Craniosacral Therapy for Migraines

Exciting new research showing positive outcomes using CranioSacral Therapy for migraines.

Craniosacral Research and Case Studies

Headache_2

A 2012 feasibility study with 60 randomized individuals completing 8 weeks of therapy.  Results suggests: “A significant difference, favoring CST, was noted by treatment group in mean headache hours per day 30 days post treatment (1.89 vs. 2.78, p=0.003). HIT-6 scores decreased significantly in both groups, but without a between-group difference at the last treatment visit. MIDAS scores improved in the CST, but not the LSSM group at 4 weeks post treatment. Headache intensity was reduced more in the CST compared with the LSSM group” Further protocol modifications needed to enhance future research of CST for migraines.
