  • The Purpose of this study is to explore the effects of Craniosacral therapy(CST) on the chronic headache patients, and the research was used the one-group pretest-posttest design. The subjects were 31 chronic headache patients, who received Craniosacral therapy by once per week for 6 weeks. The data were collected from July 1, 2003 to August 28, 2003. In order to evaluate the effects of craniosacral therapy, Visual Analogue Scale(VAS) for headach intensity, blood pressure, pulse rate, respiration rate, craniosacral rhythm rate, depression and stress perception were measured before and after treatment. The results are as follows : 1) The mean score of intensity of headache (VAS) significantly decreased after each session of Craniosacral therapy(F=86.14, p<.001). 2) The mean score of systolic blood pressure significantly decreased after each session of craniosacral therapy(F=6.99, p<.001), and the mean score of diastolic blood pressure significantly decreased after 3rd session of Craniosacral therapy(t=5.710, p<.001). The means of pulse(F=6.19, p<.001), respiration (F=7.93, p<.001) and craniosacral impulse rate(F=22.84, p<.001) significantly decreased after each session of Craniosacral therapy. 3) The means score of depression significantly decreased after Craniosacral therapy(t=6.627, p<.001) and stress also significantly decreased after Craniosacral therapy(t=5.987, p<.001). Therefore, these results of this study suggest that Craniosacral therapy could be an effective nursing intervention to reduce the intensity of headache.

  • Objectives : This study was conducted to evaluate the therapeutic effects of Chuna Craniosacral therapy on headaches. Methods : 1. A combination of keywords, such as headache and Chuna Craniosacral therapy, were searched based on studies published in 11 databases (Pubmed, CAJ, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, KMBASE, KISS, KISTI, NDSL, RISS and DBPIA) up to October 31st, 2019. 2. The subjects were randomized controlled clinical studies using Chuna Craniosacral therapy. 3. We used the Cochrane perverse assessment tools for quality assessment. Results : 1. Six randomized controlled clinical studies were selected, and all 404 patients were evaluated. 2. As a result of the meta-analysis, Chuna Craniosacral therapy and scalp acupuncture showed no difference in treatment effect. 3. Chuna Craniosacral therapy showed a significant difference in treatment effect compared to Maitlands mobilization. 4. Chuna Craniosacral therapy showed a partial difference in treatment effect compared to low intensity magnetotherapy. 5. Chuna Craniosacral therapy group showed a significant effect on pain reduction compared to the untreated group. 6. All six papers showed a high degree of bias risk, with no mention of side effects or adverse events. Conclusion : This study provided only a limited assessment of the curative effects of Chuna Craniosacral therapy's headache treatment. However, there was no mention of side effects, and given the therapeutic effects analyzed in individual papers, it is believed that Craniosacral therapy can be used safely to treat headaches.

  • Objectives: Patients with nonodotogenic toothache are increasing in numbers. However, there is no reliable treatment guide in both conventional & complementary medicine. Also, there are not much clinical case of patients with nonodotogenic toothache in oriental medical field. We investigated effect of using craniosacral therapy and acupuncturing suboocitptal muscle on patient with nonodotogenic toothache. Methods: 72-year old female patient with nonodotogenic toothache was treated with using craniosacral therapy and acupuncturing suboocciptal muscle. Results: We had a satisfactory result with using craniosacral therapy and acupuncturing suboocitptal muscle. The patient's VAS grade improved to 1(Rt.), 5(Lt.). Conclusions: We reach a conclusion using craniosacral therapy and acupuncturing suboocitptal muscle improve patient with nonodotogenic toothache. And more study about this disease is needed.

  • Objectives : This study was aimed to find out the physiological mechanism of craniosacral therapy, especially in CV4 technique and cranial rhythmic impulses. Methods : Recent studies were reviewed for cranial rhythmic impulses, and the ancient and present text were reviewed for the therapy of sub-occiput and cranial-suture part. Results and Conclusions : 1. Suboccipital muscles releasing may have made CV4 technique to effect. 2. The mechanism of the meridians of acupuncture and craniosacral system can be cooperative together in many parts of the clinical treatments. 3. Arterial vasomotor waves have a frequency similar to reports of cranial rhythmic impulses. The methods which have relation to heart rate variability, will be useful for the study of craniosacral therapy.

  • The relationship between dental occlusion to temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), systemic symptoms and health has been discussed and theoretical reasons have been the foundation for treatments performed by various areas of alternative treatments. It has been noted that there have been increase in the available methods and treatments for the general public regarding these areas of treatment modality. Korean Academy of Stomatognathic function and Occlusion have carried out literature review of five of those treatment theories available; they are Craniosacral mechanism, Osteopathy, Myodontics, Chirodontics, Dental distress syndrome and Quadrant theorem. Each of these modalities will be introduced and brief summary of their efficacy and efficiency will be discussed.

  • Objectives The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of E10 on the relief of cervical myalgia. Methods This study is a one group pre-post, pilot trial test. After the approval of institutional review board (IRB), we have recruited 25 patients suffering from cervical myalgia. 23 patients (2 patients dropped out) was treated by using E10 on the cervical muscle and acupuncture points, three times a week for a total of two weeks from February 2016 to April 2016. Evaluations of VAS for bothersomeness of neck pain (VASB), VAS for pain intensity (VASP), NDI, SF-36, X-ray, thermography, etc. before and 1 week after treatment were carried out. The primary outcome measure was the VASB, measured 1 week after the end of the therapy. Results VASB scores was significantly decreased from $72.5{\pm}9.9$ to $50.4{\pm}9.9$. VASP scores was significantly decreased from $71.5{\pm}10.5$ to $48.5{\pm}18.3$. Results showed significant improvements in VASB, VASP, NDI, SF-36 from the baseline. However, in X-ray, thermography, there was no singnificant difference. Conclusions This study demonstrates the effectiveness of E10 treatment for relieving cervical myalgia.
