What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) ?
BCST is a unique and gentle, touch based therapy that acknowledges the health in the body by regulation of the central nervous system. BCST therapists are trained to feel these rhythms in the body, and with sensitive knowing hands they can identify places where the expression of health needs optimizing.
What are the benefits of BCST?
BCST is deeply relaxing. It assists the body’s natural healing processes, increasing physical vitality and well-being. It aids in pain relief and encourages the nervous system, organs and musculoskeletal system to balance and heal.
It is gentle and safe, making it effective for people of all ages. It supports the relief of symptoms associated with a wide variety of health conditions.
Because BCST promotes expression of health in all the body’s systems, it fosters well- being in all aspects of your life.
What can you expect during a session?
Sessions involve the practitioner placing their hands on the patient, which allows them to “tune into the craniosacral rhythm”. The practitioner then uses delicate manual techniques to release restrictions and relieve undue pressure on the brain and spinal cord. When the central nervous system is free of restrictions, the body is more able to return to its highest levels of health.
Every session with a client is as unique as the client themselves. The systems innate intelligence guides the process of the practitioner, and allows the release of deeply held patterns that cause disease and disfunction.
During a session there may be a lot of silence if the client is deeply relaxed, or there may be a lot of feedback between client and practitioner as to what is being felt.
What can you expect after a session?
How the you may feel after therapy may include deep relaxation, decrease pain and more freedom of physical movement. You may feel more embodied, and calmer or you may realize that something has changed physically and/or how one feels about themselves in relation to the outside world.
Individual response to the work varies and the greatest benefits are achieved after several sessions.
