Biodynamic craniosacral therapy supports the health of the whole person. In particular the nervous system is supported to come into balance. The benefits of this for the client can be profound on physical and emotional levels. The client is fully clothed and the therapist’s touch is light and still – we palpate subtle movements in the body’s fluid and tissue fields. We recognise the body’s inherent wisdom and do not manipulate or force change.
Throughout the whole body there is a biodynamic health which expresses in rhythms which are very rich in information. In biodynamic craniosacral therapy we palpate these rhythms with our hands, and receive information about the body’s alignment, nervous activity, chemistry and wellbeing of the organs etc. We aim to be present and patient in allowing the client’s system to communicate its health and history freely. In this context the body can release restrictions which have often been held for some time, and natural reorganisation takes place.
The biodynamic craniosacral therapist intends to palpate the underlying biodynamic health, know the anatomy and physiology that is being communicated, and be aware of the whole person in a warm and spacious way. The therapist carefully follows the body’s response as to how to proceed, so that the treatment is paced in a safe and appropriate way for each client.
Please bear in mind that following a treatment session you may want to plan your activities to allow yourself some quieter, restful time.
