The Science Behind New Vision Therapy.
Picture a balloon in the shape of a tadpole. The dural tube runs inside the spinal column, moulds to the inside of the skull plates, and houses the central nervous system – by virtue of the mechanical connections of the tube at the sacrum, and the foramen magnum at the base of the skull, we can use these as bony handles to assess restrictions that exist from head to tail. We are also able to then diagnose and treat any sutural restrictions on the skull itself – whilst these sutures only move about one tenth of a millimetre, any restrictions could impair correct functioning of the cranial nerves. Once free, the skull plates can then be used to gently free off deeper membranous tensions that may exist within the cranium. As these impediments are removed, the body begins to function in a more balanced manner, and the production of Cerebrospinal fluid, to nourish and protect the cranium and protect and lubricate the nervous system in the dural tube, is enhanced. This is vital, as in a healthy, balanced body the weight of the brain and spinal cord can weigh up to 1.5Kgs – if correctly nourished and supported by Cerebrospinal fluid, the weight that the body has to bear becomes an incredible 50 grammes! The production and absorption of Cerebrospinal fluid takes place in a cycle lasting approximately 6 to 8 seconds – the characteristics of this cycle can be assessed as a good indicator to the general health of the body. Once this energetic "foundation" has been established, our toolbox of safe, non invasive, fully clothed therapies is then used to help restore balance to the body's musculoskeletal frame, organs and diaphragms.
By working with the body's energetic fields in this way, we can help to reduce sympathetic nervous tone and enable the body to focus more on digestion, immune system and repair. Because we are working at such deep levels, the results of freeing off energetic restrictions at this core level can help alleviate often forgotten about traumas, and we frequently work with conditions that will not show on x-rays or scans, and where other methods have not been able to help. Our treatment has proven effective in a wide variety of applications, including undiagnosable headaches, back pain, digestive issues including IBS, breathing problems, fertility issues, children's learning and behavioural disorders, insomnia and sleep problems, anxiety, chronic fatigue, dizziness, tinnitus and stress to name but a few. Many of the longstanding conditions that we treat are related to Vagus nerve imbalance. This nerve is one of the most important in the body, and is often compromised as it exits the base of the skull, travels through the chest or gets jammed in the hiatus. This nerve is so vital to normal body function, that several of our one day Workshops focus specifically on techniques to help keep the vagus nerve free and functional.
Because we are working with the inner intelligence of the body to communicate imbalances to us, we are not trying to fix, or heal people, but merely enhancing the body's capacity to heal itself.
WE DESCEND FROM REPTILES!
As we evolved from reptiles into mammals, we developed a more sensitive and reactive "fight or flight" survival mechanism. It was designed to help us cope with short periods of intense stress, then we would revert back to our natural self healing states. In today's high paced world, our nervous systems often struggle to cope with the continuous onslaught of stress that is not as severe as our ancestors, but is relentless! We can often get stuck in fight or flight mode, which has a huge impact on our physical and emotional state of well being. The work we have been developing in recent years for people struggling with PTSD specifically aims to help by unlocking these chronic states of fight or flight, and allowing the body to revert back to its natural state of self healing and repair. Again, this is a big focus of our Workshop curriculum.
