With roots in osteopathy, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) addresses whole-body dynamics by identifying strain patterns in the soft tissues, structure, and organs of the body and allowing them to release. This hands-on therapy is gentle, but produces profound results in alleviating pain and realigning the body to express maximal health. BCST is particularly effective in addressing nervous system dysfunction, joint mobility and pain, tension headaches, and low back pain.
During the session, you will be fully clothed, sitting in a chair to start and then lying on a massage table in a supported and comfortable way. It is important that you feel comfortable and safe at all times so you will want to ask for any adjustments you need to the lighting, temperature, etc. You may be asked from time to time what you are experiencing; this helps you to stay present with whatever your experience is.
During the session, you may:
— Relax so deeply that you fall asleep
— Enter a quiet meditation-like state
— Feel as if you are dreaming while awake
— Experience memories or insights while on the table
— Enjoy a pleasant sense of warmth, softening, widening or floating
The session quite often involves a process of letting go of patterns that inhibit your health and vitality. Once these patterns begin to shift, the therapist may notice changes in your fluids, tissues, bones and potency. You may experience a sense of integration in your body, mind and spirit.
