CST and brain health
Updated: Dec 29, 2020
I've been teach assisting virtual cranio courses several times this year with the added benefit of working with Upledger Insitute instructors who are actively researching within the field.
One of those Michael Morgan, LMT CST-D, has been studying how CST may help reduce the brain plaques found in dementia caused by Alzheimer's Disease.
Within the tumble of reading on the subject I found this article supporting the research Dr. John Upledger was performing in the mid 1970s to early 1980s at Michigan State about cranial bone motion in relationship to this fluid cerebrospinal system.
This is why receiving CST regularly supports brain health, by supporting the system to clear fascial membrane restrictions within the meninges: the dural tube and intracranial membrane system.
Have your sleep habits changed at all since the pandemic began? Do you experience the benefit of using your stillpoint inducer prior to bedtime/naptime encouraging your system to downregulate as it moves into rest and repair?
If you've parked your inducer, pull it out again as part of your bedtime ritual. There is evidence to support intentionally flushing your brain with CSF is a good thing. And new research included in today's article in The Atlantic shows the importance of sleep for support to your immune system in the face of this global pandemic.
Sweet dreams, all.
