Here’s a spiffy alternative health idea: craniosacral therapy!

The best Craniosacral Therapist in Columbus, Ohio area is Lisa Gillespie over at Gillispie Partners in Wellness, LLC. Just thought you’d want to know! If you’d like to read up on cranial sacral therapy you can always just find the wikipedia entry and bone up.

Fun facts:

Cranioascral therapy is also known as Cranial Sacral Therapy — they’re both the same thing.

Lisa is the guru of Columbus craniosacral therapists. She’s been doing it since the nineties and there’s just no one better qualified to manipulate your skull!

It’s a form of bodywork that is fantastic, in my opinion, for addressing head injuries — no matter how old!

Key concepts include the Primary Respiratory System, the mobility of the cranial bones, Mobility of the intracranial and intraspinal dural membranes, Fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid, Inherent motility of the central nervous system. Cranial Osteopathy came before craniosacral therapy. You’ll also run across another word called palpation. Therapists say they “palpate” the cranial bones.

While there are a small number of incidences of complications with victims of traumatic brain injury (i.e. “TBI”), as a TBI victim myself, I’ve had spectacular results. I think craniosacral therapy is a superb therapy to try for victims of intracranial injury or head injury of any kind.

Isn’t it funny how if you go to the Wikipedia page on CST, what you find is that the QuackWatch goofballs have basically taken over that page, and it now subtly leaves you with the impression that cranial sacral therapy is only for fools or generally uncool people? The nerve. Anyway, something you should know about the Quackwatch folks (go ahead and Google them), is they hate absolutely anything that is not strictly orthodox medicine. At all. They think chiropractors are demons. They think vitamins are for geeks and suckers. A federal judge once tossed a case they filed out of court, calling them dweebs. Well, not dweebs, but he said something I think a reasonable person would not take as a compliment, but it’s getting pretty late as I write this.

The point is, watch out for the forces trying to tell you what to think. At least I’m honest that I’d like to convince you to give craniosacral a try, and I’m basing this on direct experience!

Today we sadly announce this: barring unexpected event or events, our occupation tent will come down Sept. 9th at 11:59 PM as a result of actions taken by the Columbus City Council which restrict the constitutional 1st [...]

U.S Students Plan Convergence to Catalyze National Movement

Students, Youth will converge in Columbus, Ohio to build a stronger movement.

June 27, 2012 — Students from all over the U.S. are planning a National Student Power Convergence in Columbus, Ohio from August 11-14th. Inspired by successful, youth-led campaigns at home and transformative movements abroad, students in the U.S. feel the need for a national movement. The convergence will bring together hundreds of students from across the country to discover the connection between our struggles and ignite a broader movement for justice and equality.

The convergence will feature appearances from organizers of international movements like the spokesperson for Québec’s CLASSE student union and noted speakers like Naomi Klein. Participants will learn from leaders of historic student movements and key organizers behind successful campaigns to stop the Keystone Pipeline and fight the deportation of Dream Act eligible students.

The convergence will include trainings designed to equip attendees with movement building skills and strategy sessions to connect a wide variety of organizers from across the student movement. Students from fledgling statewide networks like New York Students Rising, the Ohio Student Association, and many from more established groups are organizing the event.

This is the most diverse, tech-savvy generation in our history – and the first that can’t expect a higher standard of living than its parents. Our generation sees its opportunities increasingly eroded by inequality, racial injustice, and austerity. The political system, ruled by corporate interests, no longer serves the people. Students refuse to allow our country to continue going fiscally, morally, and culturally bankrupt.

“As students from the U.S., we come from a legacy of progress through resistance. Now it’s time to unite and realize that nobody can shape our future but ourselves,” says Biola Jeje, a CUNY student helping to plan the convergence.

From the mass student movements of the 1930s to student sit-ins of the 1960s, young people have instigated some of the most significant social and economic shifts in our nation’s history. Groups like SNCC and SDS were among the most influential change-makers of the 20th century. Now, it’s our turn.

The past year has shown resurgence in youth activism. From Wisconsin to Keystone XL, from Occupiers to DREAMers, youth in the U.S. already have the will and determination to forge a politically transformative movement. The convergence will provide a shared space where U.S. youth can determine a path for collective action.
