Stroke Recovery and rehabilitation should begin as soon as possible to allow for maximum optimal recovery.
CranioSacral Therapy is particularly well suited to the healing and recovery process from Stroke.
First, CranioSacral Therapy is gentle and less invasive than other therapies – which are keys to it’s effectiveness in supporting your body’s recovery from something as disabling and traumatic as a Stroke.
CranioSacral Therapy brings the nervous system to a better balance within the parasympathetic branch – the part of the nervous system responsible for the repair and maintenance of your body. The more balance between the sympathetic branch of one’s nervous system (fight or flight responses) and the parasympathetic branch (rest, digest, repair, & maintain responses), the more capable your body’s repair and maintenance mechanisms are of recovering from the Stroke disabilities, and improving brain communication and blood flow.
As the vast majority of Strokes are caused by a lack of blood flow to the brain (ischemia), CranioSacral Therapy provides vital improvements in the flow and circulation of blood & fluids, and communication to the brain and throughout the body. Improving the circulation and flow of blood, lymph, and nerve communication reduces the risk of future Strokes and increases the optimization of recovery and rehabilitation after a Stroke.
CranioSacral Therapy also releases abnormal tensions and restrictions in the layers of membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord (meninges), as well as releases muscular and other types of connective tissue constrictions that can delay or inhibit one’s full recovery from a stroke.
Improvements of the following can be attained with CranioSacral Therapy for Stroke recovery and rehabilitation:
CranioSacral Therapy is an effective therapy that supports maximum stroke recovery and healing, as well as supporting the body in coming into a more healthy state, to reduce the risk of suffering future Stroke episodes.
“Sandy, you are my health angel! I had a stroke in August of 2009. While I could move my left arm and hand, I was, however, numb from the top of my head to my hip on my left side. The doctors ran every test and in the end they could find nothing that was causing the numbness. I could not pick up things and hold onto them. I tried various exercises and treatments, but they did not relieve the numbness. I then heard about Sandy through a paramedic who said I should give it a try. I was skeptical at first, but I decided to give it a shot. I saw Sandy for two months, and to my amazement I have almost 90% feeling back. I can use my arm and hand again, and do things I had not done in a long time. Sandy made me feel like a functional person again and that is a great feeling! I recommend her to everyone who has a medical condition that seems impossible. Thank you Sandy!" Roger Jones, Atlanta, GA
