In February, I completed more advanced training that helps relieve tension patterns around the eyes, face and more. Below is from ScienceDaily.com website. The link below provides more information regarding the study.
"Simply moving the eyes triggers the eardrums to move too, even in the absence of sound, says a new study by neuroscientists. The findings, which were replicated in both humans and rhesus monkeys, provide new insight into how the brain coordinates what we see and what we hear. It may also lead to new understanding of hearing disorders, such as difficulty following a conversation in a crowded room.
The researchers found that keeping the head still but shifting the eyes to one side or the other sparks vibrations in the eardrums, even in the absence of any sounds." (credit Science Daily.com)
Glymphatic System, Alzheimer's, Multiple Sclerosis, Strokes, Brain Injuries and CranioSacral Therapy
This weeks Washington Post had an excellent article about scientific research of the glymphatic system of the brain and how it may help understand Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, strokes and traumatic brain injuries. Quote from the article: "the glymphatic system is like a dishwasher for the brain. The brain is very active....and so it produces a lot of junk that needs to be cleaned out.” Read about the study by clicking on this article link.
This past January I received advanced training applying CranioSacral Therapy techniques for the brain and spinal cord. The structures mentioned in this article are addressed. Those with early symptoms of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's may benefit from this very gentle, relaxing work. I also have experience working with clients who have post concussion symptoms.
