  • Colic
    COLIC – outlined here is an example of one of many conditions responsive to CST:

    Colic is a very distressing and painful condition of muscle spasm of an infant’s digestive tract. The long muscular tube of the gut, through which all the food passes, is controlled involuntarily by the Vagus Nerve. This nerve leaves the brain and passes out of the skull between the temporal and occipital bones at the back of the head. During birth these bones can get jammed together and the gap where the nerve exits the head can compress or trap the nerve. This may in turn irritate or inflame the nerve or cause it to become hyperactive. In this state the nerve may in turn send a surfeit of messages to the gut causing it to contract or induce spasms. CST can greatly relieve this by gently releasing the restricted skull - bones and thereby releasing tension and compression on the Vagus Nerve. Normal nerve function is thus restored thereby stopping the gut spasms and relieving any pain or discomfort.
