I want to help my clients to know that they are at home in our bodies. There is no end to our unfolding wellbeing when we turn toward ourselves in a kind and curious way and connect to our felt reality. This is the nature of my work as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a deeply attuned, hands-on therapy that I can best describe as a healing relationship grounded in the body. I am primarily focused on the expression of health, the actual subtle rhythms of the living structure. From this felt-sense orientation, relating with the natural rhythmic flow in my client's body which is the well of wellbeing, the priorities and particular needs for healing will start to open up and the whole body/mind is able to re-establish it's own connections. It is truly a discovery process - discovering the innate life support in our bodies which provides us a foundational sense of wellbeing so that all of our decisions and actions and efforts can become more attuned and capable. This is certainly a body therapy, and far more.
What distinguishes Biodynamic Craniosacral from other therapies? We are focusing on the health that's already there, which naturally invites the discordant aspects of the whole system to rejoin it's own flow, whereas most other forms of body therapy focus on the wound or ailment. Biodynamic Craniosacral is directed by the client's system, the very particular experiences held in the client's body, which includes emotional and mental experience. There is a truthfulness in this approach that the wisdom of the body/mind recognizes, opening the door for surprising, relieving discoveries to happen. Because it is also in a therapeutic relationship, I am there to help with integration of the changes into the structure and life. Big changes can be initially relieving but can leave us disorganized and adrift if they are not metabolized and integrated. That process is not predictable so it is important to have a good established relationship, which I love to create with my clients.
