Dear Jennifer,
I was so saddened and touched, as were thousands of others, when I heard about Chris being injured while having his piano lesson at Harmony Road, only one block from my home. I was also touched by your attitude of openness and hope for Chris's eventual recovery. No one can say to what extent Chris may recover function. I urge you to see if there are any OTs or PTs at the hospital where Chris is starting rehab who are also experienced CranioSacral therapists. CranioSacral therapy has been known to produce results not considered likely or even possible in some cases. This type of therapy supports the body's own self-correcting and self-healing mechanisms. You can get a better idea about CST by reading the book, "Your Inner Physician and You" by Dr John Upledger. You can contact me if you need more information about this. I send you my best hopes, wishes, and prayers. Sincerely, Madolin Wells
