Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle yet profound non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body.The treatment works to settle the nervous system, which supports every function in the body.

The body expresses itself in a series of subtle rhythms, expressed in our fluids, bones, organs, tissues and the very cells. Together it amounts to a tremendous life force, the breath of life.

During times of stress and after trauma our body's vitality is centred in a protective manner around the initial distress, and patterns of tension show themselves as restrictions and compression in the tissues and in the easily stimulated nervous system. As stresses accumulate they hinder our well-being and become locked in the body as unresolved issues. Our histories are held in our contracted tissues and overactive minds.

Our bodies know how to heal. I seek to facilitate reconnection, helping to attune to the patterns that arise in the body, bringing a sense of order to the nervous system and resolving the negative effects of stress, anxiety and trauma. Release and healing happens at the level of body, mind and spirit: we become more present to ourselves, bringing acceptance and compassion to our experience.

What it's like

You lie fully clothed on a massage table, and my touch is generally light and still, as I "listen" through my hands to detect the subtle rhythms and movements. There may be a deep sense of relaxation and possibly an awareness of heat, tingling, pulsation or other sensations. Everyone's experience is unique and represents a personal voyage of discovery.

The therapy is suitable for people of all ages.
