Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
By: Erin Adams, RMT
“The Biodynamic approach has evolved into a remarkable body therapy that has created a highly skilled way of listening to the body’s inherent health expressions. 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 characterized by a strong orientation to 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 healing.” (Taken directly from the Body Intelligence website)
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on treatment for the whole body. The practitioner touch is light and still. Performed on a massage table, the client is fully clothed. The session focus is to support the inherent health of the whole being, especially the nervous system. The nervous system dictates all of the body’s functioning, constantly sending and receiving information.
Biodynamic Craniosacral practitioners understand how an optimally functioning healthy nervous system performs. Over the next couple of years I hope to develop acute perception skills to perceive subtle physiological changes. I am learning to become aware of the energetic map that underlies one’s basic health and symptomology. Health is never lost no matter what the ailment, I am learning to and I will be able to identify the parts of the nervous system that are not functioning optimally and being able to seek the awareness of the “always available health” in the body to assist the system in bringing itself back into balance. This supports greater ease and helps the body decrease symptoms. (Reference from Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of America)
I have noticed that all nervous systems seem to be at capacity as of late and this is why I feel called to move toward this modality.
If you feel called to come in and experience what a session can do for you, I am available and at the clinic Monday through Thursday. Children have special considerations so for now I will only be offering Cranio sessions to ages 16 and up.
