A Self Help Technique to Induce Still Point and Release Tension
THE DEVICE : Put two tennis balls into the toe of a long soft sock. Tie a knot close to the balls so that they are snug and tight next to each other. Pull the open end of the sock back over the two balls so that there is two layers of padding over the tennis balls.
POSITIONING : Recline on your back on the floor, the bed or the sofa without a pillow. Place the balls uder your head so that the entire weight of your head rests on the two balls. They are placed about 1/3 the way up the back of the head on the occipital bone. It is just above the neck muscles where they attach to the lower part of the skull. The level is just above that of the ear openings.
THE BENEFITS : This is a good technique for enhancing tissue and fluid motion, especially relaxing connective tissues throughout the body, and restoring flexibility of the autonomic nervous system responses. It is beneficial for degenerative arthritis. It can lower a fever as much as four degrees. It can reduce lung congestion and edema. It has been used to improve auto-immune disease, autistic behavior of children, and anxiety. This technique can be of benefit to most individuals and is rarely contraindicated.
THEORY : Induction of momentary still points in the CranioSacral rhythmical impulses is an effective technique for mobilizing the CranioSacral System's inherent self-corrective abilities, which in turn can have profound beneficial effects throughout the body.
