Be Heathy by Choice, Not by Chance

Cranial-Sacral

"The body has an amazing resource for self-balancing and self-healing. There is a power within that knows how to regulate and heal our body-mind being."

Mary Louise Muller

In order for the brain to help the body function optimally, it needs the maximum space possible to do its work. Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) creates more space for the brain to function, allowing physical and emotional challenges to be dealt with and resolved more easily. CST is very effective for addressing a wide range of conditions and challenges. It is a brilliant system of self-correction and self-regulation.

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is also known as Craniosacral Therapy. It focuses on the body’s cranial-sacral system, which is made up of the cerebrospinal fluid and fascial membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord and their connection with every structure in the body. Through gentle, non-invasive touch a practitioner releases cranial-sacral and fascial restrictions to improve the overall functioning of the central nervous system.

The emphasis in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is to help resolve the trapped forces that underlie and govern patterns of disease and fragmentation in both body and mind. This involves the practitioner ‘listening through the hands’ to the body's subtle rhythms and any patterns of inertia or congestion. Through the development of subtle palpatory skills the practitioner can read the story of the body, identify places where issues are held and then follow the natural priorities for healing as directed by the patient¹s own physiology.

The intention of treatment is to facilitate the expression of the Breath of Life and so enhance the body's own self-healing and self-regulating capabilities. This is done in a non-invasive way as the practitioner subtly and gently encourages the conditions that allow for the reemergence of primary respiratory motion. Furthermore, the practitioner's deep and clear quality of presence can become a reflective mirror for the client and an invaluable cue for their potential for change.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connections of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged. It is an effective form of treatment for a wide range of illnesses helping to create the optimal conditions for health, encouraging vitality and facilitating a sense of wellbeing. It is suitable for people of all ages including babies, children and the elderly, and can be effective in acute or chronic cases.

Introduction to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

"Life expresses itself as motion. At a deep level of our physiological functioning, all healthy, living tissues subtly ‘breathe’ with the motion of life - a phenomenon that produces rhythmic impulses, which can be palpated by sensitive hands.

 

"The part can never be well unless the whole is well."
