Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy

Byodynamic  Craniosacral Therapy  (BCST) is a gentle and holistic approach to body work. 

BCST is an advanced therapy that combines western understanding of the body with mindfulness and an appreciation that the body knows how to heal itself given the right touch and space. Health is always present and Craniosacral therapy can help you to reconnect with your health. As your Body awareness amplifies you will notice what is being held or restricted in your body or areas of health and vitality. With this awareness change is possible.

The human body holds an innate intelligence that has the potential to heal your body and is always with you. A BCST therapist will gently hold on various places in your body such as you feet, sacrum or cranium and feel and listen through the hands to the body's nervous system, soft tissues, bones, fluids etc to gently allow resolution of stress and pain to resolve. 

BCST will help to resource your body as it follows the natural priorities of healing as directed by your body and physiology. 

BCST is effective in Resolving past held trauma. Experiences that have been too overwhelming to cope with can remain in your system ,if unresolved at the time. This can lead to anxiety , depression or areas of dissociation within your body .BCST can help you to reconnect with your body in a gentle and affective way without the need of revisiting the trauma verbally.
 
Bcst is very affective in working with chronic pain, by calming your nervous system and helps you to feel more connected and safe in your body which can turn  down pain signals. 

Although gentle in touch it can have profound benefits for your entire body and treat a multitude of conditions. BCST is so gentle in gentle nature that it is great for babies, children and adults.

Health is never lost and with skilful touch your body can be guided back to health.

I undertook a 2 year Craniosacral Therapy training ( recognised worldwide.) I am an assistant tutor for bodyintelligence training 2 year Diploma. I have taught in Malaysia and I am currently a lead teacher on a 2 year Diploma of biodynamic Craniosacral therapy course in Melbourne.

Simplicity..... the biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy 
 
The evolution of the biodynamic approach to Craniosacral therapy is primarily in embodied listening. The beauty of this therapy is in its simplicity and the practitioner being neutral in their listening.
 
The best outcome for the client is to be with the power of their own health .The human body is highly intelligent and health is always availiable.
 
For the practitioner it means being in relationship  with the whole body , providing a calm and embodied  presence , holding a spacious light touch and inviting stillness and health. The practitioner is also in relationship with biology and movement of the tissues.
 
I believe the body has enormous potential to heal itself when feeling safe, heard and given light spacious and  non judgemental touch .
 
Many of us are in a state of hyperarousal or stress in everyday life. Being in chronic pain or regularly feeling anxious can stop you from feeling embodied and calm. Being in touch with your own internal body sensations will create feelings of safety and health can help you to heal.
These senasations are happening within us at all times and to have more awareness  of them will help us to regulate ourselves and to feel more embodied , healthy and whole.
 
The human body runs best when it is fully present and embodied. It is then that we are able to reconnect to our own unique body and the underlying health within it.
 
Biodynamic craniosacral therapy can help you to do this in a safe, calm and resourced way. 

Rolfing

Rolfing is a soft tissue bodywork which aims to balance your posture and help you feel freer in your body. The primary goal of Rolfing is to realease lifelong structural patterns.It is highly effective in correcting your posture which will decrease pain and increase energy and restore health to your fascia

A Rolfer will  work on the connective tissue to free up areas that have become shortened or restricted due to past injuries, ageing, poor posture, gravity and much more. Our fascia ( connective tissue which surrounds every muscle, joint and organ) can become restricted and shortened over time, which effects fluid balance and our overall ability to move freely. The fascia therefore may not be able to glide as freely and smoothly as it should. Rolfing can help to free up the fascia and bring back health.

During the course of our lives our bodies can experience stresses and strains ,injuries and trauma. If these stresses are not resolved at the time it can become locked in the body and Rolfing will help to unblock and to free your body.

My style of Rolfing is very gentle and is not painful. The most affective way to create long term health is for you to feel comfortable, safe and embodied. 

I have found the combination of Craniosacral therapy and Rolfing to be very beneficial to address many issues. The one hour Rolfing is very gentle and will help your tissues to relax and for you to feel calm and more embodied. Then the Craniosacral therapy 30 minutes will help to calm your nervous system, help you feel more embodied and safe and connected in your body .

"When the body gets working appropriately the force of gravity can flow through then spontaneously the body heals itself "

Dr Ida Rolf founder of Rolfing

I trained at The Rolf  institute in America and have over 22 years experience as a Rolfer.

Rolfing is highly beneficial for:

  • Embodiment and relaxation 
  • Increasing flexibility feeling light and spacious
  • Back pain, headaches, joint issues, fibromyalgia etc
  • Resolve past Injuries and restrictions
  • Posture alignment
  • The effects of ageing and gravity on the body
  • Emotional release
