Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle touch therapy. Taking in the wholeness of a person and working with the deeper underlying forces creating symptoms
CST has its roots in osteopathy. Initially through the work of William Garner Sutherland. He named rhythmic motion within the body and how attuning to it could enhance a greater sense of wellness than manipulation of the tissues alone. He called this rhythmic motion Primary Respiration.
BCST was further enhanced through the work of Franklyn Sills. The Biodynamic approach attunes to deeper rhythms and embryological forces using a gentle non doing touch. A skilled practitioner will work in a state of mindfulness and presence creating a place of safety and wellness for your body to settle and be heard.
WORKING WITH TRAUMA
Trauma, physical and emotional, can impact both body and mind. Our nervous systems can go into overdrive, overwhelm and shutdown. This can leave us feeling as if we are not really inhabiting our bodies. Through the safety created in a biodynamic CST session, a practitioner can help to down regulate your nervous system and come back into relationship with body awareness, including training our clients on how to manage pain and anxiety.
