What is biodynamic craniosacral therapy?

Biodynamic craniosacral therapy is a gentle technique that works on the interaction between the energy, fluids and physical structures of the body using the body’s inherent healing resources via the Breath of Life. Whilst it is called “craniosacral” therapy, the work is not restricted to the head or the spine – it’s an overall holistic therapy for the entire body.

Essentially every person’s body is unique as every person’s experience of life is different. Energy dynamics are in each and every thing we experience in life like traumas, injuries, illnesses and emotional events, etc. These energetic dynamics have to be dealt with – if we don’t deal with them, they get stored within our body both energetically and physically.

Biodynamic craniosacral therapy is about reminding the body of the resources that it has always had and gives the body a little prod to dissipate the traumas, injuries, illnesses and experiences if it’s no longer in the person’s best interests to keep it there. Basically, it’s a tool to remind our body how intelligent it is all along.

What can biodynamic craniosacral therapy help me with?

Biodynamic craniosacral therapy is useful for almost everything. I’ve found that it has been particularly useful for the following

  • head trauma/concussion;
  • headaches/migraines;
  • behavioural issues;
  • posture alignment;
  • back and neck pain;
  • joint pain;
  • jaw issues;
  • chronic pain and fatigue/fibromyalgia; and
  • dealing with stresses and traumas.

What can I expect from a session?

The majority of the time, my clients leave a session feeling calm, more energised and with improved mental clarity.

It is important to highlight that the nature of this work can be extremely subtle and take time to eventuate. It is common for the effects of this work to be fully realised only a few weeks or months after the treatment. So essentially, it’s important to understand that you may not experience instantaneous results, although in my experience this has happened too!

Want to try it out?

There’s a couple of ways:

  • Book in a massage session with me – I will generally incorporate some craniosacral therapy in the massage session just to give you a taster and if I feel like you would really benefit from some of the techniques that I have;
  • Book a standalone craniosacral therapy session with me; or
  • Check out the offer that I have where you can go in the draw to win a free 60 min session!

Quick note

I am halfway through studying the Diploma of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy at the Wellness Institute with Roger Gilchrist and I am due to graduate in January 2020. As I progress through the training, my techniques will become more refined and focused and you get to receive the benefit of that!
