Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy


Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy is a subtle and profound healing form which assists the bodys natural capacity for self-repair. It is a way to c6nnect with the bodys natural wisdom and ability to move forward. The therapy is led by the client, allowing their system to set the pace at which adjustments take place and the order in which change occurs. Listening to the body through craniosacral touch can bring about a reorganization that is physiological, psychological and energetic. Stress and anxiety are also reduced and the client often experiences greater relaxation and enjoyment of life. As this is a gentle therapy, its suitable for all ages, including newborns, the elderly and people with delicate, degenerative or painful conditions.

What is involved in a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy session?
Treatment is generally camed out sitting or lying fully clothed on a treatment table. The therapist wiil make contact by placing their hands lightly on your body and tuning in to what is happening by listening with their hands. The therapist is able to notice contractions and restrictions held in the tissues and fluids of the body. As the primary orientation is towards the clients inherent health, deep and lasting transformation can occur. Clients often become deeply relaxed during a session.

What are the benefits
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can lead to changes in areas of restriction and discomfort, and an optimizing of overall health. Clients often experience more energy, resilience, calmness and mental clarity. Through a series of treatments, a client can experience greater vitality and well-being, an improvement in symptoms and a movement away from old patterns and dis-ease. This can lead to a renewed sense of direction and purpose and new ways of relating to others.
