Einstein, brain health and well being… and the door into sleep and the Glymphatic System.

In one of my Advanced CranioSacral therapy trainings “Touching the Brain” – Stimulating Self-Correction through the Glial Interface”.  Wow!  What does that mean?  Yes, I agree. Let me expand on that title a bit.

There have been new discovers on how the glia (white part) of the brain for Central Nervous System(CNS) development, neuron signaling, brain and spinal cord immune response, CNS dysfunction or disease, short and long-term memory and much more.

Part of the discovery was when they dissected Einstein’s brain and realized he had more glia and that previously neuroscientists thought these glia cells were connective tissue but now this exploration of the brain of Einstein, speculated that glia was involved in mental activity which was not a neurological concept until this discovery.

When we experience CNS dysfunction  that creates immune or auto-immune system strains in the glial interface; this can manifest in diseases and conditions from the likes of a common cold to balance issues, memory loss, and serious neurological conditions as:  MS, Parkinsons, ALS, etc.  There are discoveries coming out daily on ways to improve the symptoms of these conditions through the interface of the glial cells and the CranioSacral System and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid.

From this advanced training, my CranioSacral therapy practice has become deeper and more refined in how we can access and assist with “self-correcting” the even, balanced flow of the cerebrospinal flluid (CSF).  Because the CranioSacral System (CSS) interconnects with the innermost membrane layer of the CSS; these layers connect to the bones of the cranium and the spinal column. It is a dynamic pathway to correct central nervous system strain patterns.

CranioSacral therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress caused by these strain patterns, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well being.

And to go further on the recently (2012) recognized glymphatic  system we can see how CranioSacral work does in fact cleanse the brain of toxins.  I think the glymphatic system is well presented in this YouTube by Dr. Irminne Van Dyken.

How to stay healthy by toning your vagus nerve

I started being interested in the effects of the toning or stimulating the vagus nerve that could reduce stress and anxiety. The vagus nerve runs from the brain to the stomach and calms the nerves and balances the systems. I recently ran across an article in Medium explaining how the vagus nerve works and how it could help with Covid 19.
I would like to share it. Wishing you all a safe and peaceful 2022.

I was a bit resistant about how to convey the message of ease, connection, guidance and support while unable to use my hands. I was presently surprised at my clients responses because they were able to really experience what they were sensing in a very supportive way and notice how much calmer they became after our sessions together. Here is what they said:

“When we asked this question “where does it feel a little easy” is so helpful to me. It’s a low, achieveable bar to clear. It’s not intimidating. It’s not asking where I am COMPLETELY relaxed. I feel uptight in a lot of places, but I can find a place / part where I feel “a little easy,” which is a good place to start. I hope that’s helpful. Thanks again! C S (New York)

“I have tried many different ways of calming down and I have never really found something that makes me really feel comfortable. But this Zoom (online) session with Karen has! Thank you. KG (Hanover, Germany)
