CST effective in reducing stress hormones within Fire Emergency personel

Abstract

Background: Fire department cadets preparing to become firefighters and paramedics experience high levels of stress when participating in incidents like traffic accidents and fires. Stress adversely affects health and coping with it proves difficult. Unfortunately, there is no single method that reduces stress completely in humans. One non-invasive method for lowering stress hormone levels is craniosacral therapy.  The study group underwent 5-week craniosacral therapy (1x per week). 

Conclusions: Five weeks of craniosacral therapy lowered stress hormone levels. This therapy is a non-invasive tool for reducing stress.

Effectiveness of craniosacral therapy in the treatment of infantile colic.
A randomized controlled trial, 2019

Effectiveness of craniosacral therapy in the treatment of infantile colic. 

Infantile colic is considered to be a mulifactorial clinical condition that effects 30-40% of babies (aged newborn - 6 months).  The condition is associated with inconsoulable prolonged and repeated crying along with difficulties to soothe.  It often evokes stress for parents and caregivers. Treatment options are diverse.  The condition often subsides within the third or fouth month of life.

Conclusion:

Craniosacral therapy appears to be effective and safe for infantile colic by reducing the number of crying hours, the colic severity and increasing the total hours of sleep. Further studies with long-term follow-up are needed to draw more specific conclusions.
