RESEARCH: More About MSRA Superbugs (Part 2 of 1!!)

In the spirit of multi-part articles this month…CA-MRSA, “the new bug in town,” is a strain of bacteria that spreads staph infection in nonhospital settings to people who are otherwise healthy.

CA-MRSA infections begin as a small, red bump often mistaken for a bug bite or pimple but then rapidly turns into a boil or abscess. It can cause bone, joint, and blood infections and pneumonia.

Best line of defense? GOOD handwashing (hot water, soap, vigorous sudsing, the whole nine yards) and careful observation of your skin. Also, use an immuno-stimulating oil like tea tree or Thieves.

MODALITY MINUTE: What exactly is Craniosacral Therapy (CST)? (Part 2 of 3)

This bodywork was developed in 1970 by osteopathic surgeon, John Upledger, who discovered that the spinal column throbbed with a rhythm separate from that of breath or heart rate, the craniosacral rhythm. CST can alleviate pain and stress and is especially effective in treating week-long migraines, TMJ, sinus problems, and insomnia. It has been used to effectively treat cerebral palsy, nervous disorders, some forms of paralysis, and depression.

Have a CST testimony of your own to share? Here is what others are saying…

“I had my first cranio massage today. I really didn’t know what to expect, since I have only had deep tissue massage. Monica cradled my head, and I kept waiting for something to happen. She explained what was happening during regular intervals. I have scoliosis and have a lot of neck pain. Gradually, my neck muscles began to lengthen and become less tight. Monica explained that I was the one initiating all the movement, she was just following my lead. My head began to feel very heavy as my muscles slowly relaxed. I felt the pain lessening. It truly was a unique experience, and I believe regular sessions will eventually help with the pain.” -R. Tschinkel
