The smartest thing in the room is the intelligence expressed in our bodies… This is the underlying principle on which Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is based.
BCST takes a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connections of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged. In the biodynamic paradigm, therapists are taught to be highly skilful at listening to the body’s inherent health mechanisms. The therapist typically looks for and encourages the forces of health to set the priorities of the session and to bring about natural adjustments from within the body’s own resources. It is hallmarked by a strong interest in the holism of the human experience where both the body’s anatomy and physiology are related to in real time with the subtle forces of life that act through the interface of the body’s fluids. Subtle movements in the body’s fluid and tissue fields are being listened for and the natural movement towards stillness is seen as deeply resourceful.
The simplicity of this therapy is its beauty.
The practitioner takes up a position of being neutral and allows the process of the treatment to unfold. The practitioner is interested in facilitating the body towards deep intrinsic reorganizations across the body’s tissues, its fluid matrix and its energetic and emotional layers, so that there is a holistic movement towards greater health. The therapy creates a safe space for traumatic experiences to emerge and resolve smoothly without being overwhelming or re-stimulating.
The list of conditions which may benefit from this therapy is long and comprehensive, as most imbalances, whether physical, emotional or spiritual in origin, respond to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. The following is a selection from the many conditions which respond favourably:
