Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) - A Bridge to Health


What is BCST?

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a subtle light touch approach which assists the body’s natural capacity for self-repair. It is a way to connect with the body’s wisdom and it’s ability to move toward health. The therapy is led by the client, allowing their system to set the pace at which adjustments take place and the order in which change occurs. Listening to the body through Craniosacral touch can bring about a reorganization that is both physiological and psychological. Stress and anxiety are reduced and the client often experiences greater relaxation and enjoyment of life. As this is a gentle therapy, it’s suitable for all ages, including newborns, the elderly, and people with delicate, degenerative, or painful conditions.

A note on trauma

Many conditions such as birth issues, accidents, illnesses and psychological stress have their origins in physical or emotional trauma. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy works particularly well with these traumas, facilitating a safe resolution of held experiences. These changes can have a profound effect on a person’s body and mind, and on how they relate to others.
