Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST)

BCST is a gentle non invasive therapy that is suitable for everyone including pregnant women, babies and the elderly. It can help facilitate and relieve a range of conditions from birth traumas, old and new injuries through to mental and emotional stress. BCST is an individualized whole body approach, which allows and supports the body to restore its own health through a gentle contact from the practitioner. BCST helps to support the body's natural healing process by finding its way back to its natural state of balance.

When the body experiences any kind of stress or strain, be it physical, emotional, chemical etc, body patterns can be disrupted, causing a change in the way the tissues of the body express movement and function. This can have a detrimental impact on our general health and wellbeing. Because the body is a complete integrated system, physical trauma can lead to emotional dysfunction, just as emotional confusion can lead to physical ailments. This can manifest itself in many different ways such as pain, insomnia, anxiety and much more. The effects of the different dysfunctions can appear immediately or may take years to develop. You may be unaware or have forgotten about an old incident. However, a forgotten old incident can be held in the body tissues, affecting the body's natural process and may require extra assistance to return it to its natural state (efficient body function.)

What happens during a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy session?

In your first session, an initial case history will be taken. While the client remains fully clothed and lies on a massage table the practitioner make light contact with the client's feet. The therapist may use different hand holds throughout the session. During a session a little conversation might take place to give the client some feedback about what is sensed in the body. More will be discussed after the session.

It is advised that all clients aged 18 and under will remain accompanied by their parent or guardian throughout the session.
