Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on treatment. It works on the principle that “health is never lost”. We can reconnect with our inner health to stimulate the body’s self-healing ability, and to bring us back into balance. Pioneered by Dr. William Sutherland over 100 years ago, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy works with the body’s subtle rhythms to facilitate our vitality and health.
During the course of our lives we are exposed to challenges which leave their marks on us. The body’s tissues contract in response to physical or emotional stress, and, if the situation is severe and we cannot deal with it sufficiently well, these contractions stay with us, locked deep in our body. We are left patterned and conditioned, our ability to function is restricted and problems may emerge.
By “listening with the hands” to the body’s subtle rhythms, Craniosacral therapists sense and identify where our bodies continue to hold the reactions to past stresses and traumas. Craniosacral therapists engender and amplify the conditions that encourage their dissipation, thus helping the body to restore its optimal functioning.
Craniosacral Therapy is best known for the success achieved with treating babies and infants with regards to birth issues, as well as helping mothers in pregnancy, and for alleviating stress related conditions and emotional issues such as anxiety or depression. Biodynamic Cranioscaral Therapy has a wide application, and people with various physical conditions have benefitted, including:
Migraines, headaches, teeth grinding
Musculoskeletal issues – e.g. back and neck pain or sciatica
Digestive disorders – e.g. constipation or IBS
Hormonal imbalances – e.g. menopause or fertility
