Hi Cristina, I was working with someone several days ago whose chronic neck and shoulder pain returned at the end of our session! I felt so badly also (and this wasn't an MS patient.) I'd love to hear more about tuning in to how much is enough for a person to metabolize during a session. It makes perfect sense to build an awareness of the compensatory patterns and to notice how the interrelations of energy systems all shift when a keystone pattern is shifted.


Hi Cristina,

Thank you for sharing this information. What is the cerebrospinal fluid pump?

Cristina Bornstein, EEM-CP

The Cerebrospinal Fluid Pump.
This is an amazing technique to get rid of headaches and to get the spinal fluid moving which is beneficial to our overall health.

How to:
In each position take three long deep breadths in your nose and out your mouth.

1. Put your left hand on your heart and your right hand over the right side of your head – just over the ear
2. Keeping your hand on your heart move the other hand to the back of your head – from the middle of your head to just over the curve of the head. Your fingers will be pointing to the top of your head.
3. Now put your right hand on your heart and your left hand on the left side of your head – just over the ear.
4. Keeping your hand over the heart take your other hand and place it on the front of your head. Your palm will be on your forehead with your fingers pointing to the center of your head.

You can do this a few times. I did it about three times very slowly to get rid of my headache.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions. Cristina

Hi Lyn!
Yes after this experience I am very aware about what happens after you balance one system and what happens to the others. I think I was tuning into how it felt at the moment and not what it would feel like later. As you know all our systems are so intertwined! It feels terrible when you have done one good thing but then another imbalance arises. I think a good way to tune in is to ask for help. from your "helpers" and also from the persons body. After this experience I was working on someone and I asked "is more work needed?" and I energy tested their spleen and the answer with that person was yes and I ended up having to ground them to make sure the energy I had just "loosened" had somewhere to go. I guess that's what I'm thinking about now - when I move energy where does it go and are the pathways available for it. It's all so interesting! xo cristina

I'm really glad you started this conversation, Cristina. It's so important. I know I've had similar situations where I 'followed protocol' but the results weren't favorable.

It's helped me move in the direction of what I've come to call Yin Tracking. I think I might write a blog post about this way I've cultivated which opens me up to insights about what would be appropriate and beneficial for me to notice, engage, etc. in any particular moment while working with someone else's energies (or my own for that matter). This leads to a much more satisfying, less intrusive, more free flowing approach to energy work.

Actually I have so many things I want to share that I'm finding it a little hard to really get started on them! Thanks for the inspiration here.
