Siddha Healing for Cervical Dystonia
Involuntary muscle contractions are a result of nerve abnormalities. Chakrasiddh employs yoga and massage therapy to stimulate the nerves in that particular region. Marma therapy is carried out to facilitate better energy flow and dispel accumulated toxins from the affected region. This helps in alleviating the pain and discomfort experienced by the patient. Incorporation of changes in diet and lifestyle helps the patient lead a normal life after recovering from cervical dystonia.
