I've had benefit too, but it was minor, and not long-lasting.

Interestingly, before I was diagnosed with MS (and long before I heard about CCSVI), a friend of mine who does cranio-sacral work worked on me a bit, and said that she could feel that my cerebrospinal fluid was not flowing properly at the base of my skull/top of my neck ...

Yes, I have found it helpful.
For example, fter each session my eyesight would be clearer and colors better, but as Johnson says, not long lasting.
What I found MOST helpful was switching to a good chiropractor, one who knows fully how to do the various neck manipulations--from this I have had extraordinary help, help that has lasted.

I have done the cranial-scaral stuff which did help short term.
Recently I have tried BioCranial which is differnet.
Seems to be more lasting and better for me, more improvement.
You can find people who do it on the net, special training
Not sure if it would be good to do after stents though.
They bend you head/neck during the treament.

Yes, I too have been helped by CST, especially with neck & back pain. I have ALWAYS carried tension in my neck. The relief lasted for a month or so. My therapist also helped with bladder issues.
