Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
A holistic approach to healing
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a gentle non-invasive hands-on approach to healing that has its roots founded in traditional Cranial Osteopathy but is just beginning to come to the forefront of natural and effective therapies. BCST naturally unwinds the body from injury, settles the nervous system, supports the immune system, and can help restore health to a wide range of disorders and conditions. It is an effective form of treatment for a wide range of illnesses helping to create the optimal conditions for health, encouraging vitality and facilitating a sense of well-being. It is suitable for people of all ages including babies, children and the elderly, and can be effective in acute or chronic cases.
I am trained in evaluating and enhancing the function of body called the “craniosacral system” which is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid which form the fluid-filled sac around the core of the central nervous system (CNS) - surrounding, nourishing, and protecting the brain and spinal cord. The CNS is the seat of consciousness, all of our mental activity, our emotions, all of our sensations, including pain, are based on the CNS making it integral to your overall health.
Like the pulse of the cardiovascular system, the Craniosacral system has a rhythm that can be felt throughout the body. Using a touch generally no heavier than the weight of a small coin, I can monitor this rhythm at key body areas to pinpoint the source of a restriction or stress. Once a source has been determined, I can assist, with gentle and subtle massage, the natural movement of the fluid and related tissue to help the body self-correct. This simple action is sometimes all it takes to remove a restriction. Often times, I may integrate CST with other complementary massage, energy and dialoguing techniques, to help restore the body to its optimum level of functioning.
