CranioSacral Therapy Can Help Reduce Fibromyalgia Pain

New research shows that CranioSacral Therapy reduces Fibromyalgia patients’ pain. CranioSacral Therapy, (CST) is a light-touch bodywork technique that is complementary, not an alternative to allopathic medicine and treatment. CST is practiced by many massage therapists, and has been found in new research to provide “significant reduction in pain” in fibromyalgia patients.

Aug 13, 2010 Massage Magazine –  randomized testing was published on

Results include:

• After 20 weeks of treatment, the intervention group showed significant reduction in pain at 13 of the 18 tender points;

• At two months and also at one year post therapy, the intervention group still showed significant differences in pain reduction versus baseline in several tender points.

“Craniosacral therapy improved medium-term pain symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia,” the researchers concluded.
