BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY (BCST)
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is an intense, yet subtle, and gentle approach which promotes the human body's natural ability to heal itself. It is a non-invasive treatment meaning any settlement that occurs within sessions happens only when the client’s system is ready to do so. In this safe space of neutral listening, trauma from pre-conditional forces such as illness, accidents, psycho-emotional experiences, and birth effects, can release from the body without disrupting these delicate internal environments. BCST therapy is deeply supportive of balancing the nervous system. Trauma and daily stresses of life can cause imbalances and blockages within our bodies continually run in the fight, flight, or frozen states. This therapy helps to slow things down, create deep relaxation, self-repair, and connection to our body. As this vital system comes back into a balance it will function better in all aspects of life and will begin to feel more peaceful and at ease.
"Healing does not mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our lives." - Unknown

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY SESSION
During a craniosacral therapy session, you as a client lie down on a massage table, fully clothed covered with a blanket. I start the session with a brief conversation to check in and to get a sense of where you are in your healing journey. I will make light contact with you, usually starting at your feet. Your experience can vary from session to session and each time my approach in an open, neutral way allowing new expressions to emerge. Feeling safe and comfortable is very important, as I will check in with you during the session, and it is encouraged that you feel free to give feedback. This builds a baseline of trust and allows sessions to go deeper.
As I am a biodynamic craniosacral student, each session takes about 30 minutes and will be performed at NO CHARGE. The sessions I offer, while very useful to my clients, are considered training for me. Any benefit you may gain from these practice sessions are part of the nature of this work and require no payment. At the end of each session, I would appreciate any feedback you may have to help with my learning journey.
