Asthma: Doctor cures it with touch therapy

Asthma is being successfully treated by craniosacral fascial therapy, a form of gentle touch

Asthma is being successfully treated by craniosacral fascial therapy, a form of gentle touch. Pennsylvania-based Dr Barry Gillespie, who has been treating children for years with the technique, says he can usually clear asthma within 10 sessions.

He explains that trauma, which is held in the connective (fascial) tissue, affects the subtle rhythm of the brain and spinal cord; when disturbed, disease and organ dysfunction occur.

A healthy brain cycle, during which it fully expands and contracts, lasts 80 seconds or longer. "The longer the brain 'breathes', the better it functions," he says. In children with asthma, the brain cycle is often less than 10 seconds, and so the primary goal of the craniosacral therapist is the restoration of a healthy brain cycle.

One of Dr Gillespie's recent successes was a nine-year-old boy who had suffered from asthma since he was two months old, and had been on various medications for most of that time.

On his first visit, Gillespie found the boy had a brain cycle of just two seconds. In seven sessions, he was able to increase the cycle to 90 seconds. By then, the boy was off all medication, he was able to play football, and his lungs were clear.
