Benefits of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST)

Nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul alike
- John Muir

BCST is a gentle therapy due to its non-invasive, non-manipulative nature. It is a therapy that focuses on the health in your system and facilitating the body to self repair. A foundation of BCST is that health is always present no matter the ailment. If the focus has been on illness, trauma or pain, a connection with a sense of health can be lost. BCST can help you reconnect to the health and vitality within.

After a series of treatments many clients notice an improvement in their symptoms such as:

  • A reduction in pain
  • Improved sleep and digestion
  • Feeling calmer and more relaxed
  • Coping better with stressful situations
  • Improved body awareness and function
  • Feeling more connected and aware
  • A renewed sense of direction and purpose
  • Greater vitality and sense of wellbeing

Acknowledging Trauma

Many conditions have their origins in physical or emotional trauma. Trauma is any experience that overwhelms your system’s ability to cope, which causes the old parts of your brain to to become stuck in a fight or flight or freeze state. If your physiology is stuck, you are stuck in repeating life-or-death protective reflexes. Over time this can contribute to many different symptoms. The good news is that the physiology of trauma is much simpler then the psychology; there is a way to heal trauma in a bottom-up approach where we do not need to understand or remember all the overwhelming things that happened.

BCST works particularly well with the physiology of trauma, gently facilitating resolution through nervous system regulation. The intention of BCST is to renegotiate trauma in a contained, slowly paced way so that the client can feel safe and build their capacity to be with difficult sensations and feelings. This allows their body to process the protective reflexes that are working way too hard and return to a state of homeostasis. In turn the client begins to experience ease, calm, joy and a regained sense of self.
