What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?
Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy is gentle, effective hands-on therapy for adults, children and infants. It has its roots in Osteopathy and developed from the life work of Dr. William Sutherland. It engages rhythms within the body’s fluid field that convey the ordering principles of health expressed in the body and mind.
What are the benefits of Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy?
Clients love the feeling of increased ease and well-being, relaxed and spacious awareness, improved function, and reduced pain. True ease and relaxation is far more than a pleasant indulgence; it is a powerful physiological state that is the foundation for the body’s self-healing capacity. I believe this is why CranioSacral Therapy, so gentle, is so beneficial and well-liked.
Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy has emerged at a time when it is needed. The compressive nature of life today, and a tendency to live in our heads, can lead to a subtle grief for a loss we may not be able to name. For many, it is loss of the whole self. Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy supports health physically and also helps heal the inner self. I know of no better therapy to bring deep inner opening, expansion, and awareness. This integrative therapy awakens the transformative power of wholeness.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy supports optimum health. Clients recover more quickly and completely from the effects of stress, trauma, illness or injury. It is gentle enough for infants and children. It helps both healthy infants and infants with birth issues or developmental problems. It is safe and effective for people weakened by serious illnesses. For people confined because of illness, I offer CST in homes or hospitals.
Training is through schools approved by the Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America, CSTA/NA. Registered Craniosacral Therapists complete a 700 hour diploma program. Studies include palpation, anatomy, physiology, embryology, prenatal and perinatal physiology, somatic psychology, shock and trauma, and trauma recovery. The training also emphasizes vital inner elements -- presence, contact, stilling the mind, and opening the heart. Together, all of these skills support and activate dynamic inner sources of self-healing -- body, mind and spirit.
