Viral Meningitis Project

In association with Meningitis Now, we are conducting a study into the impact of Craniosacral Therapy as a complementary therapy for those experiencing the distressing after-effects of viral meningitis.

Common after-effects of viral meningitis include exhaustion, headaches, memory loss, anxiety, depression and dizziness/balance problems. Practitioner case studies and recent international CST research, which focused on similar symptoms, suggest Craniosacral Therapy could be beneficial to many sufferers. 

The study involves providing Craniosacral Therapy to ten adults aged 18 plus who have had viral meningitis in the past five years (formally diagnosed by their GP). They are receiving six sessions each on a weekly basis from which we hope to gain further insights into the benefits of Craniosacral Therapy.


In 2016 Dillon became seriously ill with viral meningitis. Here he tells us about the debilitating after-effects and how he benefited from Craniosacral Therapy.

Dillon's story

 

Meningitis Now ran a pilot study in 2013 looking at the impact of some complementary therapies following viral meningitis and already lists the CSTA as a source for finding a registered therapist. We are grateful to the Meningitis Now Trust for facilitating the project by alerting potential eligible participants via their helpline.

We are still seeking funds for the project to go towards paying for the treatments. Please help us to reach our target of £1,800 by making a donation.
