Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, light touch and safe therapy that helps the body to return to its original state of health.
There are two key ideas in Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy. Firstly, the body is intelligent and will heal itself if we allow it. And secondly, the whole body undergoes an expansion and contraction motion, which can be felt as rhythms in the body.
As a therapist I will listen to the body’s expressions and will facilitate the conditions that allow it to heal.
What to expect from a Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy session?
Clients will remain clothed and invited to lie down on a table. In some cases, clients may be seated.
With permission, I will contact your body with my hands gently. Initial contact with the feet or head is rather common. As I am in contact with your body, I am listening for rhythms and expressions of your whole system which are all common expressions in all of us. Some areas may feel expansive while other areas of the body may feel more contracted.
Overall, by listening and be present with the body, we are allowing the body to process what it needs and ultimately encouraging the expression of health, especially in areas that may not have been functioning as well.
There is generally some dialogue throughout the session to find out what body sensations the client is noticing. This is also a way for clients to be supported throughout a session.
