Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

This subtle, yet profound work is a way of deeply listening to life experiences that have shaped us. By directly listening to the patterns of experience that have left their imprints upon our tissues, the biodynamic craniosacral therapist is able to work with the bodies natural intelligence and inherent health to support resolution of acute and chronic conditions. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is useful for mild traumatic brain injuries (Concussion), addressing physical pain, developing emotional clarity, neutralizing shock and trauma experiences, recovering quickly from surgery, resolving the effects of life stress,  and accelerating personal growth.

  • What is the craniosacral system?
    The craniosacral system is comprised of the cranium or skull, the sacrum (tailbone),  column and the surrounding interrelated tissues and fluids. The CS system is also directly related to the network of muscle, fascia, tendons, and ligaments which surround and support all of the structures of our body.
  • What is craniosacral motion and how is it related to health?
    Over 100 years ago an American Osteopath named Dr. William Sutherland discovered subtle movements of the cranial bones and their relationship to tide-like pulsations within the tissues and fluids throughout the body. His further research revealed that these intrinsic movements are a direct expression of the health of the system, and are inextricably linked with a person’s physical, mental and emotional well-being.
  • What causes restrictions of movement in the CS system?
    Restrictions of movement in the CS system can be caused by past illness or physical/emotional trauma (such as accidents, slips and falls, surgeries, sports injuries, and abuse-physically, sexually or verbally) that did not release from the cellular memory of the body. They can also form due to habitual holding patterns due to stress, disease, and repetitive strain.
  • How is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy different from other therapies?
    Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy accesses the body at a much deeper level than other therapies. Where other therapies treat only symptoms, BCST rapidly relieves symptoms while naturally accessing the source of the problem, whether physical or emotional pain.
  • How can I expect to feel during and after a BCST session?
    The work is very soothing and relaxing in nature. During the session you may develop a sense of self-awareness of your emotions or the subtle movements in your body. As your body is rebalancing and trying to establish a new equilibrium you may experience shifts in your system. It is not uncommon to temporarily feel worse before feeling better. Physical releases are often experienced as muscle twitching or as a reduction in pain and increase in mobility. It is also possible that you may experience a release of emotion such as sadness or joy. These shifts can occur during a session, and often can continue during the following 24-48 hours.
  • How soon will I experience relief?
    Most clients experience some improvement during the first treatment. Depending on severity, the symptoms and underlying problems are often relieved in four to twelve sessions. Treatments typically last 60-90 minutes.
  • Can BCST help me?
    BCST can be helpful to people with almost any condition; from those who are experiencing acute painful conditions due to a recent injury, to those experiencing chronic problems. Common complaints that can be addressed through BCST include TMJ dysfunction ( or jaw joint tension, pain, clicking and grinding), headaches and migraines, back, neck and/or facial pain, sinus congestion/pressure and various hormonal disturbances. Increased well-being and deepened calm are some of the benefits that can be experienced from receiving BCST.

    I truly wish this therapy would have been available after my injury whilst on military duty In OEF/OIF. The military gave no other options to spinal fusion.with plates and rods.. I hope that the options you give will be adopted by DOD one day. Blessings to you and the work you do.

I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions!
