I employ cranial therapy for clients with head injuries, ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and sinus problems. The bones and underlying membranes are gently manipulated to relieve pressure from improper alignment. Western medicine believes that the cranial bones fuse around age seven. Recent research indicates the opposite.
Deep sinus infections are difficult to clear with antibiotics. Cranial therapy “pumps” the “old goop” out of those pockets and provides tremendous relief. Tinnitus can be greatly ameliorated by cranial manipulation. When the jaw is tight and pressing on the surrounding bones, ringing in the ears can occur. Sometimes there is nerve damage causing tinnitus in which case cranial therapy is not effective.
Where cranial therapy is most effective is in the treatment of head injuries/concussions. A recent study done by the National Football League (NFL) on players who suffered concussions, concludes that they are many more times likely to have dementia, mental illness, and nervous disorders. Leaving a concussion “alone” will not solve anything. I have treated people 20-30 years after a concussion who were finally manifesting symptoms. Cranial manipulation is the treatment for post-concussion symptoms such as cognitive difficulties, headaches, dizziness, loss of balance, memory loss, etc.
I began seeing David Weinstock several months after a serious car accident in which I suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). I had cognitive impairment, memory loss, headaches, hearing and vision involvement and that was just the short list. After the first treatment, I left without a headache or pressure in my head that I had lived with for months. Davis is truly masterful at cranial therapy.
