    My recollection is that Dr. Lapp found that craniosacral therapy was helpful in ME/CFS. He also found that ME/CFS patients tended to have very tense upper bodies and exhibited shallow breathing patterns.

    Everything improved; pain, sleep, quality of life, anxiety in the FM patients undergoing craniosacral therapy

    Once the treatment stopped, though, many of the improvements disappeared - the treatment is hitting the symptoms but not obviously the cause. Gotta keep doing this treatment for it to continue working

    Hi Cort,
    I had 3 sessions of cranial-sacral therapy just for general Fibro pain and it had an interesting side-effect. It cured my long-standing TMJ. I threw out my annoying night splint and have not had even a hint of TMJ since then, and that was over a decade ago. There was no need for follow up sessions.
