Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful hands-on treatment for body and mind. Performed on a massage table, the client is fully clothed and the touch is generally light and still. The work is focused on supporting the health of the whole being, especially the nervous system. This is the system that directs your internal and external experience in the world. It is responsible for both your involuntary functioning (digestion, circulation, etc.) and your capacity to experience and engage in the outside world, including your felt sense of safety, belonging, and well-being.
The practitioner’s touch listens to the fluctuations of the fluids and anatomical structures within the craniosacral system. By lightly stimulating the branch of the nervous system responsible for healing, craniosacral therapy affords the body the time and space it needs to start repairing the damage that has built up over weeks, months or decades.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is especially helpful for the traumatic and intense cultural milieu we find ourselves in in the present day. If you’re finding yourself feeling overwhelmed, shut down, confused, anxious, irritated, on-edge, experiencing digestive or sleep issues, chronic body tension or any other heightened sense of general unease, this work can significantly help your whole body find the equilibrium that has felt elusive. It is an especially beneficial adjunct to other types of healing and personal growth work such as bodywork, coaching, and therapy.
BCST may be helpful in addressing such situations as:
- Impingement of cranial nerves or spinal nerves
- left-right imbalances
- head injuries
- feelings of compression or pressure
- TMJ and dental problems
- trauma of all kinds — birth, falls, accidents and other injuries
- post-traumatic stress disorder.
Because of its gentle nature, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy has few contraindications. Benefits can include a sense of ease, spaciousness and stillness in your whole system as symptoms begin to resolve. Pain may decrease and you may feel deeply relaxed and centered as your body begins to release old tension patterns and re-orient to its inherent sense of health. The more relaxed and centered we feel the more available we are to change both mentally and physically.
The cost is $130 for a 75 minute session with Erin Celeste Grace or $105 for a 60 minute session.
