect people who experience other forms of trauma too, such as having a huge shock, or suffering with a form of mental illness.
What is Bio Cranial Therapy?
Bio Cranial therapy involves a natural and hand-on healing process to stimulate your brain and body to heal health issues affecting you. Practitioners typically have a very good understanding of the musculoskeletal composition of the body and how disorders affect the rest of the body.
The practitioners will gently manipulate the bones in the cranium to make changes to how the skull and brain are affecting the rest of the body. It’s not painful or uncomfortable as it may sound, quite the opposite it’s very relaxing.
The cranium is a lot more complex and has a greater effect on the rest of the body than you may be aware of. There are many bones that move and play an important role in our health. These bones can be manually adjusted, and even small adjustments make a huge difference to a person’s well-being.
This form of therapy is a complicated and skilled form of treatment. I recommend seeking out a professional with a good reputation if you are interested in pursuing it. I found it to be incredibly reinvigorating, I wasn’t targeting a specific health complaint but I wouldn’t hesitate to use it if I were.
Using Bio Cranial Therapy for Fibromyalgia
A question that often comes up is, can Bio Cranial therapy help to lessen the pain of fibromyalgia? This is because not only do sufferers deal with a lot of pain and discomfort and look for ways to treat the pain. But being a therapy that directly affects the head and brain, it’s an obvious choice to try and change the root of the problem.
I discussed this with the therapist that carried out my treatment and she said she has performed this therapy for people suffering from fibromyalgia and seen some positive results. As with all forms of therapy, the results vary from person to person.
My experience with all most of the alternative treatments is to give it a try. There is no doubt in my mind that Bio Cranial practices can help with fibromyalgia. It helps lessen the pain of a wide range of painful health conditions.
There is no doubt that some people will see a huge difference in the pain they are feeling. That makes it more than worthwhile. So why not give it a try for yourself and see how you feel afterwards?
