"Complementary Therapies"
I’m very glad I’ve found this category. I introduced my partner to foot reflexology about a year ago, and I’ve seen incredible physical benefits. He sees a Master Reflexologist every two weeks In addition to stimulating and improving body systems, she’s been able to passively manipulate his neck to relieve headache and subsequent pain (he has a previous diagnosis of spinal stenosis as well as a history of cervical fracture four years ago with his TBI.)

I’ve been a proponent of essential oils since I was a teen, and we have been able to use several to help with sleep, some anxieties, illnesses, and fatigue.

Has anyone tried or had success with cranio-sacral therapy? He and I are thinking about adding it to his regimen, but don’t have a lot of personal experience or recommendations.

We’re learning, and open to discussion and new suggestions.
