The Biodynamic Approach
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST)- a branch of Cranial Osteopathy, is a naturalistic approach to health and healing. Due to its gentle and non-invasive quality, it is fast growing popularity in the field of paramedical health care as a safe and effective model that supports disorders and imbalances of the body, restoring resiliency to our system and improving overall circulation.
Human life and health is dependent upon the craniosacral system within the body. It has recently been medically acknowledged as a natural, continuous body rhythm that promotes and maintains life in the body (along with the respiratory and circulatory systems).
The craniosacral rhythm can be felt all over the body as a slow, subtle wave like motion. This rhythm is caused by the circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid, which bathes and nourishes the brain and nervous system. The fluid is enclosed in membranes, which line the bones of the head (cranium), pass down the vertebral column and attach again at the sacrum — hence the name ‘craniosacral system’. By gently touching areas of the head and body a practitioner can tune into the rhythmic fluctuations working on it diagnostically and therapeutically.
The aliveness of the body can be felt in the rhythmic motion of the cerebrospinal fluid along with all the cells, tissues, bones and other fluids in the body. Craniosacral sessions enhance this natural flow and support the inner balance of the system, thereby restoring health to the nervous system and all other functions of the body.
The Biodynamic Approach of Craniosacral Therapy addresses and supports the Primary Respiratory System – the original matrix of health, carrying life potency to every cell, tissue and organ of our body. This approach rejuvenates our whole being as the body settles into a deeper space of stillness and meditative watchfulness.
