Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy [BCST] is a gentle, light touch treatment that focuses on activating the body's inherent healing resources to restore balance and harmony from within.  Central to the treatment is balancing of the central and autonomic nervous systems. This allows for deep relaxation in a state of stillness and spaciousness – necessary for healing and prevention of disease processes. Healing depends on a healthy, balanced nervous system. Deeper and deeper states of stillness are accessed as the nervous system settles. Healing transpires in this deep stillness.

The central mechanism is the wave-like flow of cerebrospinal fluid between the brain and the sacrum via the spinal canal. Treatments enhance the flow of these fluids releasing restrictions in fluids and tissue. As tension and stress patterns resolve, the whole system moves freely, or with the least amount of restriction possible.
Presence is an essential element of the treatment. The practitioner creates a safe healing environment through her own presence in a state of deep awareness. The field of awareness is very wide, and also very specific to the individual. Skills of deep listening, cultivated over many years, allow for clear perception and a dialogue with the client’s system.
With its emphasis on somatic awareness, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a deep meditation on the body. Research has demonstrated that cultivating awareness through mindful meditation activates and expands the capacity of the prefrontal cortex of the brain by increasing neuronal connections. The further development of this "new" brain is essential in human evolution.


In Biodynamic work we cultivate a non-judgmental attitude of deep appreciation for the body and its innate intelligence which guidesthe healing process. The practitioner remains neutral and without any agenda ~ simply witnessing and reflecting back patterns within the matrix of Health. This allows the healing to be guided by the client's inner physician.
