Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a gentle, subtle whole body approach to support and restore health
and well-being within the entire human organism. This somatic based therapy is hands-on, non-manipulative and non-invasive.
By listening with the fingers to the body's own rhythm, the body reveals where and how the body-mind is out of
- Illness, Pain and Dysfunction
- Pregnancy & Birth
Physically - Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy influences the central nervous system; brain and spinal column,
as well as the fluid that bathes it. This fluid is called the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). From our skeletal system
and the bones of the cranium to the ebbing and flowing of our endocrine system, this cranial modality is effective,
restorative and soothing.
Emotionally - Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can affect very deep and primary patterns, while providing the
patient with resource and space to explore their emotional landscape. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy provides
a deep sense of resourcing within the client. This resourcing provides a safe container for emotional issues due
to traumas, Post Trauma Stress Disorder (PTSD) and emotional blocks.
Spiritually - Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can open doors to both our hearts and soul, profoundly changing
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can help alleviate a wide variety of illness, pain and dysfunction. It is recommended
for people with acute and chronic conditions ranging from anxiety, autism, ADHD, and allergies, to the common cold,
headaches, Tinnitus, TMJ, lower back pain, insomnia and physical trauma.
BCST is especially beneficial for infants who suffer from conditions such as infant colic, chronic middle ear infections,
feeding difficulties, and children who suffer headaches, behavior problems, and learning disabilities. BCST is
a soothing therapy providing support for mother and baby, and resolution of birth experiences.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can help improve the quality of life for elderly people, and for people in fragile
or acutely painful conditions.
What can I expect during my Craniosacral Session?
Lying down fully clothed in a comfortable position, I will gently hold your head, spin or feet. You may go into
a peaceful, meditative state during the session that feels deeply restful and nurturing. As the nervous system
lets go of unnecessary stress and strain, you should find yourself taking deep breaths and the feeling the tension
Each treatment session lasts approximately 1 hour.
After the session, you may feel increased mobility in your body, relief from pain, and increased mental clarity.
You may also find that you sleep very soundly after receiving Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.
"As a therapist, I feel
a profound sense of gratitude and honor as I facilitate the body's ability to become still, to strengthen the capacity
of the body's inner intelligence and to soothe and balance the nervous system. When the nervous system is settled,
the body then has the ability to build it's own reserves, fortify internal potency and to rebalance and restore
the whole body-mind system."

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is very gentle, subtle and non-invasive hands-on modality of bodywork, encouraging
the body's own self-healing and self-regulating capacities. This therapy is an excellent compliment to Chinese
Medicine and helps the mother-to-be by strengthening her constitution and by addressing any stresses or traumas
before their effects take root in the baby. Back pain and pelvic tightness can be relieved, allowing a relaxed
pelvis and ease with childbirth.
An easy gestation and a natural birth are the best start that a baby can have in the world. Unfortunately, not
every birth is ideal for a wide variety of reasons, and even before birth a baby may have had difficult experiences
in the womb or have been quite compressed in the last days before birth. Often the work of a Craniosacral Therapist
is involved in helping the baby's body to recover and release the compressive forces that they have been unable
to completely resolve naturally. When Mom's system is soothed and balanced during pregnancy, baby gains huge benefits
- pre and post birth!
