Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy (BCST)
Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy or simply ‘cranial work,’ as this form of body therapy is sometimes referred to, focuses on the health of your system (Body). Originated in Osteopathy, BCST is a very embodied therapy which treats the body as a whole.
It’s a very subtle yet profound healing modality, that uses very light contact on different areas of your body that allows me to listen to very specific body pulses, also referred to as cranial rhymes, that are present in all living systems.
I will engage and talk to your body in a way using body awareness / felt sense sensation, so that we can understand what areas of your body you may or may not be aware off. These sensations simulate information via your Central Nervous System to assist you to feel safe and allow your body to rebalance itself and let go of holdings in your body. These holdings may include pain or emotional blockages. The Central Nervous System is a pathway of information which helps to regulate the body and brain and is vital in bringing hormones and neurological systems back into balance.
Babies and young children are very responsive to Cranial work, as their bodies totally rely on sensation and touch and the feeling of being safe. Most young children are over stimulated nowadays and calming their nervous systems allows them to be more embodied, regulated and calm.
