Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is gentle yet effective modality which influences the spinal column, brain and central nervous system, along with the fluid that bathes it.

Working with the Craniosacral Fluid

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a non-invasive, hands-on therapy which works with the bodies natural rhythm; listening to its subtle vibrations and facilitating its natural ability to re-regulate and self repair.

This gentle yet effective modality influences the spinal column, brain and central nervous system, along with the fluid that bathes it, the cerebral spinal fluid. The therapy works to affect the primary and very deep patterns whilst providing the recipient with the space required to dive deeper into their mental and emotional landscape. 

The result is a deep state of relaxation which allows the recipient to connect with their body and emotions.

Where true healing begins

Combining Modern and Ancient Techniques

Founded by an American Osteopathic Physician, William Sutherland in the 1930s, Craniosacral Therapy (CST) combines an anatomical understanding of the body and the flow of cerebral spinal fluid with the ancient and sacred healing art of laying hands upon a patient. 

Just as we all have a heart rate and beating rhythm, there’s an even subtler rhythm of the cerebral spinal fluid that Dr Sutherland referred to as the ‘Breath of Life.’ This fluid bathes, protects and nourishes the brain and spinal cord held within the meningeal layers surrounding the central nervous system. 
 
Based on the universal understanding of the healing powers of physical touch, this therapy therefore crosses time and cultural barriers; working with the natural rhythmic flow of each individual in order to optimise deep relaxation and self healing.

‘In this work, the therapist sits quietly, similar to the quality of presence in meditation and applies simple contacts with gentle touch while allowing this subtle rhythm and its enfoldments to express their optimising healing power. It is altogether the most sacred and the most ordinary and natural thing one human being can do with another – to sit together in the power of Love’s presence and allow its healing power to come forth and make the corrections.’
