CVST vibrations are a relaxing massage modality technique in which Cranial muscles and tissues are pressed and released in an up and down movement. A Cranial sound vibration massage creates a vibrating sound and shaking motion onto the facial muscles and facia muscles that can be performed in a soothing or a more stimulating way. Lighter vibration sound techniques can also help stimulate the Parasympathetic nervous system which is linked to the Autonomic Nervous System and the Sympathetic nervous system and helps the Cranial muscles relax. An increasing speed of vibrations sounds can be used to stimulate the circulatory system and loosen soft tissues. The length of the CVST massage session is anywhere between 10 and 60 minutes depending on your individual needs.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) come in many forms, from physical and mental abuse to neglect and household dysfunction. In 1998, CDC-Kaiser Permanente published a groundbreaking study that investigated the impact of ACEs on physical and mental health problems in over 17,000 adults. During the study, the adults were given a survey asking about 10 different types of ACEs and if they had experienced them prior to the age of 18. The study showed a direct correlation between ACEs and future health complications.
The thoracic outlet is the area of the shoulder/neck where the nerves (brachial plexus) and blood vessels (subclavian vessels) pass from the cervical area toward the axilla. Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a set of symptoms due to compression and/or irritation of these vessels and nerves. There is much controversy among physicians and diagnosing this syndrome is very difficult. It is often confused with carpal tunnel syndrome, brachial plexus syndrome, rotator cuff syndrome, and bursitis. Always see your MD or an MD specialist for diagnosing this syndrome and getting the OK for deep tissue massage first.
The Mayo Clinic reports a 60-minute massage can lower cortisol, the stress hormone, by up to 30 percent after just one session. A study published in the journal Depression and Anxiety found participants who received regular massage therapy for 12 weeks had a 50 percent reduction in anxiety symptoms.
