I am wondering how long your results typically last with the Cranial Laser Reflex Technique? Do people tend to still need a few treatments per week in the beginning or do they heal faster? I saw you treat that lady with bilateral shoulder restriction and I wanted to know how long she kept the increased range of motion and how many times you needed to treat her.
Thanks for your time.
The results you'll get will vary in the length of time they last... just like with an adjustment or any other treatment. However in performing CLRT and correcting the information stored at the cranial reflex, you are greatly enhancing the healing process by working on a major contributor to someone's chronic problem. And that contributor is there in every case, whether you realize it or not.
It depends mostly on the nature of the problem, the length of chronicity, and the stresses they are under... if a person's pain is due to repetitive stress and they go and do the same thing again and again, of course the immediate results you get won't last very long. But repeat treatments and lifestyle/ergonomics education will help.
Every case will vary to some degree... sometimes you'll just get temporary relief with CLRT (couple of days), but sometimes you can actually "FIX" the person in one try (as much as someone can truly be "fixed," right?) It just depends.
When first starting off, put someone on a regular treatment schedule just like you normally would, and do CLRT along with your adjustments... I usually start at 2x week for moderate cases. As things start to hold longer, we reduce the frequency of visits and teach them where to stimulate on their own head with "acupencture." (You'll see...) This will provide them with relief at home and reduce the need for meds.
The lady in the video with the shoulder problem? Well, She is "fixed," as far as that problem goes: no pain and good ROM to this day. However, she has a very high stress job (oncology nurse), and her shoulders are her weak spot, so she comes in once a month for maintenance so they don't regress.
