I have CFS/ME and just started a treatment that is aiming at desensitizing the brain stem. So far it is the first treatment that I actually can feel the difference whilst being treated. So I just want to share my experience here. So far what I understand from it is that they have the theory that many of our problems can be related back to an oversensitized brain stem that can cause migraines, headaches, food intolerances etc. The brain stem has become oversensitized because of the top three spinal segments in the neck not being in the right position. The only part that is being treated is the neck and it is done laying face down and only light pressure is being given. No cracking or forcing. The 'nice' thing is, that I could clearly feel when the spots that are causing problems are being touched and that it was slowly wearing of when they where made looser or positioned to where they where supposed to be. I've had many different treatments over the years, also regular manual therapy, but none have been so clearly giving me the experience of what is going on as this one. Usually I just had to trust that people would know what they are doing and hoping that it would somehow help me improve which often wasn't the case. If this one will, time will have to tell. I will have four more treatments the coming two weeks and that should be it. Got a neck exercise I should do that unfortunately is making me feel a bit sick right now. But all in all it was a positive experience that hopefully will help me a little to feel better in the long run. Will try and update as it goes. The method used is developed by a person from Australia named Watson. If others with CFS/ME have experienced this kind of treatment please share. I am all new to this myself so to avoid confusion please stick to this topic only on this thread but feel free to link to other threads if you want to mention alternatives. Thanks!
