I have posted about this inexpensive, booby shaped dream product before but since I cannot quite work this blog, you get a new one. 🙂 This product is pretty amazing, I have to say. Since many of us are extra on edge as of late, perhaps this might be a way to help. One can get a craniosacral massage (I do want to try this next) but I use the still point inducer which is fairly cheap and I don’t need to rely on another person for the relief. There is a link of places to buy at the end of this post. I bought mine at Amazon.
“A Still Point can occur spontaneously or it can be induced by the CranioSacral Therapist to help facilitate the release of restrictions in the membranes around the brain and spinal cord. It works quite simply. The delicate interruption of fluid flow causes a momentary buildup of fluid in the system. When the tissues are subsequently released and the fluid begins to flow again, it gently “flushes” the system, causing the membranes to stretch a bit and release tissue restrictions or adhesions. …The results, which also include increased blood flow to the brain, can have a therapeutic effect on the central nervous system and the entire body. Some other highly beneficial effects include headache and muscle pain relief, a reduced state of stress and ready response, a deep state of relaxation, and a general sense of well-being.”
…Therapists can induce a Still Point by using manual techniques to resist either the flexion or extension phase. Generally, it is easier and more efficient to resist the filling (flexion) than the emptying (extension). Still Points can also be self-induced using either a homemade tool (two tennis balls placed in an athletic sock and knotted at the end), or a simple device called the Still Point Inducer…”
You can buy one at several stores online:
