Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out, ’till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”

What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?

I first experienced BCST 8 years ago after suffering a low back injury.  My condition was too acute for an adjustment so my chiropractor shared craniosacral therapy with me.

If you’ve ever had back pain you understand the panic feeling of the pain and how your whole body grips around it.  This treatment allowed me to relax enough so I could deal with my situation and create greater mobility as well. The experience was a profound turning point in my career, expanding my knowledge once again of the body’s relentless quest to establish balance and heal.  I was hooked from that point on and wanted to learn more.

Is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy for you?

If you’ve recently experienced a physical or emotional disturbance in your life such as illness, loss, injury or exhaustion, craniosacral may be for you.  Or, if you want to prepare yourself for an upcoming event that’s potentially stressful, craniosacral therapy can help prepare and stabilize your nervous system so you don’t get so easily derailed.

How we can work together?

As a registered practitioner of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, I want to share with you this effective way to rebalance. By subtly contacting the fluid system as well as the cranial bones, spine and connective tissue, harmony can be brought to the nervous system and thereby support the body’s innate ability to heal and self-correct. My intention for this work is for you to be able to distinguish what your body feels like in a balanced state which may be different from what you’re currently feeling.  I also incorporate breathing and relaxation techniques that best support your lifestyle.

Healing Effects and Benefits

Your body has a story to tell. It speaks through its own rhythms and patterns of stress and resistance. Often when we are in pain we isolate a part of our body – my bad knee or my aching back. This isolation is an expression of our body’s current story or state of health.

BCST helps to return that separate part to the whole of you. When blood, lymph, cerebrospinal fluid and cellular movement are reoriented around stillness, individuals can experience their wholeness and many other health benefits.

For example:

  • Relief from the physical and emotional patterns of stress
  • Settling of the nervous system where chronic stress is stored
  • Release of trauma without triggering emotional release
  • Support for the body’s ability to regenerate
  • Calming of heart and mind
  • Creation of profound body awareness

Commonly Treated Conditions

BCST helps to alleviate a range of conditions including:

  • Migraines and headaches
  • Vertigo
  • Ear Aches
  • Sinus congestion
  • Concussions
  • Injuries from car accidents and falls

A Typical Session

You may feel wave like sensations from time to time or you may experience deeper breathing without consciously putting forth effort. You may even drift off to sleep. This is all normal as your body tells its story and relaxes.  It is here in this quiet place that your body can transform, reorient and find balance.

After your treatment, you may experience a sense of calm and the ability to focus more clearly.  Allow yourself a bit of unscheduled time after so you can savor the depth of the treatment and enjoy!
