What is biodynamic craniosacral therapy?

Biodynamic craniosacral therapy is an gentle, non-invasive therapy that helps your body achieve balance and optimum health by working with your nervous system and your body’s inherent ability to heal itself.

I view the body as a very intelligent piece of hardware! Your body is structured around how you have experienced life. For example, your posture is the exact by-product of how you use it day to day. The posture of a person who sits at a desk and works all day is very different to the posture of a person who stands and moves for the majority of their day. So this same concept applies to you at a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.

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.

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. I can work directly with your organs, muscles, ligaments, membranes, fluids and all aspects of your body from your feet all the way up to your head.

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;
  • anxiety and depression;
  • elevating energy levelgs; 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
  • If you see me in Wollongong, ask for it to be part of your individualised healing session!

Quick note

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