After an evaluation, Tom gave me gentle exercises to do at home, and assigned me to his assistant, Mike, for twice-weekly courses of craniosacral therapy. This basically consists of lying on a table while Mike applies very light pressure, something like five grams, which is practically nothing, to my head and sometimes to my lower back. According to Tom, the function of the therapist is to help the body release restrictions – which it has been unable to overcome on its own – that inhibit the body’s normal, self-correcting tendencies.
Sounds a little out there. But I'm not a doctor or a therapist. All I know is, before the accident I was exercising, swimming, dancing, and so on and on. Now I'm an achy mess. If he can get me back to where I was before, I'll be a believer.
