Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) (Appointments by request)
I liken Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy to the blossoming of a flower, ever unfolding discovering who you really are far beyond your pain and discomfort. Continuing education is of utmost importance so that I may be aware of and practice the most recent effective ways to serve you.
What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?
BCST is an advanced therapy that combines a Western scientific understanding of the body with mindfulness skills, unique type of touch and an appreciation of the body’s ability to heal itself. The therapy has its roots in the discoveries made by Osteopath Dr. William Garner Sutherland in the late 1800’s - “the Cranial Concept”. These original concepts have been refined and extended to become the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy of today.
You’re In Safe Hands
There is never any pressure, manipulation or force. Your therapist is trained to create a calm, still and embodied presence. This type of touch and presence enables you to feel safe, supported and held. This sense of safety allows your brain to switch from fight or flight to rest and repair. It is in this state that healing and change can begin to take place.
Experiences that are too overwhelming or traumatic to cope with can remain in your system, locking your body in a “fight or flight” state. The long-term effects of this unresolved trauma can include feelings of dissociation, stress and hyper-vigilance and can lead to illness and disease. BCST works particularly well with trauma by gently facilitating your body and brain to resolve held experiences without the need to revisit the original traumatic incident.
Who Can Benefit?
Practitioners generally work with a wide variety of clients. The therapy is gentle which allows it to be used during pregnancy, after childbirth, with newborns, young children, adults and the elderly. Clients seek treatment for an extensive range of symptoms including pain, fatigue, stress-related conditions as well as difficulties with sleep and digestive issues. Other clients are interested in improving general physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
What Makes BCST Unique?
The therapy is client led, the treatment pace is set by you and the requirements of your body. BCST acknowledges the whole person and that emotional, mental, spiritual and physical health are all interconnected. The understanding of the body’s intelligence to heal and facilitate selfrepair is central to the therapy. BCST is a progressive therapy that embraces the latest findings in medical science and the wisdom of traditional healing arts.
