Strabismus and Pelvic Strain

A 14-month-old baby with strabismus from Italy is visiting his Philadelphia aunt. I believe that the root of his eye issue is based in twisted pelvic craniosacral fascial strain. In CFT we deal with tight areas of the body. But even more importantly, we realize that an area may be tight because fascia from another distant area may be pulling on it. The craniosacral fascial system is all connected. Our infant research told us that pelvic fascia can pull on any above body structure.

In this case the aunt related that the doctors in Italy said that his trunk is twisted. In connecting the dots in our world, that twist appears to be corkscrewing up into his neck and left eye. Please remember that the four eye rectus and two eye oblique muscles have fascia. Craniosacral fascial strain in one muscle can create an eye imbalance and strabismus.

If I ruled the world, every newborn would have the BBS and CFT to be craniosacral fascial strain free asap. Eye surgery, which may be necessary for some children, would always be the last resort

  1. Thanks for these excellent words Dr. Barry Gillespie “If I ruled the world, every newborn would have the BBS and CFT to be craniosacral fascial strain free asap. Eye surgery, which may be necessary for some children, would always be the last resort”. I have been affected by this from childhood. In all my searches in the internet, I found your words very soothing to me, your words “Craniosacral fascial strain in one muscle can create an eye imbalance and strabismus.” have given hope to me that I am understanding this problem in the right direction.

    A little bit about myself and the strain that I am going through.
    I am an excellent athlete but I couldn’t take my athletic career to the next level because of my strabismus which I found to be detrimental in exerting pressure on my left feet. This lack of power exertion reduced my speed while running, reduced the length and heights of my jumps and didn’t give me confidence in landing while I was practicing kick-boxing. Oddly enough, although my left punches were strong enough, I have trouble guiding the force in my left arm to a point in space, it affects my skills right through. I fall and slip while climbing mountains and on treks, it affects my quality of life each and every day.

    After I realized the atlas of the body in my mind is not matching my actual body, like my left foot is a little shorter than my right foot, my left thigh is smaller than my right thigh. I went on a research by myself trying to understand my body more and I stumbled upon the problems of a twisted pelvis, and through meditation and some reading I could realize my sacrum was twisted too, then I observed even my left being twisted, the left fingers being twisted. I have slowly but steadily attempted to correct this with some yoga practices but I feel this whole thing is going to take a lot longer and I don’t know if it’s going to be worth it because I already 35 years but I am strongly pursuing this dream of a perfectly balanced body one day. I want to breathe in and out of this body and feel the exuberance of getting relieved from this handicap.

    If at all I can do anything to help this research, I would be glad to participate and help.

    1. Thank you for reaching out with your story, Sathish….I am not sure where you live, but you may want to take the training to feel the full effects of CFT….If so, please give Kim Sherlock a call in America at 610-256-0787……best, Barry
